I am sooo behind on posting. To the point where I rolled a dice to decide which nail art I would post first on my way to catching back up. The happy thing is that I still made all my group deadlines so I was able to be in the Read More

I hope you were luckier than me and got to see the lunar eclipse if you wanted to. It was cloudy where I live, which is probably going to be the story of the rest of my life. I’ll take it for the rain. Still, it’s starting to get rather Read More

Narwhale nail art with rainbow swirls on a peach background and a freehand painted narwhale painted on top "Tap that fish!".

Tap that Fish

November 3, 2022 Lisa 0

About five years ago, Adam Ravetch captured the first ever footage of a narwhal using its tusk to hunt fish. They literally tap the fish to stun them and then swim up the rest of the way to nom them down. I thought that was hilarious and, of course, it Read More

A deep red and prugly green stiletto mani with the Disney-esque evil queen from Snow White and her poison apple. Eat me!

Eat the Poison Apple

Today’s look was inspired by the second baddest Disney queen: the evil queen. I’m not sure she even had a name, but I love her nose when she goes full crone. I don’t think I’m alone in loving her elderly form so much more than the haughty younger one. She’s Read More

A modern red, orange, and yellow (mustard) cactus nail art combined with abstract shapes to create a fun minimalist look.

You may have noticed that I’m using a lot of false nails lately. Well, this is the last mani I painted before I had to chop my nails short. Y’see, that time a few months ago when I shut my finger in the door has come back to haunt my Read More

Graffiti nail art protesting Roe vs Wade being overturned with a neon freehand painted uterus flipping the fimbriae + "No Choice".

No Choice Graffiti

July 20, 2022 Lisa 0

In case it wasn’t clear enough when I posted my own thoughts on Maniology’s non-support for women’s reproductive rights, I am very much pro-choice. And in fact, I have been wondering why we on the side of choice continue to allow so-called “pro-lifers” to call themselves such. We know it’s Read More

Chinese New Year of the Tiger nail art in their lucky colors (blue, grey, white, orange) w/nail stamping decals of tigers & Chinese characters.

Lucky Year of the Tiger

July 9, 2022 Lisa 2

I’ve fallen into a pattern when it comes to Chinese New Year. It’s always a good idea to paint one in red/gold/black colors. They are the tradition and are a better resource for others later on. However, I like bringing rainbows where people use neutrals (or in this case a Read More

Golden pineapple nail art on blue stiletto falsies with a beautiful art deco lace pattern stamped in the background and half moons.

Royal Pineapple

July 7, 2022 Lisa 1

Today I have a fruity look with golden pineapples on a sophisticated lace art deco pattern. Then I threw half moons into the mix and wrote up a quick mini tutorial on how to recreate the look. I honestly don’t know what it is about pineapples, but making them the Read More

A raisin-colored night sky strawberry moon nail art with a full pink freehanded moon + strawberry gnome and strawberry plant stamping decals.

Strawberry Moon

Well…between the chaos of visitors and breaking nails I managed to miss the collab deadline for this nail art, but I’m still posting on the day of the Strawberry Moon! This nail art turned out slightly plainer that my original sketch, but I still have lots of strawberries, a full Read More

A smoky blue lily pond mani with the reflection of the flower moon shining forth, spring cherry blossom stamping decals, and koi.

Flower Moon

Did you know there’s a different “moon” name for every full moon of the month? I kinda was aware that it was a thing (and I suspect every moon has multiple names since in June we can do mead, honey or strawberries), but I joined a moon collab where we Read More
