The last time I combined animals and music I was painting the Bremen Town Musicians. It feels like I painted them ages ago, but it’s only been a few months! I already knew that I really wanted to use UR Sugar’s UR-L007’s singing animals as Christmas carolers and then I Read More

I updated to WordPress 5.0 just now and it broke all of the nail polish and stamping plate links. I am working on fixing them, just be aware they aren’t working right now. Also, the Gutenberg editor is dog barf to write posts with. I’ll give it a little more Read More

Where did the month go? LOL Between holiday plans, a small cold, and the name servers losing my site for a few days I’ve ghosted through most of November. The Pokedex challenge fell to the wayside along with all the other challenges. My hope that I’d manage four freehand looks Read More

It’s recreate month at #NailChallengeCollaborative and today I’m revisiting a nail art I painted last year in April and was never quite happy with. It was supposed to be a design that one could wear to work without getting into trouble so I tried to make it something that wouldn’t Read More

This is a design I’ve been wanting to tackle for over a year now. So when #NailCraziesUnite had a Sweet Fruit prompt, there was no question what I was going to do. After all, I’d already gotten strawberries out of my system last year. Well, as far out of my Read More

Confession time! I’ve had this set of glitter polishes for several years and I have never used it. Which is why it’s in its original packaging with a sexy discount sticker. $.33 a bottle is still a loss if you never use the polish. No, wait. I’m sure I can Read More

I had other plans for #26GreatNailArtIdeas French with a Twist prompt, but then I tried some glitter placement with rhombus sequins and that got me to playing with them more and suddenly I had a different idea for French with a Twist. And for some reason it wasn’t Godzilla in Read More

Someday I’m going to use “Belugaria” as not a kind of lava rock because this is a lot like the magma tutorial I followed even though it wasn’t even on my mind when I sketched this out. I do have some lovely spikes I can use. Hmmm… Anyway, this was Read More
