Boo Bees

Why, yes, I am a child at heart. So once I’d noticed that one of the stamping plates I had both made a pun that was a little bit naughty while also being innocent and had a Halloween element, I had to do it. Had to. And that is why Read More

A kawaii Halloween / devil nail art with a neon rainbow gradient background stamp and plump demon stamping decal with green eyes.

The Devil is Neon

July 1, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s been a while since I had true neon polishes to stamp with since my Mundo de Unas bottles got streaky. So I purchased a neon set from Maniology in May. And, ugh, the timing is not great because this is a very heavy Maniology post shortly after they gave Read More

A white and purple ghostly nail art with negative space stamping, boo-ing ghosts and glow in the dark action!

Ghosts Boo You (It glows!)

October 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Negative space ghost images are fairly common on Halloween-themed stamping plates, but I hadn’t gotten around to using any of them until now. I bracketed my inner-nail ghosts with the negative space stamping. But this mani really became extra special because of the indie polish I used as the base. Read More

Spooky Cats

September’s Mani X Me box had a Pet Cemetery theme so, of course, I could not resist. And once I realized that I could actually put a hold on my subscription and skip the boxes where I wasn’t interested in everything (generally the stamping polishes are colors I already have Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 1. Fish is a blowfish. Wisp is a pair of ghosts. Bulky is an elephant. Radio is a radio.

Inktober 2020 – Week 1

October 5, 2020 Lisa 6

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve been wanting to participate in Inktober for the past few years, but it always competes with my desire to paint as much Halloween nail art as possible. However, pandemics suck away my creative Read More

Call me a dork if you will, but I have so many Things I want to paint for Halloween. Oh, the lists I have made trying to plan things out so I wouldn’t miss a big want-to-do for a small one. I have lists for polishes, stamping plates, and color Read More

Spooky Pusheen - Hermit Werds - a Pusheen ghost emerging from a jack-o-lantern freehand painted on a royal blue glitter-y jelly base

Spooky Pusheen

October 13, 2018 Lisa 1

Pusheen is a pretty well-known little cat. She appeared on the internet in 2010 in a comic strip written by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff and by the time I realized she was a Thing with a Name, she was everywhere. (I’m culturally slow sometimes.) While the original creators continue Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – XL-028 stamping plate

October 2, 2018 Lisa 1

[press sample] Group scene nail art is a lot of fun and something I haven’t tackled yet even though I have several stamping plates with them. Today I finally embraced the look with an image from Beauty BigBang’s XL-028 stamping plate. It’s a fun image with a lot of silly Read More

Thankfully Halloween - Hermit Werds - purple magnetic polish with spooky stamping (spider, ghouls, bats, haunted house) on top

Thankfully Halloween

September 24, 2018 Lisa 0

I’m back with one of my recreations of last year’s designs that I wasn’t happy with. I’ve skipped around to return to a purple magnetic polish look that I made to express my thankfulness on how much I enjoy painting nails with my stepdaughter who often asks for Halloween stamps. Read More
