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 1

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

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

The Scream

October 2, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I’m kicking off my Halloween season with a modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch. Because it’s the season of screaming! (Except don’t. Because that creates more water droplets. 😱) I was really hoping to make the simple lines of the stamping image pop Read More

[press sample] Well, I thought I’d be posting this on Monday, but we’re here at last: my last Beauty BigBang review. Today we’re looking at a different line of glow in the dark powders with D1635-3A, which has a lovely purple glow, and a stamping plate with cute little landscapes Read More

Summoning the Spider Queen – BBB Review (glow in the dark powder)

October 14, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I’m always excited when spider or bug prompts show up. So today’s design jumped ship from @clairestelle8’s Halloween prompts to @glamnailchallenge’s spider prompt. I really wanted to explore some ugly prettiness and neutral shades with just a touch of color. So I painted in all neutrals and ended Read More

[press sample] Have you been missing the glow in the dark stuff? I have. Why can I never get around to painting them more?! Well today’s glow did not even require painting because I used Beauty BigBang’s glow in the dark heart sequins (J4196-1C) along with the last stamping plate Read More

I’d originally meant to review this glow in the dark powder with the bat manicure that you will be seeing tomorrow, but #liganailistachallenge had a dragon prompt and I had this lovely image of Malifecent as a dragon on Maniology’s Happily Never After BM-XL193 stamping plate. How could I not Read More

Godzilla

July 1, 2018 Lisa 0

When #GlamNailsChallengeJune said “city”, I thought “giant Kaijū destroying the city” because I’ve been wanting to paint that sort of thing for a while. It was just too tempting since I have glow in the dark powders to use. I also felt like I could count this as an Inspired Read More
