A dark burgundy to nude with glitter baby boomer French tip with silly hungry cat stamping decals on top and "Love at first bite" nail art.

Love at First Bite

February 15, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look is another design I’ve been wanting to paint for a few years. It’s also one I wanted to post around Valentine’s Day as both an alternate perspective of the day and an anti-Valentine mani. And if you follow me on Instagram, I actually did manage to post it Read More

A Valentine's Day candy nail art with nail foil-filled candy stamping decals all on a dusty blue to magenta thermal polish with red to copper flakies.

Foil Candies

February 3, 2021 Lisa 2

A while ago I had a brief delusion that I would use gilding nail foils more. They are fun and shiny! So I bought four more colors of them, none of which are used in this candy nail art design, and none of which have been used for over a Read More

Blue and pink nail art of a gentleman cat dressing up in a bow tie to woo his lady in the city using stamping decals.

Gentleman Cat Woos His Lady

January 21, 2021 Lisa 2

So I bought a circle stamping plate years ago that had an image of this little cat wearing a bow tie. And I always thought he was a bit of a nerd dressing up to impress his (cat) lady friend. (He does. Bow ties are great.) This week I finally Read More

A medium olive/chartreuse nail art with luck, playing cards, dice, and heart/club/spade/diamond stamping decals.

National Playing Card Day

December 28, 2020 Lisa 2

Did you know that today is National Card Playing day? I have known it for the past three years since I keep meaning to paint some card-themed nail art. I keep collecting these card playing stamping plates and I needed an excuse to use them. And I just kept missing Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who Read More

Quilting themed nail art with decals of sewing machine, bobbins, cloth swatches, and patterns to make a beautiful pink and green quilt.

Quilting with Love

November 20, 2020 Lisa 2

When the prompt ‘Q’ is for Quilt came up for the @aznailartchallenge I immediately thought about my dragon quilt nail art where I literally painted and then stamped on square swatches of polish and applied them to some false nails. I really loved the concept and wanted to revisit it, Read More

Soft pink and grey nail art with handsome tiger suitor and heart pattern.

No Lion Hearts

February 19, 2020 Lisa 2

Today’s nail art was inspired by a song, but not a new one. Girl’s Generation (or SNSD) hasn’t put out a new song since 2017 and the song I thought of immediately when I saw the tiger image on Nicole Diary’s Fashion Trends ND-002 is from their 2015 album Lion Read More

Simple and bright pink nail art with heart and love letters stamping decals.

All My Love Letters

February 16, 2020 Lisa 2

(Really, I would have just called this “Love Letters”, but I already used that title.) Today I have a really simple love-filled nail design that probably would have been perfect to post on Valentine’s Day, but did I want to finish editing my photos and write everything up on Friday? Read More

Chocolate-y heart nail art for Valentine's Day in non-traditional colors.

Love is a Rocky Road

February 4, 2020 Lisa 3

Am I talking about chocolate ice cream with nuts and marshmallows or is this all about how love is a journey which can often be difficult? Nah, it’s all about this chocolate-y Pantone color called Rocky Road for #pantone2019winterchallenge. I decided to go real simple with this nail art and Read More

Pink and white thermal mani with adorable heart and cactus nail decals and gold shimmer.

Love is Prickly

January 23, 2020 Lisa 0

Now it’s not Valentine’s Day yet, but it is time for the letter ‘V’ in the #AZNailArtChallenge so Valentine’s Day is a natural pick for something that everyone can participate in. I was more than happy to use one of the first designs I painted when I was getting back Read More
