Puppy Love

Valentine’s Day is over but the Instagram prompts keep coming. I don’t mind. I still have plenty of unused things that fit the theme. One thing about working with false nails all the time. I actually had this set painted for years. I can’t even remember what my original plan Read More

Poinsettia nail art using a bright red jelly with white glitter sandwiched inside and a dark blue negative space stamp of poinsettias.

Today’s look is brought to you by poinsettias, a flower that I have painted fairly consistently over the years. (Not nearly as many as roses though.) This is probably the simplest version I’ve ever done since it’s just the base and a negative space pattern of poinsettias on top. I’d Read More

A celestial animal nail design with decals of a silver-outlined celestial deer, rabbit, and owl on a blue jelly sky with starry glitter.

The title of the post is the name of the prompt I painted for. So I’m not being very imaginative there, but I do think I’m improving on the think out of the box thing. Because if I’d painted this a few years ago it would have been some trees Read More

Squirrel nail art with reverse stamping a realistic squirrel and some walnuts and leaves but mostly a tree pattern in a fall rainbow.

Today’s squirrely look is a fall rainbow starting with spring green and running all the way to plumy violet. Living in a different state now, I actually see squirrels fairly often as they barrel through my yard. They have managed to plant many walnut trees according to my weeding. I Read More

It’s the time of year when US kids are heading back to school. The kids back in my old state are already in class while the kids where I live now only have a few weeks of summer left. So I thought I should paint some back to school nail Read More

A electric neon nail art for the New Year in 2023 with firecracker number nail stamping and fireworks. Happy New Year!

Happy 2023!

December 31, 2022 Lisa 2

One last nail art to post before the new year begins and of course that means it’s going to be New Years nail art. And it’s on my natural nails which have been fairly absent except for a few older nail arts I posted the past few months. By necessity Read More

Abstract peppermint nail art using a white crelly filled with red glitter and petals of red jelly using the petal technique.

My brain tends to be a very literal creature. If you give it a prompt for tiger, there will be an actual tiger. Maaaaybe I will do a tiger print. Or maybe I will think of a tiger lily, but reject it because that was not the prompt giver’s original Read More

Happy International Tea Day! A soft tea nail art design in creamy colors featuring stamping decals of cute cups and different kinds of tea.

A Quiet Cuppa

I’ve painted so much coffee nail art over the years, but tea has been sorely neglected by comparison. Much like what’s in my cupboard! I moved and then all my habits of drinking tea went out the window because it was always easier to make the coffee. I’ve started drinking Read More

A deadly combination of holly and skulls for Halloween-esque Christmas nail art on a plum indie polish full of iridescent flakes.

Yeah, I really didn’t get in enough Halloween nail art this year. So I’m giving extra love to my stamping plates that mix it with Christmas. It always feels like a bonus to give a nod to Nightmare Before Christmas, no matter how abstract. The main feature of today’s look Read More

Yule Moon nail art with a sparkly blue sky, full moon and peaceful mansion surrounded by evergreen trees and Christmas tree in the window.

Yule Moon

December 11, 2022 Lisa 2

Today’s look starts with some false nails that I painted years ago and never finished. Just take out the moon and the thumb nail and that’s what was sitting in my drawer for two years until I thought I’d use it for some northern lights prompt on Instagram. I added Read More
