A cool blue pool party mani with stamping images of watermelon floats and ladies relaxing at a pool surrounded by giant palm fronds.

Keeping Cool at the Pool

I really thought I’d post more last month. I had all this nail art I wanted to do. And instead I’m posting one of the last two things I painted super late. Well, it’s summer and we’re not only getting the kids all to ourselves but we had a bunch Read More

A layered landscape mani of a woodland with a path running through that a woman is biking down. Includes secret Sasquatch/Bigfoot.

Woodland Bike Ride

March 7, 2022 Lisa 1

Today’s look was a lesson in how difficult those layered landscape nail art designs are. Also, I am kicking myself because I forgot a few plates I had that would have offered a few better options. Oh, well. I learned a lot from painting this one and still love my Read More

A rainbow skittle pond nail art with hibiscus stamping decals sandwiched in layers of red, purple, blue, yellow, and orange jelly polish.

Sloppy Hibiscus Pond – Born Pretty jelly review

January 17, 2022 Lisa 2

This isn’t an official review. Born Pretty did not send me these polishes for review. But I bought four of them during the Singles Day sale and I thought I’d use them together in a quick (and sloppy) mani to see how they worked. So this is very rainbow and Read More

Patriotic nail art for the United States of Zombies with a red white and blue crelly and zombie stamping decals.

United States of Zombie

June was hard for some reason. I had to scale my nail art plans back to only the stuff I really, really wanted to paint and the @halloweenforevercollab was one of them. I really, really want to not miss this one all year. I’ve come close a few times, but Read More

Happy May the 4th (be with you)! Star Wars fan everywhere are hopefully finding something geeky to do. Naturally, I painted my nails. It’s been several years since my last Star Wars mani and I decided to go both more complex and focus on more recent releases such as The Read More

Nail art of dinosaur eggs (one broken with yolk, one glow in the dark with a baby dinosaur, and one just hatched) stamped on a blood red glitter filled base.

Life Finds a Way

April 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I have managed to get my hands on all four of Moyou London’s Jurassic Park stamping plates. So instead of painting typical Easter nail art for the #AZNailArtChallenge ‘Y’ is for Yolk or even more Gudetama nail art (which I do want to do more of some time), I went Read More

A soft blue-green mani of pond life, mostly frogs and one fish stamping decal with lily pads and other pond greenery.

On Frog Pond

March 16, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look is yet again something I’ve wanted to paint for a while. I had a few BC stamping plates with lily pad images that matched each other: one with a frog and one with a fish. I always thought they belonged in some kind of nail art together. I Read More

Two Year of the Ox nail art designs: one in classical red and gold (and black) and the other in the year's lucky colors: yellow, blue, and purple.

Year of the Ox (x2)

February 18, 2021 Lisa 2

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More

A super bling Christmas mani starting with a red/green thermal polish, bright green swirls, and dancing reindeer stamping decals.

Reindeer Holiday

December 25, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s Christmas! And I have one last reindeer/Christmas mani to share. It has been a month for reindeer nail art since this is the fourth time they’re showing up. Although if you count how many designs I’ve repainted it’s been all reindeer all the time for me. 😭 I decided Read More

Monochrome red reindeer nail art with deep red polishes and a wintery scene created from layered stamping. Merry Christmas!

Red Reindeer Christmas

December 17, 2020 Lisa 3

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More
