Witch of Seers

I own two different–and before this mani unused–tarot stamping plates. So when the prompt of Creepy Circus came up, I had a big list of things that I could have painted, but a fortuneteller that predicts terrible futures for their customers was the perfect topic. Plus it let me paint Read More

I really should be going to bed right now, so this post is going to be short and sweet except for the large amounts of photos because omg this magnetic polish is so very pretty. And luckily pretty easy to capture, unlike my Spirit of the Wolf mani. I need Read More

Snow-deer Reindeer

Today’s theme is cute and snowflake-y, but the prompt that inspired this design was #NailsWithIG Friend’s Winter Animal. Now Maniology’s BM-S156 is a stamping plate with nothing but winter animals, so I was definitely using it. And I knooow that Christmas is over, but I could not resist this cute Read More

As much as I enjoy being able to include the next prompt collage for the Pantone challenges, today’s design was ready to post so here we go. It’s been a while since I painted polar bear nail art and an even longer time since my Gone Fishing nail art design. Read More

Today’s theme brought to you by the @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘W’ is for Wolf prompt and my personal goal to use all my holiday stamping plates this year. Also, my heart has been stolen by a magnetic polish. And I suck at using them so that says a lot… Products used Base Read More

January 13, 2020 Lisa 0

[press sample] The last product(s) that Born Pretty sent to me was a package of products meant to support reviewing a new magnetic gel polish: BP-MSS04 Boundless Galaxy. What I didn’t realize at the time was how grateful I should be that they included the magnet. The little $1 paddle Read More

September 25, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today I’m reviewing two items from Born Pretty: a golden stamping polish called “In Fire” and a their space-themed Outer Space-L001 stamping plate.

Magnetic Sol – BBB Review (magnetic gel polish)

February 19, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Wow. I can’t believe I’ve reached the end of my reviews. Having to stop painting my nails because I was reacting to the fumes really backed everything up and now reviewing feels like the new norm. I picked this last polish because I found the khaki-looking nature of 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
