Cactus at Red Rock

This nail art design started with a color scheme. I knew I had this lovely brown with Pantone’s Tawny Birch and I wanted to paint something cozy with it. I paired it with this deep red holographic polish and the whole thing felt rather western to me so I went Read More

The Fishery

November 24, 2020 Lisa 2

Today we’re journeying to the past and a fishy mani that I painted clear back in 2019. What a wonderful year (compared to this year). 😜 It kind of blows my mind that people can spend several thousand dollars to purchase one koi fish, but yes, they do. I think Read More

Bridge to the Heavens

My nail art has been much simpler lately due to both time and challenge prompt constraints, but this design is as extra as I get using 9 polishes, 5 stamping plates, and 11 advanced stamping decals (for just one hand). You’ll understand why when you see the prompt image that Read More

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More

Generally speaking I post my nail art to the blog first. This design has been on Instagram for a while because it was last week’s #pantone2019winterchallenge: Frost Gray. So I had to post it on Sunday even though I didn’t have the energy to write up a blog post. Products Read More

Hope you’re having a Happy Holo-ween! Halloween is just about over so let’s end this with a jack-o-lantern planet full of candy.

Coral Chrysanthemum

It seems like I only paint coral nails when it comes from a nail challenge prompt (#LigaNailistaChallenge) and then I just want to go full on coral. So today I have another coral monochrome. You can see the one I painted in 2017 here [Edit 1-16-2018: Sorry, it was a Read More

Today is National Milk Day so I thought it was time to share this mani. Also, my apologies for lying about posting new nail art the next day. I had a design planned out and partially painted, but my heart wouldn’t let me finish it until I made a few Read More

Previously I said I had two color-combo goals for October. One was gold and the other is today’s salmon and teal graveyard design complete with reaper (graveminder) and zombies lurching in the distance. Don’t worry. I’m sure all they want is a hug. LOL I’ve been wanting to work on Read More
