Happy Hanukkah

It’s incomprehensible to me why anti-Semitism persists in existing, but it really feels like it’s shouting a lot louder right now. So even though I am not a Jew (or a Christian or anything but someone who can cherry pick any holiday they want), I thought it was time to Read More

Pre-Christmas nail art in rich oranges and holographic with a peaceful home surrounded by trees and Santa preparing presents.

Santa’s Preparations

Yep, I’m still behind on posts. But! I’ve still got a schedule for new nail art for Christmas so I’m gonna intersperse the catch-up with the keep-up. Monochrome can be so hard but so fun. In 2020 I started a little collection of nail art in different monochrome color schemes Read More

Yin yang nail art w/a koi fish yin yang stamping decal on stiletto shaped false nails covered in red, blue, and green flakies.

Yin Yang Koi

June 24, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

A brocade-like Thailand nail art featuring Buddah meditating over a lotus blossom + a Thai flame fabric pattern over a flakie purple polish.

Thailand Meditations

March 29, 2022 Lisa 0

My husband spent two years in Thailand when he was much younger and still speaks a little Thai. So needless to say we both would love to visit Thailand. Mind you I am not fond of the high humidity high heat combination so we’re definitely not staying, but I want Read More

A fiery brick rose crelly nail art with red zodiac stamping images of stylized goat and girl with horn and the symbol for Aries.

Zodiac Collection: Aries

March 28, 2022 Lisa 0

I’m back with the third installment from the Zodiac Collection. We are in the time of Aries, a firey member of the zodiac that is also associated with goats and the color red. I went with a flame motif and used Maniology’s ManixMe zodiac stamping plates to guide this look Read More

A soft orange smoosh mani with cute bus and camera stamping decals with plants growing out of and around them.

Bus Ride to Somewhere

March 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought about by more Instagram prompts: smoosh marble and bus. I knew I had a beautiful image of a bus on KADS’ Flower-16 so I decided to go with that. I followed it up with talk of travel because it really felt like a school trip kind Read More

Beautiful berry mani with a textured accent nail + silver snowflake nail charm offset by stamping decals of scary bloody snowmen.

Scary Snowmen

It’s time for a non-catch up post where we celebrate Halloween (again) as if it’s happening all year because why not. This month’s prompt was Frosty the Scary Man and I had a lot of ideas that were too ambitious for my current energy levels. Like…I could feel myself procrastinating Read More

French nail art on a flakie-filled cream crelly with stamping decals of delicious French food like wine, croissants, and french press coffee.

Simple French Cuisine

August 8, 2021 Lisa 2

It’s funny how the French are associated with cooking that takes many specialized cooking utensils and techniques and also the simplest and most delicious of foods. (Mind you, I am aware that making your own croissants would take a lot of work. So many layers…) I definitely can recommend all Read More

A yellow to bright green thermal polish with sweetly flattering orange and lemon stamping decals on top and more happy food on the thumb.

Citrus Kindness

June 25, 2021 Lisa 2

Okay, the title to this mani isn’t all that creative, but the main stamping images came from the Kindness is Magic stamping plate from The Stamping Shop Collab, so I just went with it. And since my theme was already going to be citrus, I decided to go with citrus-y Read More

A pastel wintery nail art with snowflake-like flower stamping decals in green, aqua, and orange.

Frosty Flowers

January 10, 2021 Lisa 1

Today I have a winter floral nail art to share that I luckily painted before the 6th. Lucky because my concentration has been shot for the last few days. I am not even sure what I did most of yesterday. I know I did not get this post out like Read More
