Pumpkin Delivery

October 21, 2023 Lisa 0

I didn’t have a bat prompt for this Halloween, so of course I had to find a way to sneak them in because I love bats. I had this design sketched up last year of little bats delivering pumpkins so when the jack-o-lantern prompt came up, I knew what I Read More

A trick or treat nail art with cute candy corns dressed up as bats, devils, witches, mummies and more with Halloween candy on the side.

Trick or Treat

Woof! I had a few days there where I just couldn’t get myself to paint and then I got cold-sick for the first time in many years. Blech! But I’m mostly better and back with a cute candy corn nail design because candy corns dressed up to go trick or Read More

A practicing witch/wizard nail art with decals of potions, wands, crystal balls, etc. on a thermal brown to lilac flakie filled polish.

I know a lot of us have…additional feelings about anything smacking of Harry Potter since Rowlings can’t keep her mouth shut about what a transphobe she is. So this was a hard collab for many and some of the people that would have joined in didn’t. And some of us Read More

Pirate nail art with tons of pirate details (parrots, treasure chest, gold island, maps, pirate hat, pirate ship, lighthouse, kraken, etc).

Ahoy, friends! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day and I’m celebrating with this booty-filled mani, which apparently meant working on it last minute because my brain wanted to finish three other manis before getting around to this one. Oh, well. It’s my hobby so I can be ahead and behind Read More

A batty nail art with a background of blue plaid stamped over olive reflective glitter and music and bat stamping decals.

Rockin’ Plaid

September 12, 2023 Lisa 0

Today’s look mixes rock music, bats, and plaid so I guess we’ll have to call it grunge. A fantastic era of fashion that I participated in by purchasing the most horrible plaid skirt from Walmart. It was a half wrap, had no pleats even though I love pleats, and fastened Read More

A cozy, matte scarf-wrapped fox nail art with more stamping decals of winter gear, roses, and snowflakes on a copper magnetic base.

Am I going to jinx things if I say that I’m still trying to use every image on the Nicole Diary Fashion Trends ND-002 stamping plate? Because I am and today’s look puts me at the halfway mark for the larger images. I even used my favorite image: the fox! Read More

Krampus nail art on a red/green thermal polish with circles of plaid pattern and Halloween-esque things and rejection of jollyness.

Merry Krampus

I really wanted to paint some Krampus nail art last year. I had two Hit the Bottle Bah Humbug stamping plates and I was ready. Sadly, I didn’t have the capacity and posted maybe once that month. So I was extra happy to paint today’s look. And it also included 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

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

Happy Hanukkah nail art featuring menorah and dreidel stamping decals on a rich, green patterned background.

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
