Halloween Silhouettes

This was a set I’d wanted to do for a while because I’ve owned my DXE stamping plates for so long, but I didn’t have enough long and tall silhouettes to make a set of five until Beauty BigBang sent me their XL-028 stamping plate. Set complete! This nail art Read More

@nailsmyth posted an amaaazing metallic water marble using KleanColor polishes and I had them so I really wanted to try my hand at it too. The water marbling gods were not with me even with the humidifier on. The polishes were just drying too fast for me to get any Read More

I have been part of the nail artist community on Instagram for about a year now and I recently found out one of the ways I’ve left myself out of the loop. Stories are apparently being used to announce that someone is putting a birthday collage together. Then anyone who Read More

I just can’t do enough cat nail art, obviously. The hard part of this mani was settling on which metallic polish colors I wanted to use because I’d always planned on using a bunch and then having black as my one color. It’s not cheating if you were plotting it Read More

I do love the coloring of a peacock. If I couldn’t choose rainbow as my favorite color, I’d probably have to pick peacock. It’s a testament to how much nail art I want to do that I have only labeled one other nail art as peacock, but it’s still a Read More

Guys, I missed International Coffee Day. I am so sad. But I turned that sorrow into a calendar reminder for next year so as long as I don’t do the 31 Day Challenge again, I think we’re good. And I won’t. Because the 31 Day Challenge this year left me Read More

It’s the 27th day of the #31DC2017 and I am finally caught up. Also, I am tired because instead of keeping things simple, I decided to make really complex advanced stamping decals. Like an idiot. #31DC2017 – Inspired by a Pattern (Day 26) #Clairestelle8Sep – Metallic (bit late, oops) #FireDazedSept2017 Read More

Originally, I was planning on an orange mani for #31DC2017 (Inspired by a Color). But the greatest number of untried polishes I have seems to be in the pink/red family so I picked Colores de Carol’s “Cupid’s Vacation” for my inspiration. It’s this gorgeous pink holographic polish with a few Read More

Silver Pheasant

September 15, 2017 Lisa 2

Just as I was getting into nail art sticking feathers onto your nails was starting to be a trend (as far as I can tell). I never did it. So I thought what could be more delicate and fall-like than pheasant feathers which I already have? So I stuck these Read More

Hand me the prompts Metallic and Stripes and you can bet I’m going to come up with something steampunk first off and go with it. Fortunately I had a beautiful holographic brown metallic polish in my order from Shinespark Polish to play with. It was unfortunately dark outside when I Read More
