Since I’d so recently painted a monochrome blue mani I didn’t really want to have to go through that many test swatches again any time soon. But #WhenColoursCollide had a blue theme so I went with a crazy water marble, which is easier to pick colors for. I’m really happy Read More

Coffee Blues 2.0

I thought I’d sneak in another recreation for #NailChallengeCollaborative before the month ended. This was actually from October of last year so it really hasn’t been too long, but it’s also one of my favorite themes: coffee! I liked the idea of a blue monochrome coffee mani, but I took Read More

Did you think I was done posting nail art today? Oh, you are mistaken because it is @sharnailstar’s birthday and @dianavnisselroy organized a birthday collage for her. The theme was to do a greyscale version of one of Sharon’s nail art designs. I searched around for something that spoke to Read More

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I Read More

I’m really bummed that I couldn’t do all of the prompts for the #firedazedsept2017 challenge this month, but I just couldn’t pass up Mushrooms. So I combined it with the #31DC2017 prompt of Black and White and the #nailsunitedseptchallenge prompt of Garden and here we are! I started off painting Read More

We’re at the sixth day of the #31DC2017 and hopefully you’ve realized I’m painting on falsies so when my nail shape changes tomorrow it’s not a shock. 😉 I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to paint a recognizable cactus, but I think I made it work. It’s Read More

We’re at the fifth day of the #31DC2017 and I’m still hopeful about keeping up. Lot of blog posts though, so I am sorry if this is brief. I know a lily pond is probably a pretty typical nature subject–I mean, I’ve done a lily pond manicure before and it’s Read More

We’re at the fourth day of the #31DC2017 and so far my health is hanging in there. I’m hopeful about not falling behind. 🙂 Today I decided to feature one of my favorite kinds of plants: bonsai trees! I framed it with a round-ish frame in the hope of giving Read More

We’re at the third day of the #31DC2017 and I’m back on track again (except for the part where I’ve been feeling a little sick). I’m also trying a new challenge on Instagram that’s in Spanish: #liganailistachallenge. It is a month of VS. prompts and today I chose Day instead Read More

Look at that, we already have the second nail art from my Rainbow Nature set ready to be posted! 😉 Happily, this one is on time for today’s Orange prompt for the 31 Day Challenge this year. Looking back I wish I’d tried painting the back of a leaf instead Read More
