Beautiful sunflower nail art in soft yellows on a shimmery orange background with a wicked flipside stamping of spiders on their webs.

Sunflowers and Spiders

September 30, 2023 Lisa 0

Today’s look is all about sweet, beautiful sunflowers. Until it’s not. Hee hee! I truly love both sides of this nail art for different reasons, but holy cow it was a lot of layers. One layer for the spiders. One layer for the spider webs. Three layers of the magenta 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.

Wizard School

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

A celestial animal nail design with decals of a silver-outlined celestial deer, rabbit, and owl on a blue jelly sky with starry glitter.

Autumn Nights

The title of the post is the name of the prompt I painted for. So I’m not being very imaginative there, but I do think I’m improving on the think out of the box thing. Because if I’d painted this a few years ago it would have been some trees Read More

A sweet fox nail art using watercolor-esque fox water decals on top of a pale yellow crelly base with metallic floral prints stamped on top.

Water Decal Foxes

It’s funny how we associate different things with different seasons even though they often exist all year round. Like…pumpkins being a fall thing makes sense because that’s when they are ready to be inserted into your face or plopped on your front stoop (this year I’m seeing a lot of Read More

Dragon nail art with a complex magnetic green/aqua base and nail stamping of scales, a dragon eye, and an eastern dragon with flower accents.

Dragon Scale

September 22, 2023 Lisa 0

The dragons are here and they are magnetic! Esmaltes da Kelly/Phoenix makes such amazingly complex magnetic nail polishes. It’s terrible for my wallet, but great for my nails. With a prompt like Animal Print + magnetic, it was a simple decision to pick scales and a gorgeous green/aqua magnetic. And Read More

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

Treasure Cove

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 simple floral nail art in purples and browns with flower and butterfly stamping decals and the word "today".

Floral Today

I was supposed to post this clear back in April. It was for a challenge. With a collage. The only colors I could use were purple and brown and I did a fairly decent job even though I was trying to come back from a painting drought. But I kept Read More

Pumpkin nail art with black and white pumpkins spelling "harvest" against a bright fuchsia nail polish w/orange glitter and a Halloween cat.

Harvest Pumpkin

Did you think I was done playing around with bright backgrounds and black and white subjects just because I painted Scarecrow vs Crow? You would be wrong, although possibly today’s look has satiated me for a while. We’re starting with a bright fuchsia/magenta nail polish with orange glitter and adding Read More

Squirrel nail art with reverse stamping a realistic squirrel and some walnuts and leaves but mostly a tree pattern in a fall rainbow.

Autumn Squirrel

September 14, 2023 Lisa 0

Today’s squirrely look is a fall rainbow starting with spring green and running all the way to plumy violet. Living in a different state now, I actually see squirrels fairly often as they barrel through my yard. They have managed to plant many walnut trees according to my weeding. I 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
