When I first got started in nail art, galaxy manis used to only mean some kind of sponged gradient with stars added on top, but these days there’s such a wide range of techniques to play with. Instead of a gradient, why not use a magnetic polish? Especially a gel Read More

Valentine’s Day is over but the Instagram prompts keep coming. I don’t mind. I still have plenty of unused things that fit the theme. One thing about working with false nails all the time. I actually had this set painted for years. I can’t even remember what my original plan Read More

I’ve really been hitting the whole Valentine’s Day thing much harder this year than I usually do, but sometimes it’s fun to just go all in. Except in colors. I just looked back at this month’s progress and I haven’t exactly been indulging in soft and sweet love-y pastels. Well, Read More

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I hope you’ve found some way to make it special for you regardless of your romantic status. Honestly, I consider this a chocolate holiday more than anything else. And if you have to buy your own chocolate, remember that doing so means you are getting exactly Read More

This is the first post on the blog that is not safe for work and honestly it’s a little garbage that it’s getting stuck in that category but apparently women’s nipples are athema so here we are. I want to be clear: this nail art is meant to be silly. Read More

I really wasn’t sure if I would ever get around to using the Maximalist ManixMe plates that were in last year’s February box. They kinda fell under things that are useful, but aren’t particularly my style and so it’s a dice throw if I will think to use them. Luckily, Read More

If you’ve seen my other Chinese New Year nail art designs, you’ll know that I like to bring out my longer falsies for this particular holiday. (And for some reason I favor shorter falsies for the end of December one…huh…) This year I kept my classically colored red/black/gold set very Read More

I feel like we transitioned very suddenly from desaturated winter nail art to a neon punch in the face and I can’t apologize. It’s February and pink is in the air. Today’s look is all about loving llamas and llamas in love. I don’t know where my love of llamas Read More

Hot Chocolate Weather

It’s already so warm where I live that I’m not sure a hot chocolate mani really fits, but a prompt is a prompt and I already had this painted. Two days ago I noticed the first snow drop bud in my yard. I went to take a picture of it Read More

Monstrous family portrait nail art with a sweet green wallpaper background and reverse stamping decals of framed monster strewn with cobwebs.

Dead the Halls

January 8, 2024 Lisa 0

Today’s look just didn’t want to come together in my head. The prompt was Dead the Halls and I had plenty of ideas that I could paint for it, but nothing really stood out to me. My sticking point was that I had this monster Christmas wreath image I wanted Read More
