Snake Skin

So I’m actually a day behind because I loved this too much to take it off right away and do the next manicure on my list. The combination of two colors on the snake pattern stamping plate just works really well. I initially meant to do a metallic stamp first Read More

‘R’ is for Rubber Ducky

The ABC Challenge has started back up again with ‘R’. And what can be more ‘R’ than a rubber ducky? I’ve added stripes in the background so I can combine it with the 31-Day Challenge and free-handed the ducks on my silicon nail art mat. Phew! I think this will Read More

I love a good butterfly manicure. Especially the full-wing kind. I tried to keep this manicure as simple as possible because I had a lot of sewing to do for a steampunk convention. Sometimes simple works. I’ve seen people free-hand the wings really well, but I had a stamping plate Read More

Trying to keep it simple since I have so much going on right now. I always love a good jelly with an interesting stamp color on top. The little dash of light shimmery blue just made me happier. I really love Revlon’s Parfumerie “Surf Spray”. It’s such a delicately cool Read More

I’ve wanted to do a yellow submarine manicure for a while. Uber Chic’s nail plate and this nail challenge offered the perfect opportunity. I focused on a few jelly nail sandwiches with white stamping and a tiny bit of yellow gradient and a few solid yellow nails with obviously white Read More

Oh, yes. I am going to try to do this. I have big plans right in the middle of the month so I already know I will not be able to finish the challenge in a solid block of 31 days. However. I do intend to try as best I Read More

‘Q’ is for Quack

September 1, 2016 Lisa 0

It has been a hectic week and I’ve spent more time on my cosplay wings than on my nail art. So I am late. Late enough that I made a placeholder post (which is probably cheating?) so I would still be included in on the inLinkz. I wanted to do Read More

‘E’ is for Equestria Girls

So waaay back when the ABC Challenge was at the letter ‘e’, I wanted to do Equestria Girls. And I thought it would be so awesome to draw my inspiration from the latest movie My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Friendship Games. So it wasn’t just each of the mane Read More

So I’m late posting this. My apologies. I’ve had a couple of days where I was dead exhausted and posting was not as high on my list as sitting upright on the couch and falling asleep like a small child. Dignity. I have it occasionally. Not this week. But I Read More

I started with the base colors in a gradient (except for the black) so that I wouldn’t have to worry too much about full coverage with the glitter. Then I dabbed on the glitters with a sponge and top coated. And then top coated a couple more times (at some Read More
