Another day, another manicure posting later at night than I could wish. Well, you’ll see very quickly how many photos I had to edit with this one. Worth it. That’s what I tell myself at night… Anyway, the nail art I piled on top of this lovely polish was inspired Read More

Love Letters – BBB Review (stamping plate)

February 13, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I did manage to snag one of Beauty BigBang’s Valentine’s Day stamping plates: BeautyBigBang XL-046. I know, I know. You miss the Christmas/winter made to work designs. All good things must come to an end to make room for new good Stuff. 😉 BeautyBigBang XL-046 This stamping plate Read More

Snowman Wonderland

This design was certainly a trial. I started the month with the illusion that I’d be following the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts. Nope! Okay…I thought I could combine the first two prompts of Snowman and Mittens and then follow the rest normally. I had two snowmen stamping images wearing mittens. Nope! My Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – duochrome stamping set J6504TM

November 29, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] I have been coveting Beauty BigBang’s J6504TM set of duochrome stamping polishes since they came out a few months ago. Partly because rainbow is my favorite color and duochromes add a tiny slice of a rainbow to any nail art they are used in. a Partly because the Read More

October 10, 2018 Lisa 0

I’d originally meant to review this glow in the dark powder with the bat manicure that you will be seeing tomorrow, but #liganailistachallenge had a dragon prompt and I had this lovely image of Malifecent as a dragon on Maniology’s Happily Never After BM-XL193 stamping plate. How could I not Read More

Quatrefoil Vampire Squid

October 4, 2018 Lisa 0

While the title of today’s nail art doesn’t trip off the tongue delightfully I thought painting a deep sea creature whose scientific name means “vampire squid from hell” to be quite appropriate for October. But the truth of the vampire squid is not horrific at all. According to this paper, Read More

[Press Sample] Stephanie, the founder of Dimension Nails, reached out to me through Instagram to see if I would like to review some of her products. I happily agreed the minute I realized she had a mustard-colored polish. LOL I picked out three polishes and she had them shipped out Read More
