Sea of Jellyfish

January 15, 2021 Lisa 1

Today I’ve combined two of the nail art challenges I paint for the most: #AZNailArtChallenge and #Pantone2020WinterChallenge. Their themes went together really well because I had ‘S’ is for Sea and Pantone’s Blue Depths, a dusty dark blue. Sounds like deep waters to meeee! And then there’s another challenge I’m Read More

Bird nail art with red bird, robin, and bluebird water decals placed on a white and blue thermal polish with shimmering ferns stamped on top.

International Bird Day

January 5, 2021 Lisa 2

It’s International Bird Day today, so of course it’s time for some bird nail art! Now I don’t have a bird feeder because I don’t want additional bird poop around my house, but I do love little song birds. Particularly in art. They’re just cute little pops of nature and Read More

A soft blue, purple, and pink nail art of cute bunnies living in the clouds with an aqua glow in the dark special effect.

Sky Bunnies, Cloud Meadows

December 1, 2020 Lisa 2

Happy December! I’m back with some glow in the dark goodness! A great way to start any month on the blog. I posted this a little early on Instagram to finish out @liganailista’s monthly challenge with a cloud prompt. And Beauty BigBang’s XL-082 stamping plate had the perfect scene with Read More

Cactus-themed nail art with a tawny brown and holographic dark red polish and gold geometric frames with potted cacti.

Cactus at Red Rock

November 29, 2020 Lisa 2

This nail art design started with a color scheme. I knew I had this lovely brown with Pantone’s Tawny Birch and I wanted to paint something cozy with it. I paired it with this deep red holographic polish and the whole thing felt rather western to me so I went Read More

A rich green mani with two accent nails. The first has a brown jelly base and many small avocado decals and the second is a closeup of an avocado with the pit showing.

Avocado My Heart

November 10, 2020 Lisa 2

Because I love avocado. Maybe it’s considered basic to love them, but so what? Load up your toast with some mashed green goodness and maybe enjoy this Comedy Central skit defending being basic. Because we all need the little things to help lift up our spirits and keep us from Read More

A simple fall nail art with stampings of leaves, pumpkins, and other harvest-related items on an apricot jelly polish background.

Pumpkin Harvest of Fall

November 6, 2020 Lisa 3

Today I have a simple nail art on top of a gorgeous nearly-neutral jelly polish. It’s been the first time in a long while that I have combined two nail art challenges, but the fall color scheme from #pantone2020winterchallenge fit well with #aznailartchallenge’s ‘P’ is for Pumpkin prompt. Plus I Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 4. Dizzy is a tea cup ride. Coral is a coral polyp. Sleep is fat cat sleeping on a stack of pillows. Chef is a lobster chef wearing a chef's cap and holding a spoon. R.I.P is a smashed alarm clock, defending rest. Dig is a mole slurping up a worm. Buddy is a fable reference of The Scorpion and The Frog tale.

Inktober 2020 – Week 4

October 26, 2020 Lisa 3

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I can’t believe Week 4 is over! Subject-wise I was all over the place, but I still went with a lot of animals like scorpion and lobster which are both part of the Phylum Read More

Cute little flower-shelled snail paired with a bright orange to nude crelly polish packed with colorful glitter.

Sweety Snail

September 24, 2020 Lisa 2

I must not be much of a gardener because I can’t stop loving snails. They’re both so pretty in the real world and so very cute in illustrated form. When I was searching through my five million stamping plates for the right image to pair with Femme Fatale’s gorgeous thermal Read More

Seemingly green St Patrick's Day nail art with clover which has a pink thermal polish secret.

St. Patrick’s Glitter

March 17, 2020 Lisa 4

Okay, let’s face it. If St. Patrick were around he likely would be horrified at the thought of glitter because anyone who works with glitter knows its of the devil. (I love it anyway.) (In controlled situations.) But it made a fun title and anyone who is trying to be Read More
