Solar Tropics

Today’s look has been living in my head for a while. I snagged several bottles of Just Add Sun polishes (which I’m quickly reviewing) when they were on sale in my local grocery store and have been slooowly using them all. I thought they would look really neat in a Read More

A space cat nail art with a cat drinking planet milk + UFO abducting a cat on a pink to white thermal with pink/purple/blue glitter.

Cats Conquer Space 3.0

July 6, 2022 Lisa 1

I seem to have a thing for cats in space and I have been led there happily by stamping plate designers. Along with the stamping plates from the June ManixMe box, we already had Born Pretty’s Outer Space XL 1 & 2, Creative Shop 191, Moyou London’s Crazy Cat Lady Read More

A brocade-like Thailand nail art featuring Buddah meditating over a lotus blossom + a Thai flame fabric pattern over a flakie purple polish.

Thailand Meditations

My husband spent two years in Thailand when he was much younger and still speaks a little Thai. So needless to say we both would love to visit Thailand. Mind you I am not fond of the high humidity high heat combination so we’re definitely not staying, but I want Read More

Dramatic purple rose nail art with a magnetic purple polish peeking out from negative space rose patterns and token butterflies.

Magnetic Purple Roses

February 2, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought to you by the color purple, the subject roses, and the strange feeling that we kiiiinda posted something similar not so long ago. However, the use (finally) of a purple magnetic polish I’ve had for years hopefully brings enough of a different element to this so Read More

A purple baby boomer french tip nail art with a solar holographic glitter polish and starfish stamping decals on top.

Solar Starfish

Today’s look feels very simple to me and yet it’s not. It has a negative space stamp and a reverse stamping decal of starfish, but then it also has baby boomer French tips with a glittery solar polish on top. And on my thumb I have another reverse stamping decal Read More

Dandelion Glow

While I couldn’t complete all the prompts for @glamnailschallenge, I did want to knock out the last one: dandelions. See, Beauty BigBang has a great stamping plate with an entire row of full-nail negative space images and one of them is dandelions. I thought this would pair perfectly with the Read More

A grey crelly with flakies that shift from red, orange, gold, yellow and green with floral negative space stamps in red and green.

Pantone Floral

January 31, 2021 Lisa 2

I have one last nail art to share before the month ends because I’m definitely not going to miss one of my pantone prompts. I kept it very simple according to my energy levels and stuck with three different stamps of the same image. And yet I still had to Read More

A white and purple ghostly nail art with negative space stamping, boo-ing ghosts and glow in the dark action!

Ghosts Boo You (It glows!)

October 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Negative space ghost images are fairly common on Halloween-themed stamping plates, but I hadn’t gotten around to using any of them until now. I bracketed my inner-nail ghosts with the negative space stamping. But this mani really became extra special because of the indie polish I used as the base. Read More

Seasonally Inappropriate Flowers

January 5, 2020 Lisa 1

I am back with another design for #Pantone2019WinterChallenge. If you only read my blog and don’t follow me on Instagram, you’ve missed the last two. But I promise I will write a post about them soon and even throw in a third design. All of them are for Christmas though. Read More
