A sunset beach-themed nail art with nail stamps of palm trees, seagulls, and skeletons. The best of tropical nightmares.

Bones at the Beach

August 3, 2021 Lisa 1

I certainly meant to post this last week, but my brain has entered a fugue state which I mostly blame on the pandemic. One family member, who was vaccinated, got Covid and is still in pretty bad shape, though not so bad that they are in the hospital. I’ve started Read More

Shimmery blue and green ocean nail art with a stamping decal of a little white dog catching a wave/surfing.

Surfer Pooch

July 9, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s nail art features a cute little white dog taking on some “ruff” waves on his surf board. I apologize for the pun, but I’m pretty sure it had to be done. This pawsome look was brought to you by the letter ‘D’ is for Dog because it’s time for Read More

Nautical nail art in pink, black, and silver with lots of anchor stamping decals and a kiss of holographic nail polish.

Anchors Away

July 5, 2021 Lisa 2

Todays look is brought to you by prompts and whatever I have in my collection that fit them. 😆 My colors were pink, black, and silver from @WhenColoursCollide and my subject was Anchors from @GlamNailsChallenge. So that made this a nautical nail art from the start. When Colours Collide There Read More

Teal glow in the dark nail art with a mermaid unicorn (mermicorn) stamping decal and a narwhale.

Mermicorn

June 11, 2021 Lisa 2

I’ve had this nail art painted for nearly a week, but I just haven’t felt like writing lately. Still, it’s more than time to share this nail art that helped me transition from a month of mermaids to a month of unicorns (Junicorn). I bring you a mermicorn. Okay, I Read More

A pink glow in the dark crelly with Disney villain Ursula nail art complete with tentacles, shell necklace, and her attack on Eric's ship.

Disney Villain: Ursula

June 3, 2021 Lisa 2

So the @HalloweenForeverCollab picked Disney (or other animated shows) villains in neons or glow in the dark and, well, how does one pick a single villain out of so many wonderful prospects? Easy. You just go straight for Ursula and can’t convince yourself to paint anything else. (Admittedly I already Read More

An ultra multichrome base polish from turquoise to purple to orange with ocean floor and swimming mermaids stamped on in black.

Multichrome Mermaids

May 24, 2021 Lisa 0

I like my rainbows so you know I love multichrome polishes, but not all of them are created equal. Some are more rainbow-y than others and the less subtle they are the more I like them. I painted my cindy hand with Quixotic Polish’s “Flying Past the Stars” during the Read More

A turquoise to white thermal nail polish with stamping decals of a mermaid and crab enjoying watermelon and a full-nail watermelon pattern on the thumb.

Oceanic Watermelon Picnic

May 8, 2021 Lisa 0

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

A watercolor nail art with a sea turtle with mandala-esque patterns and lots of kelp colored in with actual watercolor paint.

Sea Turtle in Watercolor

January 29, 2021 Lisa 2

I’ve been in a bit of a funk for the past few days, but I’ve finally gotten myself together enough to write this (brief) post. And, hey, it’s also been a while since I painted something with watercolor. And it’s been even longer–almost two years–since I painted my nails with Read More

A dusty dark blue mani with transparent jellyfish stamping decals swimming in the sea with little bubbles and flashes of holo.

Sea of Jellyfish

January 15, 2021 Lisa 2

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

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
