Yesterday we were traveling over the sea and today we’re beneath the water’s surface with this brown ‘O’ is for Ocean mani for #AZNailArtChallenge. I wanted to pair China Glaze’s shimmery “Choo-choo Choose You” brown with duochromes and see what kind of magic would happen. I’m loving the results. I Read More

Today I have a design inspired by a poem: “The Owl and the Pussycat” by Edward Lear. For a brief period during and after high school I would read poetry and therefore be inspired to write my own. But it wasn’t something I cared about deeply so I drifted away Read More

I just finished watching Justice League and–having watched Batman vs Superman previously–it was a little weird that Batman became the comic relief when Flash was also the comic relief and Affleck’s Batman was super dark originally. I wish they’d be more consistent with their character development. I did enjoy the Read More

Paisley Whale

Today I bring you paisley and whales! Why? Well, #NailsWithIgFriends’ July host, Caroline (@gidwaney), picked Paisley and I just randomly added whales because it felt like a good idea at the time. This is the second time I’ve combined a large oceanic animal with a common fabric type/pattern in less Read More

I don’t know about you but I’ve been operating with a personal list of holidays I celebrate for a while and it’s now bleeding into my nail art. So I had to paint some shark nail art for Shark Week (July 22-29 in 2018). I was looking around without much Read More

I love playing with transparency and depth and this jelly polish by Ms. Sparkle with all its delightful glitters was a delight to work with. I was so sad when this design chipped off my nails before I could throw some gel top coat on top. Must remember to time Read More

It’s important to include key words in your title. *cough* Yep… So this was a wonderful blend of prompts: #AZNailArtChallenge’s Indie and both #SummerToxicVanity’s, #Beautometry’s and #GlamNailChallenge’s Mermaid (very common theme for this month). Now I only had to include an indie polish as my base, but I also wanted Read More

So, yeah. I’m behind. Between playing Don’t Starve (the old distraction, which I haven’t even touched once for over 24 hours /sob) and moving my blog and breaking it (the new distraction, shoot me), I missed a few prompts from #nailartchallenge. Namely Fish and Umbrella. I figure my previous prompt Read More

#NailsWithIgFriends is a group that has just one prompt a month and the person in charge of the prompt and the collage at the end changes each month. This was my first month participating and @nailcraftaddict was running the show and picked Arctic Wildlife. Now being me I kinda wanted Read More
