Talk Like a Pirate Day nail art with cute pirate stamping images (captain, ship, parrot) on a teal to purple multichrome polish.

Ship Ahoy!

September 19, 2022 Lisa 2

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Or at least the barest edge of the end of it depending on your time zone. I’ve been keeping busy with IRL things like finishing painting the deck with my husband. It rained a few days ago and the water beading up it made Read More

A magnetic monstrous purple-y pink and neon yellow-green kraken nail art with stamping decals of kraken patterns and tentacles in the ocean.

Beware the Kraken

There are too many human monsters running around trying to take other people’s rights. Please be sure to vote this year (and that includes the primaries where the main candidates get picked!). With that said, it’s time to celebrate one of my favorite oceanic monsters: the kraken. I love cephalopods. Read More

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 devilish junk food nail art with stamping decals of a devil donut and "eye" scream, which were also stamped onto the yellow background.

Devil Donuts and “Eye” Scream

I’m still trying to catch up on the few AZ Challenge prompts that I missed (especially since this is the last round). Today I’m covering ‘J’ is for Junk Food, but I also painted for ‘L’ is for Lucifer just in case I didn’t get to that one. However, I Read More

Yin yang nail art w/a koi fish yin yang stamping decal on stiletto shaped false nails covered in red, blue, and green flakies.

Yin Yang Koi

June 24, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

Back to school nail art with chalkboard stamping images about education topics (esp science) on a charcoal rainbow flakie background.

Lrn Gud (at School)

I typically don’t paint back to school nail art or anything of the sort because I’m out of school and I’m not even remotely in charge of my stepchildrens’ schooling. Plus by August my old office was so hot. It was really hard to get much nail art done. So Read More

Quartz crystal nail art in soft corals and whites with a reverse stamping images of quartz crystals with purple spring flowers.

I meant to get this written up sooner, but I made the mistake of wandering outside to weed for a bit. The new yard is much bigger than the old and the abundance of rain has kept certain plants growing all winter. In other words, I was clawing things out Read More

Cowgirl nail art on a green base with pink glitters, pink stamping decals of pink cowhide print, cowboy hat, and cowgirl with a "bang" flag.

Cowgirl Style

The past two days have sucked and I’m just glad they are over. I was able to finish this nail art in time to post on Instagram, but I couldn’t write the blog post until now. Even the nail art itself was rushed. I had to re-apply the glossy top Read More

Candy nail art with sweet wrapped treats on a purple and dark pink thermal polish stuffed with glitters.

Treat Yo Self

February 17, 2022 Lisa 1

The holiday has already passed, but the nail art world tends to continue with plenty of Valentine’s-related nail art until the end of February (when we can all switch to the spring designs we’ve been craving). I have failed to acquire any of the discount candy booty, but I have Read More

Valentine's nail art in white, red, and pink with water decals of cute white kittens and their love for balls of yarn.

A Yarn Love Story

February 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Happy Valentine’s Day! While I much prefer the sales on China’s Singles Day, the nail art for this holiday is much prettier. Today I decided to highlight other kinds of love by featuring kittens and string/yarn instead. Possibly it’s also because beyond adding hearts to things, I rarely highlight romantic Read More
