Nail art with stamping decals of beautiful Russian nesting dolls or matryoshka dolls in pinks, reds, and greens on a rusty red background with subtle jelly sandwich.

Russian Nesting Dolls

December 4, 2020 Lisa 1

It was really convenient of Ine to pick accompanying colors in the #pantone2020winterchallenge that worked perfectly for painting the ‘R’ is for Russian Dolls prompt for #aznailartchallenge. With the power of two challenges behind me, things came together pretty quickly. #pantone2020winterchallenge Honestly I felt seriously spoiled when I saw the Read More

The Fishery - Hermit Werds - matte black nail art with a golden koi fish and glossy stamping

The Fishery

November 24, 2020 Lisa 2

Today we’re journeying to the past and a fishy mani that I painted clear back in 2019. What a wonderful year (compared to this year). 😜 It kind of blows my mind that people can spend several thousand dollars to purchase one koi fish, but yes, they do. I think Read More

Purple and blue rose-themed nail art with layered stamping roses on a matte blue glitter background.

Winter Rose

November 15, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s funny, I have a lot to say today, but none of it feels like it belongs in the intro. This is a new rose-themed nail art that uses layered stamping, a technique I avoid because it’s extra labor intensive for me. No more! (kinda) Also, photos were taken of 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

Bright green and coral thermal polish manicure with cute jack-o-lantern pumpkins stamped on top.

The Changing Pumpkins

October 28, 2020 Lisa 3

Jack-o-lanterns are a pretty standard nail art theme, so let’s get basic! 🀣 I painted this one clear back in November last year. It was all part of my plan to try and paint extra Halloween manis all year so I could post lots during my favorite nail art-ing month Read More

True blue nail art decorated with a rising zombie cat and glow in the dark ghost cat.

Spooky Cats

October 7, 2020 Lisa 3

September’s Mani X Me box had a Pet Cemetery theme so, of course, I could not resist. And once I realized that I could actually put a hold on my subscription and skip the boxes where I wasn’t interested in everything (generally the stamping polishes are colors I already have Read More

Orange nail art modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch.

The Scream

October 2, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I’m kicking off my Halloween season with a modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch. Because it’s the season of screaming! (Except don’t. Because that creates more water droplets. 😱) I was really hoping to make the simple lines of the stamping image pop 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

Baby boomer french tip nails with a Wonder Woman water decal.

Wonder Woman

March 10, 2020 Lisa 2

I went even simpler with my simple nail art today with a single Wonder Woman water decal and one little row of stars to follow my french tip. Why? Because I’m still steeped in my delusion that I can also finish #liganailistachallenge’s March prompt list. Only two to go, right? Read More
