Creepy Carnival

October 23, 2018 Lisa 0

I bought Moyou London’s Gothic Collection 01 stamping plate because I loved the little carousel critters so much. It felt very fitting to use them in a design for @clairestelle8challenge’s Creepy Carnival prompt. I love carousels, especially the creepy looking ones. And they can be found at carnivals sometimes!

I’d originally meant to review this glow in the dark powder with the bat manicure that you will be seeing tomorrow, but #liganailistachallenge had a dragon prompt and I had this lovely image of Malifecent as a dragon on Maniology’s Happily Never After BM-XL193 stamping plate.

[press sample] Today I’m bringing you my silliest Halloween mani yet in this review of BeautyBigBang XL-026. It has so many skeletons ranging from cute to seriously detailed.

Birds of Fall

October 3, 2018 Lisa 0

I fell in love with nail art with tiny birds last winter and haven’t had nearly enough opportunities to explore the subject. So I inevitably chose birds for my fall look for #NailsWithIgFriends hosted by the lovely Neha (@nehabothra). These are more stylized so they’re not quite as dear to Read More

Happy International Coffee Day! Or…belated America’s National Coffee Day… (Seriously, America, pick up your skirts and shuffle over a few days so we can all be together.) I thought I’d celebrate by making sure the end of my “year” of coffee nail art fell on this day so there’s been Read More
