A plum flakie filled polish with earth-loving stamping images on top and a surprise nuclear explosion blowing up the planet. Oops!

Oops! Earth

July 28, 2021 Lisa 1

I very much believe that we would all be in a better place if we considered ourselves caretakers of the planet instead of its rulers. So many of the things we do that end up causing us harm (like higher cancer rates in certain areas) wouldn’t be possible if we Read More

A stained glass butterfly nail art with an iridescent flakie topper and watercolor paint to fill in the butterfly decals.

Stained Glass Butterflies

Today is this blog’s fifth anniversary. So it’s kind of ironic that I have been very distracted from it and don’t feel much like posting currently. Some of it is that I bought some roller skates and not only busted off a nail already (luckily on my cindy hand) but Read More

Autumn-esque nail art of yellow, orange, and brown sunflower stamping decals on an olive green speckled nail polish base.

Sunflower Garden

I’d intended to paint more mermaid nail art this weekend, but relaxation got in the way. 🤣 Instead, the first thing I managed to paint this week is sunflowers. I feel like I’m already channeling fall with this sunflower nail art, but the time for sharing it is now. It Read More

Mexico-related nail stickers (hot peppers, sombreros, maracas, and a cactus) with the word "fiesta" decorating a bright mustard crelly with iridescent flakes to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

May 5, 2021 Lisa 0

While the original holiday was celebrated over a military victory in Mexico, it has come to be associated with celebrating Mexican-American culture in the states for over a hundred years. I doubt there will be many parties or festivals due to the pandemic, so we’ll probably all just focus on Read More

A neon yellow crelly and black texture polish manicure with negative space black dandelions stamped on top. Glows in the dark.

Dandelion Glow

While I couldn’t complete all the prompts for @glamnailschallenge, I did want to knock out the last one: dandelions. See, Beauty BigBang has a great stamping plate with an entire row of full-nail negative space images and one of them is dandelions. I thought this would pair perfectly with the Read More

Zombie nail art with cartoon zombie head stamping decals and on a mustard/orange/brown tri-thermal base with orange and gold glitters.

Zombie Days

April 28, 2021 Lisa 0

What is it like to be a zombie? I really like to get in their (fictional) heads and find out. Like…are they in a kind of fugue state until something triggers them into eat mode? Is there an end game? Most zombie-related entertainment seems to focus on the pure monster Read More

A super mustard-y nail art with a stamped plaid background pattern and cute grey cat water decals sleeping, playing, and talking to you.

Modes of Cat

It has been a week-ish. Mostly because life got busy. I’m very sad to miss a few of the monthly prompts for @glamnailschallenge and just kept crossing off challenges that I wanted to paint for one after another all last week. So thwarted. Well, that’s life. Today I have a Read More

A pastel Easter crelly skittle nail design with a magical bunny, cute bunny butts, and a bunny in a jar for next year.

Easter Preserves

April 13, 2021 Lisa 2

I am having a very slow brain day. Hence why this pastel crelly nail art full of cute bunnies is posting a day later than I’d intended. It has been four years since I painted a rainbow Easter mani with crellies. I have a lot more of them now so Read More

A pearly grey nail art with a soft swirl of green and stamping image of a dandelion puff on top. Done on false nails.

Dandelion Dreaming

February 25, 2021 Lisa 2

I can’t think of a better nail art design to follow a dark and magical mani than this simple almost watercolor-esque floral mani. 🤣🤣🤣 Probably having my floral as a dandelion puff is really the icing on that cake of subject change. But, I love variety so I’m just living Read More
