Blue and pink nail art of a gentleman cat dressing up in a bow tie to woo his lady in the city using stamping decals.

Gentleman Cat Woos His Lady

January 21, 2021 Lisa 2

So I bought a circle stamping plate years ago that had an image of this little cat wearing a bow tie. And I always thought he was a bit of a nerd dressing up to impress his (cat) lady friend. (He does. Bow ties are great.) This week I finally Read More

Sea of Jellyfish

Today I’ve combined two of the nail art challenges I paint for the most: #AZNailArtChallenge and #Pantone2020WinterChallenge. Their themes went together really well because I had ‘S’ is for Sea and Pantone’s Blue Depths, a dusty dark blue. Sounds like deep waters to meeee! And then there’s another challenge I’m Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who Read More

Nail art with Christmas imagery: Santa, Christmas tree, and Santa's sleigh taking off in a shower of stars on a light tan flakie-filled base.

Christmas Clichés in Neutrals

December 12, 2020 Lisa 3

Browns are not the first color one things of when Christmas colors come up, but you know I like a challenge, friends. So I combined this personal challenge with #pantone2020winterchallenge to bring you today’s look. #pantone2020winterchallenge Ine had some beautiful colors picked this week, but they weren’t brown! So today Read More

Golden Spider Army

October 22, 2020 Lisa 3

My love for spiders is hopefully not causing too many people distress, but be warned that this post chock full of eight-legged beauties. Although…if you’ve followed me for very long at all you’d know that I always find myself painting spider nail art every Halloween/October. 😏 Did I just use 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

Warm rosy-brown nail art with little chibi Japanese girls in kimonos.

Spring’s Frost

March 12, 2020 Lisa 2

I’m back with a new look for #pantone2020summerchallenge and today’s Pantone color is Rose Brown. It is very aptly named. I decided to stick some little chibi girls in kimonos on top because I have an abundance of far eastern-themed stamping plates that I haven’t used yet. So…yeah…expect to see Read More

Classic blue magnetic nail art with adorable fish-loving polar bear stamping decals.

Gone Ice Fishing

February 26, 2020 Lisa 2

As much as I enjoy being able to include the next prompt collage for the Pantone challenges, today’s design was ready to post so here we go. It’s been a while since I painted polar bear nail art and an even longer time since my Gone Fishing nail art design. Read More

Simple and bright pink nail art with heart and love letters stamping decals.

All My Love Letters

February 16, 2020 Lisa 2

(Really, I would have just called this “Love Letters”, but I already used that title.) Today I have a really simple love-filled nail design that probably would have been perfect to post on Valentine’s Day, but did I want to finish editing my photos and write everything up on Friday? Read More
