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

Blue metallic nail art with tribal stamping decals in a light blue.

Tribe of the Bluestone

February 10, 2020 Lisa 2

I do love it when the title of the piece comes from something simple like the prompt that I used to inspire it. In this case, I combined #Pantone2019WinterChallenge’s Bluestone shade with my last unused Nee Jolie stamping plate: NJX-002, a tribal stamping plate. I’m actually still debating just destashing Read More

Chocolate-y heart nail art for Valentine's Day in non-traditional colors.

Love is a Rocky Road

February 4, 2020 Lisa 3

Am I talking about chocolate ice cream with nuts and marshmallows or is this all about how love is a journey which can often be difficult? Nah, it’s all about this chocolate-y Pantone color called Rocky Road for #pantone2019winterchallenge. I decided to go real simple with this nail art and Read More

Soft peachy pink nail art with poppy reverse stamped accent nails.

Peachy Pink Poppies

February 2, 2020 Lisa 1

I’m back tonight with a soft floral look featuring Pantone’s Peachy Pink shade. I was really excited to make a look for such a pretty color and spent way too much time going back and forth through my stamping plate collection. But I finally settled on poppies because alliteration is Read More

Hazel-colored nail art about walk your dog month with cute dog stamping images and paw prints.

Walk Your Dog Month

January 27, 2020 Lisa 0

Did you know that January is Walk Your Dog Month? I did not, but I am also not a dog owner. Instead, I was searching for a reason to use the dog image on Nicole Diary’s Fashion Trends ND-002 stamping plate because my goal is to use every single image Read More

Year of the Pig nail art with pig stamping in all of the pig's lucky colors: brown, grey, and yellow.

Lucky Pig

January 17, 2020 Lisa 0

The traditional colors for Chinese New Year are red and gold and I already painted that for the Year of the Pig. But each year also has lucky colors associated with it (for Pigs it’s yellow, grey, and brown) and I decided I wanted to paint designs for that too. Read More

A deep red (merlot) nail art with a few brightly colored mandala decals.

Merlot Mandala

January 12, 2020 Lisa 0

This particular design also ended up on Instagram before the blog to make the deadline before #pantone2019winterchallenge switched to the new week. Technically, I think I posted around 3 AM so I was still too late. Luckily, Ine is forgiving (or is polite and can’t stop me anyway 🤣). I’m Read More

Three monochrome Christmas manis in purple, blue, and yellow.

Rainbow Christmas part 1

January 10, 2020 Lisa 0

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More

Orange nail art with a fierce tiger stamping decal inspired by Pantone's Orange Tiger color.

Orange Tiger

January 9, 2020 Lisa 0

It’s terribly convenient when the name of a color can be used both as the title of the nail art inspired by it and the subject. Today I have my Orange Tiger mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge run by the lovely Ine (@inegeek) and it’s not getting posted on the last possible Read More
