Cobra Strike in Rose and Blue

Because it’s me, I checked my spreadsheet of Halloween subjects halfway into the month and realized that I had been missing half of my Halloween nail art goals! So here I am blowing the snake goal out of the water with a totally Halloween looking fierce and deadly snake nail 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

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 2

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
