Elegant bamboo forest nail art with stamping images of a lady wearing a kimono and a house built deep in a bamboo forest.

Bamboo Forest Retreat

August 4, 2021 Lisa 1

I’m trying a new (to me) challenge this month because I liked its prompts the best: #Sammys2021Challenge run by @my_nail_envy. Its first prompt was Forest and I really wanted to use this image of a tiny lady in a kimono holding a giant lotus leaf and framed by some bamboo. Read More

A turquoise to white thermal nail polish with stamping decals of a mermaid and crab enjoying watermelon and a full-nail watermelon pattern on the thumb.

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

A mauve and gold magnetic nail art with tarot cards, the five of pentacles, all-seeing eye, and a fortune teller and her crystal ball.

Witch of Seers

April 3, 2021 Lisa 1

I own two different–and before this mani unused–tarot stamping plates. So when the prompt of Creepy Circus came up, I had a big list of things that I could have painted, but a fortuneteller that predicts terrible futures for their customers was the perfect topic. Plus it let me paint Read More

A green gold circuit board mani with "PUNK" French tips and a cyberpunk mohawked lady on the thumb.

Cyberpunk

Once again I get to crow that I’m finally getting to a design that I’d planned out ages ago. It is brought to you by four letter words that work really admirably across one hand. (In this case “punk”.) My excuse came from the #WhenColoursCollide challenge that had a green, Read More

Olive Spring

February 26, 2021 Lisa 2

I have been sitting on this nail art for over a year just waiting for the perfect time to post it. And as we’re just heading into spring nail art season (which can be quite different from what’s going on outside depending on where you live), now felt good. It Read More

A red to black gradient nail art with swirls of magic and a wicked, sexy witch casting a summoning stamped on top plus a haunted house.

Witch of Summoning

February 24, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look was brought to you by learning to stop before you ruin something. See, my initial plan was to have the vertical gradient and then stamp a whole landscape of haunted houses as a kind of French tip that then fades into the black. But then I thought I Read More

Two Year of the Ox nail art designs: one in classical red and gold (and black) and the other in the year's lucky colors: yellow, blue, and purple.

Year of the Ox (x2)

February 18, 2021 Lisa 2

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More

Coppery magnetic nail art with spirit animal wolf stamping images (or werewolf if that's how you see it).

Spirit of the Wolf

February 9, 2020 Lisa 3

Today’s theme brought to you by the @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘W’ is for Wolf prompt and my personal goal to use all my holiday stamping plates this year. Also, my heart has been stolen by a magnetic polish. And I suck at using them so that says a lot… Products used Base Read More

Glittery silver and gold nail art with people cheering and partying underneath a 2020 stamping image.

2020 Glitter-fest

January 4, 2020 Lisa 0

I painted this glitter-fest on the first day of 2020 and meant to at least post it on Friday, but my “little nap” turned into a six hours nap followed by maybe two hours of consciousness and then eight more hours of horizontal recuperation. I may have started the year Read More

Alien Abduction - Hermit Werds - dark grey nail art with a single nail alien abduction stamp complete with flying saucer

Alien Abduction

March 20, 2019 Lisa 0

Happy Alien Abduction Day! The secret title to this nail design is “Date Night”. Mwahahahaaa I just loved the alien abduction stamping image the minute I saw it. And it only took me two years to use it! Yay!? Products Used For a design with only one nail that isn’t Read More
