Autumnal Cactus

August 15, 2022 Lisa 0

You may have noticed that I’m using a lot of false nails lately. Well, this is the last mani I painted before I had to chop my nails short. Y’see, that time a few months ago when I shut my finger in the door has come back to haunt my Read More

Crazy Plant Lady

April 21, 2022 Lisa 0

It’s amazing this first year in the new house, watching the efforts of the gardeners before me continue to unfold. There are some plants I am super excited about, a lot of bushes that need to be trimmed back when they’re done blooming, and so much more planning and learning Read More

Bus Ride to Somewhere

March 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought about by more Instagram prompts: smoosh marble and bus. I knew I had a beautiful image of a bus on KADS’ Flower-16 so I decided to go with that. I followed it up with talk of travel because it really felt like a school trip kind Read More

On Frog Pond

March 16, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look is yet again something I’ve wanted to paint for a while. I had a few BC stamping plates with lily pad images that matched each other: one with a frog and one with a fish. I always thought they belonged in some kind of nail art together. I Read More

International Bird Day

January 5, 2021 Lisa 3

It’s International Bird Day today, so of course it’s time for some bird nail art! Now I don’t have a bird feeder because I don’t want additional bird poop around my house, but I do love little song birds. Particularly in art. They’re just cute little pops of nature and Read More

Now it’s not Valentine’s Day yet, but it is time for the letter ‘V’ in the #AZNailArtChallenge so Valentine’s Day is a natural pick for something that everyone can participate in. I was more than happy to use one of the first designs I painted when I was getting back Read More

We are the Corn People

November 27, 2019 Lisa 0

For the longest time, I just figured that people from Mexico were the ones who ate the most corn. Was it the tortillas and tamales? I don’t know. But it was an unspoken and completely incorrect impression. In fact, Americans are the biggest corn consumers in the world followed closely Read More

Watercolor Cactus

April 11, 2019 Lisa 2

I’ve painted my nails with white gel polish again and it’s time for some of my favorite kind of nail art: watercolor! I painted this one for #AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘C’ is for Cactus prompt, but I missed the collage deadline by minutes because I kept adding more details with the watercolor. Read More

Water My Cactus

September 25, 2018 Lisa 0

Confession time: I fell in love with a color combination. Aileen Bell (@azbelle_nails) painted an absolutely gorgeous floral design for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s pink/blue theme last month and I loved it so much I had to try it with my own stamps. But I live in a desert so I used cacti Read More

Concrete & Cacti

June 5, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s been a month since I posted a design on my cindy hand, but here it is with some cacti stamping decals on Masura’s lovely dark terracotta polish. I am deeply in love with this color, but the polish was so very thick and dried so fast that painting it Read More
