Beach Kitties

May 11, 2022 Lisa 0

It kinda feels like I’m heading into summer nail art a little early since today’s cat nail art is set on the beach and the new MxM box is Pool Party themed. It’s fine. Can’t let my cats fall too far behind the birds, right? I painted this nail art Read More

A salmon pink and green gardening nail art for people with plants on the brain. Actual brain and flower reverse stamping decals.

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

A silver magnetic bad luck nail art with reverse stamping decals of broken mirrors, mirror shards, and butterflies.

Bad Luck

March 23, 2022 Lisa 0

No Patty Day manis for me this year, but today I have a bad luck nail art that really ended up being bad luck for me! Or perhaps I should say I had bad luck with it because I slammed the door on my nail art-ing hand’s middle finger. So, Read More

Valentine's nail art in white, red, and pink with water decals of cute white kittens and their love for balls of yarn.

A Yarn Love Story

February 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Happy Valentine’s Day! While I much prefer the sales on China’s Singles Day, the nail art for this holiday is much prettier. Today I decided to highlight other kinds of love by featuring kittens and string/yarn instead. Possibly it’s also because beyond adding hearts to things, I rarely highlight romantic Read More

A Valentine's Day nail art with rosegold lace stamping on a pink thermal jelly with reverse stamping decals saying "Call me! XOXO".

Call Me! XOXO

February 6, 2022 Lisa 0

And we’re back to the holidays with Valentine’s Day coming up. This one was a simple lace + something fun mani. I paired a “Call me! XOXO” stamping decal with more “XOXO”s and a mobile phone. Really in many ways my favorite part was the lace stamping image paired with Read More

Dramatic purple rose nail art with a magnetic purple polish peeking out from negative space rose patterns and token butterflies.

Magnetic Purple Roses

February 2, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought to you by the color purple, the subject roses, and the strange feeling that we kiiiinda posted something similar not so long ago. However, the use (finally) of a purple magnetic polish I’ve had for years hopefully brings enough of a different element to this so Read More

A lovely red, pink, and gold multichrome magnetic nail polish paired with tiger paper cut stamping images for a Year of the Tiger zodiac mani.

Year of the Tiger

February 2, 2022 Lisa 0

I sadly ran out of steam when it came to posting a Year of the Tiger zodiac nail art on the exact day of Chinese New Year. On the other hand, the celebration typically lasts 15 days so I think I’m still within relevance. Nail art products used Base Polish: Read More

A witchy Valentine's Day nail art w/stamping decals of a cute witch brewing up a love potion with lots of hearts on a lilac flakie polish.

Hocus Pocus

January 25, 2022 Lisa 0

Once upon a time I painted a love potion-esque nail art. It was pre-blog and there was pink. I can even wave the stamping plate I used uselessly in the air. You can’t see it because this isn’t a video, but all the parts are there. Anyway, I sadly cannot Read More

A rainbow skittle pond nail art with hibiscus stamping decals sandwiched in layers of red, purple, blue, yellow, and orange jelly polish.

Sloppy Hibiscus Pond – Born Pretty jelly review

January 17, 2022 Lisa 2

This isn’t an official review. Born Pretty did not send me these polishes for review. But I bought four of them during the Singles Day sale and I thought I’d use them together in a quick (and sloppy) mani to see how they worked. So this is very rainbow and Read More

A sunset beach-themed nail art with nail stamps of palm trees, seagulls, and skeletons. The best of tropical nightmares.

Bones at the Beach

August 3, 2021 Lisa 3

I certainly meant to post this last week, but my brain has entered a fugue state which I mostly blame on the pandemic. One family member, who was vaccinated, got Covid and is still in pretty bad shape, though not so bad that they are in the hospital. I’ve started Read More
