I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More

Happy Chinese New Year, friends! Today’s nail art has taken the place of Rooster Revisted as my favorite Chinese zodiac nail art design. I hope you like it as much as I do. 😘 It started with this deep red holographic/flakie indie polish from Vapid Lacquer that, I’m sorry to Read More

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

A simple nail art today with a super bright shade of red. I am enjoying the #pantone2019winterchallenge since its polish swatch focus forces me to stop piling more details in on a single nail art. Today’s shade is Cranberry, although Ine (@inegeek) has already posted the prompt for next week: Read More

Well, I’m going to be getting out of order, but I haven’t forgotten the nail art prompts that I missed! I really wanted to paint some Robin Moses nail art this month, but I wasn’t interested in snowmen (which is what the prompts were for on Instagram) so I asked Read More

I fell in love with nail art with tiny birds last winter and haven’t had nearly enough opportunities to explore the subject. So I inevitably chose birds for my fall look for #NailsWithIgFriends hosted by the lovely Neha (@nehabothra). These are more stylized so they’re not quite as dear to Read More

Kitties really do make the best presents. Unless we’re talking waking up Christmas morning to find out that your cat vomited on the carpet. Hard pass on vomit presents. I decided for the red/black prompt from #firedazedchallenge that I wanted to cover presents so I used some cute kitty images Read More

Part of me wanted to go super elaborate for this one, but I made myself take a step back and simplify because I did not have the time. So I went with lots of pink with silver snowflakes and red stamping for my decals. Given the theme, I picked images Read More
