Bones at the Beach

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

June was hard for some reason. I had to scale my nail art plans back to only the stuff I really, really wanted to paint and the @halloweenforevercollab was one of them. I really, really want to not miss this one all year. I’ve come close a few times, but 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 tan nail art with birch tree trunk stamping images highlighted with white nail polish and frolicking birds.

I was all set to paint dinosaur nail art for today’s look but I ended up deciding on a simpler subject matter for today. Don’t worry, though, dinosaur nails will happen soon. I keep buying stamping plates with them! But somehow today’s color–Pantone Sheepskin–felt like more of a tree nail Read More

A dusty dark blue mani with transparent jellyfish stamping decals swimming in the sea with little bubbles and flashes of holo.

Today I’ve combined two of the nail art challenges I paint for the most: #AZNailArtChallenge and #Pantone2020WinterChallenge. Their themes went together really well because I had ‘S’ is for Sea and Pantone’s Blue Depths, a dusty dark blue. Sounds like deep waters to meeee! And then there’s another challenge I’m Read More

A medium olive/chartreuse nail art with luck, playing cards, dice, and heart/club/spade/diamond stamping decals.

National Playing Card Day

December 28, 2020 Lisa 2

Did you know that today is National Card Playing day? I have known it for the past three years since I keep meaning to paint some card-themed nail art. I keep collecting these card playing stamping plates and I needed an excuse to use them. And I just kept missing Read More

A champagne to rose to purple thermal polish combined with stamping decals of mugs, tea pots, and Alice falling endlessly.

Happy International Tea Day!

For all the coffee nail art I have painted over the years, I have to admit I’ve been drinking more tea than coffee lately. It started with a strong tea drinking culture at work and then I started trying to cut down on caffeine later in the day. Now I Read More

Cactus-themed nail art with a tawny brown and holographic dark red polish and gold geometric frames with potted cacti.

Cactus at Red Rock

November 29, 2020 Lisa 2

This nail art design started with a color scheme. I knew I had this lovely brown with Pantone’s Tawny Birch and I wanted to paint something cozy with it. I paired it with this deep red holographic polish and the whole thing felt rather western to me so I went Read More

Quilting themed nail art with decals of sewing machine, bobbins, cloth swatches, and patterns to make a beautiful pink and green quilt.

Quilting with Love

November 20, 2020 Lisa 2

When the prompt ‘Q’ is for Quilt came up for the @aznailartchallenge I immediately thought about my dragon quilt nail art where I literally painted and then stamped on square swatches of polish and applied them to some false nails. I really loved the concept and wanted to revisit it, Read More
