Teal/blue-green nail polishes with soft watercolor-like water decals of yummy ice cream dishes (sundae and milkshake) on top.

Teal and Ice Cream

July 17, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look really shouldn’t have been so hard to get right and I’m not entirely happy with it, but it’s time to post it and move on. I had the nail challenge prompt ice cream and a few water decal sheets that fit. I figured it was time to use Read More

A smoky navy blue multichrome nail art with fake writing being highlighted (alphabet) stamping decals topped with a gold/iridescent topper.

Darkly Alphabetical

May 29, 2021 Lisa 0

I had a lot of different ideas of what I could with an alphabet prompt, but what ended up happening was the nail art I could get done as quickly as possible. So my result is very simple and mostly relies on a lovely flakie topper to make it look Read More

A neon yellow crelly and black texture polish manicure with negative space black dandelions stamped on top. Glows in the dark.

Dandelion Glow

April 30, 2021 Lisa 0

While I couldn’t complete all the prompts for @glamnailschallenge, I did want to knock out the last one: dandelions. See, Beauty BigBang has a great stamping plate with an entire row of full-nail negative space images and one of them is dandelions. I thought this would pair perfectly with the Read More

A medium blue polish with glitters and micro flakies with geometrically stylized cotton candy stamped on top.

Cotton Candy in Abstract

April 1, 2021 Lisa 1

For my last sweet-related design in March, I decided to go even more geometric than I did with the donuts. Since the prompt was for cotton candy and I already had the BP-A08 stamping plate out, I looked to it for some inspiration. It had some dots that faded out Read More

A soft tan and caramel wood texture nail art with bright water decal bugs on top.

Bugs in the Woods

March 26, 2021 Lisa 2

Last year when my husband and I went camping, the wildlife that we saw the most were the flies. It certainly helped to keep us eating our food quick so most of them would go away again. Anyway, when the xyloid (relating to, consisting of, or resembling wood) prompt came Read More

A cupcake nail art with a cupcake water decal accent nail and creamsicle-like water spotted nails in white, orange, and coral.

Creamy Cupcake + Water Spotting Tutorial

March 21, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s nail art was brought to you by cupcakes, the water spotted technique, and water decals. Today’s tutorial brought to you by my desire to figure out why I wasn’t getting larger spots. It’s funny how things come together. I could have done advanced/reverse stamping cupcakes as I have tons Read More

A pearly grey nail art with a soft swirl of green and stamping image of a dandelion puff on top. Done on false nails.

Dandelion Dreaming

February 25, 2021 Lisa 2

I can’t think of a better nail art design to follow a dark and magical mani than this simple almost watercolor-esque floral mani. 🤣🤣🤣 Probably having my floral as a dandelion puff is really the icing on that cake of subject change. But, I love variety so I’m just living Read More

A grey crelly with flakies that shift from red, orange, gold, yellow and green with floral negative space stamps in red and green.

Pantone Floral

January 31, 2021 Lisa 2

I have one last nail art to share before the month ends because I’m definitely not going to miss one of my pantone prompts. I kept it very simple according to my energy levels and stuck with three different stamps of the same image. And yet I still had to Read More

A magenta-purple mani with tons of blue and magenta flakies with a wee little smiling banana stamping decal.

Banana-rama

January 27, 2021 Lisa 2

There was a time when I was making myself a green smoothie every day and my home was full of the overripe bananas from the store because I could get them cheaper that way. And while bananas were thriftily in all of them, I was making the real deal green Read More

Orange nail art modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch.

The Scream

October 2, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I’m kicking off my Halloween season with a modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch. Because it’s the season of screaming! (Except don’t. Because that creates more water droplets. 😱) I was really hoping to make the simple lines of the stamping image pop Read More
