Neon-ish Spring

Today’s look started with disappointment. I swatched a new polish I had purchased and it did not look at all like the photos. I checked the brand’s page and it looked like the pigment wasn’t stable enough and all of it changed between the time the swatchers took their photos Read More

The world has moved on from Valentine’s Day, but I have not (yet). Today’s look is very simple lace half moon, but it comes with a super cool thermal polish from purple (cold) to hot pink (warm) on my super long stiletto falsies. (If you don’t have a thermal polish, Read More

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I hope you’ve found some way to make it special for you regardless of your romantic status. Honestly, I consider this a chocolate holiday more than anything else. And if you have to buy your own chocolate, remember that doing so means you are getting exactly Read More

I have not felt like painting nail art this past while. So I finally decided to dig back into my files and find something I haven’t posted yet. This spring nail art is simplicity itself because I painted it right when I was trying to keep going with my hobby Read More

A shimmery orchid and ogup sewing nail art with nail stamping about the forbidden fabric scissors and cutting patterns from fabric.

Not the Fabric Scissors

January 7, 2024 Lisa 0

It is the age old battle between protecting your good sewing scissors from the depredations of the non-sewing heathens who will dull them gouging open cardboard boxes and the excuse of I can’t find any scissors. I am fortunate in that my spouse understands that you treat nice things nicely Read More

A pink boozy ho ho hammered nail art with wacky-acting Santas who may have had a little too much eggnog while getting ready for Christmas.

Two years ago I purchased a set of pink jelly gel polish from Born Pretty thinking that I loved jelly polishes and pinks are so pretty so for sure I’d use them. This is…the first time. Yeah, it’s been a rough two years for spending time on this hobby so Read More

Poinsettia jelly

Today’s look is brought to you by poinsettias, a flower that I have painted fairly consistently over the years. (Not nearly as many as roses though.) This is probably the simplest version I’ve ever done since it’s just the base and a negative space pattern of poinsettias on top. I’d Read More

Every month. Every single one. I have had a dinosaur nail art design I wanted to paint and didn’t get around to. Sometimes it was a carryover from the month before that I thought would still work, but the desire was there. Guess how many I’ve managed to paint and Read More

A Christmas-y plaid nail art using a magnetic thermal polish that runs from red (cold) to green (cold) and a green/copper plaid on top.

Magnetic Plaid

December 4, 2023 Lisa 0

It’s a very plaid time of year and I’m back with another plaid look. Now I’d finally caved and purchased one of UberChic’s fantastic plaid layering plates (03 if you must know), BUT it wasn’t going to arrive in time for the plaid collab on Instagram so I used my Read More

I already had a tiny backlog of nail art to post and instead of posting those, I finished another collab mani that I wanted to post today. And it’s not for Thanksgiving because that’s barely a holiday to me outside of yummy food and seeing family. No, it’s Halloween. Because Read More
