I didn’t put it on my list, but I kinda wanted to paint something Halloween-ish with a neon yellow background so I combined it with #AZNailArtChallenge’s delightful ‘S’ is for Spider prompt. I used it as a clearing house to finish up a bunch of little goals and the result Read More

I can’t remember what year it was, but suddenly there were fancy white, pink, and gold pumpkins in the craft stores. People had gotten tired of the typical Halloween colors and that subset bought up this cool, glamorous Halloween look. Also, I’m pretty sure there was a lot of glitter Read More

Today I am bringing you some super purple grape nail art for #glamnailschallengesept. At the start of this month I finally went through my helmers and recorded all of the polishes I haven’t used yet on the blog. I had 52 Sinful Colors/Shine polishes listed alone, 150 total unlisted polishes. Read More

I tried a new Instagram challenge this time: @ColoursWithinWomen. When this group goes with a color theme, they want to see three nails of only that color and an accent nail. (No rules for thumbs though. Woo!) I have a lot of neglected brown polishes that for some reason I’m Read More

This was a fun combination of #ClaireStelle8Challenge’s Chevron, #NailChallengeCollaborative’s Geometric, and #WhenColoursCollide’s coral/mint/white prompts. I even got to knock out several items in my collection that I hadn’t used yet. That’s always a bonus. I kinda wish I had more to say, but this all ended up coming together very Read More

Just a quick, simple nail art today. Sometimes I complicate things too much and end up staring off into the distance because it’s too much work and I don’t wanna get started. Plus the first version of my other nail art didn’t turn out the way I wanted so I Read More

#WhenColoursCollide was much more vigilant this time about people strictly sticking to the color prompt and to that I say, ‘Good for them!’ It felt like people were playing fast and loose with the prompts more and more, and it was time to rein it in. And, of course, it Read More

It’s recreate month at #NailChallengeCollaborative and today I’m revisiting a nail art I painted last year in April and was never quite happy with. It was supposed to be a design that one could wear to work without getting into trouble so I tried to make it something that wouldn’t Read More

March’s host for #NailsWithIgFriends was Sharon (@sharnailstar). She is an actual nail technician and I admire her work greatly. She is living proof that you don’t have to obsessively make decals to create gorgeous and complex designs with nail stamping. The theme was Circles and Lines. I really wanted to Read More
