Yellow and orange nail art with the demon Luci (cat) from Netflix's Disenchanted freehand painted on top of flames.

Luci the “Cat”

January 19, 2021 Lisa 1

My husband and I have been watching Netflix’s animated tv show Disenchanted since it started. It was created by the same person that started The Simpsons and Futurama–both shows that I watched in their early seasons. So if your sense of humor loved either of them, you’ll also love Disenchanted. Read More

Bird nail art with red bird, robin, and bluebird water decals placed on a white and blue thermal polish with shimmering ferns stamped on top.

International Bird Day

January 5, 2021 Lisa 2

It’s International Bird Day today, so of course it’s time for some bird nail art! Now I don’t have a bird feeder because I don’t want additional bird poop around my house, but I do love little song birds. Particularly in art. They’re just cute little pops of nature and Read More

A super bling Christmas mani starting with a red/green thermal polish, bright green swirls, and dancing reindeer stamping decals.

Reindeer Holiday

December 25, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s Christmas! And I have one last reindeer/Christmas mani to share. It has been a month for reindeer nail art since this is the fourth time they’re showing up. Although if you count how many designs I’ve repainted it’s been all reindeer all the time for me. 😭 I decided Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who 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!

December 15, 2020 Lisa 4

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

A glow in the dark fire-y thermal red and black nail art with double stamped scorpion and flames and edgy black textured polish accent nails.

Fire-y Sting of the Scorpion (glow in the dark)

November 2, 2020 Lisa 2

While I was busy wrapping things up for Inktober I didn’t get around to finishing my last Halloween nail art and posting it. So here we are now, a tiny bit late for last week’s #pantone2020winterchallenge. Life is messy, but hopefully this glow in the dark mani with scorpions and Read More

Bright green and coral thermal polish manicure with cute jack-o-lantern pumpkins stamped on top.

The Changing Pumpkins

October 28, 2020 Lisa 3

Jack-o-lanterns are a pretty standard nail art theme, so let’s get basic! 🤣 I painted this one clear back in November last year. It was all part of my plan to try and paint extra Halloween manis all year so I could post lots during my favorite nail art-ing month Read More

Cute little flower-shelled snail paired with a bright orange to nude crelly polish packed with colorful glitter.

Sweety Snail

September 24, 2020 Lisa 2

I must not be much of a gardener because I can’t stop loving snails. They’re both so pretty in the real world and so very cute in illustrated form. When I was searching through my five million stamping plates for the right image to pair with Femme Fatale’s gorgeous thermal Read More

Seemingly green St Patrick's Day nail art with clover which has a pink thermal polish secret.

St. Patrick’s Glitter

March 17, 2020 Lisa 4

Okay, let’s face it. If St. Patrick were around he likely would be horrified at the thought of glitter because anyone who works with glitter knows its of the devil. (I love it anyway.) (In controlled situations.) But it made a fun title and anyone who is trying to be Read More

Pi Day nail art with a cream colored background π symbols and pie-related stamping decals.

Pi Day 2020

March 14, 2020 Lisa 2

I don’t paint new nail art for Pi Day every year, but I do always try to eat some sort of pie. Today I even had leftover pizza (pie) for lunch and then I did manage to snag a frozen key lime pie from the store since the thing that Read More
