A space cat nail art with a cat drinking planet milk + UFO abducting a cat on a pink to white thermal with pink/purple/blue glitter.

Cats Conquer Space 3.0

July 6, 2022 Lisa 1

I seem to have a thing for cats in space and I have been led there happily by stamping plate designers. Along with the stamping plates from the June ManixMe box, we already had Born Pretty’s Outer Space XL 1 & 2, Creative Shop 191, Moyou London’s Crazy Cat Lady Read More

A holiday mashup nail design for Halloween and Easter with a pink/yellow thermal polish and zombie/monster rabbit stamping decals.

Easter-ween

I’ve really been enjoying the Instagram prompts from @inkednailzartchallenge. They’re just that little bit edgy and alt-culture for me. I hit a few prompts in March and I’m going to get them all this month if I can. They started off April with a bang by coming up with an Read More

Candy nail art with sweet wrapped treats on a purple and dark pink thermal polish stuffed with glitters.

Treat Yo Self

The holiday has already passed, but the nail art world tends to continue with plenty of Valentine’s-related nail art until the end of February (when we can all switch to the spring designs we’ve been craving). I have failed to acquire any of the discount candy booty, but I have Read More

A Valentine's Day nail art with rosegold lace stamping on a pink thermal jelly with reverse stamping decals saying "Call me! XOXO".

Call Me! XOXO

February 6, 2022 Lisa 0

And we’re back to the holidays with Valentine’s Day coming up. This one was a simple lace + something fun mani. I paired a “Call me! XOXO” stamping decal with more “XOXO”s and a mobile phone. Really in many ways my favorite part was the lace stamping image paired with Read More

A yellow to bright green thermal polish with sweetly flattering orange and lemon stamping decals on top and more happy food on the thumb.

Citrus Kindness

June 25, 2021 Lisa 2

Okay, the title to this mani isn’t all that creative, but the main stamping images came from the Kindness is Magic stamping plate from The Stamping Shop Collab, so I just went with it. And since my theme was already going to be citrus, I decided to go with citrus-y Read More

An orange, flakie-filled nail art of a cloud city of superhero castles + flying superhero bunny and a skyscraper city of villains beneath.

Super Bunny City

May 28, 2021 Lisa 0

I’ve had a semi-idea for this nail art on my to-do list for a while ever since I realized I had one stamping plate with a bunny that looks like a flying superhero and another with a bunny-ish monster that looks like a supervillain. My chance to use these two Read More

A turquoise to white thermal nail polish with stamping decals of a mermaid and crab enjoying watermelon and a full-nail watermelon pattern on the thumb.

Oceanic Watermelon Picnic

May 8, 2021 Lisa 0

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

Zombie nail art with cartoon zombie head stamping decals and on a mustard/orange/brown tri-thermal base with orange and gold glitters.

Zombie Days

April 28, 2021 Lisa 0

What is it like to be a zombie? I really like to get in their (fictional) heads and find out. Like…are they in a kind of fugue state until something triggers them into eat mode? Is there an end game? Most zombie-related entertainment seems to focus on the pure monster Read More

A vanishing mani using a brown thermal polish. A small herd of deer stamping images slowly appear as the nail art warms up.

Vanishing Deer

March 7, 2021 Lisa 2

I’ve seen vanishing nail art twice now so I’m sure many other nail artists have been playing with thermal polishes in this way. The idea is to purposefully create a design that completely disappears in one state and then take a video of it appearing. I’ve played before with how Read More

A Valentine's Day candy nail art with nail foil-filled candy stamping decals all on a dusty blue to magenta thermal polish with red to copper flakies.

Foil Candies

February 3, 2021 Lisa 2

A while ago I had a brief delusion that I would use gilding nail foils more. They are fun and shiny! So I bought four more colors of them, none of which are used in this candy nail art design, and none of which have been used for over a Read More
