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

I really should be going to bed right now, so this post is going to be short and sweet except for the large amounts of photos because omg this magnetic polish is so very pretty. And luckily pretty easy to capture, unlike my Spirit of the Wolf mani. I need Read More

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

Three Sweet Manis

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

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

It’s time for ice cream nail art! So I finally dug out my Turtle Tootsie ice cream polishes and used them for an ice cream mani. I’m actually pretty pleased that I used them all for something else first because it shows I was right to pick them. Versatile, that’s Read More
