Yin yang nail art w/a koi fish yin yang stamping decal on stiletto shaped false nails covered in red, blue, and green flakies.

Yin Yang Koi

June 24, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

A sterling silver magnetic (zodiac) cancer nail art w/reverse stamping decals of crabs and a swirly ocean/shell background pattern.

Cancer

June 23, 2022 Lisa 0

It was really hard for me to not make this a red/blue nail art, because crabs = red and water sign = blue. But. But! Supposedly the colors for the cancer astrological sign are grey, white, and blue with a goal for the colors being soft. So I went with Read More

A cool blue pool party mani with stamping images of watermelon floats and ladies relaxing at a pool surrounded by giant palm fronds.

Keeping Cool at the Pool

I really thought I’d post more last month. I had all this nail art I wanted to do. And instead I’m posting one of the last two things I painted super late. Well, it’s summer and we’re not only getting the kids all to ourselves but we had a bunch Read More

A smoky blue lily pond mani with the reflection of the flower moon shining forth, spring cherry blossom stamping decals, and koi.

Flower Moon

Did you know there’s a different “moon” name for every full moon of the month? I kinda was aware that it was a thing (and I suspect every moon has multiple names since in June we can do mead, honey or strawberries), but I joined a moon collab where we Read More

A glow in the dark nail art of a Caribbean half octopus half shark monster, lusca, attacking against a black/red duochrome teal sea.

Lurking Lusca

March 17, 2022 Lisa 0

On this blog we always try to celebrate Shark Week with some nail art and I also loooove the octopus. So when I purchased a stamping plate that had a strange creature with both octopus tentacles and a shark’s head, I knew I had to use it. The lusca is Read More

Baby blue Pisces nail art with two large purple and silver fish stamping decals marked with the Pisces sign and wave french tip stampings.

Zodiac Collection: Pisces

February 19, 2022 Lisa 0

Late post today because I adult-ed and did some yardwork. I’m in the process of ripping out some of the invasive (but lovely) ivy growing in my yard. It’s super fun because I’m in terrible shape right now. 😆Today is the start of the Pisces astrological sign and so the Read More

Pool party nail art using mint polish and a soft beige glitter crelly with stamping decals of anthropomorphic animals swimming and dj-ing.

Pool Party

July 11, 2021 Lisa 1

The prompt was pool party, a very summer-y topic, and I had this cool stamping plate with little animals playing sports. It’s nice when you get to be utterly literal except I realize now looking at this nail art that it’s an introvert’s pool party. Everyone is all alone on Read More

A soft blue-green mani of pond life, mostly frogs and one fish stamping decal with lily pads and other pond greenery.

On Frog Pond

March 16, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look is yet again something I’ve wanted to paint for a while. I had a few BC stamping plates with lily pad images that matched each other: one with a frog and one with a fish. I always thought they belonged in some kind of nail art together. I Read More

A dusty dark blue mani with transparent jellyfish stamping decals swimming in the sea with little bubbles and flashes of holo.

Sea of Jellyfish

January 15, 2021 Lisa 2

Today I’ve combined two of the nail art challenges I paint for the most: #AZNailArtChallenge and #Pantone2020WinterChallenge. Their themes went together really well because I had ‘S’ is for Sea and Pantone’s Blue Depths, a dusty dark blue. Sounds like deep waters to meeee! And then there’s another challenge I’m Read More

Dreamy purple glow in the dark nail art with a child stargazing on the back of a whale.

Whale Dreams – BBB Review (gitd powder, stamping plate)

January 22, 2020 Lisa 0

[press sample] Well, I thought I’d be posting this on Monday, but we’re here at last: my last Beauty BigBang review. Today we’re looking at a different line of glow in the dark powders with D1635-3A, which has a lovely purple glow, and a stamping plate with cute little landscapes Read More
