I have just not wanted to do anything but read the past few days. But I have finally mustered enough of a sense of duty to finally post this: my lucky mani for Chinese New Year. Its focus is mostly on the crazy alien-like bunnies and is much less Chinese Read More

I swear I’ve done nothing but mess up everything I’ve painted the past few days, but we’ll post what we have to post and today’s look is a pretty blue nail art with cute winter bird stamping decals. I went the human way when I talk about winter birds because Read More

Did you know that in the Vietnamese people are celebrating the lunar new year for the Year of the Cat instead of the rabbit? There’s some debate on what caused the cultural change which you can read about in this NPR article. I’m just happy that I knew about it Read More

I’ve been painting nail art for Chinese New Year since 2018. It kinda terrifies me that I will have to paint for five more years before I can rest on my laurels and just repost the nail art I already did (optionally, mean 😜). In previous years I painted at Read More

Snowman nail art with cute snowmen playing around (like juggling) and preparing for a trip to Hawaii on a bold yellow glittery background.

Today’s look features snowmen on a yellow thermal background. So while I normally would have thought about adding banks of snow for them to exist in, I decided to just lean into the whole yellow thing with the post title. As happy as these snowmen look in their dubiously yellow Read More

I do love alliteration and so does the host of the collab I painted this nail art for. And yet I’m such a literal person that I had to have both jam and a musician jamming in my design since they were both fair interpretations of the prompt. *sigh* I Read More

We’re back for a new full moon and a new mani to celebrate it…the Wolf Moon! Did you know that this year there will be thirteen full moons instead of 2022’s twelve? There is an extra moon in August called the Blue Moon. This challenge will be done in April, Read More

Cool blue goose nail art featuring the Untitled Goose Game's naughty goose and honking on a backdrop of snowflakes. Threat level high.

I kinda feel like I’m setting the tone with my first mani of the year so even though I already have some nail art to post, I threw this mani together because it’s just me. I first played the Untitled Goose Game last year and it was so fun (except Read More
