Sagittarius nail art featuring the archer centaur and Sagittarius symbol on a burgundy magnetically pink polish with flakies and holo glitter.

Zodiac Collection: Sagittarius

December 7, 2022 Lisa 0

Today I have another late mani, this time for Sagittarius (though technically we haven’t moved to another zodiac sign yet…). I’m really loving how today’s look ended up. This kind of finish with a magnetic polish really works for me. I was a little stuck about what to stamp outside Read More

It’s incomprehensible to me why anti-Semitism persists in existing, but it really feels like it’s shouting a lot louder right now. So even though I am not a Jew (or a Christian or anything but someone who can cherry pick any holiday they want), I thought it was time to Read More

Dinosaur metaphor nail art about the stresses and pressures of Christmas shopping as the dinos battle it out on red backgrounds.

Shop to Win

Black Friday has changed a lot over the years, but generally speaking I think it’s gotten less deadly but ultimately not more relaxed. The stress of it has just stretched out across the whole month. A kind of long wander through sales with a few extra good prices tucked in Read More

Pre-Christmas nail art in rich oranges and holographic with a peaceful home surrounded by trees and Santa preparing presents.

Yep, I’m still behind on posts. But! I’ve still got a schedule for new nail art for Christmas so I’m gonna intersperse the catch-up with the keep-up. Monochrome can be so hard but so fun. In 2020 I started a little collection of nail art in different monochrome color schemes Read More

A Halloween mani based on the Children of the Corn book (and movie) by Stephen King with a gradient from black to red to orange.

I am sooo behind on posting. To the point where I rolled a dice to decide which nail art I would post first on my way to catching back up. The happy thing is that I still made all my group deadlines so I was able to be in the Read More

Turkeys Wanted

Happy Thanksgiving! Today’s look has taken a while to reach you. I painted it clear back in 2020 after Thanksgiving. So I told myself I would share it next year and never even got around to editing to photos. To continue the tradition, I meant to post it a day Read More

I hope you were luckier than me and got to see the lunar eclipse if you wanted to. It was cloudy where I live, which is probably going to be the story of the rest of my life. I’ll take it for the rain. Still, it’s starting to get rather Read More

A super spicy mustard nail art for the Harvest Moon featuring stamping images of wheat grain and rockets flying past the moon.

Harvest Moon

It’s been a while since I painted something where I thought the difference between matte and glossy top coat would be interesting to see. You’ll see the photos swap back and forth between the two. This harvest nail art was painted for the Harvest Moon full moon clear back in Read More

Narwhale nail art with rainbow swirls on a peach background and a freehand painted narwhale painted on top "Tap that fish!".

Tap that Fish

November 3, 2022 Lisa 0

About five years ago, Adam Ravetch captured the first ever footage of a narwhal using its tusk to hunt fish. They literally tap the fish to stun them and then swim up the rest of the way to nom them down. I thought that was hilarious and, of course, it Read More

Cute owls dressed up in costumes--ghost/vampire/mummy/witch/skeleton--stamped onto a white/black thermal polish with Halloween glitter.

Halloween Owls

Once upon a time I told myself a story about how I was going to find time to release two blog posts on Halloween. And lo! The gamble of saving the most Halloween nail art to post last did not pan out. That’s fine because we are Halloween all year Read More
