Love in Chains

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I hope you’ve found some way to make it special for you regardless of your romantic status. Honestly, I consider this a chocolate holiday more than anything else. And if you have to buy your own chocolate, remember that doing so means you are getting exactly Read More

Year of the Dragon

If you’ve seen my other Chinese New Year nail art designs, you’ll know that I like to bring out my longer falsies for this particular holiday. (And for some reason I favor shorter falsies for the end of December one…huh…) This year I kept my classically colored red/black/gold set very Read More

A brightly tacky holiday nail art with a rainbow of holographic nail foils and black holiday patterns with trees and flowers stamped on top.

Tacky Holidays

There’s always at least one ugly sweater prompt floating around Instagram for December. It’s tradition and it’s fun if you’ve embraced the truth that ugly really means tacky. And I love tacky. The more I look at these nails, the more I love them. I’m always one for rainbows, but Read More

An art deco Christmas nail art w/a green magnetic holo background and nail stamped art deco lady, Christmas tree, and framing flourishes.

Art Deco Christmas

The great thing about not prioritizing getting all my finished Christmas nail art posted (many tasty things were made instead) is that now I’m ahead when it comes to next year. Woo! Today’s look is all sorts of Christmas, but I’ve decided to share it anyway since it’s part of Read More

A pink magnetic Christmas pun nail art with cute mistle-toads instead of just mistletoe and a couple kissing beneath the toad anyway.

Under the Mistle Toad

Today’s second look is a marriage between two Instagram prompts and my ongoing interest in using all the puns on Moyou London’s Noel Collection-10 stamping plate. Picking my pun was easy. One of the prompts was mistletoe which perfectly matched the Mistle Toad. The next prompt was ornament. The toad Read More

A sweet candy cane nail art for the Christmas season with peppermint candy canes and holly on a dark olive green holographic polish.

Candy Cane Splendor

I have been trying to finish this nail art for two years. I painted the base in December of 2021 and stamped the images. Then I painted a clear polish over them to turn them into decals and got distracted. Christmas was over. I’d only managed to fill in half Read More

A simple orange magnetic Halloween quilt nail art with cozy quilt patterns of everything from pumpkins to black cats to spiders in black.

Cozy and Creepy

I already had a tiny backlog of nail art to post and instead of posting those, I finished another collab mani that I wanted to post today. And it’s not for Thanksgiving because that’s barely a holiday to me outside of yummy food and seeing family. No, it’s Halloween. Because Read More

A Thanksgiving nail art with dancing (or fighting) turkeys against a deep orange base with magenta shimmer and copper vegetable stamping.

Turkey Dance

Alas, the gap in nail art happened as predicted, but at least you had some warning this time, my poor reader! Today’s look was obviously in celebration of the United State’s Thanksgiving. Honestly, it’s a bit of a problematic holiday to me considering the story we tell about it compared Read More

Spooky gnome nail art with spider webs and three gnomes dressed as a bat-loving witch, a ghost, and a cobweb covered spider lover.

Halloween Gnomes

October 22, 2023 Lisa 0

Gnomes have become the thing. I’d say their popularity has really grown the past two years and they’ve taken the place of the unicorn plates everyone had to make. Only for some reason gnomes fit in everywhere so you can get a regular plate with a few gnomes thrown in Read More

A jack-o-lantern and bats nail art with tiny bats delivering jack-o-lanterns on a dusty teal flakie-filled background for Halloween.

Pumpkin Delivery

October 21, 2023 Lisa 0

I didn’t have a bat prompt for this Halloween, so of course I had to find a way to sneak them in because I love bats. I had this design sketched up last year of little bats delivering pumpkins so when the jack-o-lantern prompt came up, I knew what I Read More
