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

Turkey Dance

November 29, 2023 Lisa 0

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

Sweater nail art with cute sweater patterns in red and green on a sweet glittery white crelly and a few sweater decals too. Almost Christmas.

Sweater Weather

I know I just said the posts might get scarce this month, but I already had this basically done except for writing the blog post itself. And I actually have two more posts after that before I have to put painting effort forth or I have nothing to blog about. 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 trick or treat nail art with cute candy corns dressed up as bats, devils, witches, mummies and more with Halloween candy on the side.

Trick or Treat

October 12, 2023 Lisa 0

Woof! I had a few days there where I just couldn’t get myself to paint and then I got cold-sick for the first time in many years. Blech! But I’m mostly better and back with a cute candy corn nail design because candy corns dressed up to go trick or Read More

Dragon nail art with a complex magnetic green/aqua base and nail stamping of scales, a dragon eye, and an eastern dragon with flower accents.

Dragon Scale

September 22, 2023 Lisa 0

The dragons are here and they are magnetic! Esmaltes da Kelly/Phoenix makes such amazingly complex magnetic nail polishes. It’s terrible for my wallet, but great for my nails. With a prompt like Animal Print + magnetic, it was a simple decision to pick scales and a gorgeous green/aqua magnetic. And Read More

Pirate nail art with tons of pirate details (parrots, treasure chest, gold island, maps, pirate hat, pirate ship, lighthouse, kraken, etc).

Treasure Cove

September 19, 2023 Lisa 0

Ahoy, friends! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day and I’m celebrating with this booty-filled mani, which apparently meant working on it last minute because my brain wanted to finish three other manis before getting around to this one. Oh, well. It’s my hobby so I can be ahead and behind Read More

Pumpkin nail art with black and white pumpkins spelling "harvest" against a bright fuchsia nail polish w/orange glitter and a Halloween cat.

Harvest Pumpkin

September 16, 2023 Lisa 0

Did you think I was done playing around with bright backgrounds and black and white subjects just because I painted Scarecrow vs Crow? You would be wrong, although possibly today’s look has satiated me for a while. We’re starting with a bright fuchsia/magenta nail polish with orange glitter and adding Read More

Scarecrow nail art with a bright blue & green background of flapping crows with cute black and white scarecrows stamped on top.

Scarecrow vs Crow

September 10, 2023 Lisa 1

The leaves are already turning in my trees so fall is here for me at least and the nail prompts on Instagram are definitely fall-flavored. Scarecrows can be out when a crop first starts, but it’s when we’re ready to harvest that they become relevant: scaring the birds away from Read More

A spicy kitten nail art with devilish kitten stamping decals against a fire-y orange glow in the dark background and one sleepy angel cat.

Spicy Kittens

September 6, 2023 Lisa 2

The internet was made to share pictures and videos of cats. This is fact. And that’s how I learned that tiny feral kitten bebbies that are ungratefully hissing at their human rescuers are called “spicy”. Such a fitting term and I am here for it. So when I had a Read More

Cute little winter bird nail art with stamping decals of birds in hats and scarves on an extra glitzy blue nail polish

Winter Birds

January 25, 2023 Lisa 1

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
