Chinese New Year nail art for the Year of the Dragon w/holographic gold foil, black/red polish, gold nail stickers + a stamped dragon symbol.

Year of the Dragon

February 10, 2024 Lisa 0

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

Hot pink llama nail art with a crazy sweater print background and stamping decals of llamas kissing and llama puns for Valentine's Day.

Llama Llovin’

I feel like we transitioned very suddenly from desaturated winter nail art to a neon punch in the face and I can’t apologize. It’s February and pink is in the air. Today’s look is all about loving llamas and llamas in love. I don’t know where my love of llamas Read More

A hot chocolate nail art with reverse stamping decals of marshmallows leaping into a hot chocolate mug and people holding warm mugs of cocoa.

Hot Chocolate Weather

January 26, 2024 Lisa 0

It’s already so warm where I live that I’m not sure a hot chocolate mani really fits, but a prompt is a prompt and I already had this painted. Two days ago I noticed the first snow drop bud in my yard. I went to take a picture of it Read More

Monstrous family portrait nail art with a sweet green wallpaper background and reverse stamping decals of framed monster strewn with cobwebs.

Dead the Halls

January 8, 2024 Lisa 0

Today’s look just didn’t want to come together in my head. The prompt was Dead the Halls and I had plenty of ideas that I could paint for it, but nothing really stood out to me. My sticking point was that I had this monster Christmas wreath image I wanted Read More

A shimmery orchid and ogup sewing nail art with nail stamping about the forbidden fabric scissors and cutting patterns from fabric.

Not the Fabric Scissors

January 7, 2024 Lisa 0

It is the age old battle between protecting your good sewing scissors from the depredations of the non-sewing heathens who will dull them gouging open cardboard boxes and the excuse of I can’t find any scissors. I am fortunate in that my spouse understands that you treat nice things nicely 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

December 31, 2023 Lisa 0

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 gingerbread nail art with a Christmas tree and gingerbread people, house, and reindeer stickers and frosted edges with rhinestone gumdrops.

Sweet Gingerbread 1.1

December 19, 2023 Lisa 0

I actually posted this mani last year and saw, too late, a gingerbread mani by Megan (@two.peas.and.polish). It had an element in it that I wanted to steal so bad. I even mentioned it at the end of the 1.0 gingerbread blog post. I’ve embedded her Insta post below the Read More

A pink boozy ho ho hammered nail art with wacky-acting Santas who may have had a little too much eggnog while getting ready for Christmas.

Ho Ho Hammered

Two years ago I purchased a set of pink jelly gel polish from Born Pretty thinking that I loved jelly polishes and pinks are so pretty so for sure I’d use them. This is…the first time. Yeah, it’s been a rough two years for spending time on this hobby so Read More
