Ship Ahoy!

September 19, 2022 Lisa 2

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Or at least the barest edge of the end of it depending on your time zone. I’ve been keeping busy with IRL things like finishing painting the deck with my husband. It rained a few days ago and the water beading up it made Read More

A camping nail art with stamping images that progress through leaving the city to go camping in the mountains on a shifty olive base polish.

Wild Heart

It always make me laugh how every summer we all go tropical and ocean-y instead of camping, which is far closer to what most of us end up doing in the summer. That and picnics. 🤤 So I was quite happy to paint a camping nail art and actually had Read More

A fall smoosh marble nail art with a warm duochrome glow, stamping images of leaves + cozily dressed animals, and a berry accent nail.

Falling Leaves

September 2, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s time to play catchup! I’ve participated in three different collabs on Instagram and posted nothing. To be fair, a family member was having heart surgery so my brain could straddle work and that before it was Done. Surgery went well, though, so let’s get into my first fall look Read More

Mythical nail art with teal origami stamping decals of dragons, unicorns, and Pegasus on top of a jelly coral base and pond geometric pattern.

In a Coral Fantasy

Long, long ago I bought Moyou London’s Origami Collection-05 stamping plate. It has lots of origami figures on it (as opposed to the patterns that make the bulk of the collection). I used it in three different manis, fully intending to paint three more manis and fully use the entire Read More

A sandy, beachy nail art with a sign pointing towards the beach, flip flops, and a bag of beach-going essentials plus beach-y words.

Beach, Please!

July 21, 2022 Lisa 0

Summer is the season for beach-y nail art and that generally means I go tropical. Which is funny because the beaches I’ve visited lately are rather cold and dramatic instead of warm and sunny. And instead of walking around in flip flops and laying on a towel with a thick Read More

No Choice Graffiti

July 20, 2022 Lisa 0

In case it wasn’t clear enough when I posted my own thoughts on Maniology’s non-support for women’s reproductive rights, I am very much pro-choice. And in fact, I have been wondering why we on the side of choice continue to allow so-called “pro-lifers” to call themselves such. We know it’s Read More

Buck Moon

Last night was the Buck Moon and it was so big and beautiful in the sky. We left the theater after watching Thor: Love and Thunder and were about to go home with a box of yummy cookies in hand when the kids pointed out that you could see Mount Read More

Today I have a fruity look with golden pineapples on a sophisticated lace art deco pattern. Then I threw half moons into the mix and wrote up a quick mini tutorial on how to recreate the look. I honestly don’t know what it is about pineapples, but making them the Read More

Yin Yang Koi

June 24, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

A sterling silver magnetic (zodiac) cancer nail art w/reverse stamping decals of crabs and a swirly ocean/shell background pattern.

Zodiac Collection: Cancer

June 23, 2022 Lisa 0

It was really hard for me to not make this a red/blue nail art, because crabs = red and water sign = blue. But. But! Supposedly the colors for the cancer astrological sign are grey, white, and blue with a goal for the colors being soft. So I went with Read More
