Anne of Green Gables

April 4, 2022 Lisa 0

March 2022’s ManixMe box was all about classic literature and reading. They did a bunch of little sets for each book they decided to feature. I decided to base my nail art on Anne of Green Gables. I do remember enjoying reading the series in elementary school, though it was Read More

An outer space Le Petit Prince nail art with stamping decals of the Prince, fox, and rose on a deep navy crelly with white glitter stars.

Le Petit Prince

February 4, 2022 Lisa 0

I did take French when I was in public school, but I never went very far with it so I never had to read Le Petit Prince on its original language. Instead, I read it on my own in English and loved it. In many ways, the fox’s words to Read More

A pink glow in the dark crelly with Disney villain Ursula nail art complete with tentacles, shell necklace, and her attack on Eric's ship.

Disney Villain: Ursula

June 3, 2021 Lisa 2

So the @HalloweenForeverCollab picked Disney (or other animated shows) villains in neons or glow in the dark and, well, how does one pick a single villain out of so many wonderful prospects? Easy. You just go straight for Ursula and can’t convince yourself to paint anything else. (Admittedly I already Read More

Happy May the 4th (be with you)! Star Wars fan everywhere are hopefully finding something geeky to do. Naturally, I painted my nails. It’s been several years since my last Star Wars mani and I decided to go both more complex and focus on more recent releases such as The Read More

Mario vs Bullet Bills

March 9, 2021 Lisa 1

So January’s Polished Gamers Box was Mario-themed and they started back up the tradition of having a group collage due by the end of the next month (because by then most people have gotten their loot). No one has put the collage together yet. But I’m to the point where Read More

Yellow and orange nail art with the demon Luci (cat) from Netflix's Disenchanted freehand painted on top of flames.

Luci the “Cat”

January 19, 2021 Lisa 2

My husband and I have been watching Netflix’s animated tv show Disenchanted since it started. It was created by the same person that started The Simpsons and Futurama–both shows that I watched in their early seasons. So if your sense of humor loved either of them, you’ll also love Disenchanted. Read More

October 26, 2020 Lisa 3

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I can’t believe Week 4 is over! Subject-wise I was all over the place, but I still went with a lot of animals like scorpion and lobster which are both part of the Phylum Read More

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve made it to the halfway point and a little past it. Woof! I also didn’t finish one of my ink drawing on the day I was supposed to and had to play catch Read More

The Scream

October 2, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I’m kicking off my Halloween season with a modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch. Because it’s the season of screaming! (Except don’t. Because that creates more water droplets. 😱) I was really hoping to make the simple lines of the stamping image pop Read More

Baby boomer french tip nails with a Wonder Woman water decal.

Wonder Woman

March 10, 2020 Lisa 2

I went even simpler with my simple nail art today with a single Wonder Woman water decal and one little row of stars to follow my french tip. Why? Because I’m still steeped in my delusion that I can also finish #liganailistachallenge’s March prompt list. Only two to go, right? Read More
