Yin yang nail art w/a koi fish yin yang stamping decal on stiletto shaped false nails covered in red, blue, and green flakies.

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 simple mustard and turmeric sushi nail art with stamping images of a tray of sushi, nigiri, and a few other Japanese treats.

Happy Sushi Day

June 18, 2022 Lisa 2

Its International Sushi Day and this time I’m not missing out on posting this sushi nail art. I actually celebrated a day early with sushi for my husband and I while the kids nommed on McDonalds (their pick). Ah, well, not everyone loves sushi. We’ve found a great place that’s Read More

A purple shimmery mermaid nail art that says "In a sea of fish, be a mermaid" with mermaid, mermaid tail, and fish stamping images.

Ode to Mermaid

May 21, 2022 Lisa 0

MerMay seems to be more of a traditional/digital artist thing because I haven’t really seen any of the nail challenges acknowledge it for a few years. Luckily the Saucy Mani Squad was looking for prompt suggestions for May and June and I was watching the group chat at the right Read More

A smoky blue lily pond mani with the reflection of the flower moon shining forth, spring cherry blossom stamping decals, and koi.

Flower Moon

May 16, 2022 Lisa 0

Did you know there’s a different “moon” name for every full moon of the month? I kinda was aware that it was a thing (and I suspect every moon has multiple names since in June we can do mead, honey or strawberries), but I joined a moon collab where we Read More

An ultra multichrome base polish from turquoise to purple to orange with ocean floor and swimming mermaids stamped on in black.

Multichrome Mermaids

May 24, 2021 Lisa 0

I like my rainbows so you know I love multichrome polishes, but not all of them are created equal. Some are more rainbow-y than others and the less subtle they are the more I like them. I painted my cindy hand with Quixotic Polish’s “Flying Past the Stars” during the Read More

A soft blue-green mani of pond life, mostly frogs and one fish stamping decal with lily pads and other pond greenery.

On Frog Pond

March 16, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look is yet again something I’ve wanted to paint for a while. I had a few BC stamping plates with lily pad images that matched each other: one with a frog and one with a fish. I always thought they belonged in some kind of nail art together. I Read More

A pale mint and chocolate chip nail polish base with rice, fish, and miso soup stamping decals as a Japanese breakfast.

Fishy Breakfast

February 19, 2021 Lisa 4

I used to be all about the French toast and the crepes stuffed with whip cream and fruit. Like…give me the dessert breakfast, please. And there’s cereal or the typical platter of pancakes/hash browns/bacon/eggs. Those are nice, but that’s not what I typically eat for breakfast anymore. Yesterday I had Read More

Nail art of Santa handing out fishy presents to cute penguins for Christmas and another penguin celebrating New Years on a blue crelly background.

Presents for Penguins

December 20, 2020 Lisa 2

Santa doesn’t just give out presents to all the good boys and girls. Surely all the good penguins also get a fishy treat for Christmas. Although…I am very uncertain what kind of cookies they would leave for Santa. 🤢🤣 When I was little my mom went through a crocheting phase Read More

Sugar skull nail art for the Day of the Dead on black jelly teal glitter fake nails with freehand painted cat and fish sugar skulls and flowers.

Sugar Skull Cat

December 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’ve been wanting to paint a sugar skull cat and accompanying fish for at least two years. In fact, the false nails I used for this mani have been sporting their black jelly base since 2019’s Day of the Dead. I am good at intimidating myself out of freehand painting. Read More

The Fishery - Hermit Werds - matte black nail art with a golden koi fish and glossy stamping

The Fishery

November 24, 2020 Lisa 2

Today we’re journeying to the past and a fishy mani that I painted clear back in 2019. What a wonderful year (compared to this year). 😜 It kind of blows my mind that people can spend several thousand dollars to purchase one koi fish, but yes, they do. I think Read More
