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

Poinsettia nail art using a bright red jelly with white glitter sandwiched inside and a dark blue negative space stamp of poinsettias.

Poinsettia jelly

December 13, 2023 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought to you by poinsettias, a flower that I have painted fairly consistently over the years. (Not nearly as many as roses though.) This is probably the simplest version I’ve ever done since it’s just the base and a negative space pattern of poinsettias on top. I’d Read More

A blue on blue hedgehog nail art design with a double stamped floral hedgehog framed by light blue texture polish.

Winter Hedgehog

It amuses me that I have a very blue (with a little purple) nail art to share right after a lot of Democratic voting victories here in America. I didn’t plan it that way though. This cute little hedgehog mani was painted clear back in 2021 and I just never Read More

A sweet fox nail art using watercolor-esque fox water decals on top of a pale yellow crelly base with metallic floral prints stamped on top.

Water Decal Foxes

It’s funny how we associate different things with different seasons even though they often exist all year round. Like…pumpkins being a fall thing makes sense because that’s when they are ready to be inserted into your face or plopped on your front stoop (this year I’m seeing a lot of Read More

A simple floral nail art in purples and browns with flower and butterfly stamping decals and the word "today".

Floral Today

September 17, 2023 Lisa 0

I was supposed to post this clear back in April. It was for a challenge. With a collage. The only colors I could use were purple and brown and I did a fairly decent job even though I was trying to come back from a painting drought. But I kept Read More

A Blue Moon nail art using a cobalt blue stamping polish with porcelain patterns over a white jelly nail polish with pink shimmer.

Blue Moon

August 30, 2023 Lisa 0

It’s been a while since I painted nail art for the full moon, but today’s look isn’t to make up for one of the moons I missed. Instead, we’re giving some time to the second full moon in August: the blue moon. Blue moons can occur in any month but Read More

A Lunar New Year nail art for the Year of the Cat, which is the zodiac animal for the Vietnamese in red, black, and gold w/dancing cats.

Year of the Cat

January 22, 2023 Lisa 0

Did you know that in the Vietnamese people are celebrating the lunar new year for the Year of the Cat instead of the rabbit? There’s some debate on what caused the cultural change which you can read about in this NPR article. I’m just happy that I knew about it Read More

A black magnetic Scorpio nail art with stamping images of desert things, a scorpion lady, and beautiful scorpions in coppers and oranges.

Zodiac Collection: Scorpio!

October 31, 2022 Lisa 0

Hopefully this is a sign of how peaceful the next few months will be. That’s right, I’m posting the lastest zodiac mani soon after the date where you can be born a Scorpio. Happy birthday to a wonderful group of people! I hope you like the design I painted for Read More

A spring floral mani with yellow, red, and pink tulips and a watering can stamped over a bright green holographic polish.

Spring Tulips

April 6, 2022 Lisa 0

There was a tulip prompt last month that I didn’t have time to paint even though I knew what I wanted to do. Naturally I was able to get to it this month since April tends to have lots of flower and rain prompts. You’ll have to wait on the Read More

A mustard yellow nail art with whimsical floral patterns and moth stamping images. A ManixMe Springtime Stroll mani.

Moth You Be So Floral?

March 2, 2022 Lisa 0

I’m back with another mani where I try to use the items that came in the month’s Mani x Me box. This time it worked out for me and I used everything in the box but the extra item. (A cuticle tape used to mask the area around your nail. Read More
