Dragon Scale

The dragons are here and they are magnetic! Esmaltes da Kelly/Phoenix makes such amazingly complex magnetic nail polishes. It’s terrible for my wallet, but great for my nails. With a prompt like Animal Print + magnetic, it was a simple decision to pick scales and a gorgeous green/aqua magnetic. And Read More

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

Floral Today

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 bright yellow hibiscus and pineapple nail art with a "sexy" censored pineapple stamping decal to make it tropically funny.

Sometimes when you get back into a hobby after a long absence you just…mess up on things a bunch because you forgot some of the “checks” you normally do. Today’s false nail set were stamped upside down from my usual. Honestly, I orientate my nail art the way I do Read More

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

An alternate glow in the dark sunset nail art with dandelion silhouettes stamped on top. Sunset: purple to pink to orange to yellow to green.

Dandelion Glow

My kids are both back with their bio-mom now (😭) so I guess now is a good time to start posting again. Today’s look is brought to you by a set of falsies that I’d painted with a purple glow in the dark for a mani that I never painted. Read More

A cozy, matte scarf-wrapped fox nail art with more stamping decals of winter gear, roses, and snowflakes on a copper magnetic base.

Cozy in Winter

Am I going to jinx things if I say that I’m still trying to use every image on the Nicole Diary Fashion Trends ND-002 stamping plate? Because I am and today’s look puts me at the halfway mark for the larger images. I even used my favorite image: the fox! Read More

Sturgeon Moon nail art with flying fish and a pink dolphin guided by a girl on a magical journey across a shifty pink and grey sky.

I think the moon manis have been my best project this year although it may be too soon to say since we’re only four prompts in. All I know is that I’ve been very happy with each one for different reasons. This one turned out super cute and I actually Read More

Tropical nail art with a solar polish smoosh marble base, negative space hibiscus flowers, and reverse stamping green beetles on top.

Solar Tropics

Today’s look has been living in my head for a while. I snagged several bottles of Just Add Sun polishes (which I’m quickly reviewing) when they were on sale in my local grocery store and have been slooowly using them all. I thought they would look really neat in a 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

A glitzy Sleeping Beauty nail art with stamping decals of a castle buried in thorns, thorns, lady knight, and the princess (aurora).

Witch of Slumber

July 1, 2022 Lisa 1

It’s been a while since I painted a new mani for my Witches of ‘S’ series, but it feels like a good time to paint nail art of women with power(s). Today’s design is also my make-up mani for ‘K’ is for Kingdom. Because of this, I decided to highlight Read More
