Oceanic Watermelon Picnic

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

Nail art of dinosaur eggs (one broken with yolk, one glow in the dark with a baby dinosaur, and one just hatched) stamped on a blood red glitter filled base.

Life Finds a Way

April 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I have managed to get my hands on all four of Moyou London’s Jurassic Park stamping plates. So instead of painting typical Easter nail art for the #AZNailArtChallenge ‘Y’ is for Yolk or even more Gudetama nail art (which I do want to do more of some time), I went Read More

Easter nail art starting with a soft grey crelly with pastel glitters and a cute anthropomorphic bunny wearing a carrot t-shirt and carrots!

Rabbits and Root Vegetables

April 5, 2021 Lisa 1

Just like we shouldn’t be feeding ducks bread, we shouldn’t be giving rabbits carrots regularly as they are too high in sugar for them. Rabbits should be nomming the greens on the carrots instead (which by the way you can eat in your salad as well; one half of the Read More

A cupcake nail art with a cupcake water decal accent nail and creamsicle-like water spotted nails in white, orange, and coral.

Creamy Cupcake + Water Spotting Tutorial

March 21, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s nail art was brought to you by cupcakes, the water spotted technique, and water decals. Today’s tutorial brought to you by my desire to figure out why I wasn’t getting larger spots. It’s funny how things come together. I could have done advanced/reverse stamping cupcakes as I have tons Read More

Two baked goods manis: one pink with sprinkles donut mani of people "hunting" a donut and the other a yummy chocolate chip cookie nail art with a hungry bunny.

Two Baked Goods Manis

March 18, 2021 Lisa 2

I’m pretty sure now that trying to lump these posts together isn’t working for me. LOL Oh, well. Everything you do is just practice for the next thing. Today I have a cookie nail art and a donut one. This shouldn’t be a surprise since the challenge I’m following this Read More

Three sweet nail art looks: yellow and orange heart balloons, green clover candies, and sweet blue and pink lollipops.

Three Sweet Manis

March 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making 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

A dark burgundy to nude with glitter baby boomer French tip with silly hungry cat stamping decals on top and "Love at first bite" nail art.

Love at First Bite

February 15, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look is another design I’ve been wanting to paint for a few years. It’s also one I wanted to post around Valentine’s Day as both an alternate perspective of the day and an anti-Valentine mani. And if you follow me on Instagram, I actually did manage to post it Read More

A magenta-purple mani with tons of blue and magenta flakies with a wee little smiling banana stamping decal.

Banana-rama

January 27, 2021 Lisa 2

There was a time when I was making myself a green smoothie every day and my home was full of the overripe bananas from the store because I could get them cheaper that way. And while bananas were thriftily in all of them, I was making the real deal green Read More

Fruit-themed bright orange nail art with orange slice and orange stamping decals on top.

The Orange-iest

January 22, 2021 Lisa 2

The only way this nail art could get orange-er is if I’d used an orange stamping polish instead of black. Kinda wish I had, but avoiding black stamping is my personal and eternal challenge so I can’t say it really needed it. 😆 I actually painted this one clear back Read More
