A modern red, orange, and yellow (mustard) cactus nail art combined with abstract shapes to create a fun minimalist look.

Autumnal Cactus

August 15, 2022 Lisa 0

You may have noticed that I’m using a lot of false nails lately. Well, this is the last mani I painted before I had to chop my nails short. Y’see, that time a few months ago when I shut my finger in the door has come back to haunt my Read More

Graffiti nail art protesting Roe vs Wade being overturned with a neon freehand painted uterus flipping the fimbriae + "No Choice".

No Choice Graffiti

July 20, 2022 Lisa 0

In case it wasn’t clear enough when I posted my own thoughts on Maniology’s non-support for women’s reproductive rights, I am very much pro-choice. And in fact, I have been wondering why we on the side of choice continue to allow so-called “pro-lifers” to call themselves such. We know it’s Read More

Chinese New Year of the Tiger nail art in their lucky colors (blue, grey, white, orange) w/nail stamping decals of tigers & Chinese characters.

Lucky Year of the Tiger

July 9, 2022 Lisa 2

I’ve fallen into a pattern when it comes to Chinese New Year. It’s always a good idea to paint one in red/gold/black colors. They are the tradition and are a better resource for others later on. However, I like bringing rainbows where people use neutrals (or in this case a Read More

Golden pineapple nail art on blue stiletto falsies with a beautiful art deco lace pattern stamped in the background and half moons.

Royal Pineapple

July 7, 2022 Lisa 1

Today I have a fruity look with golden pineapples on a sophisticated lace art deco pattern. Then I threw half moons into the mix and wrote up a quick mini tutorial on how to recreate the look. I honestly don’t know what it is about pineapples, but making them the Read More

A raisin-colored night sky strawberry moon nail art with a full pink freehanded moon + strawberry gnome and strawberry plant stamping decals.

Strawberry Moon

June 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Well…between the chaos of visitors and breaking nails I managed to miss the collab deadline for this nail art, but I’m still posting on the day of the Strawberry Moon! This nail art turned out slightly plainer that my original sketch, but I still have lots of strawberries, a full 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

Beach kitty nail art with stamping decals of cute cats playing on a sandy beach and catching some rays. Plus a bonus lighthouse.

Beach Kitties

May 11, 2022 Lisa 1

It kinda feels like I’m heading into summer nail art a little early since today’s cat nail art is set on the beach and the new MxM box is Pool Party themed. It’s fine. Can’t let my cats fall too far behind the birds, right? I painted this nail art Read More

A mustard crelly with small purple and red glitters with chocolate Easter bunny stamping decals who have been munched on top.

Death of Chocolate

April 30, 2022 Lisa 0

Some day I really hope to have time to make a super fancy Candy Land mani, but today I only had time for some quick chocolate bunnies. Pretty sure these came from some kind of meme and I love it. I also decided to use one of my brown stamping Read More

A holiday mashup nail design for Halloween and Easter with a pink/yellow thermal polish and zombie/monster rabbit stamping decals.

Easter-ween

April 8, 2022 Lisa 0

I’ve really been enjoying the Instagram prompts from @inkednailzartchallenge. They’re just that little bit edgy and alt-culture for me. I hit a few prompts in March and I’m going to get them all this month if I can. They started off April with a bang by coming up with an Read More

A layered landscape mani of a woodland with a path running through that a woman is biking down. Includes secret Sasquatch/Bigfoot.

Woodland Bike Ride

March 7, 2022 Lisa 1

Today’s look was a lesson in how difficult those layered landscape nail art designs are. Also, I am kicking myself because I forgot a few plates I had that would have offered a few better options. Oh, well. I learned a lot from painting this one and still love my Read More
