An anti-Valentine yet Halloween gothic nail art with a heart-stealing demon lady and anatomical heart cupcake and gothic reflective glitter.

Gothic Valentine

March 3, 2022 Lisa 0

Reflective glitter polishes have been popular for the past couple of months and I resisted the trend for a while. Then I bought one from Polish Pickup and after swatching it realized, yeah, they’re pretty fun. But I own enough polishes as it is so I decided to get Familiar Read More

Valentine's nail art in white, red, and pink with water decals of cute white kittens and their love for balls of yarn.

A Yarn Love Story

February 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Happy Valentine’s Day! While I much prefer the sales on China’s Singles Day, the nail art for this holiday is much prettier. Today I decided to highlight other kinds of love by featuring kittens and string/yarn instead. Possibly it’s also because beyond adding hearts to things, I rarely highlight romantic Read More

Call Me! XOXO

February 6, 2022 Lisa 0

And we’re back to the holidays with Valentine’s Day coming up. This one was a simple lace + something fun mani. I paired a “Call me! XOXO” stamping decal with more “XOXO”s and a mobile phone. Really in many ways my favorite part was the lace stamping image paired with Read More

Hocus Pocus

January 25, 2022 Lisa 0

Once upon a time I painted a love potion-esque nail art. It was pre-blog and there was pink. I can even wave the stamping plate I used uselessly in the air. You can’t see it because this isn’t a video, but all the parts are there. Anyway, I sadly cannot 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

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 Valentine's Day candy nail art with nail foil-filled candy stamping decals all on a dusty blue to magenta thermal polish with red to copper flakies.

Foil Candies

February 3, 2021 Lisa 2

A while ago I had a brief delusion that I would use gilding nail foils more. They are fun and shiny! So I bought four more colors of them, none of which are used in this candy nail art design, and none of which have been used for over a Read More

Blue and pink nail art of a gentleman cat dressing up in a bow tie to woo his lady in the city using stamping decals.

Gentleman Cat Woos His Lady

January 21, 2021 Lisa 3

So I bought a circle stamping plate years ago that had an image of this little cat wearing a bow tie. And I always thought he was a bit of a nerd dressing up to impress his (cat) lady friend. (He does. Bow ties are great.) This week I finally Read More

A medium olive/chartreuse nail art with luck, playing cards, dice, and heart/club/spade/diamond stamping decals.

National Playing Card Day

December 28, 2020 Lisa 2

Did you know that today is National Card Playing day? I have known it for the past three years since I keep meaning to paint some card-themed nail art. I keep collecting these card playing stamping plates and I needed an excuse to use them. And I just kept missing Read More
