A glow in the dark pink Alice in Wonderland nail art of Alice falling down the rabbit hole, chasing the White Rabbit, and changing size.

Down the Rabbit Hole

October 6, 2023 Lisa 0

We wish Alice luck as she’s off on her adventure in Wonderland. Meanwhile today’s mani is in celebration of Mad Hatter Day; although ironically it doesn’t have a single image of the hatter himself. It’s a little weird that he gets a day when Alice doesn’t, but apparently a group Read More

I’m so sad I missed shark week, but finding the mental space (let alone the time) to paint last month wasn’t happening. But I found a way to fit sharks in as soon as I could and it’s even on my natural nails. Which should explain the tip wear. 😅 Read More

Star Wars nail art for the Rebel Alliance w/stamping images of "May the 4th Be With You", a rebel fighter, and the Jedi order's framed symbol.

May the 4th Be With You

I don’t know why my Star Wars nail art always turn out very simple. Possibly I’m holding back in case someone is looking for inspiration to paint their own Star Wars mani. It wouldn’t be much help if it was impossible to repeat. So here I am with five stamping Read More

A Halloween-esque Christmas mani w/spooky pastel stockings hung up against pine boughs + bone reindeer on a red to clear thermal w/flakies.

It’s Christmas Time

I have been posting a lot and kinda crashed a little, but there’s more Christmas nail art to post so it’s time to dust myself off and share today’s look: a nod to my favorite Christmas movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. I don’t have a Christmas tradition that I perform Read More

Pokémon nail art with open pokeballs containing Charizard, Pikachu, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur and trainer Ash Ketchum himself on the thumb.

Gotta Catch ’em All

We are catching ’em all by finally catching up. That’s right! I am now fully back on track just in time to collapse from exhaustion. Haha I watched the original Pokemon anime. I didn’t have a Gameboy or anything so I never got into the video game aspect of it, Read More

A deadly combination of holly and skulls for Halloween-esque Christmas nail art on a plum indie polish full of iridescent flakes.

Yeah, I really didn’t get in enough Halloween nail art this year. So I’m giving extra love to my stamping plates that mix it with Christmas. It always feels like a bonus to give a nod to Nightmare Before Christmas, no matter how abstract. The main feature of today’s look Read More

A Halloween mani based on the Children of the Corn book (and movie) by Stephen King with a gradient from black to red to orange.

I am sooo behind on posting. To the point where I rolled a dice to decide which nail art I would post first on my way to catching back up. The happy thing is that I still made all my group deadlines so I was able to be in the Read More

A deep red and prugly green stiletto mani with the Disney-esque evil queen from Snow White and her poison apple. Eat me!

Eat the Poison Apple

October 28, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look was inspired by the second baddest Disney queen: the evil queen. I’m not sure she even had a name, but I love her nose when she goes full crone. I don’t think I’m alone in loving her elderly form so much more than the haughty younger one. She’s Read More

A book/tv/movie inspired Anne of Green Gables mani with stamping decals of the book cover and Anne with gold decorative nail stickers.

Anne of Green Gables

April 4, 2022 Lisa 0

March 2022’s ManixMe box was all about classic literature and reading. They did a bunch of little sets for each book they decided to feature. I decided to base my nail art on Anne of Green Gables. I do remember enjoying reading the series in elementary school, though it was Read More

An outer space Le Petit Prince nail art with stamping decals of the Prince, fox, and rose on a deep navy crelly with white glitter stars.

Le Petit Prince

February 4, 2022 Lisa 0

I did take French when I was in public school, but I never went very far with it so I never had to read Le Petit Prince on its original language. Instead, I read it on my own in English and loved it. In many ways, the fox’s words to Read More
