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

December 23, 2022 Lisa 0

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

December 19, 2022 Lisa 0

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

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

A pink glow in the dark crelly with Disney villain Ursula nail art complete with tentacles, shell necklace, and her attack on Eric's ship.

Disney Villain: Ursula

June 3, 2021 Lisa 2

So the @HalloweenForeverCollab picked Disney (or other animated shows) villains in neons or glow in the dark and, well, how does one pick a single villain out of so many wonderful prospects? Easy. You just go straight for Ursula and can’t convince yourself to paint anything else. (Admittedly I already Read More

A champagne to rose to purple thermal polish combined with stamping decals of mugs, tea pots, and Alice falling endlessly.

Happy International Tea Day!

December 15, 2020 Lisa 5

For all the coffee nail art I have painted over the years, I have to admit I’ve been drinking more tea than coffee lately. It started with a strong tea drinking culture at work and then I started trying to cut down on caffeine later in the day. Now I Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 3. Slippery is a nudibranch (Hypselodoris bullocki). Dune is a sandworm from the world of Dune. Armor is an armored snail. Rocket is Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy. Outpost is a stone fort. Storm is a sharknado full of sharks. Trap is a pair of pitcher plants and a bug victim.

Inktober 2020 – Week 3

October 19, 2020 Lisa 6

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve made it to the halfway point and a little past it. Woof! I also didn’t finish one of my ink drawing on the day I was supposed to and had to play catch Read More
