The time of the Gemini is coming to an end so I finally got myself together and took the matte photos I needed to post. This is just one of those looks that works well with matte and glossy so I wanted to share both. Of course this is a Read More

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

Zodiac Collection: Aries

March 28, 2022 Lisa 0

I’m back with the third installment from the Zodiac Collection. We are in the time of Aries, a firey member of the zodiac that is also associated with goats and the color red. I went with a flame motif and used Maniology’s ManixMe zodiac stamping plates to guide this look Read More

Rock ‘n Roll

Music is today’s subject. Particularly rock ‘n roll. I spent a little time looking up different rock groups. It’s amazing how tacky and fun their outfits were. So many crazy patterns and animal prints to go with the long hair. In the end I found myself coming up with a Read More

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

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

Dramatic purple rose nail art with a magnetic purple polish peeking out from negative space rose patterns and token butterflies.

Magnetic Purple Roses

February 2, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought to you by the color purple, the subject roses, and the strange feeling that we kiiiinda posted something similar not so long ago. However, the use (finally) of a purple magnetic polish I’ve had for years hopefully brings enough of a different element to this so Read More

I have a joined an ongoing collab run by the amazing @denise.nailed.it that tries to use their ManixMe box in the month that it arrives. I need this because I’ve been sucking really badly at getting to my boxes and FOMO means I can’t not get the ones I’m interested Read More

Witch of Sakura

I am here again today to gloat to you about how I had this nail art planned out several years ago and I got to it! I know it’s a song I’ve been singing a lot lately, but it feels so good! I’m actually trying to put together a new Read More

It’s Raining Fish

So, yeah. I’m behind. Between playing Don’t Starve (the old distraction, which I haven’t even touched once for over 24 hours /sob) and moving my blog and breaking it (the new distraction, shoot me), I missed a few prompts from #nailartchallenge. Namely Fish and Umbrella. I figure my previous prompt Read More
