A purple shimmery mermaid nail art that says "In a sea of fish, be a mermaid" with mermaid, mermaid tail, and fish stamping images.

Ode to Mermaid

MerMay seems to be more of a traditional/digital artist thing because I haven’t really seen any of the nail challenges acknowledge it for a few years. Luckily the Saucy Mani Squad was looking for prompt suggestions for May and June and I was watching the group chat at the right Read More

A brocade-like Thailand nail art featuring Buddah meditating over a lotus blossom + a Thai flame fabric pattern over a flakie purple polish.

Thailand Meditations

March 29, 2022 Lisa 0

My husband spent two years in Thailand when he was much younger and still speaks a little Thai. So needless to say we both would love to visit Thailand. Mind you I am not fond of the high humidity high heat combination so we’re definitely not staying, but I want Read More

A soft orange smoosh mani with cute bus and camera stamping decals with plants growing out of and around them.

Bus Ride to Somewhere

March 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought about by more Instagram prompts: smoosh marble and bus. I knew I had a beautiful image of a bus on KADS’ Flower-16 so I decided to go with that. I followed it up with talk of travel because it really felt like a school trip kind Read More

A dark blue steampunk nail art with a Westernpunk theme of sheriffs and horses stamped with an old gold stamping polish.

Westernpunk

March 8, 2022 Lisa 0

I have waited two years to post these. Why? It just never seemed to be the right time and it just kept on being so until “steampunk” popped up as a prompt in Instagram. Of course. And somehow the timing seems even more right because Cowgirl Style posted recently. I Read More

Soft penguin nail art with metallic black stamping images of fanciful penguins and grey-blue geometric ice patterns.

Enchanted Penguins

Everything around me is saying spring (except, perhaps, the temperature of the room I’m in), but it technically is still winter so: penguins! And that makes me happy because I haven’t painted much in the way of penguin nail art and I have…so, so many stamping plates… #AZNailArtChallenge – ‘P’ Read More

Ladybug nail art with magenta and purple metallic stamping polishes in magically wild patterns.

Secret Ladybug Forest

February 17, 2022 Lisa 0

I love it when a mani looks equally good in a matte and glossy finish because it makes me feel like the number of photos I post are justified. 😂 Today’s ladybug nail art combines even more things I love by using a non-traditional ladybug color scheme (magenta and purple Read More

A Valentine's Day nail art with rosegold lace stamping on a pink thermal jelly with reverse stamping decals saying "Call me! XOXO".

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

A lovely red, pink, and gold multichrome magnetic nail polish paired with tiger paper cut stamping images for a Year of the Tiger zodiac mani.

Year of the Tiger

February 2, 2022 Lisa 0

I sadly ran out of steam when it came to posting a Year of the Tiger zodiac nail art on the exact day of Chinese New Year. On the other hand, the celebration typically lasts 15 days so I think I’m still within relevance. Nail art products used Base Polish: Read More

A plum-colored nail art celebrating Carnival season in Italy with golden strings of beads and many different masks.

Carnival

January 29, 2022 Lisa 0

Here we are: my last catchup post from the move. The #AZ prompt this time was ‘I’ is for Italy. I thought about going with food since I definitely had the stamping plates for it, but I had already painted food with the France prompt. I also pretty much never Read More

Elegant bamboo forest nail art with stamping images of a lady wearing a kimono and a house built deep in a bamboo forest.

Bamboo Forest Retreat

August 4, 2021 Lisa 1

I’m trying a new (to me) challenge this month because I liked its prompts the best: #Sammys2021Challenge run by @my_nail_envy. Its first prompt was Forest and I really wanted to use this image of a tiny lady in a kimono holding a giant lotus leaf and framed by some bamboo. Read More
