Did you know that in the Vietnamese people are celebrating the lunar new year for the Year of the Cat instead of the rabbit? There’s some debate on what caused the cultural change which you can read about in this NPR article. I’m just happy that I knew about it Read More

I’ve been painting nail art for Chinese New Year since 2018. It kinda terrifies me that I will have to paint for five more years before I can rest on my laurels and just repost the nail art I already did (optionally, mean 😜). In previous years I painted at Read More

One last nail art to post before the new year begins and of course that means it’s going to be New Years nail art. And it’s on my natural nails which have been fairly absent except for a few older nail arts I posted the past few months. By necessity Read More

Sometimes I think about all the times I count a stamping plate as “used”, when I didn’t use my favorite image on it. The one that made me hit “add to cart”. It definitely makes my stamping plate usage spreadsheet look worse. LOL But with today’s foxy look, I’m hitting Read More

Sagittarius nail art featuring the archer centaur and Sagittarius symbol on a burgundy magnetically pink polish with flakies and holo glitter.

Zodiac Collection: Sagittarius

Today I have another late mani, this time for Sagittarius (though technically we haven’t moved to another zodiac sign yet…). I’m really loving how today’s look ended up. This kind of finish with a magnetic polish really works for me. I was a little stuck about what to stamp outside Read More

Happy Hanukkah

It’s incomprehensible to me why anti-Semitism persists in existing, but it really feels like it’s shouting a lot louder right now. So even though I am not a Jew (or a Christian or anything but someone who can cherry pick any holiday they want), I thought it was time to Read More

Cute owls dressed up in costumes--ghost/vampire/mummy/witch/skeleton--stamped onto a white/black thermal polish with Halloween glitter.

Halloween Owls

Once upon a time I told myself a story about how I was going to find time to release two blog posts on Halloween. And lo! The gamble of saving the most Halloween nail art to post last did not pan out. That’s fine because we are Halloween all year Read More

Hopefully this is a sign of how peaceful the next few months will be. That’s right, I’m posting the lastest zodiac mani soon after the date where you can be born a Scorpio. Happy birthday to a wonderful group of people! I hope you like the design I painted for Read More

A punany bee nail art with stamping decals of ghost bees (boo bees) on a bright orange crelly with green glitter that glows orange in the dark.

Boo Bees

August 4, 2022 Lisa 0

Why, yes, I am a child at heart. So once I’d noticed that one of the stamping plates I had both made a pun that was a little bit naughty while also being innocent and had a Halloween element, I had to do it. Had to. And that is why Read More

Golden pineapple nail art on blue stiletto falsies with a beautiful art deco lace pattern stamped in the background and half moons.

Royal Pineapple

July 7, 2022 Lisa 1

Today I have a fruity look with golden pineapples on a sophisticated lace art deco pattern. Then I threw half moons into the mix and wrote up a quick mini tutorial on how to recreate the look. I honestly don’t know what it is about pineapples, but making them the Read More
