A tarot card mani featuring The Sun card using a space-esque stripped background, sun and moon cycle half moons and golden tarot cards.

Tarot Card: The Sun

February 22, 2024 Lisa 0

I have so much respect for artists that manage to get through the whole tarot deck. I’ve seen several try and even finishing a set of the 22 major arcana cards is a huge accomplishment. They have so much symbolism associated with them that if you’re doing it right, just Read More

A pink magnetic Christmas pun nail art with cute mistle-toads instead of just mistletoe and a couple kissing beneath the toad anyway.

Under the Mistle Toad

Today’s second look is a marriage between two Instagram prompts and my ongoing interest in using all the puns on Moyou London’s Noel Collection-10 stamping plate. Picking my pun was easy. One of the prompts was mistletoe which perfectly matched the Mistle Toad. The next prompt was ornament. The toad Read More

A peachy hygge tea nail art with stamping decals of a tea pot, a stack of books with a tea cup, and "stay cozy" decorated with leaves.

Stay Cozy

I managed to paint and turn in some Instagram collab manis during the non-posting stint, so I have another mani to share today. The prompt was hygge and the group was started by Lauren (@zenstamping) to follow the themes for Maniology’s ManixMe boxes. Buying their monthly boxes isn’t required to Read More

A Thanksgiving nail art with dancing (or fighting) turkeys against a deep orange base with magenta shimmer and copper vegetable stamping.

Alas, the gap in nail art happened as predicted, but at least you had some warning this time, my poor reader! Today’s look was obviously in celebration of the United State’s Thanksgiving. Honestly, it’s a bit of a problematic holiday to me considering the story we tell about it compared Read More

A golden, orange, and brown magnetic mani of fall leaves gently blending into each other for a soft, abstract look. + one bastard stink bug.

Fall Nemesis

I think I’m sorting out the frustrations keeping me from nail art-ing. It’s a combination of three things: First, having too many designs in a row that were struggle and the results were not true love. Output garbage = feel like garbage, I guess. Second, Google Chrome sucking and making Read More

A blue on blue hedgehog nail art design with a double stamped floral hedgehog framed by light blue texture polish.

Winter Hedgehog

It amuses me that I have a very blue (with a little purple) nail art to share right after a lot of Democratic voting victories here in America. I didn’t plan it that way though. This cute little hedgehog mani was painted clear back in 2021 and I just never Read More

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

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

Sexy ghost nail art w/leggy ghost models posing against a burnt orange background, gold stars, black/cream stripes & cute quotes. Recreation.

Hot Ghost October

October 4, 2023 Lisa 2

Today’s look might just confirm for you that I am odd. Last year @iamdeliasnails painted an absolutely beautiful ghost mani and I told her then that I wanted to recreate it. I did not tell her that I was going to take liberties in the elements that I changed. Because Read More

A celestial animal nail design with decals of a silver-outlined celestial deer, rabbit, and owl on a blue jelly sky with starry glitter.

Autumn Nights

September 28, 2023 Lisa 4

The title of the post is the name of the prompt I painted for. So I’m not being very imaginative there, but I do think I’m improving on the think out of the box thing. Because if I’d painted this a few years ago it would have been some trees Read More

A sweet fox nail art using watercolor-esque fox water decals on top of a pale yellow crelly base with metallic floral prints stamped on top.

Water Decal Foxes

September 23, 2023 Lisa 0

It’s funny how we associate different things with different seasons even though they often exist all year round. Like…pumpkins being a fall thing makes sense because that’s when they are ready to be inserted into your face or plopped on your front stoop (this year I’m seeing a lot of Read More
