Harvest Moon

November 4, 2022 Lisa 0

It’s been a while since I painted something where I thought the difference between matte and glossy top coat would be interesting to see. You’ll see the photos swap back and forth between the two. This harvest nail art was painted for the Harvest Moon full moon clear back in Read More

A red magnetic nail art with soft rose gold crelly accent nails and stamping decals of fairies, mushrooms, and flora.

Mushroom Fairies

June 24, 2021 Lisa 4

It’s International Fairy Day so I thought I’d share this magnetic red nail art with fairies (of course). I paired them with lots of mushrooms because I love the shape of those things and a little splash of holographic polish in the wings. So basically I went full on sweetness Read More

A medium blue polish with glitters and micro flakies with geometrically stylized cotton candy stamped on top.

Cotton Candy in Abstract

April 1, 2021 Lisa 1

For my last sweet-related design in March, I decided to go even more geometric than I did with the donuts. Since the prompt was for cotton candy and I already had the BP-A08 stamping plate out, I looked to it for some inspiration. It had some dots that faded out Read More

A medium olive/chartreuse nail art with luck, playing cards, dice, and heart/club/spade/diamond stamping decals.

National Playing Card Day

December 28, 2020 Lisa 2

Did you know that today is National Card Playing day? I have known it for the past three years since I keep meaning to paint some card-themed nail art. I keep collecting these card playing stamping plates and I needed an excuse to use them. And I just kept missing Read More

Olive Christmas art featuring accent nails with poinsettia stamping decals and a wee bird and holographic olive polish.

The Poinsettia

December 22, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I proudly prove that I not only have enough green nail polish to paint yet another monochrome green mani, but I have enough olive polishes to do it. *high fives self* I’ve rather struggled to put together monochrome looks with other colors, but this olive mani came together like Read More

Monochrome red reindeer nail art with deep red polishes and a wintery scene created from layered stamping. Merry Christmas!

Red Reindeer Christmas

December 17, 2020 Lisa 3

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More

Nail art with Christmas imagery: Santa, Christmas tree, and Santa's sleigh taking off in a shower of stars on a light tan flakie-filled base.

Christmas Clichés in Neutrals

December 12, 2020 Lisa 3

Browns are not the first color one things of when Christmas colors come up, but you know I like a challenge, friends. So I combined this personal challenge with #pantone2020winterchallenge to bring you today’s look. #pantone2020winterchallenge Ine had some beautiful colors picked this week, but they weren’t brown! So today Read More

Sunset Pirates

September 19, 2020 Lisa 2

Well, that last post took a bit to prepare. Nothing like setting myself an easy first post to get back into the swing of things. 😅 And now it’s time for some pirate nail art since it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! I think today’s design is pretty much the Read More

Three monochrome Christmas manis in purple, blue, and yellow.

Rainbow Christmas part 1

January 10, 2020 Lisa 0

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More

Orange nail art with a fierce tiger stamping decal inspired by Pantone's Orange Tiger color.

Orange Tiger

January 9, 2020 Lisa 0

It’s terribly convenient when the name of a color can be used both as the title of the nail art inspired by it and the subject. Today I have my Orange Tiger mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge run by the lovely Ine (@inegeek) and it’s not getting posted on the last possible Read More
