Year of the Rabbit

January 21, 2023 Lisa 0

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

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

Yule Moon nail art with a sparkly blue sky, full moon and peaceful mansion surrounded by evergreen trees and Christmas tree in the window.

Yule Moon

Today’s look starts with some false nails that I painted years ago and never finished. Just take out the moon and the thumb nail and that’s what was sitting in my drawer for two years until I thought I’d use it for some northern lights prompt on Instagram. I added Read More

Turkeys Wanted

Happy Thanksgiving! Today’s look has taken a while to reach you. I painted it clear back in 2020 after Thanksgiving. So I told myself I would share it next year and never even got around to editing to photos. To continue the tradition, I meant to post it a day Read More

Harvest Moon

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

Narwhale nail art with rainbow swirls on a peach background and a freehand painted narwhale painted on top "Tap that fish!".

Tap that Fish

November 3, 2022 Lisa 0

About five years ago, Adam Ravetch captured the first ever footage of a narwhal using its tusk to hunt fish. They literally tap the fish to stun them and then swim up the rest of the way to nom them down. I thought that was hilarious and, of course, it 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

A camping nail art with stamping images that progress through leaving the city to go camping in the mountains on a shifty olive base polish.

Wild Heart

September 5, 2022 Lisa 2

It always make me laugh how every summer we all go tropical and ocean-y instead of camping, which is far closer to what most of us end up doing in the summer. That and picnics. 🤤 So I was quite happy to paint a camping nail art and actually had Read More

A fall smoosh marble nail art with a warm duochrome glow, stamping images of leaves + cozily dressed animals, and a berry accent nail.

Falling Leaves

September 2, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s time to play catchup! I’ve participated in three different collabs on Instagram and posted nothing. To be fair, a family member was having heart surgery so my brain could straddle work and that before it was Done. Surgery went well, though, so let’s get into my first fall look Read More
