A sterling silver magnetic (zodiac) cancer nail art w/reverse stamping decals of crabs and a swirly ocean/shell background pattern.

Cancer

June 23, 2022 Lisa 0

It was really hard for me to not make this a red/blue nail art, because crabs = red and water sign = blue. But. But! Supposedly the colors for the cancer astrological sign are grey, white, and blue with a goal for the colors being soft. So I went with Read More

A raisin-colored night sky strawberry moon nail art with a full pink freehanded moon + strawberry gnome and strawberry plant stamping decals.

Strawberry Moon

June 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Well…between the chaos of visitors and breaking nails I managed to miss the collab deadline for this nail art, but I’m still posting on the day of the Strawberry Moon! This nail art turned out slightly plainer that my original sketch, but I still have lots of strawberries, a full Read More

A smoky blue lily pond mani with the reflection of the flower moon shining forth, spring cherry blossom stamping decals, and koi.

Flower Moon

May 16, 2022 Lisa 0

Did you know there’s a different “moon” name for every full moon of the month? I kinda was aware that it was a thing (and I suspect every moon has multiple names since in June we can do mead, honey or strawberries), but I joined a moon collab where we Read More

A teal rainy nail art with stamping decals of rain and a humanoid alligator with an umbrella and raincoat. ManixMe mani.

My Favorite Weather

May 2, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is very reptilian since it features an anthropomorphic alligator (or crocodile if I misidentified it) and is all about my favorite weather: rain! No one should be surprised that I painted this at the end of April which is generally considered to be the rainy month in the Read More

A blue and red nail art with stamping decals of pink umbrellas, singing yellow birds, and rainy clouds and two nails covered in red flakies.

Singing in the Rain

April 29, 2022 Lisa 0

I’ve had this nail art sketched out in my nail art ideas booklet for a looong time and I was super happy to finally have an excuse to paint it for @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘U’ is for Umbrella prompt. Pretty much combining happy wild songbirds with my favorite weather (rain) and umbrellas! Read More

Taurus nail art with a blue/green magnetic polish and stamping decals of oxen, fields, grain, and a Taurus symbol.

Zodiac Collection: Taurus

April 28, 2022 Lisa 0

We’re back for another eastern zodiac nail art. So for a starter, happy birthday to all the Taurus out there! Now let’s break out the false nails. Since Taurus is an Earth element and the ox is often associated with farming, I decided to paint that for my mani. I Read More

A salmon pink and green gardening nail art for people with plants on the brain. Actual brain and flower reverse stamping decals.

Crazy Plant Lady

April 21, 2022 Lisa 0

It’s amazing this first year in the new house, watching the efforts of the gardeners before me continue to unfold. There are some plants I am super excited about, a lot of bushes that need to be trimmed back when they’re done blooming, and so much more planning and learning Read More

A spring floral mani with yellow, red, and pink tulips and a watering can stamped over a bright green holographic polish.

Spring Tulips

April 6, 2022 Lisa 0

There was a tulip prompt last month that I didn’t have time to paint even though I knew what I wanted to do. Naturally I was able to get to it this month since April tends to have lots of flower and rain prompts. You’ll have to wait on the Read More

A layered landscape mani of a woodland with a path running through that a woman is biking down. Includes secret Sasquatch/Bigfoot.

Woodland Bike Ride

March 7, 2022 Lisa 1

Today’s look was a lesson in how difficult those layered landscape nail art designs are. Also, I am kicking myself because I forgot a few plates I had that would have offered a few better options. Oh, well. I learned a lot from painting this one and still love my Read More

Quartz crystal nail art in soft corals and whites with a reverse stamping images of quartz crystals with purple spring flowers.

Quartz

March 4, 2022 Lisa 0

I meant to get this written up sooner, but I made the mistake of wandering outside to weed for a bit. The new yard is much bigger than the old and the abundance of rain has kept certain plants growing all winter. In other words, I was clawing things out Read More
