Solar Tropics

Today’s look has been living in my head for a while. I snagged several bottles of Just Add Sun polishes (which I’m quickly reviewing) when they were on sale in my local grocery store and have been slooowly using them all. I thought they would look really neat in a Read More

Buck Moon

Last night was the Buck Moon and it was so big and beautiful in the sky. We left the theater after watching Thor: Love and Thunder and were about to go home with a box of yummy cookies in hand when the kids pointed out that you could see Mount Read More

Lucky Year of the Tiger

July 9, 2022 Lisa 2

I’ve fallen into a pattern when it comes to Chinese New Year. It’s always a good idea to paint one in red/gold/black colors. They are the tradition and are a better resource for others later on. However, I like bringing rainbows where people use neutrals (or in this case a Read More

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

Zodiac Collection: Cancer

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

Strawberry Moon

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

Flower Moon

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

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

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

Crazy Plant Lady

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
