Yin Yang Koi

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

Back to school nail art with chalkboard stamping images about education topics (esp science) on a charcoal rainbow flakie background.

I typically don’t paint back to school nail art or anything of the sort because I’m out of school and I’m not even remotely in charge of my stepchildrens’ schooling. Plus by August my old office was so hot. It was really hard to get much nail art done. So Read More

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

Cowgirl nail art on a green base with pink glitters, pink stamping decals of pink cowhide print, cowboy hat, and cowgirl with a "bang" flag.

The past two days have sucked and I’m just glad they are over. I was able to finish this nail art in time to post on Instagram, but I couldn’t write the blog post until now. Even the nail art itself was rushed. I had to re-apply the glossy top Read More

Candy nail art with sweet wrapped treats on a purple and dark pink thermal polish stuffed with glitters.

The holiday has already passed, but the nail art world tends to continue with plenty of Valentine’s-related nail art until the end of February (when we can all switch to the spring designs we’ve been craving). I have failed to acquire any of the discount candy booty, but I have Read More

Valentine's nail art in white, red, and pink with water decals of cute white kittens and their love for balls of yarn.

A Yarn Love Story

Happy Valentine’s Day! While I much prefer the sales on China’s Singles Day, the nail art for this holiday is much prettier. Today I decided to highlight other kinds of love by featuring kittens and string/yarn instead. Possibly it’s also because beyond adding hearts to things, I rarely highlight romantic Read More

Nail art covered with bows including a bow nail charm on top of a white crelly filled with rainbow glitters.

Bound with Bows

Today’s look is a very simple mani with bows since that was the prompt I had to work with. Honestly, I rather struggled with what I was going to do and turned to search engines for inspiration. I rather liked the designs that had a different color or pattern on Read More

A lovely red, pink, and gold multichrome magnetic nail polish paired with tiger paper cut stamping images for a Year of the Tiger zodiac mani.

I sadly ran out of steam when it came to posting a Year of the Tiger zodiac nail art on the exact day of Chinese New Year. On the other hand, the celebration typically lasts 15 days so I think I’m still within relevance. Nail art products used Base Polish: Read More

A plum-colored nail art celebrating Carnival season in Italy with golden strings of beads and many different masks.

Here we are: my last catchup post from the move. The #AZ prompt this time was ‘I’ is for Italy. I thought about going with food since I definitely had the stamping plates for it, but I had already painted food with the France prompt. I also pretty much never Read More

Orange and white bloody french tip drip nail art on a glow in the dark base with a bloody brain stamping decal.

Brain Bleeds

I’m back with another catchup post; this time for the #HalloweenForeverCollab, which I kept up with until it was moving time. It somewhat made up for missing October/Halloween last year so I’m definitely going to try and keep up with the prompts this year. Meanwhile this was August 2021’s prompt Read More
