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

February 14, 2022 Lisa 0

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

A plum flakie filled polish with earth-loving stamping images on top and a surprise nuclear explosion blowing up the planet. Oops!

Oops! Earth

July 28, 2021 Lisa 1

I very much believe that we would all be in a better place if we considered ourselves caretakers of the planet instead of its rulers. So many of the things we do that end up causing us harm (like higher cancer rates in certain areas) wouldn’t be possible if we Read More

A stained glass butterfly nail art with an iridescent flakie topper and watercolor paint to fill in the butterfly decals.

Stained Glass Butterflies

June 17, 2021 Lisa 2

Today is this blog’s fifth anniversary. So it’s kind of ironic that I have been very distracted from it and don’t feel much like posting currently. Some of it is that I bought some roller skates and not only busted off a nail already (luckily on my cindy hand) but Read More

Autumn-esque nail art of yellow, orange, and brown sunflower stamping decals on an olive green speckled nail polish base.

I’d intended to paint more mermaid nail art this weekend, but relaxation got in the way. 🤣 Instead, the first thing I managed to paint this week is sunflowers. I feel like I’m already channeling fall with this sunflower nail art, but the time for sharing it is now. It Read More

Mexico-related nail stickers (hot peppers, sombreros, maracas, and a cactus) with the word "fiesta" decorating a bright mustard crelly with iridescent flakes to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

May 5, 2021 Lisa 0

While the original holiday was celebrated over a military victory in Mexico, it has come to be associated with celebrating Mexican-American culture in the states for over a hundred years. I doubt there will be many parties or festivals due to the pandemic, so we’ll probably all just focus on Read More

A neon yellow crelly and black texture polish manicure with negative space black dandelions stamped on top. Glows in the dark.

Dandelion Glow

While I couldn’t complete all the prompts for @glamnailschallenge, I did want to knock out the last one: dandelions. See, Beauty BigBang has a great stamping plate with an entire row of full-nail negative space images and one of them is dandelions. I thought this would pair perfectly with the Read More
