Halloween Owls

November 2, 2022 Lisa 0

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 kawaii Halloween / devil nail art with a neon rainbow gradient background stamp and plump demon stamping decal with green eyes.

The Devil is Neon

July 1, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s been a while since I had true neon polishes to stamp with since my Mundo de Unas bottles got streaky. So I purchased a neon set from Maniology in May. And, ugh, the timing is not great because this is a very heavy Maniology post shortly after they gave Read More

A glitzy Sleeping Beauty nail art with stamping decals of a castle buried in thorns, thorns, lady knight, and the princess (aurora).

Witch of Slumber

July 1, 2022 Lisa 1

It’s been a while since I painted a new mani for my Witches of ‘S’ series, but it feels like a good time to paint nail art of women with power(s). Today’s design is also my make-up mani for ‘K’ is for Kingdom. Because of this, I decided to highlight Read More

Cinco de Mayo nail art w/a Halloween twist using Sinful Colors' "Taco Tuesday" + stamping decals of partying skeletons and Mexican textiles.

(Halloween) Cinco de Mayo

April 27, 2022 Lisa 0

The @halloweenForeverCollab strikes again with an awesome prompt to bring Halloween to every month. and this time we painted for Cinco de Mayo. It was a bit of a challenge to find something in my collection that worked and wasn’t straight sugar skulls, but I think this works. And I’m Read More

Treasure Map

Possibly today’s nail art look will make up for missing Talk Like a Pirate Day last year. It’s always a little frustrating when I miss a holiday that I want to cover, but selling my home so we could move took precedence. This year, though, you should be able to Read More

A holiday mashup nail design for Halloween and Easter with a pink/yellow thermal polish and zombie/monster rabbit stamping decals.

Easter-ween

I’ve really been enjoying the Instagram prompts from @inkednailzartchallenge. They’re just that little bit edgy and alt-culture for me. I hit a few prompts in March and I’m going to get them all this month if I can. They started off April with a bang by coming up with an Read More

A sunset beach-themed nail art with nail stamps of palm trees, seagulls, and skeletons. The best of tropical nightmares.

Bones at the Beach

August 3, 2021 Lisa 3

I certainly meant to post this last week, but my brain has entered a fugue state which I mostly blame on the pandemic. One family member, who was vaccinated, got Covid and is still in pretty bad shape, though not so bad that they are in the hospital. I’ve started Read More

A scattered holographic mustard nail art design with tattoo-like skulls, florals, and rib cage stamping decals.

Holo-ween Skulls and Florals

January 26, 2021 Lisa 2

I’m really happy to say that I’ve managed to keep up with the #HalloweenForeverCollab since November of last year. It’s only three months, but I think that’s my longest run so far. I even turned this one in at the start of the month instead of frantically trying to paint Read More

Sugar skull nail art for the Day of the Dead on black jelly teal glitter fake nails with freehand painted cat and fish sugar skulls and flowers.

Sugar Skull Cat

December 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’ve been wanting to paint a sugar skull cat and accompanying fish for at least two years. In fact, the false nails I used for this mani have been sporting their black jelly base since 2019’s Day of the Dead. I am good at intimidating myself out of freehand painting. Read More

Bright celery green nail art with a skull and crossed swords stamped on top.

Skull and Swords

October 17, 2020 Lisa 2

It feels a little lame to say this, but I had to color in the stamping decal of the skull twice because my brain registered the sword tips as horns on the skull so I used the wrong color on them. Woops! Anyway, this nail art falls into a general Read More
