Snowman nail art with cute snowmen playing around (like juggling) and preparing for a trip to Hawaii on a bold yellow glittery background.

Don’t Eat Yellow Snow(men)

Today’s look features snowmen on a yellow thermal background. So while I normally would have thought about adding banks of snow for them to exist in, I decided to just lean into the whole yellow thing with the post title. As happy as these snowmen look in their dubiously yellow Read More

A Halloween-esque Christmas mani w/spooky pastel stockings hung up against pine boughs + bone reindeer on a red to clear thermal w/flakies.

It’s Christmas Time

I have been posting a lot and kinda crashed a little, but there’s more Christmas nail art to post so it’s time to dust myself off and share today’s look: a nod to my favorite Christmas movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. I don’t have a Christmas tradition that I perform Read More

Here’s something that should have been posted clear back at the beginning of November (but at least I only have one last catch-up post left!). Today’s look features an orange and purple thermal polish that I wasn’t sure I would love until I tried it and now we’re married. LOL Read More

Sometimes I think about all the times I count a stamping plate as “used”, when I didn’t use my favorite image on it. The one that made me hit “add to cart”. It definitely makes my stamping plate usage spreadsheet look worse. LOL But with today’s foxy look, I’m hitting Read More

Krampus nail art on a red/green thermal polish with circles of plaid pattern and Halloween-esque things and rejection of jollyness.

I really wanted to paint some Krampus nail art last year. I had two Hit the Bottle Bah Humbug stamping plates and I was ready. Sadly, I didn’t have the capacity and posted maybe once that month. So I was extra happy to paint today’s look. And it also included Read More

Happy Thanksgiving nails with turkey and turkey feather stamping decals on a yellow/orange/brown tri-thermal gel with a flakie topper on top.

Turkeys Wanted

Happy Thanksgiving! Today’s look has taken a while to reach you. I painted it clear back in 2020 after Thanksgiving. So I told myself I would share it next year and never even got around to editing to photos. To continue the tradition, I meant to post it a day Read More

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 space cat nail art with a cat drinking planet milk + UFO abducting a cat on a pink to white thermal with pink/purple/blue glitter.

Cats Conquer Space 3.0

July 6, 2022 Lisa 1

I seem to have a thing for cats in space and I have been led there happily by stamping plate designers. Along with the stamping plates from the June ManixMe box, we already had Born Pretty’s Outer Space XL 1 & 2, Creative Shop 191, Moyou London’s Crazy Cat Lady Read More

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

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

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
