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

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

I’m back with the third installment from the Zodiac Collection. We are in the time of Aries, a firey member of the zodiac that is also associated with goats and the color red. I went with a flame motif and used Maniology’s ManixMe zodiac stamping plates to guide this look Read More

Late post today because I adult-ed and did some yardwork. I’m in the process of ripping out some of the invasive (but lovely) ivy growing in my yard. It’s super fun because I’m in terrible shape right now. 😆Today is the start of the Pisces astrological sign and so the Read More

One Black Base – Four Looks

August 24, 2017 Lisa 2

I bought two gel “colors” and since we’ve already done a bunch of white nail art, I thought it was time to do some nail art on a black reusable base. Sadly, these aren’t very thematic since we’re at the end of the month and I’m just scrambling to finish Read More
