I try to at least paint two designs for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s month long themes, but this month was especially challenging because…pink/blue instead of food. You guys know how I feel about food. 😒 So I was sad and I wasn’t sure what to paint. I managed to get out a Pink Read More

DC Heroes – Aquaman

I just finished watching Justice League and–having watched Batman vs Superman previously–it was a little weird that Batman became the comic relief when Flash was also the comic relief and Affleck’s Batman was super dark originally. I wish they’d be more consistent with their character development. I did enjoy the Read More

I tried a new Instagram challenge this time: @ColoursWithinWomen. When this group goes with a color theme, they want to see three nails of only that color and an accent nail. (No rules for thumbs though. Woo!) I have a lot of neglected brown polishes that for some reason I’m Read More

Women's Equality Day - Hermit Werds - pink nail art with stamped messages women often hear that hold them back

Women’s Equality Day

I’d say Happy Women’s Equality Day, but, while the 19th amendment has given women the right to vote (and we apparently exercise it more than men), we are still missing a law explicitly prohibiting gender-based discrimination. Not acceptable. We only need one more state to make the Equal Rights Amendment Read More

Marie Kondo’s method of decluttering doesn’t really work for me because I have too many things that spark joy. LOL I just went through a clothing purge in March/April and yet here I’ve had to go through it again. I got rid of half my wardrobe this time and you Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – BeautyBigBang XL-001 stamping plate

August 3, 2018 Lisa 0

[Press Sample] It’s International Watermelon Day and Tena (@nailsit) put together a collaboration to celebrate. I thought it was the perfect time to review Beauty BigBangs’ XL-001 stamping plate since 2 of the 14 images have watermelons on them. If you’ve been reading me for long, you would know my Read More

Paisley Whale

Today I bring you paisley and whales! Why? Well, #NailsWithIgFriends’ July host, Caroline (@gidwaney), picked Paisley and I just randomly added whales because it felt like a good idea at the time. This is the second time I’ve combined a large oceanic animal with a common fabric type/pattern in less Read More
