Fly, Hot Air Balloon

April 19, 2019 Lisa 0

I’ve been trying to find the right design to use for this gorgeous orange holographic polish (Shinespark Polish’s “Poppy Topaz“) and somehow it kept not happening for me. I thought for sure I’d get to it in October, but it didn’t fit any of the Halloween designs I wanted most Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 7 (Part 1)

April 18, 2019 Lisa 0

Well, I have some nail art to post, but the collage hasn’t been released yet so I guess you’ll have to settle for some ZIAs. I’ve finished a little over half of the extra exercises from Beckah Krahula’s One Zentangle a Day that I committed to after Week 6 and Read More

Watercolor Cactus

I’ve painted my nails with white gel polish again and it’s time for some of my favorite kind of nail art: watercolor! I painted this one for #AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘C’ is for Cactus prompt, but I missed the collage deadline by minutes because I kept adding more details with the watercolor. Read More

April Showers

Rainy day nail art in April is a must if you like to acknowledge the seasons in your designs. In fact, I need to stop waiting for the ground to be dry before mowing my lawn because it hasn’t happened in well over a week. I love the rain, though, Read More

Life’s a Beach

April 4, 2019 Lisa 0

It doesn’t even begin to feel tropical yet, but not all beaches are warm anyway. In fact, half of my beach experiences have been rather cold and windy (but still fun). Today it was Palm Trees for #ColoursWithinWomen so I turned to the Hangouts stamping plate set by Maniology. Amusingly, Read More

This post has been a stinker. I accidentally published it early and had to re-set its publish date to the end of March. But it still wasn’t ready when it posted again! Lesson learned. Next time just delete the old post and start a new one. :p Today we’re covering Read More

Daily Zentangle - Week 6 - Hermit Werds - Lisa's sixth week of progress; background is Enyshou tangleation, Rain, and Kathy's Dilemma tangleation

One Zentangle a Day – Week 6

March 27, 2019 Lisa 0

I thought I’d be talking about art supplies today, but the post was approaching 1.5K words and I hadn’t even started writing about the last week of drawings. And is it my last week? Because Krahula’s extra exercises leave plenty of room for more art-ing. I put together a list Read More

Happy Alien Abduction Day! The secret title to this nail design is “Date Night”. Mwahahahaaa I just loved the alien abduction stamping image the minute I saw it. And it only took me two years to use it! Yay!? Products Used For a design with only one nail that isn’t Read More

Ghost Crab of the Cosmos - Hermit Werds - deep blue nail art with crab and astrological Cancer symbol and ghostly white paint on top

Ghost Crab of the Cosmos

March 19, 2019 Lisa 0

Well, it was inevitable that I would start combining prompts for #GlamNailsChallenge since my nail art-ing time is getting swallowed up with drawing. But I think this turned out to be a great combination: Ghost and Astrology. I love the little crabs that symbolize Cancer so I used that along Read More
