Orchid Damask

January 24, 2018 Lisa 0

Sometimes I forget that different challenges have different turnaround times for releasing the collage of participants. And since you’re not supposed to post your nail art until it’s done, well, this was a bad combination of challenges. I combined #TheInspirationChallenge with #26GreatNailArtIdeas (3D Embellished). This is probably the first and Read More

Lawns Are Materialism

January 23, 2018 Lisa 0

I’ve been really bad about getting anything done lately. I did manage to cut my own hair for the first time last night. I think I need to take off a bit more on the top, but so far it’s actually one of the better haircuts I’ve had. Mind you, Read More

The Brilliant Trees

The collage for #NailAddictsCollab posted yesterday and I was completely unprepared! I need to get caught up on (mostly) writing my blog posts when I finish everything else. This was a fun one and, for once, easy. The prompt was Untried, Unused, Unloved and you were supposed to get in Read More

In a Garden, Darkly

January 11, 2018 Lisa 0

I have been part of the nail artist community on Instagram for about a year now and I recently found out one of the ways I’ve left myself out of the loop. Stories are apparently being used to announce that someone is putting a birthday collage together. Then anyone who Read More

#OrigamiDaily2007 – The Eight Best Models

January 11, 2018 Lisa 0

You might be aware of my goal to finish off an old origami daily calendar from 2007 in 2017. I started off the year with daily origami posts to Instagram. And then I started posting my nail art more and more… Long story short, since origami was not an art Read More

I See Plaid People

January 8, 2018 Lisa 0

Is it lazy to title your mani after one of the polishes you used in it if it fits? I mean, Bee’s Knees Lacquer’s “I See Plaid People” is the main polish for this mani and the prompt from #NailArtChallengeJan is plaid. Well, I guess it’s a lazy day either Read More

Forever Craned

January 7, 2018 Lisa 0

I wanted so badly to do justice to this polish, but I apparently have great circulation and that makes photographing a thermal polish hard even during the winter. I am just going to have to suck it up and have a bowl of ice water on standby next time. Shinespark Read More
