Classically Halloween and The Changing Leaves

I have two manicures to share with you today and there will be another post tonight. To start, I thought it would be nice to paint my poor cindy hand again. It still weirds me out that my nails are so short and I haven’t been taking care of them Read More

Dragon Quilt and Vampiric Snacking

September 29, 2017 Lisa 0

Through lots and lots of swatches, stamping, and trimming, we have achieved a dragon quilt which covers both the #AZNailArtChallenge (quilt), the last prompt from #FireDazedChallengeSept (dragon), and #26GreatNailArtIdeas (Your Signature Style). What do I consider to be my signature style? Too much of too much. LOL I painted these Read More

Originally, I was planning on an orange mani for #31DC2017 (Inspired by a Color). But the greatest number of untried polishes I have seems to be in the pink/red family so I picked Colores de Carol’s “Cupid’s Vacation” for my inspiration. It’s this gorgeous pink holographic polish with a few Read More

Sadly, not He-man nails, although that is an idea to be explored later… 😉 This particular combination brought to you by the Facebook group #WhenColoursCollide‘s Grey and Gold (only) prompt. I decided to finally play a little with my Sinful Colors Hypnotic Transforming Top Coat. It is a very fun Read More

The other nail art prompt that I wanted to cover yesterday was Water for #StampingMasterAugust. Now Jaws had water in it, but it was all painted freehand so it didn’t really fit the name of the group. Plus I had this beautiful stamping plate from CICI & SISI with an Read More

Simply Sugar - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8challenge (ice cream/Popsicle)

Simply Sugar

July 3, 2017 Lisa 2

The prompt for #clairestelle8challenge was ice cream/Popsicle and, lucky me, my order for Bundle Monster’s Hangloose collection arrived Saturday. It has a plate with lots of frozen treats (BM-S408). Felt like a victory to be able to use it right away. I kept it simple since the weekend was full Read More

Sometimes it happens. You finish your nail art and after staring at it for a day, the thing that’s missing eats at you until you have to do something about it. And my pinkie and ring finger were too plain. I had to fix it. Luckily there were a few Read More

Eternal Hobbies - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8june (hobbies)

Eternal Hobbies (kitties!)

June 27, 2017 Lisa 4

So the second prompt of the month for #clairestelle8june is your job/hobby. Job was possible but obnoxious to nail art so I went with hobby. There are three hobbies that I have been listing out to people for most of my life: sleep, kitties, and reading. “Kitties” usually makes me Read More

The Little Mermaid - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8challenge (book/movie)

The Little Mermaid

June 24, 2017 Lisa 2

Today’s #clairestellechallenge theme is book/movie. I decided to do The Little Mermaid, but I wasn’t interested in following the color scheme from the Disney movie even though I gave it a direct nod on my thumb. The Little Mermaid holds a special place in my heart. It’s the first animated Read More

Monkey Business - Hermit Werds - #aznailartchallenge (jungle)

Monkey Business

June 22, 2017 Lisa 2

#aznailartchallenge on Instagram is on J for Jungle and #30daysofcolour has a holo theme this week. While poison dart frogs would have also made me happy, they’d be harder to do with the holo polishes I have so I decided to go with monkeys instead. Also, it allowed me to Read More
