Lacey Pink

November 9, 2017 Lisa 1

I decided it was time to use my last untried Zoya polish. So when #clairestelle8challenge came up with a lace prompt, I said “Let’s see how this works with a pond mani.” I think it worked well. I slathered on a layer of “Paloma”, stamped the netting pattern, more jelly, Read More

Elegant Peacock - Hermit Werds - blue and green metallic peacock stamping with black

Elegant Peacock and Neutrally Scientific

November 3, 2017 Lisa 2

I do love the coloring of a peacock. If I couldn’t choose rainbow as my favorite color, I’d probably have to pick peacock. It’s a testament to how much nail art I want to do that I have only labeled one other nail art as peacock, but it’s still a Read More

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

This black cat nail art is for #26GreatNailArtIdeas Halloween w/Negative Space. I was going to do something more complex, but then I asked myself, “Why am I making my life hard right now?” And the answer is that sometimes I think if I don’t struggle I’m not doing a good Read More

I have three different manicures to share today. I’ve already posted the first two to my Instagram but was too exhausted/busy to write about them more thoroughly. On the other hand, I de-stashed around twenty-five skirts from my closet. It…doesn’t even look like I made a dent. Clearly I’m going Read More

This is my first time participating in #manicollabs on Instagram. The prompt was Inspired by a Country You Would Like to Visit and I asked if it had to be a real country. They said ‘no’ so then I spent time thinking about a recognizable and cool land I would Read More

This is the last catch-up manicure hopefully. I still have to get today’s nail art on my nails and out, but hopefully I haven’t picked something that will take too long. So the 25th #31DC2017 prompt is Inspired by Fashion and I debated quite a bit on what to do. Read More

We’re at the fourth day of the #31DC2017 and so far my health is hanging in there. I’m hopeful about not falling behind. 🙂 Today I decided to feature one of my favorite kinds of plants: bonsai trees! I framed it with a round-ish frame in the hope of giving Read More

Right now I have two manicures to share. 🙂 To start, it’s fun to pun and since there are two different prompts for sunflowers this month that I plan to do, I decided to make one of them a pun. With the eclipse happening so recently, I thought it was Read More

August 20, 2017 Lisa 0

I’ve been wanting to do fawn patterned nails ever since I saw Lucy’s tutorial on YouTube. I had a Brown, Grey, Green prompt from When Colours Collide and a jungle prompt from #clairestelle8challenge. At first, I figured I could do a tropical bird stamping and fill it in with greys Read More
