Sharon’s Feathers

November 9, 2017 Lisa 0

Did you think I was done posting nail art today? Oh, you are mistaken because it is @sharnailstar’s birthday and @dianavnisselroy organized a birthday collage for her. The theme was to do a greyscale version of one of Sharon’s nail art designs. I searched around for something that spoke to 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

Just as I was getting into nail art sticking feathers onto your nails was starting to be a trend (as far as I can tell). I never did it. So I thought what could be more delicate and fall-like than pheasant feathers which I already have? So I stuck these Read More

December 2, 2016 Lisa 4

I’ve been reading the comic Questionable Content for several years now. I love his crazy characters (of all sizes), references to an indie music scene I am no part of, and incorporation of AIs into daily life. Back when the phrase ‘YOLO’ (You Only Live Once) was at its peak Read More

Steampunk Fashion

I usually plan these challenges out way ahead of time so ideas for my subject can percolate in the back of my brain for a while, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the topic of fashion. Initially I was going to keep it simple with Read More

Nail Polish Society started a weekly alphabet challenge for nail artists several weeks back. I have actually been participating from the start, but laziness kept me from setting up a blog and posting them so I could join in on the InLinkz. Tonight I have conquered laziness! But I should be going to Read More
