Rainbow Nature – Blue

September 5, 2017 Lisa 2

We’re at the fifth day of the #31DC2017 and I’m still hopeful about keeping up. Lot of blog posts though, so I am sorry if this is brief. I know a lily pond is probably a pretty typical nature subject–I mean, I’ve done a lily pond manicure before and it’s Read More

All the Sushi(s)

August 6, 2017 Lisa 0

If someone were to say Travel Dreams to me, one of the my first thoughts would be to fly to Japan and eat all of the sushi. I’d visit the gardens and eat lots of other foods, but I’m pretty sure my first task would be to fill my belly Read More

#origamidaily2007 – July

July 30, 2017 Lisa 2

I was looking forward to folding the frogs, but I didn’t think I would enjoy this month as much as I did. The fish were a lot of fun and I learned how to swivel pleat (see the fan tail fish’s instructions). The origami I was a little worried about Read More

View of the Beach

July 7, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was beach or animal silhouettes. My brain immediately turned ‘or’ into ‘and’. Challenge accepted. I took my stampings and carefully removed most of the details to get a very basic shape. Then I colored on the outside instead of the inside Read More

Cats, Cats, Cats

February 21, 2017 Lisa 2

I am definitely a cat person if the image at the top of this blog hasn’t tipped you off. Harunouta has some great nail stamping plates for pet lovers and that is what inspired today’s nail art. The only thing I did out of my usual was remove the fish Read More

Gone Fishing - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Gone Fishing

February 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I wore the gradient on my nails for two days because I was too tired to finish this manicure. Pretty pitiful considering how simple this is. It’s nail art that I wanted to do the minute I got my Harunouta plate with the fish images. The way they are clumped Read More
