Lady of the Bees

September 21, 2017 Lisa 2

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

Black Heart-ed Floral

September 20, 2017 Lisa 2

This nail art is over a month old. I have been saving it for a day when I needed something to fill the slot but then I did so many challenges last month that I never used it. Now is the prefect time since I need a water marble for Read More

Floral Fairies

September 14, 2017 Lisa 2

For as long as I can remember, I have seen artists drawing fairies with clothing made from flowers. So when #nailsunitedseptchallenge had a prompt for Fairy coinciding directly with the flower prompt for #31DC2017, well, there was only one thing to do. So I did it on a beautiful thermal Read More

Polka Dot Party

September 11, 2017 Lisa 0

I thought through some of my plans poorly so today’s nail art ended up having to be a water decal. I did, however, use nail polish to trace around it. It’s a look I’ve always admired on others and it probably took more time for me to do everything than Read More

I haven’t had a new blog post in two days, but believe me I’ve been keeping busy (or you can check my instagram account if you need proof). I was watching one of Jessface90‘s polish swatching videos and she made a remark about her white gel base starting to peel Read More

Nude and Neon

May 14, 2017 Lisa 0

This nail art was for the When Colours Collide challenge group. The limitation to this was that you could only use two neon colors along with your nude color. I decided to go with neon green and neon yellow and that I wanted some negative space too. Then I decided Read More

Origami from April - Hermit Werds

#origamidaily2007 – End of April

May 2, 2017 Lisa 2

So I decided to fold these origami groupings once a month or so instead of trying to get it all done at once. I have enough to last until the end of the year. I definitely fell behind in my intentions, but no one called me on so I guess Read More

Floral Smoosh

April 20, 2017 Lisa 2

Pastel Floral is the theme for this Nail Crazies Unite challenge. I decided to try something I haven’t done before: smooshing polish on my nails with my stamper. I am not sure which person in the nail art community did this first, but I doubt it would ever have occurred Read More
