Wanna Pizza This?

July 10, 2017 Lisa 4

#nailartchallengejuly had the prompt “Stamping” for today. That’s pretty low hanging fruit and I’ve been wanting to do pizza nails for a while. I also wanted to use Sinful Color’s Stoned Crystal Shimmer “Namaste the Night”. So I picked a few accompanying colors and started stamping. I tried to limit Read More

Coral Cruising

The trouble with becoming more familiar with Instagram is that it opens up a whole world of people running nail art challenges.

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).

Black & White Valentines

February 5, 2017 Lisa 6

I wanted to stick absolutely to a black and white color scheme so the challenge for me was to play with the finish and figure out what stamps I wanted to use. I finally settled for a water marble-y flower with some heart shapes swirled into it and a bunch Read More

Black and White - 31 Day Challenge Nail Art - Hermit Werds

B&W

October 5, 2016 Lisa 0

I was not happy with this, but at the pace I have to set to finish before the inlinkz close, I decided I wasn’t going to do a do-over. I used masking tape instead nail vinyls or nail art striping tape and I cut the strips too thick. Also, the Read More
