Airship Explorers

August 9, 2017 Lisa 2

Sir Ariana Cormorant gestured for the standby signal flags to be run up. The island was inhabited. The bright red and orange coloring of the mermaid made that clear enough. She was the obvious lookout considering everything about her had been engineered. Ariana’s eyes narrowed as she swept her spy Read More

Amber Waves of Grain

July 21, 2017 Lisa 2

The prompt from #26greatnailartideas was Sunshine. So of course I wanted to do a dark nail art with a grain pattern because I like to picture the crops growing up, nourished by the sun and finally being baked dry by it. A kinder, gentler version of a forest fire finally Read More

Origami from June - Hermit Werds - #origamidaily2007

#origamidaily2007 – End of June

July 4, 2017 Lisa 2

June was supposed to be origami butterflies and utter happiness. I wasn’t as happy with the results as I wanted to be, sadly. I was hoping to find a butterfly that would translate well on a really small scale and I’m just not feeling it with any of these. I Read More

There were a number of different interpretations in the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts group on the subject of “Mixed Tape Mani”. Some of us thought it means using different tape techniques and some interpreted it as the musical kind of mix tape. Some even took on both themes! I decided to Read More

Tourist Season and blog improvements

February 26, 2017 Lisa 4

This was for the 30 Days of Colour Challenge: Bright. Naturally I tapped into my Sinful Color’s Neon Collection nail polishes, but since I didn’t paint my nails white first they are not quite as bright as they could have been. Considering how hard of a time my phone camera Read More

I Love Bugs - Hermit Werds

I 💕 Bugs

February 12, 2017 Lisa 2
