Pink and Silver

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

Golden for Office

April 28, 2017 Lisa 4

The theme for this 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Workplace Appropriate. I’ve generally worked places that were casual enough that some people were in jeans and t-shirts every day, but I had an idea for a simple-ish nail art that took advantage of sheer polish so I thought that Read More

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

March 1, 2017 Lisa 6

The theme for the 30 Day Challenge was blue and since I’d won two gorgeous nail plates from a drawing by Creative Shop I decided to use one of them. Plate 41 has a denim pattern and a flower pattern that looks like embroidery to me. So I combined them Read More
