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

Blue Floral

February 17, 2017 Lisa 4

I had three different blue floral water decals and I really wanted to use one of them for this challenge (a picture of all three is at the bottom of this post). The first one is my favorite, but I wanted to do more with it than just stick it Read More

February Sparkles - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

February Sparkles

February 7, 2017 Lisa 2

Glitter or rhinestones would have fit into the theme of ‘Sparkle’ better, but I needed something simple and I had beautiful holo polishes and a new Uber Chic nail plate that needed love. I knew Color Club’s “Cosmic Fate” would stamp well, but I am happy to say that ILNP’s Read More

Still trying to catch up with the 31 Day challenge even though my energy levels have been really low. I decided that few things could be more artwork-y than a piece of someone else’s finished artwork. Enter the water decal… Base Colors: Sinful Color’s “Whiteboard” Water Decals: Chinese Opera The Read More

Ugh! I just haven’t had much time or energy to paint my nails lately since I’ve been focusing on getting a few craft projects out before Christmas arrives. Hopefully I will be able to write a post about that soon. So many intentions. So little time to follow through. With Read More

Halloween is too close and instead of finishing the manicure for Inspired by Artwork and not getting to enjoy it long enough, I’ve decided to skip it for now and do a quick manicure for Inspired by a Flag. I kept it simple with a white background for all and Read More

So much of this challenge for me has been to get the manicure done as quickly as possible. (Mind you, I ruined that by using the base color I did. “Fresh Linen” is one of the crappiest formulas out of the Revlon Parfumerie line, but it smells soooo good!) So Read More

I bought some new Sinful Colors polishes before I left on vacation and the Iridescent Color collection is amazing. So I had to use one for the gradient manicure. “Shell Out” has a green shimmer that doesn’t just show up in the bottle. In fact, when used in a sponge Read More

Metallic

October 3, 2016 Lisa 0

I really wanted to have super pretty nails while I was at the steampunk convention. However, since we weren’t going straight to the con, I knew my nails would be battered and unpretty before I got there. The original plan was to buy press-on nails and see how well they Read More

Green - 31 Day Challenge - Hermit Werds

Green

September 10, 2016 Lisa 2

So immediately after posting I’d be trying to do this challenge, I ran into the reality of why I generally only paint my nails twice a week. I just have too many other hobbies and I’m not willing to give them up. Then I managed to not paint my nails Read More
