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

Birdy Blues

June 2, 2017 Lisa 2

Okay, so this has nothing to do with blues as a music genre, but I did use the color blue in the mani and it’s for Nail Crazies Unite’s music-themed challenge. I’m also celebrating getting my greed talons into all of the polishes in Sinful Color’s Stoned Crystal Shimmer Collection. Read More

Golden for Office - Hermit Werds - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Work Appropriate

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

Floral Smoosh

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

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

Pastel Christmas - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Pastel Christmas

December 23, 2016 Lisa 2

The challenge was pretty simple and so I decided to keep it simple and use patterns that reminded me of Christmas wrapping paper. I dug through my nail plates and found a few Christmas-specific patterns and a few that fit given the right colors and surroundings. In contrast to my Read More

Still trying to catch up with the 31 Day challenge even though my energy levels have been really low.

Enter the water decal… Base Colors: Sinful Color’s “Whiteboard” Water Decals: Chinese Opera The Read More
