Santa’s Coming to Town

I updated to WordPress 5.0 just now and it broke all of the nail polish and stamping plate links. I am working on fixing them, just be aware they aren’t working right now. Also, the Gutenberg editor is dog barf to write posts with. I’ll give it a little more Read More

I’ve seen a few red/green thermal polishes come out this year, but I think Shinespark Polish came out with the first one for Christmas when she released it in 2017. I couldn’t resist buying it and I’m so glad I did. This is the first design I painted with it, Read More

November 30, 2018 Lisa 0

My final review for the latest batch of what Maggie from Beauty BigBang sent to me is Beauty BigBang’s XL-011 stamping plate. Now I was originally supposed to review this stamping plate along with the batch I painted in October, but there was a problem with one of the images. Read More

Happy Birthday, Sharon!

Today I have a recreation of one of Sharon Medran’s (@sharnailstar) beautiful nail art designs because it’s her birthday! Woo! Sharon never uses advanced/reverse stamping so it’s always a learning experience seeing how she layers stamping images to get complex looks. Last year I recreated a feather look of hers Read More

We Voted

Whether you like the results of yesterday’s voting or not, I hope you voted. I know I will never take a midterm election lightly again. Stupid younger self. Since my state didn’t include a sticker in their absentee ballots, I painted this for myself on myself… Re-usable white gel base Read More

Neon Web

I didn’t put it on my list, but I kinda wanted to paint something Halloween-ish with a neon yellow background so I combined it with #AZNailArtChallenge’s delightful ‘S’ is for Spider prompt. I used it as a clearing house to finish up a bunch of little goals and the result Read More

I am ending the month of October on a rather bloody note. Or am I? There’s still daylight left, so I could potentially paint one last design. heh I’ve returned to my Witches of S series with the Witch of Slaughter. You may notice she doesn’t have any blood on Read More

The only thing cuter than a mummy owl would be a mummy cat. I’m sure there’s a stamping plate with one out there somewhere. Moyou London has one I think… Anyway, I have the owl from Born Pretty’s Halloween L004. It’s super cute so I decided to make it the Read More

Tomb of Snow White - Hermit Werds - horror-themed Snow White nails featuring skeleton of Snow White and her funeral flowers on a grey and black nail art with rose to green to gold flakies and shimmer

Snow White’s Tomb

Sometimes the prince never comes. Poor Snow White. I painted this for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s month-long Halloween theme, #GlamNailsChallengeOct’s Skull, and #LiganailistaChallenge’s Tomb vs Castle prompt. I kinda included both prompts for the latter since we have a castle and Snow White is surely in her tomb. I am so pleased with Read More

Creepy Carnival - Hermit Werds - carousel monster stamping decals to ride when visiting the creepy carnival on a shimmery purple background

Creepy Carnival

October 23, 2018 Lisa 0

I bought Moyou London’s Gothic Collection 01 stamping plate because I loved the little carousel critters so much. It felt very fitting to use them in a design for @clairestelle8challenge’s Creepy Carnival prompt. I love carousels, especially the creepy looking ones. And they can be found at carnivals sometimes!
