A mustard crelly with small purple and red glitters with chocolate Easter bunny stamping decals who have been munched on top.

Death of Chocolate

April 30, 2022 Lisa 0

Some day I really hope to have time to make a super fancy Candy Land mani, but today I only had time for some quick chocolate bunnies. Pretty sure these came from some kind of meme and I love it. I also decided to use one of my brown stamping Read More

A plum-colored nail art celebrating Carnival season in Italy with golden strings of beads and many different masks.

Carnival

January 29, 2022 Lisa 0

Here we are: my last catchup post from the move. The #AZ prompt this time was ‘I’ is for Italy. I thought about going with food since I definitely had the stamping plates for it, but I had already painted food with the France prompt. I also pretty much never Read More

Elegant bamboo forest nail art with stamping images of a lady wearing a kimono and a house built deep in a bamboo forest.

Bamboo Forest Retreat

August 4, 2021 Lisa 1

I’m trying a new (to me) challenge this month because I liked its prompts the best: #Sammys2021Challenge run by @my_nail_envy. Its first prompt was Forest and I really wanted to use this image of a tiny lady in a kimono holding a giant lotus leaf and framed by some bamboo. Read More

Nautical nail art in pink, black, and silver with lots of anchor stamping decals and a kiss of holographic nail polish.

Anchors Away

July 5, 2021 Lisa 2

Todays look is brought to you by prompts and whatever I have in my collection that fit them. 😆 My colors were pink, black, and silver from @WhenColoursCollide and my subject was Anchors from @GlamNailsChallenge. So that made this a nautical nail art from the start. When Colours Collide There Read More

A stained glass butterfly nail art with an iridescent flakie topper and watercolor paint to fill in the butterfly decals.

Stained Glass Butterflies

June 17, 2021 Lisa 2

Today is this blog’s fifth anniversary. So it’s kind of ironic that I have been very distracted from it and don’t feel much like posting currently. Some of it is that I bought some roller skates and not only busted off a nail already (luckily on my cindy hand) but Read More

A pink to gold multichrome with holographic nail art featuring Nintendo's Mario dodging multiple Bullet Bills.

Mario vs Bullet Bills

March 9, 2021 Lisa 1

So January’s Polished Gamers Box was Mario-themed and they started back up the tradition of having a group collage due by the end of the next month (because by then most people have gotten their loot). No one has put the collage together yet. But I’m to the point where Read More

A red to black gradient nail art with swirls of magic and a wicked, sexy witch casting a summoning stamped on top plus a haunted house.

Witch of Summoning

February 24, 2021 Lisa 3

Today’s look was brought to you by learning to stop before you ruin something. See, my initial plan was to have the vertical gradient and then stamp a whole landscape of haunted houses as a kind of French tip that then fades into the black. But then I thought I Read More

The Fanciest Paisley + Welcome to Hell

June 8, 2018 Lisa 0

I usually stick to one nail art:one blog poast, but things are getting backed up so we’re going to have a few two-fer posts in the next week. Today we’re talking about my nail art for #GlamNailsChallenge’s Paisley (The Fanciest Paisley) and #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ Dry or Drag Marble (Welcome to Hell). Read More

Black Coffee - Hermit Werds - coffee themed black jelly nails covered with black stamping and masked off areas filled with black

Black Coffee

March 30, 2018 Lisa 0

We can’t let the month end without a coffee mani. In fact, this is my eighth nail art dedicated to the delicious drink. I only have four to go before I can declare I have a year’s worth of coffee manis and believe when I say that has been my Read More

Embrace the Night - Hermit Werds - harlequin pattern made with rhombus sequins and a strange golden dancer wearing a mask

Embrace the Night – An Exploration in Glitter Placement

February 28, 2018 Lisa 0

This mani was for #TheInspirationChallenge on Instagram. It gave me an excuse to play with some rhombus sequins that I had just purchased to make a harlequin pattern. I’d also like to pretend these are my Mardi Gras nails. Sequins are so shiny and wonderful, but one thing I’ve learned Read More
