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

Mermicorn

June 11, 2021 Lisa 2

I’ve had this nail art painted for nearly a week, but I just haven’t felt like writing lately. Still, it’s more than time to share this nail art that helped me transition from a month of mermaids to a month of unicorns (Junicorn). I bring you a mermicorn. Okay, I Read More

Olive Spring

February 26, 2021 Lisa 2

I have been sitting on this nail art for over a year just waiting for the perfect time to post it. And as we’re just heading into spring nail art season (which can be quite different from what’s going on outside depending on where you live), now felt good. It Read More

Medium green nail art full of windy patterns and a bold winter lion slowly turning into a gentle white lamb.

Lion of March

March 13, 2020 Lisa 4

March was supposed to come in like a lion (winter) and out like a lamb (spring). Instead it came in like a lamb and I gratefully hung my wool coat in the closet and swapped to lighter fare. I’m even shedding my cardigan by mid-day! Maybe that’s why it’s taken Read More

Happy Chinese New Year, friends! Today’s nail art has taken the place of Rooster Revisted as my favorite Chinese zodiac nail art design. I hope you like it as much as I do. 😘 It started with this deep red holographic/flakie indie polish from Vapid Lacquer that, I’m sorry to Read More

Black Cat Talk - Hermit Werds - smoosh marble nail art with purple and mint polishes with black cat stamping on top

Black Cat Talks

March 8, 2019 Lisa 0

Oh boy do those cats talk. Especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. Then they go yodeling around the house as if they are looking for you even though you are where you always are…in bed trying to sleep through their insanity. Now I’m the lucky one because I Read More

Winter’s Love – BBB Review (sequin & stamping plate)

February 12, 2019 Lisa 1

[press sample] Have you been missing the glow in the dark stuff? I have. Why can I never get around to painting them more?! Well today’s glow did not even require painting because I used Beauty BigBang’s glow in the dark heart sequins (J4196-1C) along with the last stamping plate Read More

[press sample] All aboard the color train! LOL We’re back to reviewing stamping plates today with Beauty BigBang’s XL-030 and XL-033. The former has several cat images (all of which I loved and used immediately) and the later has this amazing full-nail train stamp that I separated to create a Read More

Holiday Glitz

December 2, 2018 Lisa 0

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

Snow White’s Tomb

October 28, 2018 Lisa 1

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
