Camp More – BP Review (gel polish, magnets)

January 13, 2020 Lisa 0

[press sample] The last product(s) that Born Pretty sent to me was a package of products meant to support reviewing a new magnetic gel polish: BP-MSS04 Boundless Galaxy. What I didn’t realize at the time was how grateful I should be that they included the magnet. The little $1 paddle Read More

A Little Mermay

May 31, 2019 Lisa 0

This has literally been the first time I painted my nails in over a month but I really didn’t want to miss Mermay so I made time for painting today. Sorry that I’ve had to focus on other things lately. I wish I could say they were things for the Read More

Crelly-corn (and Poot-asus)

February 20, 2019 Lisa 0

Today I have Unicorns for #GlamNailsChallengeFeb. This is possibly the first time I’ve posted a prompt on time for this challenge in many, many weeks. Ah, well. That’s what getting sick does to you. I almost turned this in for #WhenColoursCollide’s yellow/orange/red theme, but then I realized there were gold Read More

Witch of Spirits

Call me a dork if you will, but I have so many Things I want to paint for Halloween. Oh, the lists I have made trying to plan things out so I wouldn’t miss a big want-to-do for a small one. I have lists for polishes, stamping plates, and color Read More

Simple Succulents

March 2, 2018 Lisa 0

I’ve been wanting to use my succulent stamping plates for a while but before I knew it, it was all cold out and it was so much easier to keep putting it off with fall and winter designs. I am sure I do not have these out of my system Read More

Hobbies of the Red Queen

February 26, 2018 Lisa 4

#NailCraziesUnite’s latest prompt is Red and Black Hobbies. I was rather stumped on this one since I didn’t feel like doing more nail art on reading and that’s my second major hobby. So… It was time to defeat my tendency to get mentally stuck on what I don’t want to Read More

Christmas Cards - Hermit Werds - winter-themed mailing stamps and envelopes on a sage green crelly

Christmas Cards

December 15, 2017 Lisa 2

I looked at Harunouta’s L031 Christmas-themed stamping plate last year and gave it a pass, but this year I decided I wanted it after all because the stamp images are so darn cute. Naturally, that meant I had to use them asap even though they are not Christmas-specific and I Read More

Cemetery Roses - Hermit Werds - cemetery with skull and rose vines gone wild

Cemetery Roses

October 4, 2017 Lisa 0

I usually avoid mixing freehand with stamping because the line quality typically ends up being too different. I think I got away with it this time. Maybe. This nail art comes from the blend of #clairestelle8challenge’s Cemetery prompt and #firedazedoct2017’s Skulls and Roses prompt. Huh. Maybe I should have pluralled Read More

P is for Pair - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘P’ is for Pair

August 19, 2016 Lisa 4

I threw around a lot of ideas for the letter ‘p’, everything from penguins to pencils. In the end, I went with word play and decided to do pairs of things starting with ‘p’ with the exception of a single pear. This one took a while. I had a lot Read More
