Yin yang nail art w/a koi fish yin yang stamping decal on stiletto shaped false nails covered in red, blue, and green flakies.

Yin Yang Koi

June 24, 2022 Lisa 2

It’s always harder to come up with a good nail art prompt for the end of the alphabet, so the choice of yin yang felt pretty fair and approachable for any nail artist that wanted to participate in the AZ Challenge. I had several ideas that went from steampunk to Read More

A soft orange smoosh mani with cute bus and camera stamping decals with plants growing out of and around them.

Bus Ride to Somewhere

March 14, 2022 Lisa 0

Today’s look is brought about by more Instagram prompts: smoosh marble and bus. I knew I had a beautiful image of a bus on KADS’ Flower-16 so I decided to go with that. I followed it up with talk of travel because it really felt like a school trip kind Read More

A Valentine's Day nail art with rosegold lace stamping on a pink thermal jelly with reverse stamping decals saying "Call me! XOXO".

Call Me! XOXO

February 6, 2022 Lisa 0

And we’re back to the holidays with Valentine’s Day coming up. This one was a simple lace + something fun mani. I paired a “Call me! XOXO” stamping decal with more “XOXO”s and a mobile phone. Really in many ways my favorite part was the lace stamping image paired with Read More

A witchy Valentine's Day nail art w/stamping decals of a cute witch brewing up a love potion with lots of hearts on a lilac flakie polish.

Hocus Pocus

Once upon a time I painted a love potion-esque nail art. It was pre-blog and there was pink. I can even wave the stamping plate I used uselessly in the air. You can’t see it because this isn’t a video, but all the parts are there. Anyway, I sadly cannot Read More

Zombie nail art with cartoon zombie head stamping decals and on a mustard/orange/brown tri-thermal base with orange and gold glitters.

Zombie Days

April 28, 2021 Lisa 0

What is it like to be a zombie? I really like to get in their (fictional) heads and find out. Like…are they in a kind of fugue state until something triggers them into eat mode? Is there an end game? Most zombie-related entertainment seems to focus on the pure monster Read More

A blurple, blue, and grey with pink highlights fluid art nail design with a pink and silver bunny nail charm as accent.

Fluid Art Rabbit

March 25, 2021 Lisa 1

Easter is right around the corner and luckily enough you just need to stick a rabbit on something to make it Easter nail art. 😂 I wanted to paint something with a lot of gray since it’s the only color I haven’t really played with this month so this happened. Read More

Soft pink and grey nail art with handsome tiger suitor and heart pattern.

No Lion Hearts

February 19, 2020 Lisa 2

Today’s nail art was inspired by a song, but not a new one. Girl’s Generation (or SNSD) hasn’t put out a new song since 2017 and the song I thought of immediately when I saw the tiger image on Nicole Diary’s Fashion Trends ND-002 is from their 2015 album Lion Read More

Snowman Wonderland - Hermit Werds - blue thermal snowflake crelly with snowmen stamping decals on top, including a skating snowman

Snowman Wonderland

January 14, 2019 Lisa 1

This design was certainly a trial. I started the month with the illusion that I’d be following the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts. Nope! Okay…I thought I could combine the first two prompts of Snowman and Mittens and then follow the rest normally. I had two snowmen stamping images wearing mittens. Nope! My Read More

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

Bunnies in Black - Hermit Werds - neon shooting stars behind weird suited bunnies with a UFO overhead

Bunnies in Black

July 20, 2018 Lisa 0

Sometimes you just get a funny idea in your head and you have to do it. I had a stamping plate with these weird suited bunnies and they gave me a brain worm that I just couldn’t shake. I had to riff off of Men in Black with them. I’m Read More
