Cotton Candy in Abstract

April 1, 2021 Lisa 1

For my last sweet-related design in March, I decided to go even more geometric than I did with the donuts. Since the prompt was for cotton candy and I already had the BP-A08 stamping plate out, I looked to it for some inspiration. It had some dots that faded out Read More

Three sweet nail art looks: yellow and orange heart balloons, green clover candies, and sweet blue and pink lollipops.

Three Sweet Manis

March 8, 2021 Lisa 1

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

A Valentine's Day candy nail art with nail foil-filled candy stamping decals all on a dusty blue to magenta thermal polish with red to copper flakies.

Foil Candies

February 3, 2021 Lisa 2

A while ago I had a brief delusion that I would use gilding nail foils more. They are fun and shiny! So I bought four more colors of them, none of which are used in this candy nail art design, and none of which have been used for over a Read More

A rainbow glow in the dark mani of silhouetted Halloween images of bats, jack-o-lanterns, haunted castle, spiders, and eyeball candy glowing out from a Christmas tree frame.

Halloween Tree

I might as well end this crap year with something that makes me very happy. So today on New Years Eve I’m sharing the mani I painted for the #halloweenforevercollab: a Halloween Tree. The Nightmare Before Christmas has forever cemented a love of blending Christmas and Halloween together and so Read More

Pink and white thermal mani with adorable heart and cactus nail decals and gold shimmer.

Love is Prickly

Now it’s not Valentine’s Day yet, but it is time for the letter ‘V’ in the #AZNailArtChallenge so Valentine’s Day is a natural pick for something that everyone can participate in. I was more than happy to use one of the first designs I painted when I was getting back Read More

Planet Candy

Hope you’re having a Happy Holo-ween! Halloween is just about over so let’s end this with a jack-o-lantern planet full of candy. I’d become an astronaut in that world… …as long as astronauts get good dental plans. 🤣 Products Used Base Polishes: Black Heart’s “Teal Galaxy“, Color Club’s “Beyond“, and Read More

Gourmet Licorice

October 3, 2018 Lisa 1

The first #GlamNailsChallengeOct prompt of the month was Candy. I did have a design with candy drawn out, but I think I want to save it for Christmas. So I did a search for candy patterns and everything Halloween seemed to either be candy corn or wrapped candies with something Read More

Candy Land Candies - Hermit Werd - holographic candy decals on a black gel base

One Black Base – Four Looks

August 24, 2017 Lisa 2

I bought two gel “colors” and since we’ve already done a bunch of white nail art, I thought it was time to do some nail art on a black reusable base. Sadly, these aren’t very thematic since we’re at the end of the month and I’m just scrambling to finish Read More

Watermarble - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Water Marble

October 17, 2016 Lisa 0

I was very tempted to cheat on this. I have never done any sort of water marbling before and I do have several nail plates with images for it on them. But I have watched videos on how to do and I knew I was just being a lazy coward, Read More
