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

Cold, dark nail art with black and grey crellies filled with aqua hex glitter and the frosty white spirit of a deer.

Winter’s Deer

I managed to paint several manis in December that I didn’t have the energy to post. It worked out well because this one fit the prompts for both #NailsWithIgFriends’ Winter Animals (hosted by Tricia @artisanloom.nailz this month) and Catherine’s (@mrscronall) monthly prompt for 2020 #mymonthlynaturalmani’s Snowflakes. Products used Base Polishes: Read More

Year of the Pig nail art with pig stamping in all of the pig's lucky colors: brown, grey, and yellow.

Lucky Pig

January 17, 2020 Lisa 0

The traditional colors for Chinese New Year are red and gold and I already painted that for the Year of the Pig. But each year also has lucky colors associated with it (for Pigs it’s yellow, grey, and brown) and I decided I wanted to paint designs for that too. Read More

Autumnal nail art with a little blue bird against a robin blue crelly full of pink/orange/red flakies.

Blue Bird of Autumn – BP Review (stamping polish)

November 24, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I painted this in September, but it really felt more fall-like than summer so I have held it back until now. Unfortunately, that meant holding back my review for Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” as well, but… Born Pretty’s “Sunrise” …it ended up looking so similar to their “Orange Autumn” Read More

A soft crelly nail art in neutral shades with floral lily pad stamping.

Crème de Pêche Floral

A quick update this morning with a soft, neutral-colored nail art. I painted this for Ine’s (@inegeek) #pantone2019winterchallenge. KBShimmer’s “Tiers of Joy” was the closest I could come to a shade that matched Patone’s Crème de Pêche.

Grey crelly polish with blue jack-o-lantern nails colored in with watercolor paint.

Petrifying Pumpkins

October 22, 2019 Lisa 2

I thought it would be fun to make advanced stamping decals that were filled with white and use watercolor paint on them. It worked fairly well. I love the watercolor look and how it lets you use a blend of colors across an image. And I love using it with Read More

A delicately gruesome zombie nail art using a translucent shimmery orange polish and soft metallic green zombies.

Zombie Apocalypse

October 17, 2019 Lisa 0

Today’s nail art is a combination of delicate and gruesome with zombies pulling terrible faces on a soft, glittery orange/magenta background. I’m sure they’re friendly zombies just trying to get out a hello around their rotting tongues…🤣 Products Used Base Polishes: Femme Fatale’s “City of the Sun“ with an acetone-thinned Read More

Crelly-corn - Hermit Werds - nail art of a crazy cool unicorn facing a unicorn silhouette against an orange crelly background

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

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

Snowman Wonderland

January 14, 2019 Lisa 0

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

Have a Crelly Christmas - Hermit Werds - nail art of a pink glittery crelly with reindeer with a "Merry X-mas" message on top

Have a Crelly Christmas

December 21, 2018 Lisa 0

Some people may prefer that the term never be shortened but, as a nail artist, it just feels like it would be easier to fit the whole thing on my nails. 🤣🤣🤣 So today we have Merry Xmas instead of Merry Christmas and I do still feel slightly guilty because Read More
