It seems like I only paint coral nails when it comes from a nail challenge prompt (#LigaNailistaChallenge) and then I just want to go full on coral. So today I have another coral monochrome. You can see the one I painted in 2017 here [Edit 1-16-2018: Sorry, it was a Read More

Well, I’m going to be getting out of order, but I haven’t forgotten the nail art prompts that I missed! I really wanted to paint some Robin Moses nail art this month, but I wasn’t interested in snowmen (which is what the prompts were for on Instagram) so I asked Read More

I have completely busted off my index finger’s nail so while I’m fixing that (and the broken links, ugh) I have another recreation from 2017’s #NailFails. My biggest crime with this one was using KleanColor’s metallic polish to stamp something detailed. It looks fine until you top coat and then Read More

November 30, 2018 Lisa 0

My final review for the latest batch of what Maggie from Beauty BigBang sent to me is Beauty BigBang’s XL-011 stamping plate. Now I was originally supposed to review this stamping plate along with the batch I painted in October, but there was a problem with one of the images. Read More

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

I’m feeling like a complete-ist this month, but I knew I wasn’t going to be able to finish all of the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts and everything else I wanted to do unless I got a little bit creative. So I decided to combine daisies and foxes. It also conveniently meant that Read More

You may remember that I reviewed these stamping plates back in December 2017. So even though I’m not sticking the [press sample] notice on the top of the post because this isn’t a review, you should be aware that I did not use my own money to buy BeautyBigBang06 and Read More

Blue Lily - Hermit Werds - cobalt blue nail art with pearly white lily nail stamping and flower decal

Blue Lily

September 2, 2018 Lisa 0

Oh, I love this blue. It’s bright and yet not absolutely saturated and obnoxious. It’s dark but not so dark that it doesn’t show up as blue in most lighting situations. It is probably one of the few polishes that I would get a backup bottle to. Most other polish Read More
