UFO: Grab and Go (and glow!)

I had a big case of restlessness all last week so sitting down to do anything just wasn’t happening, hence the lack of posts. So I’m a little late posting this, but I did manage to turn the mani in on time for @aznailartchallenge’s ‘U’ is for UFO. I’m in Read More

I was all set to paint dinosaur nail art for today’s look but I ended up deciding on a simpler subject matter for today. Don’t worry, though, dinosaur nails will happen soon. I keep buying stamping plates with them! But somehow today’s color–Pantone Sheepskin–felt like more of a tree nail Read More

Monochrome red reindeer nail art with deep red polishes and a wintery scene created from layered stamping. Merry Christmas!

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More

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

Key to the Cranberry Forest

A simple nail art today with a super bright shade of red. I am enjoying the #pantone2019winterchallenge since its polish swatch focus forces me to stop piling more details in on a single nail art. Today’s shade is Cranberry, although Ine (@inegeek) has already posted the prompt for next week: Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – BBB-001 stamping plate

October 11, 2018 Lisa 1

[press sample] This is it! My final Beauty BigBang review for the month. Today we’re looking at BBB-001, a circle plate with four full-nail images and four smaller images. They’re all quite fun, but since I was going to create a full look with them, I decided to stick to 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

Baby Trees - Hermit Werds - spooky red forest with babies hanging from trees

Baby Trees

Edit: This was funny in 2017 and became a terrible reality in 2018. What is being done to people who just want to immigrate to a country where they can be safe is wrong. What is being done can never be forgiven. #FireDazedOct2017’s Spooky Forest prompt that I am also Read More
