Citrus Kindness

Okay, the title to this mani isn’t all that creative, but the main stamping images came from the Kindness is Magic stamping plate from The Stamping Shop Collab, so I just went with it. And since my theme was already going to be citrus, I decided to go with citrus-y Read More

Oceanic Watermelon Picnic

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

A magenta-purple mani with tons of blue and magenta flakies with a wee little smiling banana stamping decal.

Banana-rama

January 27, 2021 Lisa 2

There was a time when I was making myself a green smoothie every day and my home was full of the overripe bananas from the store because I could get them cheaper that way. And while bananas were thriftily in all of them, I was making the real deal green Read More

Fruit-themed bright orange nail art with orange slice and orange stamping decals on top.

The Orange-iest

January 22, 2021 Lisa 2

The only way this nail art could get orange-er is if I’d used an orange stamping polish instead of black. Kinda wish I had, but avoiding black stamping is my personal and eternal challenge so I can’t say it really needed it. 😆 I actually painted this one clear back Read More

Today I am bringing you some super purple grape nail art for #glamnailschallengesept. At the start of this month I finally went through my helmers and recorded all of the polishes I haven’t used yet on the blog.

August 3, 2018 Lisa 0

[Press Sample] It’s International Watermelon Day and Tena (@nailsit) put together a collaboration to celebrate. I thought it was the perfect time to review Beauty BigBangs’ XL-001 stamping plate since 2 of the 14 images have watermelons on them. If you’ve been reading me for long, you would know my Read More

Juicy Watermelon

This is a design I’ve been wanting to tackle for over a year now. So when #NailCraziesUnite had a Sweet Fruit prompt, there was no question what I was going to do. After all, I’d already gotten strawberries out of my system last year. Well, as far out of my Read More

Mystery Berries - Hermit Werds - brown veil technique over white gel polish with red berries stamped on top

Mystery Berries

February 5, 2018 Lisa 0

The veil technique has hit the nail art community and I wanted to try it out sooner rather than later. Lucky for me my nails were already painted white. The basic idea is to drip one or two drops of your polish into a cup of warm water and let Read More

Retro Cherry - Hermit Werds - cherry patterned nails in retro style

Retro Cherry

August 30, 2017 Lisa 0

Whenever I think of retro patterns cherries are one of the first things I think of. Red is the favorite retro lip color. And I’d always gotten the impression that soda fountains were a major hang out spot for a pretty big length of time in there as well. Of Read More
