May’s Birthdays

June 9, 2018 Lisa 0

I had two birthday manis in May and both of them were for pillars of the nail art community instead of specific people. The first one I am sharing with you is one that posted more recently. It is the first year anniversary of the start of #NailAddicsCollab! I wanted Read More

Metallic Stars

@nailsmyth posted an amaaazing metallic water marble using KleanColor polishes and I had them so I really wanted to try my hand at it too. The water marbling gods were not with me even with the humidifier on. The polishes were just drying too fast for me to get any Read More

Ladybug Aggregation - Hermit Werds - nail art with soft, sweet ladybugs and daisies against a bright yellow background

Ladybug Aggregation

Ladybug aggregation is when ladybugs form large clusters and hibernate together over the winter. Sometimes they try to do this in our buildings and people get really fussed. But as numerous as they seem in such situations, their populations are in decline. You can help by not only stopping people Read More

Watercolor Feathers

Today I’m combining #NailCraziesUnite’s prompt of Pastel Watercolor and #WNAC2018’s prompt of Feathers. I’ve been enjoying this opal white gel for the lovely translucent effect it can add to your nail art. So far I’ve tried it with glitter, jelly polishes, and now watercolors. The only thing that sucks about Read More

Ah, the Carnival of Brazil. I’ve seen images and videos of Brazil’s annual festival held between the Friday afternoon before Ash Wednesday and Ash Wednesday at noon. It marks the beginning of Lent, the forty-day period before Easter. I love the feathers and the colors and the feathers and the Read More

Golden for Office 2.0

April 16, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s recreate month at #NailChallengeCollaborative and today I’m revisiting a nail art I painted last year in April and was never quite happy with. It was supposed to be a design that one could wear to work without getting into trouble so I tried to make it something that wouldn’t Read More

Glitter My Heart

March 22, 2018 Lisa 0

Confession time! I’ve had this set of glitter polishes for several years and I have never used it. Which is why it’s in its original packaging with a sexy discount sticker. $.33 a bottle is still a loss if you never use the polish. No, wait. I’m sure I can Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – dried clover/flowers

March 12, 2018 Lisa 0

<press sample> Today I have my first product review from the second batch of goodies Maggie from Beauty BigBang sent me. This was my first time using real flowers on my nails, but I have used pheasant feathers on my nails before. I’ve found the hardest part about it to Read More

Phoenix In Flight

March 9, 2018 Lisa 2

So #clairestelle8 has all mythical creature prompts this month (like /cough unicorn) and that’s pretty hard for me to resist. Happily, I already had designs I wanted to do for most of these beasties, especially the phoenix. I have already painted a few phoenix designs before, but I bought OS-03 Read More
