Can it be? Am I posting my mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge’s Evening Blue shade on not-Sunday? 😂 My design was inspired by this month, which, as discussed with others earlier today, is really more about the buying of the things. Black Friday and Cyber Monday become increasingly spread out as stores Read More

Somehow I managed to fit in the @one_nail_creativity_club in the middle of all my reviewing. I think it turned out pretty well, though if I could do it again, I’d cobble together two different stamping images and continue the theme of lace hearts up the entire nail. Alas, I am Read More

[press sample] Have you been missing the glow in the dark stuff? I have. Why can I never get around to painting them more?! Well today’s glow did not even require painting because I used Beauty BigBang’s glow in the dark heart sequins (J4196-1C) along with the last stamping plate Read More

When I was younger what I called “turquoise” was a much more vivid and blue-leaning color than the shade that most people think of when they hear the word. Instead, I think people think of the actual gemstone which tends to be lighter and much more green-leaning and so I’ve Read More

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

I had other plans for #26GreatNailArtIdeas French with a Twist prompt, but then I tried some glitter placement with rhombus sequins and that got me to playing with them more and suddenly I had a different idea for French with a Twist. And for some reason it wasn’t Godzilla in Read More

Embrace the Night – An Exploration in Glitter Placement

This mani was for #TheInspirationChallenge on Instagram. It gave me an excuse to play with some rhombus sequins that I had just purchased to make a harlequin pattern. I’d also like to pretend these are my Mardi Gras nails. Sequins are so shiny and wonderful, but one thing I’ve learned Read More

Green Sequins - Hermit Werds - green sequins in three sizes arranged in triangle on nails

Beauty BigBang Review – Green Sequins

February 1, 2018 Lisa 0

Press Sample Today I am reviewing the set of sequins (2.5MM, 2MM, and 1.5MM) that Maggie from Beauty BigBang sent to me for review. First, I tried using the three different sizes of iridescent sequins in one look. I used the largest sequins first and each layer used a smaller Read More
