An aqua magnetic baby boomer french tip nail design with green to rose gold gradient snowflakes and a cute reindeer stamping decal.

Snow-deer Reindeer

February 2, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s theme is cute and snowflake-y, but the prompt that inspired this design was #NailsWithIG Friend’s Winter Animal. Now Maniology’s BM-S156 is a stamping plate with nothing but winter animals, so I was definitely using it. And I knooow that Christmas is over, but I could not resist this cute Read More

A grey crelly with flakies that shift from red, orange, gold, yellow and green with floral negative space stamps in red and green.

Pantone Floral

January 31, 2021 Lisa 2

I have one last nail art to share before the month ends because I’m definitely not going to miss one of my pantone prompts. I kept it very simple according to my energy levels and stuck with three different stamps of the same image. And yet I still had to Read More

Bright celery green nail art with a skull and crossed swords stamped on top.

Skull and Swords

October 17, 2020 Lisa 2

It feels a little lame to say this, but I had to color in the stamping decal of the skull twice because my brain registered the sword tips as horns on the skull so I used the wrong color on them. Woops! Anyway, this nail art falls into a general Read More

Pugly green nail art with skeletal mermaid cat double stamping decals and a teal to green gradient.

Undead Mermaid Cats of the Deep

October 13, 2020 Lisa 1

Halloween tends to really bring my love for cats out to play. It’s probably why 2 out of 3 nail arts have featured kitties so far. I doubt I’ll be able to keep such a pawsome ratio up with Inktober going on as well, but hopefully there will be one Read More

Glittery silver and gold nail art with people cheering and partying underneath a 2020 stamping image.

2020 Glitter-fest

January 4, 2020 Lisa 0

I painted this glitter-fest on the first day of 2020 and meant to at least post it on Friday, but my “little nap” turned into a six hours nap followed by maybe two hours of consciousness and then eight more hours of horizontal recuperation. I may have started the year Read More

Blurple thermal nail art with skulls and skeletons and a blue and silver rhinestone.

Spooky Skeletons

October 29, 2019 Lisa 0

I put this design together for @clairestelle8challenge’s skeleton prompt, but I was just too slow to get it out. So I decided to hold it back for @glamnailschallenge’s skull prompt. Which in many ways is more fitting since the central piece of this design is a skull rhinestone that I Read More

Birds of Fall - Hermit Werds - nail art of a sweet little fall birds on a duochrome red leaf background

Birds of Fall

October 3, 2018 Lisa 0

I fell in love with nail art with tiny birds last winter and haven’t had nearly enough opportunities to explore the subject. So I inevitably chose birds for my fall look for #NailsWithIgFriends hosted by the lovely Neha (@nehabothra). These are more stylized so they’re not quite as dear to Read More

Thankfully Halloween - Hermit Werds - purple magnetic polish with spooky stamping (spider, ghouls, bats, haunted house) on top

Thankfully Halloween

September 24, 2018 Lisa 0

I’m back with one of my recreations of last year’s designs that I wasn’t happy with. I’ve skipped around to return to a purple magnetic polish look that I made to express my thankfulness on how much I enjoy painting nails with my stepdaughter who often asks for Halloween stamps. Read More

Watermelon Jelly - Hermit Werds - pink jelly watermelon nail art with a gradient-stamped watermelon background

Beauty BigBang Review – BeautyBigBang XL-001 stamping plate

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

Paisley Whale

August 2, 2018 Lisa 0

Today I bring you paisley and whales! Why? Well, #NailsWithIgFriends’ July host, Caroline (@gidwaney), picked Paisley and I just randomly added whales because it felt like a good idea at the time. This is the second time I’ve combined a large oceanic animal with a common fabric type/pattern in less Read More
