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

I usually stick to one nail art:one blog poast, but things are getting backed up so we’re going to have a few two-fer posts in the next week. Today we’re talking about my nail art for #GlamNailsChallenge’s Paisley (The Fanciest Paisley) and #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ Dry or Drag Marble (Welcome to Hell). Read More

It’s been a month since I posted a design on my cindy hand, but here it is with some cacti stamping decals on Masura’s lovely dark terracotta polish. I am deeply in love with this color, but the polish was so very thick and dried so fast that painting it Read More

Today I’m combining Nail Crazies Unite’s prompt of Inspired by TV Show with a belated National Donut Day holiday to bring you some Homer Simpson nail art. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched The Simpsons on a regular basis, but I still remember it fondly. Lisa Simpson will Read More

Since I’d so recently painted a monochrome blue mani I didn’t really want to have to go through that many test swatches again any time soon. But #WhenColoursCollide had a blue theme so I went with a crazy water marble, which is easier to pick colors for. I’m really happy Read More

The best weather for using thermal polishes is rapidly fading away so I thought it was time to use Shinespark’s “Snowfall” before it became too difficult to photograph in all its glory. And with my luck the day I used it was rather warm and I still had to dip Read More

#WhenColoursCollide was much more vigilant this time about people strictly sticking to the color prompt and to that I say, ‘Good for them!’ It felt like people were playing fast and loose with the prompts more and more, and it was time to rein it in. And, of course, it Read More

Coffee Blues 2.0 - Hermit Werds - blue monochrome coffee-themed nail art

Coffee Blues 2.0

April 30, 2018 Lisa 0

I thought I’d sneak in another recreation for #NailChallengeCollaborative before the month ended. This was actually from October of last year so it really hasn’t been too long, but it’s also one of my favorite themes: coffee! I liked the idea of a blue monochrome coffee mani, but I took Read More

Really, this is my third recreation this month, but I spaced adding the first one to the #NailChallengeCollaborative (since recreating is the month’s prompt). I’d intended to do two more recreations this month, but the nail art gods have not been with me and my poor nails have spent far Read More

[Press Sample] Hello, again! We are on the second and final day of my review of three Dimension Nails polishes that the company founder sent to me. Yesterday we focused on formula, color comparisons, and the question of water marbling. Today we’re just focusing on the fun of using them Read More
