I’m not terribly great at fluid art just yet, but the colors blending together on today’s nail art just make my heart so happy. Also the witch falling off her broom is pretty hilarious. Ah, the joy of the suffering of others. 🤣 Products Used Fluid Art Polishes: Celestial Cosmetics’ Read More

Summoning the Spider Queen – BBB Review (glow in the dark powder)

October 14, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I’m always excited when spider or bug prompts show up. So today’s design jumped ship from @clairestelle8’s Halloween prompts to @glamnailchallenge’s spider prompt. I really wanted to explore some ugly prettiness and neutral shades with just a touch of color. So I painted in all neutrals and ended Read More

It’s late, but it’s still Tell a Fairy Tale Day for a bit longer! I chose The Swan Princess for #NailChallenge’s Fairy Tale prompt because #GlamNailsChallenge also had a Swan prompt and I thought that made a good fit. There are several tales involving swans in the common fairy tale Read More

Since I’d already painted a Phoenix and a unicorn this month I decided to tackle a different Mythical Creature for this month’s #NailsWithIgFriends hosted by Christine (@shortywhatwhat).

This is my first time participating in #manicollabs on Instagram. The prompt was Inspired by a Country You Would Like to Visit and I asked if it had to be a real country. They said ‘no’ so then I spent time thinking about a recognizable and cool land I would Read More

For as long as I can remember, I have seen artists drawing fairies with clothing made from flowers. So when #nailsunitedseptchallenge had a prompt for Fairy coinciding directly with the flower prompt for #31DC2017, well, there was only one thing to do. So I did it on a beautiful thermal Read More

One of my favorite movie memories was watching the Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke, both the transformations and when it was walking on the ground and plants just sprung up beneath its feet. It was so utterly magical to me. Like…that’s what a nature god should be (see also: Meredith Read More
