Mushroom Fairies

June 24, 2021 Lisa 4

It’s International Fairy Day so I thought I’d share this magnetic red nail art with fairies (of course). I paired them with lots of mushrooms because I love the shape of those things and a little splash of holographic polish in the wings. So basically I went full on sweetness Read More

A medium blue polish with glitters and micro flakies with geometrically stylized cotton candy stamped on top.

Cotton Candy in Abstract

April 1, 2021 Lisa 1

For my last sweet-related design in March, I decided to go even more geometric than I did with the donuts. Since the prompt was for cotton candy and I already had the BP-A08 stamping plate out, I looked to it for some inspiration. It had some dots that faded out Read More

A medium olive/chartreuse nail art with luck, playing cards, dice, and heart/club/spade/diamond stamping decals.

National Playing Card Day

December 28, 2020 Lisa 2

Did you know that today is National Card Playing day? I have known it for the past three years since I keep meaning to paint some card-themed nail art. I keep collecting these card playing stamping plates and I needed an excuse to use them. And I just kept missing Read More

Olive Christmas art featuring accent nails with poinsettia stamping decals and a wee bird and holographic olive polish.

The Poinsettia

December 22, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I proudly prove that I not only have enough green nail polish to paint yet another monochrome green mani, but I have enough olive polishes to do it. *high fives self* I’ve rather struggled to put together monochrome looks with other colors, but this olive mani came together like Read More

Monochrome red reindeer nail art with deep red polishes and a wintery scene created from layered stamping. Merry Christmas!

Red Reindeer Christmas

December 17, 2020 Lisa 3

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More

Nail art with Christmas imagery: Santa, Christmas tree, and Santa's sleigh taking off in a shower of stars on a light tan flakie-filled base.

Christmas Clichés in Neutrals

December 12, 2020 Lisa 3

Browns are not the first color one things of when Christmas colors come up, but you know I like a challenge, friends. So I combined this personal challenge with #pantone2020winterchallenge to bring you today’s look. #pantone2020winterchallenge Ine had some beautiful colors picked this week, but they weren’t brown! So today Read More

Sunset Pirates

September 19, 2020 Lisa 2

Well, that last post took a bit to prepare. Nothing like setting myself an easy first post to get back into the swing of things. 😅 And now it’s time for some pirate nail art since it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! I think today’s design is pretty much the Read More

Three monochrome Christmas manis in purple, blue, and yellow.

Rainbow Christmas part 1

January 10, 2020 Lisa 0

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More

Orange nail art with a fierce tiger stamping decal inspired by Pantone's Orange Tiger color.

Orange Tiger

January 9, 2020 Lisa 0

It’s terribly convenient when the name of a color can be used both as the title of the nail art inspired by it and the subject. Today I have my Orange Tiger mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge run by the lovely Ine (@inegeek) and it’s not getting posted on the last possible Read More

Fly, Hot Air Balloon - Hermit Werds - Orange monochrome hot air balloon nail art with holographic nail polish

Fly, Hot Air Balloon

April 19, 2019 Lisa 0

I’ve been trying to find the right design to use for this gorgeous orange holographic polish (Shinespark Polish’s “Poppy Topaz“) and somehow it kept not happening for me. I thought for sure I’d get to it in October, but it didn’t fit any of the Halloween designs I wanted most Read More
