Fox Among Daisies

September 19, 2018 Lisa 0

I’m feeling like a complete-ist this month, but I knew I wasn’t going to be able to finish all of the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts and everything else I wanted to do unless I got a little bit creative. So I decided to combine daisies and foxes. It also conveniently meant that Read More

Well, I’d hoped to post some nail art inbetween my two #ClaireStelle8Challenge prompts, but it wasn’t to be. Instead, I’m back with my second #clairestelle8sept design: a spring mani in autumn colors (See: Ornate Owl for a fall mani in spring colors). And it’s a garden snail! Base Polishes: L’oreal’s Read More

I’m mostly following @glamnailschallenge this month, but #clairestelle8sept had an autumn in spring colors and a spring in autumn colors prompt that intrigued me. I couldn’t resist. Owls do show up year-round, but I think of them most in the fall so I decided to use a beautiful across-nail image Read More

Today I am bringing you some super purple grape nail art for #glamnailschallengesept. At the start of this month I finally went through my helmers and recorded all of the polishes I haven’t used yet on the blog. I had 52 Sinful Colors/Shine polishes listed alone, 150 total unlisted polishes. Read More

You may remember that I reviewed these stamping plates back in December 2017. So even though I’m not sticking the [press sample] notice on the top of the post because this isn’t a review, you should be aware that I did not use my own money to buy BeautyBigBang06 and Read More

Yesterday we were traveling over the sea and today we’re beneath the water’s surface with this brown ‘O’ is for Ocean mani for #AZNailArtChallenge. I wanted to pair China Glaze’s shimmery “Choo-choo Choose You” brown with duochromes and see what kind of magic would happen. I’m loving the results. I Read More

Blue Lily - Hermit Werds - cobalt blue nail art with pearly white lily nail stamping and flower decal

Blue Lily

Oh, I love this blue. It’s bright and yet not absolutely saturated and obnoxious. It’s dark but not so dark that it doesn’t show up as blue in most lighting situations. It is probably one of the few polishes that I would get a backup bottle to. Most other polish Read More

DC Heros - Aquaman - Hermit Werds - green, scale-y, and trident-y nail art for DC's Aquaman with holographic glitter on top.

DC Heroes – Aquaman

I just finished watching Justice League and–having watched Batman vs Superman previously–it was a little weird that Batman became the comic relief when Flash was also the comic relief and Affleck’s Batman was super dark originally. I wish they’d be more consistent with their character development. I did enjoy the Read More

Chocolate Mandala - Hermit Werds - accent nail mandalas in mustard, green, and berry shades with brown scattered holographic nails

I tried a new Instagram challenge this time: @ColoursWithinWomen. When this group goes with a color theme, they want to see three nails of only that color and an accent nail. (No rules for thumbs though. Woo!) I have a lot of neglected brown polishes that for some reason I’m Read More
