Bugs in the Woods

March 26, 2021 Lisa 2

Last year when my husband and I went camping, the wildlife that we saw the most were the flies. It certainly helped to keep us eating our food quick so most of them would go away again. Anyway, when the xyloid (relating to, consisting of, or resembling wood) prompt came 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

Cactus-themed nail art with a tawny brown and holographic dark red polish and gold geometric frames with potted cacti.

Cactus at Red Rock

November 29, 2020 Lisa 2

This nail art design started with a color scheme. I knew I had this lovely brown with Pantone’s Tawny Birch and I wanted to paint something cozy with it. I paired it with this deep red holographic polish and the whole thing felt rather western to me so I went Read More

A simple fall nail art with stampings of leaves, pumpkins, and other harvest-related items on an apricot jelly polish background.

Pumpkin Harvest of Fall

November 6, 2020 Lisa 3

Today I have a simple nail art on top of a gorgeous nearly-neutral jelly polish. It’s been the first time in a long while that I have combined two nail art challenges, but the fall color scheme from #pantone2020winterchallenge fit well with #aznailartchallenge’s ‘P’ is for Pumpkin prompt. Plus I Read More

Golden Spider Army

October 22, 2020 Lisa 4

My love for spiders is hopefully not causing too many people distress, but be warned that this post chock full of eight-legged beauties. Although…if you’ve followed me for very long at all you’d know that I always find myself painting spider nail art every Halloween/October. 😏 Did I just use Read More

Lucky Pig

January 17, 2020 Lisa 0

The traditional colors for Chinese New Year are red and gold and I already painted that for the Year of the Pig. But each year also has lucky colors associated with it (for Pigs it’s yellow, grey, and brown) and I decided I wanted to paint designs for that too. Read More

A quick update this morning with a soft, neutral-colored nail art. I painted this for Ine’s (@inegeek) #pantone2019winterchallenge. KBShimmer’s “Tiers of Joy” was the closest I could come to a shade that matched Patone’s Crème de Pêche. Products Used Base Polish: KBShimmer’s “Tiers of Joy“ Stamping Polish: Mundo de Unas’ Read More

Neutral colored nail art of an evil magic spell to summon a spider queen. Lots of spider webs.

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

Elegant Peacock - Hermit Werds - blue and green metallic peacock stamping with black

Elegant Peacock and Neutrally Scientific

November 3, 2017 Lisa 2

I do love the coloring of a peacock. If I couldn’t choose rainbow as my favorite color, I’d probably have to pick peacock. It’s a testament to how much nail art I want to do that I have only labeled one other nail art as peacock, but it’s still a Read More
