March’s host for #NailsWithIgFriends was Sharon (@sharnailstar). She is an actual nail technician and I admire her work greatly. She is living proof that you don’t have to obsessively make decals to create gorgeous and complex designs with nail stamping. The theme was Circles and Lines. I really wanted to Read More

This is a design I’ve been wanting to tackle for over a year now. So when #NailCraziesUnite had a Sweet Fruit prompt, there was no question what I was going to do. After all, I’d already gotten strawberries out of my system last year. Well, as far out of my Read More

I had other plans for #26GreatNailArtIdeas French with a Twist prompt, but then I tried some glitter placement with rhombus sequins and that got me to playing with them more and suddenly I had a different idea for French with a Twist. And for some reason it wasn’t Godzilla in Read More

I’m back with a new #TheInspirationChallenge nail art. This time we had an image of a model in a skirt with a lot of sheer black tiers. I loved how the bright aqua color of the wall behind her blended with the sheer black on the skirt to create this Read More

So #clairestelle8 has all mythical creature prompts this month (like /cough unicorn) and that’s pretty hard for me to resist. Happily, I already had designs I wanted to do for most of these beasties, especially the phoenix. I have already painted a few phoenix designs before, but I bought OS-03 Read More

Earlier today I had a real water marble on my nails and…it bored me. I mean, I did sit there for a while being proud that I had actually managed a standard water marble pattern. Self back pats. Yessss. But I kept it simple and plain and those kinds of Read More

Lovingly Lilac - Hermit Werds - a pink and lilac smoosh marble with a white heart design stamped on top

This as my first attempt at a base for my recreation of Becky (@nail.dazed)’s nail art for her birthday. The theme was dark blue/purple/red and recreating. The mani I was recreating had a light background so I thought I would do that and make my decals really dark and that Read More

Mystery Berries - Hermit Werds - brown veil technique over white gel polish with red berries stamped on top

The veil technique has hit the nail art community and I wanted to try it out sooner rather than later. Lucky for me my nails were already painted white. The basic idea is to drip one or two drops of your polish into a cup of warm water and let Read More
