Quartz

March 4, 2022 Lisa 0

I meant to get this written up sooner, but I made the mistake of wandering outside to weed for a bit. The new yard is much bigger than the old and the abundance of rain has kept certain plants growing all winter. In other words, I was clawing things out Read More

A polka dot pig nail art with party pig reverse stamping decals and polka dots tucked between layers of a bright green jelly polish.

Party Pigs

February 23, 2022 Lisa 0

It’s time for a pig party where the pigs dance around in a vortex of polka dots while wearing crowns and eating cupcakes! Okay, it sounds a little strange to describe it in that amount of detail, but party pig nail art makes sense and has some alliteration, which I Read More

A rainbow skittle pond nail art with hibiscus stamping decals sandwiched in layers of red, purple, blue, yellow, and orange jelly polish.

Sloppy Hibiscus Pond – Born Pretty jelly review

January 17, 2022 Lisa 2

This isn’t an official review. Born Pretty did not send me these polishes for review. But I bought four of them during the Singles Day sale and I thought I’d use them together in a quick (and sloppy) mani to see how they worked. So this is very rainbow and Read More

A pond mani with glow in the dark snowflake stickers and a white panoramic cityscape using a dark blue jelly polish.

Inner City Winter

March 6, 2021 Lisa 2

It hasn’t taken me long to make my second glow in the dark pond look. I mean, time was running out since the glow in the dark stickers I bought were snowflakes and we’re heavy into spring nail art season. (I bought some Christmas ones too. They will have to Read More

Nail art with stamping decals of beautiful Russian nesting dolls or matryoshka dolls in pinks, reds, and greens on a rusty red background with subtle jelly sandwich.

Russian Nesting Dolls

December 4, 2020 Lisa 2

It was really convenient of Ine to pick accompanying colors in the #pantone2020winterchallenge that worked perfectly for painting the ‘R’ is for Russian Dolls prompt for #aznailartchallenge. With the power of two challenges behind me, things came together pretty quickly. #pantone2020winterchallenge Honestly I felt seriously spoiled when I saw the Read More

Quilting themed nail art with decals of sewing machine, bobbins, cloth swatches, and patterns to make a beautiful pink and green quilt.

Quilting with Love

November 20, 2020 Lisa 2

When the prompt ‘Q’ is for Quilt came up for the @aznailartchallenge I immediately thought about my dragon quilt nail art where I literally painted and then stamped on square swatches of polish and applied them to some false nails. I really loved the concept and wanted to revisit it, Read More

Life's a Beach - Hermit Werds - tropical green pond jelly nail art with palm trees

Life’s a Beach

April 4, 2019 Lisa 0

It doesn’t even begin to feel tropical yet, but not all beaches are warm anyway. In fact, half of my beach experiences have been rather cold and windy (but still fun). Today it was Palm Trees for #ColoursWithinWomen so I turned to the Hangouts stamping plate set by Maniology. Amusingly, Read More

Galactic Snowstorm - Hermit Werds - purple, magenta, and blue galaxy nail art with snow flakes, sparkly glitter, and astronaut rabbit, polar bear, and penguin stamping decals

Galactic Snowstorm – featuring Born Pretty Christmas-L005

December 6, 2018 Lisa 0

Someone had a galactic challenge prompt (that I missed) and two other challenges had snowflake prompts (that I’m late for) and the stamping plate I used today had this lovely combination of both. And so I found myself painting classic galaxy nails even though I’ve said several times that I’m Read More

Black Coffee - Hermit Werds - coffee themed black jelly nails covered with black stamping and masked off areas filled with black

Black Coffee

March 30, 2018 Lisa 0

We can’t let the month end without a coffee mani. In fact, this is my eighth nail art dedicated to the delicious drink. I only have four to go before I can declare I have a year’s worth of coffee manis and believe when I say that has been my Read More
