A stained glass butterfly nail art with an iridescent flakie topper and watercolor paint to fill in the butterfly decals.

Stained Glass Butterflies

June 17, 2021 Lisa 2

Today is this blog’s fifth anniversary. So it’s kind of ironic that I have been very distracted from it and don’t feel much like posting currently. Some of it is that I bought some roller skates and not only busted off a nail already (luckily on my cindy hand) but Read More

An outer space mani, with a field of stars created by white glitter in a black jelly and colorful stamping images of planets and a planet-headed lady.

It has been a distracting week and while I had lots of plans for cool nail art, painting didn’t really happen. But at least I have this cool planet-themed nail art that let me continue my Witches of S series. I’d say this witch is the most powerful one yet, Read More

A pastel Easter crelly skittle nail design with a magical bunny, cute bunny butts, and a bunny in a jar for next year.

Easter Preserves

I am having a very slow brain day. Hence why this pastel crelly nail art full of cute bunnies is posting a day later than I’d intended. It has been four years since I painted a rainbow Easter mani with crellies. I have a lot more of them now so Read More

Three sweet nail art looks: yellow and orange heart balloons, green clover candies, and sweet blue and pink lollipops.

Three Sweet Manis

I am interested in way too many challenges this month and yet there are a lot of real life things I need to get done. So…things might get messy(er) this month. I may be hitting it hard and then abruptly ghost. We’ll just have to see. One compromise I’m making Read More

Halloween Tree

I might as well end this crap year with something that makes me very happy. So today on New Years Eve I’m sharing the mani I painted for the #halloweenforevercollab: a Halloween Tree. The Nightmare Before Christmas has forever cemented a love of blending Christmas and Halloween together and so Read More

Funny coffee nail stamping decals over black baby boomer french tips with rainbowy bar glitter.

Coffee Makes Me Poop

September 29, 2020 Lisa 4

Happy International Coffee Day! Was I being too tmi? Well, what else can you expect from me. I’ve been wanting to paint this exact rainbow coffee nail art for a while because the contrast between the cheeriness of the rainbow-y bar glitter and the wording (carefully crafted by removing 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

Four Elements of Holo - Hermit Werds - nail art of the four elements and representative animals (blue/dolphin/water, green/horse/earth, orange/scorpion/fire, and yellow/dragonfly/air) with a holographic thermal top coat on top

Four Elements of Holo – BP Review (top coat)

February 11, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I’d love to create a whole series of nail art based on the elements, but I have other series that I’ve already started and want to round out more first. So today I decided to visit the four basic elements according to Western culture: fire, earth, water, and Read More

Duochrome Floral - Hermit Werds - five different duochromes stamped in a floral pattern on black

Beauty BigBang Review – duochrome stamping set J6504TM

November 29, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] I have been coveting Beauty BigBang’s J6504TM set of duochrome stamping polishes since they came out a few months ago. Partly because rainbow is my favorite color and duochromes add a tiny slice of a rainbow to any nail art they are used in. a Partly because the Read More
