Coral, Mint, and White - Hermit Werds - cool chevron and geometric butterfly/flowering plant stamped on white and coral gradient

Coral, Mint, and White

July 24, 2018 Lisa 2

This was a fun combination of #ClaireStelle8Challenge’s Chevron, #NailChallengeCollaborative’s Geometric, and #WhenColoursCollide’s coral/mint/white prompts. I even got to knock out several items in my collection that I hadn’t used yet. That’s always a bonus. I kinda wish I had more to say, but this all ended up coming together very Read More

Black Sheep, Green Meadows

Just a quick, simple nail art today. Sometimes I complicate things too much and end up staring off into the distance because it’s too much work and I don’t wanna get started. Plus the first version of my other nail art didn’t turn out the way I wanted so I Read More

#WhenColoursCollide was much more vigilant this time about people strictly sticking to the color prompt and to that I say, ‘Good for them!’ It felt like people were playing fast and loose with the prompts more and more, and it was time to rein it in. And, of course, it Read More

It’s recreate month at #NailChallengeCollaborative and today I’m revisiting a nail art I painted last year in April and was never quite happy with. It was supposed to be a design that one could wear to work without getting into trouble so I tried to make it something that wouldn’t Read More

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

Pink and Teal (Water Marble)

March 18, 2018 Lisa 0

Today we have a Pink and Teal color prompt from #WhenColoursCollide. I actually managed this water marble before I did all the crazy rainbow ones for Rainbow In-carnation. I was only planning on water marbling for two nails. I had the door closed, the humidifier on, and…I let the water Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – dried clover/flowers

March 12, 2018 Lisa 0

<press sample> Today I have my first product review from the second batch of goodies Maggie from Beauty BigBang sent me. This was my first time using real flowers on my nails, but I have used pheasant feathers on my nails before. I’ve found the hardest part about it to Read More

The collage for #NailAddictsCollab posted yesterday and I was completely unprepared! I need to get caught up on (mostly) writing my blog posts when I finish everything else. This was a fun one and, for once, easy. The prompt was Untried, Unused, Unloved and you were supposed to get in Read More

Eye of the (Domesticated) Tiger - Hermit Werds - metallic oranges and pinks stamped over with the black stripes of a cat

Eye of the (Domesticated) Tiger

I just can’t do enough cat nail art, obviously. The hard part of this mani was settling on which metallic polish colors I wanted to use because I’d always planned on using a bunch and then having black as my one color. It’s not cheating if you were plotting it Read More
