A sunset beach-themed nail art with nail stamps of palm trees, seagulls, and skeletons. The best of tropical nightmares.

Bones at the Beach

August 3, 2021 Lisa 1

I certainly meant to post this last week, but my brain has entered a fugue state which I mostly blame on the pandemic. One family member, who was vaccinated, got Covid and is still in pretty bad shape, though not so bad that they are in the hospital. I’ve started Read More

A scattered holographic mustard nail art design with tattoo-like skulls, florals, and rib cage stamping decals.

Holo-ween Skulls and Florals

January 26, 2021 Lisa 2

I’m really happy to say that I’ve managed to keep up with the #HalloweenForeverCollab since November of last year. It’s only three months, but I think that’s my longest run so far. I even turned this one in at the start of the month instead of frantically trying to paint Read More

Sugar skull nail art for the Day of the Dead on black jelly teal glitter fake nails with freehand painted cat and fish sugar skulls and flowers.

Sugar Skull Cat

December 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’ve been wanting to paint a sugar skull cat and accompanying fish for at least two years. In fact, the false nails I used for this mani have been sporting their black jelly base since 2019’s Day of the Dead. I am good at intimidating myself out of freehand painting. Read More

Bright celery green nail art with a skull and crossed swords stamped on top.

Skull and Swords

October 17, 2020 Lisa 2

It feels a little lame to say this, but I had to color in the stamping decal of the skull twice because my brain registered the sword tips as horns on the skull so I used the wrong color on them. Woops! Anyway, this nail art falls into a general Read More

Pugly green nail art with skeletal mermaid cat double stamping decals and a teal to green gradient.

Undead Mermaid Cats of the Deep

October 13, 2020 Lisa 1

Halloween tends to really bring my love for cats out to play. It’s probably why 2 out of 3 nail arts have featured kitties so far. I doubt I’ll be able to keep such a pawsome ratio up with Inktober going on as well, but hopefully there will be one Read More

Blurple thermal nail art with skulls and skeletons and a blue and silver rhinestone.

Spooky Skeletons

October 29, 2019 Lisa 0

I put this design together for @clairestelle8challenge’s skeleton prompt, but I was just too slow to get it out. So I decided to hold it back for @glamnailschallenge’s skull prompt. Which in many ways is more fitting since the central piece of this design is a skull rhinestone that I Read More

Brown and green skeletal pirate nail art with map and compass.

Cursed Pirates

September 19, 2019 Lisa 0

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! I’m so out of practice writing for this blog that I can’t even think of a good pirate-y phrase to say hello again. Hi! I’ve slowly been painting my nails more and more complexly so it’s time to start posting too (and also because Read More

Witch of Slaughter - Hermit Werds - nail art of a lack and white skull-faced witch with bloody stamping on China Glaze's morbid "Don't Let the Dead Bite"

Witch of Slaughter

October 31, 2018 Lisa 0

I am ending the month of October on a rather bloody note. Or am I? There’s still daylight left, so I could potentially paint one last design. heh I’ve returned to my Witches of S series with the Witch of Slaughter. You may notice she doesn’t have any blood on Read More

Tomb of Snow White - Hermit Werds - horror-themed Snow White nails featuring skeleton of Snow White and her funeral flowers on a grey and black nail art with rose to green to gold flakies and shimmer

Snow White’s Tomb

October 28, 2018 Lisa 1

Sometimes the prince never comes. Poor Snow White. I painted this for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s month-long Halloween theme, #GlamNailsChallengeOct’s Skull, and #LiganailistaChallenge’s Tomb vs Castle prompt. I kinda included both prompts for the latter since we have a castle and Snow White is surely in her tomb. I am so pleased with Read More

Halloween Silhouettes - Hermit Werds - long, tall stamped silhouettes of a witch, devil, demon, skeleton, and witch on metallic rainbow coffin falsies

Halloween Silhouettes

October 16, 2018 Lisa 0

This was a set I’d wanted to do for a while because I’ve owned my DXE stamping plates for so long, but I didn’t have enough long and tall silhouettes to make a set of five until Beauty BigBang sent me their XL-028 stamping plate. Set complete! This nail art Read More
