A purple baby boomer french tip nail art with a solar holographic glitter polish and starfish stamping decals on top.

Solar Starfish

July 8, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s look feels very simple to me and yet it’s not. It has a negative space stamp and a reverse stamping decal of starfish, but then it also has baby boomer French tips with a glittery solar polish on top. And on my thumb I have another reverse stamping decal Read More

Patriotic nail art for the United States of Zombies with a red white and blue crelly and zombie stamping decals.

United States of Zombie

June was hard for some reason. I had to scale my nail art plans back to only the stuff I really, really wanted to paint and the @halloweenforevercollab was one of them. I really, really want to not miss this one all year. I’ve come close a few times, but Read More

A red magnetic nail art with soft rose gold crelly accent nails and stamping decals of fairies, mushrooms, and flora.

Mushroom Fairies

June 24, 2021 Lisa 4

It’s International Fairy Day so I thought I’d share this magnetic red nail art with fairies (of course). I paired them with lots of mushrooms because I love the shape of those things and a little splash of holographic polish in the wings. So basically I went full on sweetness Read More

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

A neon cool nail art of penguins gazing up at a sky of shooting stars against an icey mountain background.

Several years ago there was a pair of nail art prompts from one of the challenges that had people painting a spring-type nail art with fall colors and vice versa. I had a lot of fun with the prompt and always thought I’d like to do the same with summer Read More

A turquoise to white thermal nail polish with stamping decals of a mermaid and crab enjoying watermelon and a full-nail watermelon pattern on the thumb.

Oceanic Watermelon Picnic

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

Fruit-themed bright orange nail art with orange slice and orange stamping decals on top.

The Orange-iest

January 22, 2021 Lisa 2

The only way this nail art could get orange-er is if I’d used an orange stamping polish instead of black. Kinda wish I had, but avoiding black stamping is my personal and eternal challenge so I can’t say it really needed it. 😆 I actually painted this one clear back Read More

A New Years mani with a grey background, bright green stamping of winter/spring/summer/fall seasons and "2021" on top.

Seasons of 2021

December 30, 2020 Lisa 2

The new year has generally always held hope of being better than the last one (or worse if life has worn you down that far). I remember thinking 2020 would be better than 2019. hahaha But I think most of us can agree that because of vaccines (and certain elections Read More

Flying at Sunset - Hermit Werds - tropical orange sunset nail art with the silhouette of a kite against the sky

Flying at Sunset

June 21, 2018 Lisa 0

The concept was simple: a kite for #GlamNailsChallenge and a sunset (with “Jamaican Out”) for #beautometrynailchallenge. Somehow I thought I’d be able to finish this nail art more quickly, but I didn’t want to just throw a gradient on my nails. So I found myself using sharpie ink with a Read More

End of Summer Nights - Hermit Werds - young birds playing at night for one last time before summer ends and school begins

End of Summer Nights

August 18, 2017 Lisa 1

Ah, those glorious nights of summer where you get to stay up a little later because you don’t have school the next day. #26GreatNailArtIdeas had a prompt for the End of Summer so I decided to combine it with #NailArtChallengeAugust’s prompt of Stars and set it at night. I had Read More
