It’s Raining Fish

So, yeah. I’m behind. Between playing Don’t Starve (the old distraction, which I haven’t even touched once for over 24 hours /sob) and moving my blog and breaking it (the new distraction, shoot me), I missed a few prompts from #nailartchallenge. Namely Fish and Umbrella. I figure my previous prompt Read More

I think #NailArtChallenge’s Blue/Purple prompt is the perfect time to share this mani. This is not the first time that Born Pretty’s gorgeous Chameleon Cat’s Eye 24 appeared on this blog. In fact, what you are seeing right now is the same application of the polish. Hey, it’s a gel. Read More

We’re at the fifth day of the #31DC2017 and I’m still hopeful about keeping up. Lot of blog posts though, so I am sorry if this is brief. I know a lily pond is probably a pretty typical nature subject–I mean, I’ve done a lily pond manicure before and it’s Read More

#NailsWithIgFriends is a group that has just one prompt a month and the person in charge of the prompt and the collage at the end changes each month. This was my first month participating and @nailcraftaddict was running the show and picked Arctic Wildlife. Now being me I kinda wanted Read More

Sir Ariana Cormorant gestured for the standby signal flags to be run up. The island was inhabited. The bright red and orange coloring of the mermaid made that clear enough. She was the obvious lookout considering everything about her had been engineered. Ariana’s eyes narrowed as she swept her spy Read More

The other nail art prompt that I wanted to cover yesterday was Water for #StampingMasterAugust. Now Jaws had water in it, but it was all painted freehand so it didn’t really fit the name of the group. Plus I had this beautiful stamping plate from CICI & SISI with an Read More

Jaws is not one of the games my parents bought for our Nintendo, but they did rent it for us one of the few times we had a babysitter. I loved it and we did manage to get them to rent it for us one more time. I beat it Read More

Behold my nail art for Nail Crazie’s Unite “Beach” theme! Yes, I know it’s not terribly original, but I wanted to use my only Anchor & Heart polish (it came in the spring bundle that Turtle Tootsie put together) for the first time and it was perfect for sand. Plus Read More

Cute Waters

I love doing manis with ocean life. And I’ve been doing a lot of serious-looking nail art lately so it’s time to switch it up for a bit. I did this for Nail Crazies Unite Ocean Life theme. I had some super cute patterns on CICI & SISI’s Children’s Park Read More

View of the Beach - Hermit Werds - #26greatnailartideas (beach or animal silhouettes)

View of the Beach

July 7, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was beach or animal silhouettes. My brain immediately turned ‘or’ into ‘and’. Challenge accepted. I took my stampings and carefully removed most of the details to get a very basic shape. Then I colored on the outside instead of the inside Read More
