One Zentangle a Day – Week 7 (Part 1)

April 18, 2019 Lisa 0

Well, I have some nail art to post, but the collage hasn’t been released yet so I guess you’ll have to settle for some ZIAs. I’ve finished a little over half of the extra exercises from Beckah Krahula’s One Zentangle a Day that I committed to after Week 6 and Read More

Watercolor Cactus

April 11, 2019 Lisa 2

I’ve painted my nails with white gel polish again and it’s time for some of my favorite kind of nail art: watercolor! I painted this one for #AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘C’ is for Cactus prompt, but I missed the collage deadline by minutes because I kept adding more details with the watercolor. Read More

Bremen Town Musicians

July 29, 2018 Lisa 0

Today’s mani is inspired by the classic German fairy tale “Bremen Town Musicians” (retrieved and recorded by the Brothers Grimm). The basic premise is that an elderly donkey, cat, dog, and rooster left their home(s) to go to the city and earn a living as musicians. They drive off a Read More

The only thing that sucks about Read More

Phoenix In Flight

March 9, 2018 Lisa 2

So #clairestelle8 has all mythical creature prompts this month (like /cough unicorn) and that’s pretty hard for me to resist. Happily, I already had designs I wanted to do for most of these beasties, especially the phoenix. I have already painted a few phoenix designs before, but I bought OS-03 Read More

Coffee Cats - Hermit Werds - watercolor nail art of little cats in coffee mugs and a rodent sipping a cup of coffee

Coffee Cats

January 29, 2018 Lisa 2

I’m not sure why but Harunouta seems to think that cats in cups is a very good thing. There are at least six small ones on their stamping plates and one big mug with three kitties. And since I like making colorful coffee nail art I decided to do one Read More

Watercolor Rainbow Trees - Hermit Werds - Nail Crazies Unite

Watercolor Rainbow Trees

May 9, 2017 Lisa 2

The prompt for this week’s Nail Crazies Unite was watercolor. I decided I wanted to use actual watercolors since I have seen Robin Moses use them before. She has a great tutorial on youtube and so I decided to follow it. Her lines are, of course, much better than mine, Read More
