Bridge to the Heavens

My nail art has been much simpler lately due to both time and challenge prompt constraints, but this design is as extra as I get using 9 polishes, 5 stamping plates, and 11 advanced stamping decals (for just one hand). You’ll understand why when you see the prompt image that Read More

Don’t Drink and Fly

I’m not terribly great at fluid art just yet, but the colors blending together on today’s nail art just make my heart so happy. Also the witch falling off her broom is pretty hilarious. Ah, the joy of the suffering of others. 🤣 Products Used Fluid Art Polishes: Celestial Cosmetics’ Read More

Today I have Unicorns for #GlamNailsChallengeFeb. This is possibly the first time I’ve posted a prompt on time for this challenge in many, many weeks. Ah, well. That’s what getting sick does to you. I almost turned this in for #WhenColoursCollide’s yellow/orange/red theme, but then I realized there were gold Read More

Galactic Snowstorm - Hermit Werds - purple, magenta, and blue galaxy nail art with snow flakes, sparkly glitter, and astronaut rabbit, polar bear, and penguin stamping decals

Galactic Snowstorm – featuring Born Pretty Christmas-L005

Someone had a galactic challenge prompt (that I missed) and two other challenges had snowflake prompts (that I’m late for) and the stamping plate I used today had this lovely combination of both. And so I found myself painting classic galaxy nails even though I’ve said several times that I’m Read More

Coffee is Love

We can’t let the month end without some coffee nail art, can we? No, no we can’t. Not even if we had done tea nails, which we should certainly do soon. Caffeine is the best drug ever. Even sugar isn’t as close to my heart because sugar does not help Read More

Hobbies of the Red Queen - Hermit Werds - freehand paintings of the Red Queen's hobbies in black and red: croquet, baking tarts, collecting red things and ordering executions

Hobbies of the Red Queen

February 26, 2018 Lisa 4

#NailCraziesUnite’s latest prompt is Red and Black Hobbies. I was rather stumped on this one since I didn’t feel like doing more nail art on reading and that’s my second major hobby. So… It was time to defeat my tendency to get mentally stuck on what I don’t want to Read More

I’ve been meaning to use these images for years and apparently this was the month. Sushi Cats! I am trying out a new (for me) challenge #AdultsColoringBookNails (Your Favorite Pet). I think these turned out rather well even though I used a glossy top coat and had a really hard Read More
