MerMay seems to be more of a traditional/digital artist thing because I haven’t really seen any of the nail challenges acknowledge it for a few years. Luckily the Saucy Mani Squad was looking for prompt suggestions for May and June and I was watching the group chat at the right Read More

Dramatic purple rose nail art with a magnetic purple polish peeking out from negative space rose patterns and token butterflies.

Magnetic Purple Roses

Today’s look is brought to you by the color purple, the subject roses, and the strange feeling that we kiiiinda posted something similar not so long ago. However, the use (finally) of a purple magnetic polish I’ve had for years hopefully brings enough of a different element to this so Read More

Here we are: my last catchup post from the move. The #AZ prompt this time was ‘I’ is for Italy. I thought about going with food since I definitely had the stamping plates for it, but I had already painted food with the France prompt. I also pretty much never Read More

Beautiful berry mani with a textured accent nail + silver snowflake nail charm offset by stamping decals of scary bloody snowmen.

Scary Snowmen

It’s time for a non-catch up post where we celebrate Halloween (again) as if it’s happening all year because why not. This month’s prompt was Frosty the Scary Man and I had a lot of ideas that were too ambitious for my current energy levels. Like…I could feel myself procrastinating Read More

A witchy Valentine's Day nail art w/stamping decals of a cute witch brewing up a love potion with lots of hearts on a lilac flakie polish.

Hocus Pocus

Once upon a time I painted a love potion-esque nail art. It was pre-blog and there was pink. I can even wave the stamping plate I used uselessly in the air. You can’t see it because this isn’t a video, but all the parts are there. Anyway, I sadly cannot Read More

Gothic Purple Spiders

Luckily or not, I stopped posting last year before I stopped painting. So let’s start with a little catch-up with a super purple and lacy mani I painted for @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘G’ is for Gothic prompt. I wanted purple because black just felt too typical and Maniology keeps going with dark Read More

A magenta-purple mani with tons of blue and magenta flakies with a wee little smiling banana stamping decal.

Banana-rama

January 27, 2021 Lisa 2

There was a time when I was making myself a green smoothie every day and my home was full of the overripe bananas from the store because I could get them cheaper that way. And while bananas were thriftily in all of them, I was making the real deal green Read More

Three monochrome Christmas manis in purple, blue, and yellow.

Rainbow Christmas part 1

January 10, 2020 Lisa 0

The holiday season sapped my blogging energy and so I find myself with two designs that were posted on Instagram in December and one that was not. All three are from the #pantone2019winterchallenge and ended up being monochromatic. I rather like the theme and think I will finish it when Read More

Going Batty - Hermit Werds - purple glitter-filled jelly nails with white bat nail stamping on top

Going Batty – BBB Review BBB-001 stamping plate

October 11, 2018 Lisa 1

[press sample] This is it! My final Beauty BigBang review for the month. Today we’re looking at BBB-001, a circle plate with four full-nail images and four smaller images. They’re all quite fun, but since I was going to create a full look with them, I decided to stick to Read More

Thankfully Halloween - Hermit Werds - purple magnetic polish with spooky stamping (spider, ghouls, bats, haunted house) on top

Thankfully Halloween

September 24, 2018 Lisa 0

I’m back with one of my recreations of last year’s designs that I wasn’t happy with. I’ve skipped around to return to a purple magnetic polish look that I made to express my thankfulness on how much I enjoy painting nails with my stepdaughter who often asks for Halloween stamps. Read More
