February Sparkles - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

February Sparkles

February 7, 2017 Lisa 2

Glitter or rhinestones would have fit into the theme of ‘Sparkle’ better, but I needed something simple and I had beautiful holo polishes and a new Uber Chic nail plate that needed love. I knew Color Club’s “Cosmic Fate” would stamp well, but I am happy to say that ILNP’s Read More

Black and White Valentine - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Black & White Valentines

February 5, 2017 Lisa 6

I wanted to stick absolutely to a black and white color scheme so the challenge for me was to play with the finish and figure out what stamps I wanted to use. I finally settled for a water marble-y flower with some heart shapes swirled into it and a bunch Read More

Year of the Rooster - Hermit Werds

Year of the Rooster

February 3, 2017 Lisa 2

This actually has the same base colors as Gone Fishing. I decided I was running out of time and since I wanted to use yellow for the year of the rooster, doing one manicure on each hand all worked out. I did a little reading and the lucky colors for Read More

Gone Fishing - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Gone Fishing

February 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I wore the gradient on my nails for two days because I was too tired to finish this manicure. Pretty pitiful considering how simple this is. It’s nail art that I wanted to do the minute I got my Harunouta plate with the fish images. The way they are clumped Read More

How and Why I Use Habitica

January 29, 2017 Lisa 2

Right now my nails are bare and have been since last night. Ah, the horror! I even have the polishes for my next major manicure pulled out, but I will not be working on it tonight because I have other things that needed to get done more. Booooo! And speaking Read More

Mermaid's Treasure - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds - a bling mermaid mani with pearls and caviar beads.

Mermaid’s Treasure

January 27, 2017 Lisa 6

When I first bought the nail plate I used (WP-30), I had already half-planned out an entire manicure just with it. I loved the scale pattern on the mermaid’s tail most of all (and totally plan on using it in future manicures when I need an organic-looking scale pattern). Combined Read More

31 Day Challenge 2016 - Final

31 Day Challenge – 2016’s Summary – Nail Art

January 24, 2017 Lisa 0

I’ve been meaning to write up this post ever since I finished the challenge. I learned a lot from it. It forced me to keep moving and trying new things. I dotticure-d, used water decals and nail foil, covered a nail completely with rhinestones and water marbled for the first Read More

Red and Pink - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Red and Pink

January 22, 2017 Lisa 6

It’s very close to Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to stay as far away from that theme as possible (not a big fan of the holiday). Then I saw Midnight Stamper’s “Calm” post for a challenge group I had never heard of before and used the group’s over-arching theme (use Read More

The Hedgehog's Fairy Tale - Hermit Werds

The Hedgehog’s Fairy Tale

January 19, 2017 Lisa 2

One of my friends has a hedgehog and he brought her in to work (that’s actually a picture of her below). She was adorable. During our regular morning meeting, she ran around the table from person to person and gave hedgehog love (because he wouldn’t let her disappear up his Read More
