Steampunk Fashion - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Steampunk Fashion

October 24, 2016 Lisa 0

I usually plan these challenges out way ahead of time so ideas for my subject can percolate in the back of my brain for a while, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the topic of fashion. Initially I was going to keep it simple with Read More

Dracula - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (book) - Hermit Werds

Dracula

October 23, 2016 Lisa 0

Choosing “Dracula” for my book was definitely low-hanging fruit. Now I kinda wish I’d picked Twilight and abused glitter. Oh, wait. I abused glitter anyway! I’ve really been loving Sinful Color’s Luxe Fragments line. I even have a few more manicures planned using them. The jelly and glitter fragment combo Read More

Beetlejuice - 31 Day Challenge (movie) - Hermit Werds

BeetleJuice

October 22, 2016 Lisa 0

I remember when Beetlejuice came out. It was a pretty fun movie, but not a favorite of mine. I did, however, watch the cartoon quite faithfully (though I cannot really remember any particular episode to this day, just the sandworms). And then I heard this year that Tim Burton wouldn’t Read More

Nightmare Before Christmas - 31 Day Challenge (song) - Hermit Werds

Nightmare Before Christmas

October 21, 2016 Lisa 0

So I’ve been trying to pick subjects that also fit in with Halloween and since Beetlejuice isn’t really known for a particular song, I opted for “Nightmare Before Christmas” as my song. That movie has sooo many good songs. I, however, was also limited by my lazy and the stamping Read More

T is for TIme - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (color) - Hermit Werds

‘T’ is for Time

October 20, 2016 Lisa 4

I’ve been sick for the last couple of days and on top of being a tired of the pace I was keeping up (I don’t know how the other bloggers who have managed this for several years in a row don’t burn out), I neglected my blog for a bit Read More

Watermarble - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Water Marble

October 17, 2016 Lisa 0

I was very tempted to cheat on this. I have never done any sort of water marbling before and I do have several nail plates with images for it on them. But I have watched videos on how to do and I knew I was just being a lazy coward, Read More

Galaxy - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Galaxy

October 16, 2016 Lisa 0

I have done proper galaxy nails before with all their beautiful gradients and so on. I had a cool idea for this manicure that also would have been different from standard, but I’m already not getting enough sleep as it is. So I decided to save it for later when Read More

Half Moon - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Half Moons

October 15, 2016 Lisa 0

Half moon manicures are just not something I do very often. And I will get bored of my nails before they grow out so I don’t benefit from that particular advantage either. I have seen some amazing manicures with them, but for the most part they don’t do anything for Read More

Glitter Skeletons - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Glitter Skeletons

October 14, 2016 Lisa 0

Red glitter is delicious low-hanging visual fruit. Especially for Halloween. My new Halloween nail plates had arrived so I had my choice in what images to throw on top of it. The expressions on the faces of the skulls on DXE18 were adorable, so I chose to feature one of Read More

Geometric Kiwi Bird - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Geometric Kiwi

October 13, 2016 Lisa 0

I’ve had this particular manicure planned for a while. Pretty much ever since I purchased the KD-SM612-002 plate from ebay. They are acrylic so I was pretty hesitant to buy them at first. I started with buying the plate I used today because I was quite enamored of that little Read More
