Gears of Rainbow - Hermit Werds - Pastel neon gradient gears for the rainbow steampunk

Gears of Rainbow

August 4, 2017 Lisa 4

Love rainbow, not war! Or something. 🙂 The prompt for #26greatnailartideas was Color Explosion so I decided to stamp with rainbow and gears, hence the butchered gaming reference. A game which has nothing to do with rainbows, sadly. Or clockwork gears. Or steampunk. These nails would work with steampunk if Read More

Waves in Motion - Hermit Werds - iridescent waves on a blue holo background

Waves in Motion

August 3, 2017 Lisa 2

The other nail art prompt that I wanted to cover yesterday was Water for #StampingMasterAugust. Now Jaws had water in it, but it was all painted freehand so it didn’t really fit the name of the group. Plus I had this beautiful stamping plate from CICI & SISI with an Read More

Jaws (NES)

Jaws is not one of the games my parents bought for our Nintendo, but they did rent it for us one of the few times we had a babysitter. I loved it and we did manage to get them to rent it for us one more time. I beat it Read More

Palm Tree INAD (International Nail Art Day) - Hermit Werds - Freehand painted palm trees spelling INAD.

Palm Tree INAD (International Nail Art Day)

August 1, 2017 Lisa 4

International Nail Art Day appears to be on August 3rd as far as I can google, but I posted my mani today since I made it out of palm trees and that is the prompt for today’s #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram. There was also a contest, but I had to post Read More

#TransIsBeautiful #TransIsStrong - Hermit Werds - support the transgender community

#TransIsBeautiful #TransIsStrong

July 31, 2017 Lisa 2

@chelseasnailstory and @ilze_nailed_it organized a show of support from the Instagram nail art community for the trans community. I heard about it the day the image for the collage was due and hurried but I missed being included in it by a few hours. The show of support is much Read More

#origamidaily2007 - Hermit Werds - Origami folded: American Jumping Frog, Large Mouth Bass, and Spring Frog.

#origamidaily2007 – July

July 30, 2017 Lisa 2

I was looking forward to folding the frogs, but I didn’t think I would enjoy this month as much as I did. The fish were a lot of fun and I learned how to swivel pleat (see the fan tail fish’s instructions). The origami I was a little worried about Read More

Day at the Beach

July 28, 2017 Lisa 9

Behold my nail art for Nail Crazie’s Unite “Beach” theme! Yes, I know it’s not terribly original, but I wanted to use my only Anchor & Heart polish (it came in the spring bundle that Turtle Tootsie put together) for the first time and it was perfect for sand. Plus Read More

Primary Tribal Print - Hermit Werds - nail art with red gradient background and metallic aqua tribal stamping

Primary Tribal Print

July 23, 2017 Lisa 2

Color Scheme prompt from #whencolourscollide Facebook group: Red and Blue (only). Stamping prompt from #clairestelle8challenge: Aztec/tribal print. I always feel a little uncomfortable trying to do a culture-based style when I don’t know much about it. And I’m not going to spend a lot of time researching things that aren’t Read More

Amber Waves of Grain - Hermit Werds - nail art featuring the sun shining over grain and the American flag

Amber Waves of Grain

July 21, 2017 Lisa 2

The prompt from #26greatnailartideas was Sunshine. So of course I wanted to do a dark nail art with a grain pattern because I like to picture the crops growing up, nourished by the sun and finally being baked dry by it. A kinder, gentler version of a forest fire finally Read More

Rainbow Holo Glitter Unicorn - Hermit Werds - rainbow glitter naiil art featuring a starry unicorn and unicorn food

Rainbow Holo Glitter Unicorn

July 16, 2017 Lisa 2

Well, I caved and purchased the entire set of Cupcake Polish’s jelly & holo glitter Candy Land collection . It’s been out long enough that she’s no longer selling the set, but I’ve used everything but the strawberry red “Lord Licorice”. I just had to do me some holographic glitter Read More
