V is for Vixen - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘V’ is for Vixen

November 11, 2016 Lisa 2

Squeaking in at the last minute, but I’ve been both perpetually tired and working on more arts and craft stuff this month. I painted the base colors earlier in the week and then just never finished the manicure. By the time I finished the manicure tonight I had to start Read More

D is for Dinosaur - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘D’ is for Dinosaur

November 1, 2016 Lisa 0

I thought it would be pretty ridiculous to post twice a day while I was working on the 31-day challenge, but now that I’ve slowed down a bit, I thought I’d post this old manicure from the time when I was participating in the ABC Challenge both too late to Read More

U is for Undead - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (supernatural) - Hermit Werds

U is for Undead

October 31, 2016 Lisa 0

My first plan was to go for unicorn to cover both Supernatural and the letter ‘u’, but it was still October, so I decided to go with undead. I had a plate with shamble-y type people and several more with scenery. but since I’d already done a night-scape, I decided Read More

Japan’s Flag

October 27, 2016 Lisa 0

Halloween is too close and instead of finishing the manicure for Inspired by Artwork and not getting to enjoy it long enough, I’ve decided to skip it for now and do a quick manicure for Inspired by a Flag. I kept it simple with a white background for all and Read More

Abalone - 31 Day Challenge (pattern) - Hermit Werds

Abalone

October 25, 2016 Lisa 0

So I’ve done nail stamping with nail foil (see here) and so I thought I’d do a full nail and surely it would be easy too. That turned out to be a hot mess. If I had reviewed how to do it I might have been fine, but I did Read More

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
