The Parasol Collector - Hermit Werds - a series of parasol decals and a victorian lady on a blue and green smoosh marble

The Parasol Collector

November 15, 2017 Lisa 0

This was a combination of prompts: #WhenColoursCollide’s Blue and Green only, #GlamNailsChallenge’s Umbrella, and #GgfNaChallenge’s Steampunk. I haven’t really be following #Ggf, but steampunk! I am not sure I really covered that even though I did use parasols instead of umbrellas and a Victorian lady (whom I have used before). Read More

Storming Upward - Hermit Werds - progressive look upward of the sky on a rainy day

Storming Upward

November 13, 2017 Lisa 4

I would love to do a cloud manicure in unnatural colors, but today I thought I’d tackle a different idea: upward progression. We start at ground level with my index finger and head upwards from there until we see the stars that live above the clouds. I was afraid this Read More

Face Worms - Hermit Werds - periwinkle mustache background with darker blue emo mustache stamping

Face Worms

November 12, 2017 Lisa 0

You’ll forgive the title. We’re obviously talking about mustaches here and I think they are great. My husband curls his and everything and he’s at least five times more handsome with it. So why did I call them Face Worms? Well, I finished Drown by Esther Dalseno a few weeks Read More

Green Giraffe - Hermit Werds - holographic green mani with a giraffe and green giraffe animal print

Green Giraffe

November 10, 2017 Lisa 2

This prompt brought to you by my need to use alliteration. Oh, and the prompt Animal Print in the Wrong Colors for #26GreatNailArtIdeas (and also the Nail Challenge Collaborative’s similar month-long theme), the letter ‘G’, and the color green. Obviously. No, seriously, I was going to do a pink tiger Read More

Sharon's Feathers - Hermit Werds - greyscale feather stamping, design by @sharnailstar

Sharon’s Feathers

November 9, 2017 Lisa 0

Did you think I was done posting nail art today? Oh, you are mistaken because it is @sharnailstar’s birthday and @dianavnisselroy organized a birthday collage for her. The theme was to do a greyscale version of one of Sharon’s nail art designs. I searched around for something that spoke to Read More

Lacey Pink - Hermit Werds - pond manicure with pink polish and lace stamping

Lacey Pink

November 9, 2017 Lisa 2

I decided it was time to use my last untried Zoya polish. So when #clairestelle8challenge came up with a lace prompt, I said “Let’s see how this works with a pond mani.” I think it worked well. I slathered on a layer of “Paloma”, stamped the netting pattern, more jelly, Read More

Squirrel Park - Hermit Werds - a squirrel under the trees on a green background

Squirrel Park

November 8, 2017 Lisa 2

Squirrel! Forever connected with the movie Up! I also have a bizarre story about a squirrel ripping through a hawk’s body like an Alien when it tried to have squirrel lunch living in my head too. That part is a less universally known story and probably shouldn’t have been mentioned Read More

Aug/Sept/Oct Favorites - Hermit Werds

Three Months of Favorites (Aug, Sept, Oct)

November 7, 2017 Lisa 4

Yesterday we talked about my nail art goals for the next two months. Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy the work that is done before we dive back into working again. I tried to split my favorites between nail art I had freehanded and nail art with tools. Read More

#nailgoals - Hermit Werds - A nail saying "#nailgoals" defiantly flipping off the challenge of goals.

#NailGoals Nov 2017 and Look Back

November 6, 2017 Lisa 3

Didn’t I tell you guys that I’m terrible at noticing landmark moments? We passed the 200 blog posts mark a few posts ago and I missed it!  Other things you might be missing if you don’t follow my Instagram feed is that I posted images with my monthly favorites for Read More

Gudetama - Hermit Werds - Sanrio's Gudetama water decals on a white background

Gudetama

November 5, 2017 Lisa 0

I love Gudetama. If you’re not familiar with him, he’s a character owned by Sanrio (i.e. Hello Kitty!) that appears in short animated videos played in Japan. He is a very lazy egg and doesn’t want to get up. They’re really cute videos as long as you don’t watch them Read More
