A few years ago, I made the mistake of working for a craft supply store. It was full of things that I wanted to buy and I wasn’t making enough money to buy anything. Indeed I was slowly getting into more debt. Fortunately, I managed to get a job that Read More

Phoenix Rising - Hermit Werds - false nails depicting the death and rebirth cycle of a phoenix

Phoenix Rising

@kassnailedit decided to run a collab for her birthday with a Phoenix theme. It sounded like a lot of fun, so I jumped on the chance. I even learned something I did not know about Instagram: apparently you can only have fifteen people at once in a chat channel. I Read More

The Love Vine - Hermit Werds - pink stampings of hearts, vines and 'love' on a yellow flakie background

The Love Vine

November 17, 2017 Lisa 1

Sometimes I just want to paint a heavily yellow nail design on my nails. That’s the driving force behind this mani, because with both of the prompts I’m covering today, I could have done anything. This is the first time I have purchased a yellow polish that isn’t basically a Read More

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 0

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 1

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
