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

Elegant Peacock - Hermit Werds - blue and green metallic peacock stamping with black

Elegant Peacock and Neutrally Scientific

November 3, 2017 Lisa 2

I do love the coloring of a peacock. If I couldn’t choose rainbow as my favorite color, I’d probably have to pick peacock. It’s a testament to how much nail art I want to do that I have only labeled one other nail art as peacock, but it’s still a Read More

Dragon Quilt and Vampiric Snacking

September 29, 2017 Lisa 0

Through lots and lots of swatches, stamping, and trimming, we have achieved a dragon quilt which covers both the #AZNailArtChallenge (quilt), the last prompt from #FireDazedChallengeSept (dragon), and #26GreatNailArtIdeas (Your Signature Style). What do I consider to be my signature style? Too much of too much. LOL I painted these Read More

Can't Hug Every Cat - Hermit Werds - chevrons and kitties playing instruments to the song Can't Hug Every Cat

Can’t Hug Every Cat

September 22, 2017 Lisa 4

I was going to do a different song for #31DC2017 Inspired by a Song, but with my cat’s brief disappearance this month, I am a little obsessed with cats right now. Plus, I’ve loved this song ever since one of my co-workers added it to our group playlist. Can’t Hug Read More

Spaaace Pirates - Hermit Werds - galaxy-bound pirates and their ships in the stars

Spaaace Pirates!

September 18, 2017 Lisa 0

There’s no second prompt this time, guys, it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! So since I had to do a galaxy mani, I decided to do space pirates! I had originally meant to use the background for Animaniac’s Rita and Runt but I needed to also add glitter to the Read More

Blind Men and a Kirin - Hermit Werds - collaged kirin anatomy: antler, chest, back, tail, and leg

Blind Men and a Kirin

September 1, 2017 Lisa 0

So what do you do if you’re me and you have Unicorns (#ggfnachallenge) and Oriental (#AZNailArtChallenge) prompts for your last nail art of the year? You decide to paint a kirin of course and theme it along the tale of the Blind Men and an Elephant. And then instead of Read More

2 Cwl 4 Skwl

August 18, 2017 Lisa 2

I really wanted to participate in this month’s #NailAddictsCollab. The theme was 2 Cwl 4 Skwl and since you’re supposed to include a bit about why you chose your subject, I really thought about what I wanted to say. At first I wanted to paint Bart Simpson nails because he Read More

Pirate Booty - Hermit Werds - navy pirate-themed nails with treasure

Pirate’s Booty

August 11, 2017 Lisa 2

Inspired by the “Show me your booty” quote on UberChic’s Mermaid Life plate. Truthfully, I was tempted to paint an actual booty on my nails, but I had the #NailCraziesUnite prompt of Nautical so I stuck with pirates and used the #NailArtChallengeAugust prompt of Navy to set the color scheme. Read More

Purple Dragon - Hermit Werds - eastern dragon in purple on a with a cloud pattern and mix of matte and shiny finishes

Purple Dragon

August 6, 2017 Lisa 0

The theme for this #whencolourscollide challenge was purple. So I decided to use both of UberChic’s The Far East plates and do some simple stamping on top of glitter and holographic. Really the most difficult part is that my nails are long enough that it’s harder to stamp a full Read More

The Little Mermaid v2 - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8challenge (book/movie)

The Little Mermaid v2

June 29, 2017 Lisa 1

Sometimes it happens. You finish your nail art and after staring at it for a day, the thing that’s missing eats at you until you have to do something about it. And my pinkie and ring finger were too plain. I had to fix it. Luckily there were a few Read More
