Lady of the Bees

Originally, I was planning on an orange mani for #31DC2017 (Inspired by a Color). But the greatest number of untried polishes I have seems to be in the pink/red family so I picked Colores de Carol’s “Cupid’s Vacation” for my inspiration. It’s this gorgeous pink holographic polish with a few Read More

September 20, 2017 Lisa 2

This nail art is over a month old. I have been saving it for a day when I needed something to fill the slot but then I did so many challenges last month that I never used it. Now is the prefect time since I need a water marble for Read More

So today is half moon day on #31DC2017 and it’s also the day that we’re supposed to be able to publicly release our nail art for #WhenColoursCollide from FB. This is a case where I didn’t have the color I wanted to stamp with and I tried finding a white Read More

Floral Fairies

September 14, 2017 Lisa 2

For as long as I can remember, I have seen artists drawing fairies with clothing made from flowers. So when #nailsunitedseptchallenge had a prompt for Fairy coinciding directly with the flower prompt for #31DC2017, well, there was only one thing to do. So I did it on a beautiful thermal Read More

I thought through some of my plans poorly so today’s nail art ended up having to be a water decal. I did, however, use nail polish to trace around it. It’s a look I’ve always admired on others and it probably took more time for me to do everything than Read More

Sunflower Farming - Hermit Werds - sunflower farm with scarecrow and barn

Sunflower Farming

After painting some post-apocalyptic scenery earlier in the week, I guess it was time for some cute nail art. I returned to Sunflowers with the prompt from #NailCraziesUnite and added Farm Friends from #FireDazedAugust. I was really excited to use my farming nail plate from UberChic, but the one from Read More

One White Base, Four Summer Looks - Hermit Werds - Four different summer looks created on a white gel base

One White Base, Four Summer Looks

August 16, 2017 Lisa 5

I haven’t had a new blog post in two days, but believe me I’ve been keeping busy (or you can check my instagram account if you need proof). I was watching one of Jessface90‘s polish swatching videos and she made a remark about her white gel base starting to peel Read More

Accidental Turtle - Hermit Werds

Accidental Turtle

June 30, 2017 Lisa 4

This nail art is for the Nail Crazies Unite theme of neon. I meant for it to be green and yellow, but the stamping plates I picked have very shallow etchings and even Mundo de Unas wasn’t opaque enough for the neon yellow to not turn into a bright-est green. Read More

Nude and Neon - Hermit Werds - Colours Collide (Nude and Neon)

Nude and Neon

May 14, 2017 Lisa 0

This nail art was for the When Colours Collide challenge group. The limitation to this was that you could only use two neon colors along with your nude color. I decided to go with neon green and neon yellow and that I wanted some negative space too. Then I decided Read More

Origami from April - Hermit Werds

#origamidaily2007 – End of April

May 2, 2017 Lisa 2

So I decided to fold these origami groupings once a month or so instead of trying to get it all done at once. I have enough to last until the end of the year. I definitely fell behind in my intentions, but no one called me on so I guess Read More
