Amber Waves of Grain - Hermit Werds - nail art featuring the sun shining over grain and the American flag

Amber Waves of Grain

July 21, 2017 Lisa 2

The prompt from #26greatnailartideas was Sunshine. So of course I wanted to do a dark nail art with a grain pattern because I like to picture the crops growing up, nourished by the sun and finally being baked dry by it. A kinder, gentler version of a forest fire finally Read More

Wanna Pizza This? - Hermit Werds - pizza themed nail art

Wanna Pizza This?

July 10, 2017 Lisa 4

#nailartchallengejuly had the prompt “Stamping” for today. That’s pretty low hanging fruit and I’ve been wanting to do pizza nails for a while. I also wanted to use Sinful Color’s Stoned Crystal Shimmer “Namaste the Night”. So I picked a few accompanying colors and started stamping. I tried to limit Read More

Strawberry Sweetness - Hermit Werds - Nail Crazies Unite (fruits)

Strawberry Sweetness

June 21, 2017 Lisa 2

I have seen so much strawberry nail art the past two weeks. It’s so awesome and none of them were repeats either. I picked strawberry for my fruit manicure for Nail Crazies Unite and added a frozen treat theme for a slightly late 30 Days of Colour theme. My goal Read More

Delicately Coffee - Hermit Werds - Nail Crazies Unite (Delicate Pattern)

Delicately Coffee

May 20, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this week’s Nail Crazies Unite is Delicate Print. My first thoughts were of feathers and lace, but I wanted to do something different. Instead I thought of the delicate swirls steam makes as it rises from your cup and the text from one of my coffee nail Read More

Applejack Loves Apple Food - Hermit Werds - for My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Season 7

Applejack Loves Apple Food

March 31, 2017 Lisa 6

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 7 will start airing in mid-April! So I thought I’d do separate nail art for each of the mane six since before (here and here) I’ve done group nails. I decided to start with Applejack. This was time-consuming yet simple. I sponged a Read More

A is for Apricot - ABC Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

‘A’ is for Apricot

December 6, 2016 Lisa 0

Yes. I was following the ABC Challenge from the start just…late and silently. I chose apricot for ‘a’, threw polish at it and then proceeded to procrastinate about photographing it until my nails were utterly chipped and ruined. I have gotten so much better at it, but pulling a lazy Read More

B is for Breakfast - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas (winter warmth) - Hermit Werd

‘B’ is for Breakfast

December 1, 2016 Lisa 0

While I was lagging behind the ABC Challenge (and also didn’t have a blog to post in), I chose breakfast as my subject for the letter ‘b’. I wasn’t really happy with the manicure that resulted and also had no idea that I really needed to clean up my edges Read More

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

F is for Food - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘F’ is for Food

August 24, 2016 Lisa 0

Here is another nail art I got out too late to participate in the inLinkz. Plus I had nowhere I wanted to post my nail art back then. I apparently have a thing for food nail art. Whenever I see a nail stamping plate with food on it, I want Read More

P is for Pair - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘P’ is for Pair

August 19, 2016 Lisa 4

I threw around a lot of ideas for the letter ‘p’, everything from penguins to pencils. In the end, I went with word play and decided to do pairs of things starting with ‘p’ with the exception of a single pear. This one took a while. I had a lot Read More
