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

All the Sushi(s)

August 6, 2017 Lisa 0

If someone were to say Travel Dreams to me, one of the my first thoughts would be to fly to Japan and eat all of the sushi. I’d visit the gardens and eat lots of other foods, but I’m pretty sure my first task would be to fill my belly Read More

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
