Well, I’m not sure when this is going to post since it’s been a few days and the collage hasn’t been released yet. Ah, the chaos of the holidays. 🙂 This is my first time participating in the #theinspirationchallenge on Instagram where someone is asked to pick a cool image Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – Christmas Stamping Plates

December 5, 2017 Lisa 0

Press Sample I apparently needed a mental break on top of spending the weekend with family. Well, today I am back with four different nail designs as I explore the possibilities and quality of the stamping plates Beauty BigBang sent to me (I will do a review for the sequins Read More

Endangered Elephants

I certainly meant to have this come out yesterday (esp since I’ve already posted it to Instagram), but I guess that wasn’t in the cards. So this is my first post of the day and there will be another around noon MT. I live in America so elephants have definitely Read More

Pegasus

November 27, 2017 Lisa 0

Since I’d already painted a Phoenix and a unicorn this month I decided to tackle a different Mythical Creature for this month’s #NailsWithIgFriends hosted by Christine (@shortywhatwhat). I ran through a few classics, but I’ve already done dragons a few times as well. So I thought I would tackle Pegasus Read More

Thankfully Purple - Hermit Werds - creepy critters stamped on a holographic purple cat's eye magnetic background

Morbid Thankfulness

November 20, 2017 Lisa 0

I love both of my stepkids but, since this is about nail art and my stepson is no longer into getting his nails did, I’m thankful that my stepdaughter still wants to play. And also that she mostly wants her nails to be sparkly purple with spooky things on top. Read More

Gudetama - Hermit Werds - Sanrio's Gudetama water decals on a white background

Gudetama

November 5, 2017 Lisa 0

I love Gudetama. If you’re not familiar with him, he’s a character owned by Sanrio (i.e. Hello Kitty!) that appears in short animated videos played in Japan. He is a very lazy egg and doesn’t want to get up. They’re really cute videos as long as you don’t watch them Read More

Lady Death

October 5, 2017 Lisa 2

My thought this month was that I would let my cindy hand have fancy nails, but I would paint gel on top of it so I could work on my left hand without destroying it too quickly (I have a cotten ball holder, but I never seem to use it). Read More

Star Wars - Hermit Werds - simple nail art featuring Star Wars' dark side

Star Wars and Gardening Book

September 26, 2017 Lisa 0

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I Read More

Girl in a Leopard Print Bikini - Hermit Werds - sexy pin-up style Betty Paige inspired nails

The Girl in the Leopard Print Bikini

September 13, 2017 Lisa 2

I really admire the whole vintage Bettie Page-esque look. I occasionally come close to wearing it, but I am too lazy with hair and makeup (and my hair is too long). So I was really excited when #firedazedsept2017 included a Bettie Page prompt. Since I had to combine it with Read More

Ride the Carousel - Hermit Werds - Carousel animals at the circus

Ride the Carousel

August 17, 2017 Lisa 2

I adore carousels. I still have a calendar that is over a decade old, but I won’t let go of it because it has carousel horses. I have a cross-stitch that is even older than the calendar that’s about halfway finished. I work on it every couple of years. Maybe Read More
