I’ve had these on my nails for three days and I’m only now photographing and posting them. Ah, I’ve gotten so lazy. That’s a lie. Yesterday I rearranged a bunch of things in my workroom because that’s what my heart wanted to do most. I’m really liking the changes. I’m Read More

I actually had this done in time to post on Friday, but I was too busy running around or being tired from running around to write all this out. The prompt from 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Christmas Childhood Memories. I wasn’t raised religious so that took out all Read More

For some reason this feels like a mani I have done before, but apparently I have not. LOL Maybe it’s because I kept getting the wrong balance of colors and had to repaint my ornaments a few times. I still kind of wonder if I shouldn’t have stuck to a Read More

Fall Unicorn - Hermit Werds - plump fall unicorn mid-leap on holographic autumn-colored gradient background

Unicorn of Fall

It’s unicorn time again and so it is also time to bring out my lovely Cupcake holo glitter polishes. This time it was for a fall gradient so I had to supplement the strawberry red and yellow with an orange and a bright green. Fortunately my holo collection has grown Read More

Green Giraffe - Hermit Werds - holographic green mani with a giraffe and green giraffe animal print

Green Giraffe

This prompt brought to you by my need to use alliteration. Oh, and the prompt Animal Print in the Wrong Colors for #26GreatNailArtIdeas (and also the Nail Challenge Collaborative’s similar month-long theme), the letter ‘G’, and the color green. Obviously. No, seriously, I was going to do a pink tiger Read More

Animal Abuse Awareness - Hermit Werds - Animal Abuse Awareness stamping over purple/black holographic water marble

Animal Abuse Awareness

October 18, 2017 Lisa 0

I decided to combine #WhenColoursCollide’s prompt of Holographic and Black Water Marble with #nailaddictscollab’s Claws for a Cause where you could paint your nails with whatever cause was close to your heart. So naturally I picked animals because people are both amazingly good and brave and barely worth the air 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

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

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

Geometric Autumn - Hermit Werds - geometric autumn patterns on chameleon holo powder

Geometric Autumn

September 15, 2017 Lisa 2

Well, I finally dug out my Born Pretty Chameleon Holo Flakes Powder pot and some no-light gels and top coat to see if I could make it work. Results were patchy and I really, really hate the black. It’s gotten very goopy very quickly and takes three coats for full Read More
