Green Giraffe

November 10, 2017 Lisa 2

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

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

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

Candy Land Candies - Hermit Werd - holographic candy decals on a black gel base

One Black Base – Four Looks

August 24, 2017 Lisa 2

I bought two gel “colors” and since we’ve already done a bunch of white nail art, I thought it was time to do some nail art on a black reusable base. Sadly, these aren’t very thematic since we’re at the end of the month and I’m just scrambling to finish Read More

The theme for this #whencolourscollide challenge was purple. So I decided to use both of UberChic’s The Far East plates and do some simple stamping on top of glitter and holographic. Really the most difficult part is that my nails are long enough that it’s harder to stamp a full Read More

Waves in Motion - Hermit Werds - iridescent waves on a blue holo background

The other nail art prompt that I wanted to cover yesterday was Water for #StampingMasterAugust. Now Jaws had water in it, but it was all painted freehand so it didn’t really fit the name of the group. Plus I had this beautiful stamping plate from CICI & SISI with an Read More

#TransIsBeautiful #TransIsStrong - Hermit Werds - support the transgender community

@chelseasnailstory and @ilze_nailed_it organized a show of support from the Instagram nail art community for the trans community. I heard about it the day the image for the collage was due and hurried but I missed being included in it by a few hours. The show of support is much Read More
