Z is for Zeppelin - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘Z’ is for Zeppelin

December 15, 2016 Lisa 2

I did want to try to get at least one more steampunk nail art in before the year ends, so my topic for the letter ‘z’ was pretty obvious. Zeppelins! I planned this manicure out the same time I did Christmas Preparations. I thought I’d love the other one more 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

Y is for YOLO - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘Y’ is for YOLO (You Obviously Like Owls)

December 2, 2016 Lisa 4

I’ve been reading the comic Questionable Content for several years now. I love his crazy characters (of all sizes), references to an indie music scene I am no part of, and incorporation of AIs into daily life. Back when the phrase ‘YOLO’ (You Only Live Once) was at its peak 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

C is for Crane - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (inspired) - Hermit Werds

‘C’ is for Crane

November 29, 2016 Lisa 2

I’ve followed Cassis P’s YouTube channel for about half a year now and her manicures are always amazing. Her nails are far longer than I could handle and when it comes to nail art she has plenty of canvas to work with. Her nail art mostly focuses on reverse stamping Read More

X is for X-files - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (tv show) - Hermit Werds

‘X’ is for X-Files

November 24, 2016 Lisa 0

I originally wanted to do X-Men, but there really aren’t stamping plates for that and I’ve run out of time to freehand as much as I’d like. So I went with my backup, X-Files, which required less freehanding. ‘X’ will always be a hard letter to get through, but I’ll Read More

W is for Whale - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘W’ is for Whale

November 18, 2016 Lisa 0

I’d wanted to do a Wonder Woman manicure, but I was just too tired and stressed to want to muck about with that much striping tape. So I went back to my list of alternatives for ‘W’ and decided to do whales. Because whales are love and there is not 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

D is for Dinosaur - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘D’ is for Dinosaur

November 1, 2016 Lisa 0

I thought it would be pretty ridiculous to post twice a day while I was working on the 31-day challenge, but now that I’ve slowed down a bit, I thought I’d post this old manicure from the time when I was participating in the ABC Challenge both too late to Read More

U is for Undead - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (supernatural) - Hermit Werds

U is for Undead

October 31, 2016 Lisa 0

My first plan was to go for unicorn to cover both Supernatural and the letter ‘u’, but it was still October, so I decided to go with undead. I had a plate with shamble-y type people and several more with scenery. but since I’d already done a night-scape, I decided Read More
