Elegant Peacock - Hermit Werds - blue and green metallic peacock stamping with black

Elegant Peacock and Neutrally Scientific

November 3, 2017 Lisa 2

I do love the coloring of a peacock. If I couldn’t choose rainbow as my favorite color, I’d probably have to pick peacock. It’s a testament to how much nail art I want to do that I have only labeled one other nail art as peacock, but it’s still a Read More

The Turning Leaves and Classically Halloween - Hermit Werds - flakie leaves and classic Halloween costumes

Classically Halloween and The Changing Leaves

October 31, 2017 Lisa 2

I have two manicures to share with you today and there will be another post tonight. To start, I thought it would be nice to paint my poor cindy hand again. It still weirds me out that my nails are so short and I haven’t been taking care of them Read More

The Langoliers - Hermit Werds - past-eating Langoliers from Stephen King's story and movie chasing the plane

The Langoliers

October 28, 2017 Lisa 4

I binge on Stephen King for a while and and then not pick up a book by him for years. He’s such an amazing storyteller, but he does tend to kill a lot of his characters and I tend to like a different kind of world building. LOL (Someday, however, Read More

Black Cat V 2.0 - Hermit Werds - purple/gold background with black cats in negative space

Black Cat V 2.0 and Pink Villainy

October 27, 2017 Lisa 1

This black cat nail art is for #26GreatNailArtIdeas Halloween w/Negative Space. I was going to do something more complex, but then I asked myself, “Why am I making my life hard right now?” And the answer is that sometimes I think if I don’t struggle I’m not doing a good Read More

Vampy Matte - Hermit Werds - burgundy holographic matte mani with silver nail shield and glossy stamping

Vampy Matte

October 20, 2017 Lisa 3

This is the last prompt from #NailCraziesUnite’s year-long prompt list so I decided to use one of the vampy-est polishes that I own: Cupcake Polish’s “Blood Hound”. But it’s cruel to rob a holographic polish of all of its holo-ness, so I stamped with a little bit of glossy polish Read More

Cemetery Roses - Hermit Werds - cemetery with skull and rose vines gone wild

Cemetery Roses

October 4, 2017 Lisa 0

I usually avoid mixing freehand with stamping because the line quality typically ends up being too different. I think I got away with it this time. Maybe. This nail art comes from the blend of #clairestelle8challenge’s Cemetery prompt and #firedazedoct2017’s Skulls and Roses prompt. Huh. Maybe I should have pluralled Read More

Cat Memories - Hermit Werds - black kitty against an orange smoosh marble.

Cat Memories

September 23, 2017 Lisa 2

Last Wednesday, my cat swarmed up over the fence after another cat and went missing for several days. I spent a lot of time knocking on doors, hanging up signs, and wandering around the neighborhood at 2 AM in the morning. After five days of wondering she finally showed up Read More

Black Heart-ed Floral - Hermit Werds - Nail art featuring Dark Heart brand nail polish (Hot Topic) in a water marble with floral stamping on top.

Black Heart-ed Floral

September 20, 2017 Lisa 4

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

Teal and Orange - Hermit Werds - teal and orange half moon floral stamping

Orange and Teal

September 18, 2017 Lisa 2

So today is half moon day on #31DC2017 and it’s also the day that we’re supposed to be able to publicly release our nail art for #WhenColoursCollide from FB. This is a case where I didn’t have the color I wanted to stamp with and I tried finding a white Read More

Silver Pheasant - Hermit Werds - natural quail feathers on nails

Silver Pheasant

September 15, 2017 Lisa 2

Just as I was getting into nail art sticking feathers onto your nails was starting to be a trend (as far as I can tell). I never did it. So I thought what could be more delicate and fall-like than pheasant feathers which I already have? So I stuck these Read More
