Happy Birthday! - Hermit Werds - Halloween-themed happy birthday nail art

October’s Friday the 13th, Black Cat, @Osmovaara

I have three different manicures to share today. I’ve already posted the first two to my Instagram but was too exhausted/busy to write about them more thoroughly. On the other hand, I de-stashed around twenty-five skirts from my closet. It…doesn’t even look like I made a dent. Clearly I’m going Read More

Rainbow Nature – Violet

We’re at the sixth day of the #31DC2017 and hopefully you’ve realized I’m painting on falsies so when my nail shape changes tomorrow it’s not a shock. 😉 I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to paint a recognizable cactus, but I think I made it work. It’s 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

Colorfully in Space - Hermit Werds - When Colours Collide (mint, purple, and black)

Colorfully in Space

I was tempted to play with abstract patterns for the When Colours Collide theme of Mint, Purple and Black, but I’ve also hoarded so many space-themed stamping plates that it was more than time to use them. I love to use my black jelly nail polish and stamp on it Read More

Choosing “Dracula” for my book was definitely low-hanging fruit. Now I kinda wish I’d picked Twilight and abused glitter. Oh, wait. I abused glitter anyway! I’ve really been loving Sinful Color’s Luxe Fragments line. I even have a few more manicures planned using them. The jelly and glitter fragment combo Read More

I have done proper galaxy nails before with all their beautiful gradients and so on. I had a cool idea for this manicure that also would have been different from standard, but I’m already not getting enough sleep as it is. So I decided to save it for later when Read More

Flower - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Flowers

So much of this challenge for me has been to get the manicure done as quickly as possible. (Mind you, I ruined that by using the base color I did. “Fresh Linen” is one of the crappiest formulas out of the Revlon Parfumerie line, but it smells soooo good!) So Read More

Violet - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Violet

I love a good butterfly manicure. Especially the full-wing kind. I tried to keep this manicure as simple as possible because I had a lot of sewing to do for a steampunk convention. Sometimes simple works. I’ve seen people free-hand the wings really well, but I had a stamping plate Read More
