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

Decopunk Pink - Hermit Werds - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas (pink, lilac + gold)

Decopunk Pink

May 27, 2017 Lisa 1

Steampunk has been around long enough that people are already branching out to include eras outside of the Victorian age. One of those time periods is the 20s during the art deco movement. I looove Art Deco art. Conveniently, Moyou London has already acknowledged this and many other steampunk branches Read More

Delicately Coffee - Hermit Werds - Nail Crazies Unite (Delicate Pattern)

Delicately Coffee

May 20, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this week’s Nail Crazies Unite is Delicate Print. My first thoughts were of feathers and lace, but I wanted to do something different. Instead I thought of the delicate swirls steam makes as it rises from your cup and the text from one of my coffee nail Read More

Nude and Neon - Hermit Werds - Colours Collide (Nude and Neon)

Nude and Neon

May 14, 2017 Lisa 0

This nail art was for the When Colours Collide challenge group. The limitation to this was that you could only use two neon colors along with your nude color. I decided to go with neon green and neon yellow and that I wanted some negative space too. Then I decided Read More

Rarity Loves Fashion - Hermit Werds - My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Season 7

Rarity Loves Fashion

April 3, 2017 Lisa 4

I’m continuing my series of the mane six manis to celebrate My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 7 airing in mid-April with Rarity! She and I both have a love of fashion (although her love is mainstream and mine tends to be niche). I used the second half of Read More

Applejack Loves Apple Food - Hermit Werds - for My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Season 7

Applejack Loves Apple Food

March 31, 2017 Lisa 6

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 7 will start airing in mid-April! So I thought I’d do separate nail art for each of the mane six since before (here and here) I’ve done group nails. I decided to start with Applejack. This was time-consuming yet simple. I sponged a Read More

Red and Pink - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Red and Pink

January 22, 2017 Lisa 6

It’s very close to Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to stay as far away from that theme as possible (not a big fan of the holiday). Then I saw Midnight Stamper’s “Calm” post for a challenge group I had never heard of before and used the group’s over-arching theme (use Read More

New Year, New You - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

New Year, New You

January 9, 2017 Lisa 0

As weird as it for me to believe, today is the first time I’ve stamped anything onto may nails this year. The most I did earlier was paint ILNP’s “Black Orchid” onto my nails. It was very pretty and I was very busy so it just stayed that way. On Read More

Family Manis - Robot - Hermit Werds

Family Manis

January 5, 2017 Lisa 0

The holidays meant getting together with family and what better thing to do than inflict nail polish fumes on them? My first victim was my sister’s boyfriend’s thumb. I used Essie’s “Bell Bottom Blues” and Sinful Color’s “Casablanca” for the fastest drying time possible. The robots came from Nicole Diary’s Read More

Santa is a Tool of the Establishment - Hermit Werds

Santa is a Tool of the Establishment

December 25, 2016 Lisa 2

You may not be aware of it yet, but I am a jerk. So instead of doing a normal Christmas theme, I chose to spend hours on this instead because it amused me. It all started with the jack-in-the-box Santa. I knew I had to do something terrible with it. Read More
