Eye of the (Domesticated) Tiger

January 5, 2018 Lisa 0

I just can’t do enough cat nail art, obviously. The hard part of this mani was settling on which metallic polish colors I wanted to use because I’d always planned on using a bunch and then having black as my one color. It’s not cheating if you were plotting it Read More

Winter WonderNail - Hermit Werds - pink and red winter fun nail art with hat, mittens, and snowman head

Winter WonderNail

December 20, 2017 Lisa 0

Part of me wanted to go super elaborate for this one, but I made myself take a step back and simplify because I did not have the time. So I went with lots of pink with silver snowflakes and red stamping for my decals. Given the theme, I picked images Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – Christmas Stamping Plates

December 5, 2017 Lisa 0

Press Sample I apparently needed a mental break on top of spending the weekend with family. Well, today I am back with four different nail designs as I explore the possibilities and quality of the stamping plates Beauty BigBang sent to me (I will do a review for the sequins Read More

Pumpkin Spice Latte - Hermit Werds - rich orange-y colors stamped with coffee images and a pumpkin

Pumpkin Spice Latte

November 30, 2017 Lisa 0

It has been pumpkin everything season for a while now. I’m not the hugest fan of non-savory pumpkin foods, but I do enjoy a good pumpkin latte (even if I do love peppermint and gingerbread more). I was looking at #coffeenails on Instagram and it is so full of just Read More

Fan Dance - Hermit Werds - pink and black mani with delicate fans and holographic glitter accent nail

Fan Dance

November 27, 2017 Lisa 0

I currently own four fans that I barely use (plus one miniature) and would happily own more. To be fair, each fan serves a different purpose. The miniature was a key chain that I kept as a prop for my dolls. Meanwhile, the larger models are all quite different: one Read More

Happy Overeating Day - Hermit Werds - traditional thanksgiving feast with turkey and pumpkin

Happy Overeating Day

November 21, 2017 Lisa 0

Since my Thankful-prompted nail art wasn’t at all American Thanksgiving Day-themed, I thought I’d haul out my Born Pretty BP-191 stamping plate and paint something more traditional on my nails. It was well-timed since I went to an early Thanksgiving get-together with these on. I kept the color scheme and Read More

Lacey Pink - Hermit Werds - pond manicure with pink polish and lace stamping

Lacey Pink

November 9, 2017 Lisa 2

I decided it was time to use my last untried Zoya polish. So when #clairestelle8challenge came up with a lace prompt, I said “Let’s see how this works with a pond mani.” I think it worked well. I slathered on a layer of “Paloma”, stamped the netting pattern, more jelly, 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

Star Wars - Hermit Werds - simple nail art featuring Star Wars' dark side

Star Wars and Gardening Book

September 26, 2017 Lisa 0

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I 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
