‘G’ is for Grain

August 13, 2016 Lisa 0

This marks the first back-post of the ABC Challenge. I have been following it since it started, but was too lazy to get a blog started when it meant work and getting my sadly broken computer functioning again so I could edit the photos. I’ve decided to go in reverse Read More

‘O’ is for Opal

August 13, 2016 Lisa 6

I’d originally planned to do Ocean for the letter ‘O’, but when it came time to paint my nails, I decided I wanted to do something quite different. I’d recently come across a tutorial for opal-like nails on pinterest and decided I wanted to do that instead. This also coincides Read More

I apologize for the bite marks. I have a bad habit of not taking my photos early enough and destroying my nail art pretty quickly. This was originally going to be the background for my ‘J’ is for Jackalope nail art. Unfortunately, while I started with a white base to Read More

‘N’ is for Neko

August 9, 2016 Lisa 4

Most of the people who know me would be surprised to know that I skipped on ‘C’ is for Cat or ‘K’ is for Kitty. I mean, the banner on this blog right now is a picture of my personal demon, Midnight, and I make no secret of being a Read More

M is for My Little Pony - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘M’ is for My Little Pony

July 30, 2016 Lisa 1

This week’s letter is ‘M’ and I had planned on a My Little Pony nail art despite the massive struggle I had when we were on ‘E’ and I chose Equestria Girls. I’d like to say it was in celebration of season 6 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Read More

‘L’ is for Lemons and Limes

I’ve been wanting to experiment with transparency with a citrus-y manicure and so the letter ‘L’ in last week’s ABC Challenge was a perfect time to play with some lemons and limes. Here’s a quick look at the nail polishes I used to create the look. Jelly Polishes: Sinful Colors’ Read More

‘K’ is for Koi

July 20, 2016 Lisa 2

I’ve been waiting to do this manicure until we got to the letter ‘K’, but it has been eating at me extra ever since my Bundle Monster Secret Garden Collection BM-725 nail plate arrived. The stamping plate is a mixture of five different flower-patterned fish and water lilies. I had Read More

J is for Jackalope - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘J’ is for Jackalope

July 14, 2016 Lisa 0

Last week’s ABC nail art challenge was ‘J’. I’d originally intended to do Joker, but when the time came to paint my nails, I wanted something cuter. And what’s cuter than a rabbit with antlers? Especially after I’d recently read an article about how the whole myth may have come Read More

I is for Icing - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘I’ is for Icing

July 7, 2016 Lisa 1

Cake is a vector for icing. The ABC nail art challenge has reached the letter ‘I’ and I picked icing. I started with a base of Sinful Colors’ “Konstellation” from the Kylie Jenner Trend Matters (2016). The reviews I saw from others described it as an oil slick on your Read More

Peaches and Green

July 5, 2016 Lisa 0

Well, I’m trying to get back to doing two manicures a week (one elaborate and one more simple). Moving threw things off quite a bit and mostly I end up doing the elaborate one because I don’t have the energy or time to do another one. Plus, y’know, the manicure Read More
