Squash It Good

It has been a long time since I attempted a reciprocal gradient. In fact, I’d have to check my photos to even see if I have done one since I started this blog. I had no idea what I was going to do but, since most nail artists seemed to Read More

Fall Unicorn - Hermit Werds - plump fall unicorn mid-leap on holographic autumn-colored gradient background

Unicorn of Fall

It’s unicorn time again and so it is also time to bring out my lovely Cupcake holo glitter polishes. This time it was for a fall gradient so I had to supplement the strawberry red and yellow with an orange and a bright green. Fortunately my holo collection has grown 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

Thankfully Purple - Hermit Werds - creepy critters stamped on a holographic purple cat's eye magnetic background

Morbid Thankfulness

November 20, 2017 Lisa 0

I love both of my stepkids but, since this is about nail art and my stepson is no longer into getting his nails did, I’m thankful that my stepdaughter still wants to play. And also that she mostly wants her nails to be sparkly purple with spooky things on top. Read More

A few years ago, I made the mistake of working for a craft supply store. It was full of things that I wanted to buy and I wasn’t making enough money to buy anything. Indeed I was slowly getting into more debt. Fortunately, I managed to get a job that Read More

Phoenix Rising - Hermit Werds - false nails depicting the death and rebirth cycle of a phoenix

Phoenix Rising

November 19, 2017 Lisa 2

@kassnailedit decided to run a collab for her birthday with a Phoenix theme. It sounded like a lot of fun, so I jumped on the chance. I even learned something I did not know about Instagram: apparently you can only have fifteen people at once in a chat channel. I Read More

The Love Vine - Hermit Werds - pink stampings of hearts, vines and 'love' on a yellow flakie background

The Love Vine

November 17, 2017 Lisa 2

Sometimes I just want to paint a heavily yellow nail design on my nails. That’s the driving force behind this mani, because with both of the prompts I’m covering today, I could have done anything. This is the first time I have purchased a yellow polish that isn’t basically a Read More

The Parasol Collector - Hermit Werds - a series of parasol decals and a victorian lady on a blue and green smoosh marble

The Parasol Collector

November 15, 2017 Lisa 0

This was a combination of prompts: #WhenColoursCollide’s Blue and Green only, #GlamNailsChallenge’s Umbrella, and #GgfNaChallenge’s Steampunk. I haven’t really be following #Ggf, but steampunk! I am not sure I really covered that even though I did use parasols instead of umbrellas and a Victorian lady (whom I have used before). Read More

Storming Upward - Hermit Werds - progressive look upward of the sky on a rainy day

Storming Upward

November 13, 2017 Lisa 4

I would love to do a cloud manicure in unnatural colors, but today I thought I’d tackle a different idea: upward progression. We start at ground level with my index finger and head upwards from there until we see the stars that live above the clouds. I was afraid this Read More

Face Worms - Hermit Werds - periwinkle mustache background with darker blue emo mustache stamping

Face Worms

November 12, 2017 Lisa 0

You’ll forgive the title. We’re obviously talking about mustaches here and I think they are great. My husband curls his and everything and he’s at least five times more handsome with it. So why did I call them Face Worms? Well, I finished Drown by Esther Dalseno a few weeks Read More
