Lacy Heart

February 13, 2019 Lisa 0

Somehow I managed to fit in the @one_nail_creativity_club in the middle of all my reviewing. I think it turned out pretty well, though if I could do it again, I’d cobble together two different stamping images and continue the theme of lace hearts up the entire nail. Alas, I am Read More

Kitty Clause - Hermit Werds - glittery magenta nails with orange french tips edged with a cute toy train and cute cats

Kitty Clause – BBB Review (stamping plates)

February 10, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] All aboard the color train! LOL We’re back to reviewing stamping plates today with Beauty BigBang’s XL-030 and XL-033. The former has several cat images (all of which I loved and used immediately) and the later has this amazing full-nail train stamp that I separated to create a Read More

Origami Zodiac - Hermit Werds - black and bronze nail art with stamped baby boomer french tips and origami zodiac animals for the year of the rooster, dog, pig, rat, and ox

Hello Again & Origami Zodiac

February 3, 2019 Lisa 0

Wow… So I hadn’t quite meant to take such a giant step back from social media, the blog, and nail art. I rearranged my workroom and found I could fit in my grandfather’s old unfolding table that is so perfect for crafts and cutting out patterns and, well, I got Read More

Lady of the Bees 2.0

August 30, 2018 Lisa 0

I try to at least paint two designs for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s month long themes, but this month was especially challenging because…pink/blue instead of food. You guys know how I feel about food. 😢 So I was sad and I wasn’t sure what to paint. I managed to get out a Pink Read More

Women's Equality Day - Hermit Werds - pink nail art with stamped messages women often hear that hold them back

Women’s Equality Day

August 26, 2018 Lisa 2

I’d say Happy Women’s Equality Day, but, while the 19th amendment has given women the right to vote (and we apparently exercise it more than men), we are still missing a law explicitly prohibiting gender-based discrimination. Not acceptable. We only need one more state to make the Equal Rights Amendment Read More

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

Floral Smoosh - Hermit Werds - Nail Crazies Unite - Pastel Floral

Floral Smoosh

April 20, 2017 Lisa 2

Pastel Floral is the theme for this Nail Crazies Unite challenge. I decided to try something I haven’t done before: smooshing polish on my nails with my stamper. I am not sure which person in the nail art community did this first, but I doubt it would ever have occurred 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
