The Fanciest of Coffees

June 28, 2018 Lisa 0

This is a nail art I drew up for a challenge several months ago and just didn’t get done. I still loved the design so I decided to paint it for this month’s coffee mani. It uses all Born Pretty products (except for top/base coat). I love how clean and Read More

Drink-cation - Hermit Werds - #26greatnailartideas (Going on Holiday)

Drink-cation

June 23, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Going on Holiday. Since I just went on holiday to Mexico at an all inclusive resort, my first thought was alcohol. I almost did an entire manicure of just different forms of booze, but then I thought I’d add the Read More

I Love Bugs - Hermit Werds

I 💕 Bugs

February 12, 2017 Lisa 2

I think bugs are cute, so I’m a sucker for nail plates that have them. And Harunouta’s L018 plate had some cute ones. I decided to skip the butterfly since you see them everywhere and the flying bug was too cheesy for me so that left only three. I filled Read More

Gone Fishing - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Gone Fishing

February 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I wore the gradient on my nails for two days because I was too tired to finish this manicure. Pretty pitiful considering how simple this is. It’s nail art that I wanted to do the minute I got my Harunouta plate with the fish images. The way they are clumped Read More

A is for Apricot - ABC Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

‘A’ is for Apricot

December 6, 2016 Lisa 0

Yes. I was following the ABC Challenge from the start just…late and silently. I chose apricot for ‘a’, threw polish at it and then proceeded to procrastinate about photographing it until my nails were utterly chipped and ruined. I have gotten so much better at it, but pulling a lazy Read More

B is for Breakfast - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas (winter warmth) - Hermit Werd

‘B’ is for Breakfast

December 1, 2016 Lisa 0

While I was lagging behind the ABC Challenge (and also didn’t have a blog to post in), I chose breakfast as my subject for the letter ‘b’. I wasn’t really happy with the manicure that resulted and also had no idea that I really needed to clean up my edges Read More

D is for Dinosaur - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘D’ is for Dinosaur

November 1, 2016 Lisa 0

I thought it would be pretty ridiculous to post twice a day while I was working on the 31-day challenge, but now that I’ve slowed down a bit, I thought I’d post this old manicure from the time when I was participating in the ABC Challenge both too late to Read More

U is for Undead - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (supernatural) - Hermit Werds

U is for Undead

October 31, 2016 Lisa 0

My first plan was to go for unicorn to cover both Supernatural and the letter ‘u’, but it was still October, so I decided to go with undead. I had a plate with shamble-y type people and several more with scenery. but since I’d already done a night-scape, I decided Read More

Steampunk Fashion - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Steampunk Fashion

October 24, 2016 Lisa 0

I usually plan these challenges out way ahead of time so ideas for my subject can percolate in the back of my brain for a while, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the topic of fashion. Initially I was going to keep it simple with Read More

Beetlejuice - 31 Day Challenge (movie) - Hermit Werds

BeetleJuice

October 22, 2016 Lisa 0

I remember when Beetlejuice came out. It was a pretty fun movie, but not a favorite of mine. I did, however, watch the cartoon quite faithfully (though I cannot really remember any particular episode to this day, just the sandworms). And then I heard this year that Tim Burton wouldn’t Read More
