Dreamy purple glow in the dark nail art with a child stargazing on the back of a whale.

Whale Dreams – BBB Review (gitd powder, stamping plate)

January 22, 2020 Lisa 0

[press sample] Well, I thought I’d be posting this on Monday, but we’re here at last: my last Beauty BigBang review. Today we’re looking at a different line of glow in the dark powders with D1635-3A, which has a lovely purple glow, and a stamping plate with cute little landscapes Read More

Glittery silver and gold nail art with people cheering and partying underneath a 2020 stamping image.

2020 Glitter-fest

January 4, 2020 Lisa 0

I painted this glitter-fest on the first day of 2020 and meant to at least post it on Friday, but my “little nap” turned into a six hours nap followed by maybe two hours of consciousness and then eight more hours of horizontal recuperation. I may have started the year Read More

Celestial Year of the Pig - Hermit Werds - red and gold nail art for Chinese New Year's Year of the Pig complete with geometric boar's head

Celestial Year of the Pig

February 5, 2019 Lisa 0

Happy Chinese New Year! A holiday which I prefer over the western version with its dropping balls and celebrities bribed to entertain us instead of being with their families. I always feel bad about that even though I know they are making a lot of money. Aside from the cute Read More

Neon Web - Hermit Werds - neon yellow behind a bold spider web and skull-marked spider

Neon Web

I didn’t put it on my list, but I kinda wanted to paint something Halloween-ish with a neon yellow background so I combined it with #AZNailArtChallenge’s delightful ‘S’ is for Spider prompt. I used it as a clearing house to finish up a bunch of little goals and the result Read More

Tomb of Snow White - Hermit Werds - horror-themed Snow White nails featuring skeleton of Snow White and her funeral flowers on a grey and black nail art with rose to green to gold flakies and shimmer

Snow White’s Tomb

Sometimes the prince never comes. Poor Snow White. I painted this for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s month-long Halloween theme, #GlamNailsChallengeOct’s Skull, and #LiganailistaChallenge’s Tomb vs Castle prompt. I kinda included both prompts for the latter since we have a castle and Snow White is surely in her tomb. I am so pleased with Read More

Black Bird/Black Dog - Hermit Werds - two black jelly nail art spelling out "bird" and "dog" with black birds and a dog

Black Bird/Black Dog

Sometimes you create a theme that is just easy and fun to revisit. I stumbled across one in October last year with Black Cat. The idea is simple: 3-4 letter animal word, black jelly base, my favorite netting texture from KADS KADS 017, typewriter key letters, and black stamping images Read More

Black Coffee - Hermit Werds - coffee themed black jelly nails covered with black stamping and masked off areas filled with black

Black Coffee

We can’t let the month end without a coffee mani. In fact, this is my eighth nail art dedicated to the delicious drink. I only have four to go before I can declare I have a year’s worth of coffee manis and believe when I say that has been my Read More

Hobbies of the Red Queen - Hermit Werds - freehand paintings of the Red Queen's hobbies in black and red: croquet, baking tarts, collecting red things and ordering executions

Hobbies of the Red Queen

#NailCraziesUnite’s latest prompt is Red and Black Hobbies. I was rather stumped on this one since I didn’t feel like doing more nail art on reading and that’s my second major hobby. So… It was time to defeat my tendency to get mentally stuck on what I don’t want to Read More

Neon Leaves - Hermit Werds - neon smoosh nails outlined in black with an accent nail stamped with leaves

It’s time for more #26GreatNailArtIdeas and the prompt is Black and Neon. When neon prompts come up, I plan to use at least a few of my Sinful Colors’ collection. Partially it’s because I don’t have much else, but I also just like them. They are the first collection of Read More

Elementary Christmas Songs - Hermit Werds - silver bells, Santa checking his list, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, and Frosty on a red and green holographic background

Elementary Christmas Songs

December 24, 2017 Lisa 0

I actually had this done in time to post on Friday, but I was too busy running around or being tired from running around to write all this out. The prompt from 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Christmas Childhood Memories. I wasn’t raised religious so that took out all Read More
