Bunnies in Black

July 20, 2018 Lisa 0

Sometimes you just get a funny idea in your head and you have to do it. I had a stamping plate with these weird suited bunnies and they gave me a brain worm that I just couldn’t shake. I had to riff off of Men in Black with them. I’m Read More

Iced Coffee - Hermit Werds - coral and white gold nail art with iced coffee stamping

Iced Coffee

I both love how this design came together and feel oddly meh about it at the same time. The amusing reason is that #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt for this week is Least Favorite Color. This is extremely difficult for me because my favorite color is rainbow. I’ve been saying it’s rainbow for Read More

Endangered Fav: the Phillippine Monkey-eating Eagle

I fell in love with the Philippine Monkey-eating Eagle years ago while watching a documentary on raptors (I think it was World of Raptors, 2003, but I’m not sure). It is among the largest eagles in the world in terms of length and wing surface and measures around 3 feet Read More

“Chu” It Good!

Don’t get me wrong, I love snakes, lizards, dragons, etc. I wasn’t trying to avoid painting them on my nails. But when the prompt “Creatures with Scales” came up on #26GreatNailArtIdeas, well I ran into the dilemma of to pun or not to pun. I chose pun. So today’s nail Read More

Dimension Nails Review – the Nail Art

April 27, 2018 Lisa 0

[Press Sample] Hello, again! We are on the second and final day of my review of three Dimension Nails polishes that the company founder sent to me. Yesterday we focused on formula, color comparisons, and the question of water marbling. Today we’re just focusing on the fun of using them Read More

Un-beat-able

December 18, 2017 Lisa 0

I’m trying to do more nail art that I just want to do and fewer challenges and what better way to manage that than to dedicate an entire manicure to beets! I love canned pickled beets. I eat them on their own and with salad, all while being ultra paranoid Read More

Pumpkin Spice Latte - Hermit Werds - rich orange-y colors stamped with coffee images and a pumpkin

Pumpkin Spice Latte

It has been pumpkin everything season for a while now. I’m not the hugest fan of non-savory pumpkin foods, but I do enjoy a good pumpkin latte (even if I do love peppermint and gingerbread more). I was looking at #coffeenails on Instagram and it is so full of just Read More

Monkey Business - Hermit Werds - #aznailartchallenge (jungle)

Monkey Business

June 22, 2017 Lisa 2

#aznailartchallenge on Instagram is on J for Jungle and #30daysofcolour has a holo theme this week. While poison dart frogs would have also made me happy, they’d be harder to do with the holo polishes I have so I decided to go with monkeys instead. Also, it allowed me to Read More

Delicately Coffee - Hermit Werds - Nail Crazies Unite (Delicate Pattern)

Delicately Coffee

May 20, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this week’s Nail Crazies Unite is Delicate Print. My first thoughts were of feathers and lace, but I wanted to do something different. Instead I thought of the delicate swirls steam makes as it rises from your cup and the text from one of my coffee nail Read More
