Green and pink nail art featuring the Evil Queen and her apple from Snow White.

Evil is as Glamour Does

October 28, 2019 Lisa 0

We take a small departure from Halloween for this design because the prompt was simply Glamour. And what could be more glamorous than an evil queen? So I happily dug back into my sorely neglected Happily Never After stamping plates from Maniology which made this kind of Halloween-y after all. Read More

A delicately gruesome zombie nail art using a translucent shimmery orange polish and soft metallic green zombies.

Zombie Apocalypse

October 17, 2019 Lisa 0

Today’s nail art is a combination of delicate and gruesome with zombies pulling terrible faces on a soft, glittery orange/magenta background. I’m sure they’re friendly zombies just trying to get out a hello around their rotting tongues…🤣 Products Used Base Polishes: Femme Fatale’s “City of the Sun“ with an acetone-thinned Read More

Cursed Pirates

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! I’m so out of practice writing for this blog that I can’t even think of a good pirate-y phrase to say hello again. Hi! I’ve slowly been painting my nails more and more complexly so it’s time to start posting too (and also because Read More

Seattle Tribute - Hermit Werds - nail art for Seattle with a cityscape and the Space Needle bracketed with a smoosh marble in emerald green and purples.

Seattle Tribute

I don’t think it’s fair for me to say a city is my favorite if I have never been to it; so I confess that rather limited my choices of city for #NailsWithIgFriends’ Favorite City prompt. I just haven’t traveled that much. But I have been to Seattle and shoveled Read More

Glitter Conch

Today I have a simple glittery look using a mermaid stamping plate from Born Pretty. I wasn’t quite ready for mermaids yet, so I used an image of a conch shell. Is it fair to say that mermaids are the second most common fantasy creature in the stamping plate world Read More

Busy Bees 2.0 - Hermit Werds - pink and green nail art featuring bee and pink cone flower stamping decals

Busy Bees 2.0

I have completely busted off my index finger’s nail so while I’m fixing that (and the broken links, ugh) I have another recreation from 2017’s #NailFails. My biggest crime with this one was using KleanColor’s metallic polish to stamp something detailed. It looks fine until you top coat and then Read More

A Summer Woodland (with winter stamping plates)

You may remember that I reviewed these stamping plates back in December 2017. So even though I’m not sticking the [press sample] notice on the top of the post because this isn’t a review, you should be aware that I did not use my own money to buy BeautyBigBang06 and Read More

DC Heros - Aquaman - Hermit Werds - green, scale-y, and trident-y nail art for DC's Aquaman with holographic glitter on top.

DC Heroes – Aquaman

August 30, 2018 Lisa 0

I just finished watching Justice League and–having watched Batman vs Superman previously–it was a little weird that Batman became the comic relief when Flash was also the comic relief and Affleck’s Batman was super dark originally. I wish they’d be more consistent with their character development. I did enjoy the Read More

Beauty BIgBang - press samples

Beauty BigBang Review – Christmas Stamping Plates

December 5, 2017 Lisa 0

Press Sample I apparently needed a mental break on top of spending the weekend with family. Well, today I am back with four different nail designs as I explore the possibilities and quality of the stamping plates Beauty BigBang sent to me (I will do a review for the sequins Read More
