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

Phoenix In Flight

So #clairestelle8 has all mythical creature prompts this month (like /cough unicorn) and that’s pretty hard for me to resist. Happily, I already had designs I wanted to do for most of these beasties, especially the phoenix. I have already painted a few phoenix designs before, but I bought OS-03 Read More

Beetles Are Just Warrior Butterflies - Hermit Werds - neon dry brush nail art with beetles and leaves stamped on top

Beetles Are Just Warrior Butterflies

March 8, 2018 Lisa 2

My husband has gotten used to me shoving my hands in his face and squealing ‘look-ee!’ Well, I finished these after he went to bed and I wasn’t quite awake yet when I said “Look, husband, butterflies!” I think it’s fairly obvious these are not butterflies and I corrected myself Read More

Decorative Geometry - Hermit Werds - geometric arrow stamping with a mint, grey, and yellow color scheme

Decorative Arrows

I actually posted this to the #WhenColoursCollide FB group fairly early on during the prompt period, but I have been late about it ever since. The colors were Mint, Grey, and Yellow, so not obviously Christmas-y, but a few ladies made it work, especially @polishedcalla (sadly she hasn’t posted the Read More

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

Endangered Elephants

I certainly meant to have this come out yesterday (esp since I’ve already posted it to Instagram), but I guess that wasn’t in the cards. So this is my first post of the day and there will be another around noon MT. I live in America so elephants have definitely Read More

Unicorn of Fall - Hermit Werds - plump fall unicorn mid-leap on holographic autumn-colored gradient background

Unicorn of Fall

It’s unicorn time again and so it is also time to bring out my lovely Cupcake holo glitter polishes. This time it was for a fall gradient so I had to supplement the strawberry red and yellow with an orange and a bright green. Fortunately my holo collection has grown Read More

Storming Upward - Hermit Werds - progressive look upward of the sky on a rainy day

Storming Upward

November 13, 2017 Lisa 4

I would love to do a cloud manicure in unnatural colors, but today I thought I’d tackle a different idea: upward progression. We start at ground level with my index finger and head upwards from there until we see the stars that live above the clouds. I was afraid this Read More

Floral Fairies - Hermit Werds - fairy silhouettes wearing skirts made of flowers on a thermal polish background

Floral Fairies

September 14, 2017 Lisa 2

For as long as I can remember, I have seen artists drawing fairies with clothing made from flowers. So when #nailsunitedseptchallenge had a prompt for Fairy coinciding directly with the flower prompt for #31DC2017, well, there was only one thing to do. So I did it on a beautiful thermal Read More

Grey Skull - Hermit Werds - gold and grey water marble with double stamped skull

Grey Skull

September 3, 2017 Lisa 0

Sadly, not He-man nails, although that is an idea to be explored later… 😉 This particular combination brought to you by the Facebook group #WhenColoursCollide‘s Grey and Gold (only) prompt. I decided to finally play a little with my Sinful Colors Hypnotic Transforming Top Coat. It is a very fun Read More
