A pink glow in the dark crelly with Disney villain Ursula nail art complete with tentacles, shell necklace, and her attack on Eric's ship.

Disney Villain: Ursula

June 3, 2021 Lisa 2

So the @HalloweenForeverCollab picked Disney (or other animated shows) villains in neons or glow in the dark and, well, how does one pick a single villain out of so many wonderful prospects? Easy. You just go straight for Ursula and can’t convince yourself to paint anything else. (Admittedly I already Read More

It’s Mermay and the nail art community seems to largely be ignoring it as I haven’t seen a single mermaid in any of the challenges I looked at. That’s okay. I’ll find way to include mermaids in my nail art anyway. For instance, today’s prompt was for Fruit and I Read More

A super bling Christmas mani starting with a red/green thermal polish, bright green swirls, and dancing reindeer stamping decals.

It’s Christmas! And I have one last reindeer/Christmas mani to share. It has been a month for reindeer nail art since this is the fourth time they’re showing up. Although if you count how many designs I’ve repainted it’s been all reindeer all the time for me. 😭 I decided Read More

Talk Like a Pirate Day is one of the holidays that I try to make nail art for. Last year it was Space Pirates and the year before that I was still getting my feet under me. Two years in a row is still a tradition, right? 😉 Normally I Read More

Okay, not the most original title, but it’s exactly what this nail art is about! Also, I was going to say this is my first set of wedding nails, but I have a #NailFail with wedding birds that I’m just not going to link to… /whistle I do have, like…one(?) Read More

New Beginnings - Hermit Werds - Ultraviolet nail art for New Year 2018 with baby heads

New Beginnings

January 30, 2018 Lisa 0

I’m not really into Pantone’s color of the year thing. I’m sure their research scope is much broader than mine (web design trends, interior design, minimalism, and nail art mostly), but I really don’t think Greenery ended up being the color for 2017. The polish makers dutifully came up with Read More

Mighty Jungle, Mighty Deer - Hermit Werds - Freehand painted brocket deer in the jungle accent nail with fawn pattern

Mighty Jungle, Mighty Deer

August 20, 2017 Lisa 0

I’ve been wanting to do fawn patterned nails ever since I saw Lucy’s tutorial on YouTube. I had a Brown, Grey, Green prompt from When Colours Collide and a jungle prompt from #clairestelle8challenge. At first, I figured I could do a tropical bird stamping and fill it in with greys Read More
