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

Grape Vine

Today I am bringing you some super purple grape nail art for #glamnailschallengesept. At the start of this month I finally went through my helmers and recorded all of the polishes I haven’t used yet on the blog. I had 52 Sinful Colors/Shine polishes listed alone, 150 total unlisted polishes. Read More

Dusty Rose & Green Wedding - Hermit Werds - dusty rose and green nail art with beautiful succulents, ruffles, and bride

Dusty Rose & Green Wedding

May 25, 2018 Lisa 4

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

Tight Laced - Hermit Werds - steampunk corset with jeweled front panel and pocket watch

Tight Laced

September 8, 2017 Lisa 2

Hand me the prompts Metallic and Stripes and you can bet I’m going to come up with something steampunk first off and go with it. Fortunately I had a beautiful holographic brown metallic polish in my order from Shinespark Polish to play with. It was unfortunately dark outside when I Read More

Ride the Carousel - Hermit Werds - Carousel animals at the circus

Ride the Carousel

August 17, 2017 Lisa 2

I adore carousels. I still have a calendar that is over a decade old, but I won’t let go of it because it has carousel horses. I have a cross-stitch that is even older than the calendar that’s about halfway finished. I work on it every couple of years. Maybe Read More

Saint Patrick's Snake - Hermit Werds - 30 Days of Colour Challenge

Saint Patrick’s Snake

March 13, 2017 Lisa 6

The fact that the 30 Days of Colour’s prompt for this week is green and it’s also going to be Saint Patrick’s Day on Friday is probably not coincidental… It’s a little weird that American’s celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day the way we do. I mean, Irish immigrants = St. Patrick’s Read More

T is for TIme - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (color) - Hermit Werds

‘T’ is for Time

October 20, 2016 Lisa 4

I’ve been sick for the last couple of days and on top of being a tired of the pace I was keeping up (I don’t know how the other bloggers who have managed this for several years in a row don’t burn out), I neglected my blog for a bit Read More

S is for Steampunk - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (delicate) - Hermit Werds

‘S’ is for Steampunk

October 12, 2016 Lisa 4

I’m posting this a few days early, but I think I will give myself a pass. I love steampunk. I am currently working on my wardrobe so I can wear it regularly to work. I also love this nail art. The blue is incredible and just transparent enough that I Read More

Snake Skin - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (animal print) - Hermit Werds

Snake Skin

October 10, 2016 Lisa 0

So I’m actually a day behind because I loved this too much to take it off right away and do the next manicure on my list. The combination of two colors on the snake pattern stamping plate just works really well. I initially meant to do a metallic stamp first Read More

P is for Pair - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘P’ is for Pair

August 19, 2016 Lisa 4

I threw around a lot of ideas for the letter ‘p’, everything from penguins to pencils. In the end, I went with word play and decided to do pairs of things starting with ‘p’ with the exception of a single pear. This one took a while. I had a lot Read More
