A cool blue pool party mani with stamping images of watermelon floats and ladies relaxing at a pool surrounded by giant palm fronds.

Keeping Cool at the Pool

June 8, 2022 Lisa 2

I really thought I’d post more last month. I had all this nail art I wanted to do. And instead I’m posting one of the last two things I painted super late. Well, it’s summer and we’re not only getting the kids all to ourselves but we had a bunch Read More

A pale mint green treasure map nail art with reverse stamped islands, monsters, and ships and the final palm tree with 'x' marks the spot.

Treasure Map

Possibly today’s nail art look will make up for missing Talk Like a Pirate Day last year. It’s always a little frustrating when I miss a holiday that I want to cover, but selling my home so we could move took precedence. This year, though, you should be able to Read More

An outer space Le Petit Prince nail art with stamping decals of the Prince, fox, and rose on a deep navy crelly with white glitter stars.

Le Petit Prince

February 4, 2022 Lisa 0

I did take French when I was in public school, but I never went very far with it so I never had to read Le Petit Prince on its original language. Instead, I read it on my own in English and loved it. In many ways, the fox’s words to Read More

Pool party nail art using mint polish and a soft beige glitter crelly with stamping decals of anthropomorphic animals swimming and dj-ing.

Pool Party

July 11, 2021 Lisa 1

The prompt was pool party, a very summer-y topic, and I had this cool stamping plate with little animals playing sports. It’s nice when you get to be utterly literal except I realize now looking at this nail art that it’s an introvert’s pool party. Everyone is all alone on Read More

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

Reindeer Holiday

December 25, 2020 Lisa 2

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

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 5

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

Dimension Nails Review - Hermit Werds - the nail art

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

Mystery Berries - Hermit Werds - brown veil technique over white gel polish with red berries stamped on top

Mystery Berries

February 5, 2018 Lisa 0

The veil technique has hit the nail art community and I wanted to try it out sooner rather than later. Lucky for me my nails were already painted white. The basic idea is to drip one or two drops of your polish into a cup of warm water and let Read More

Elementary Christmas Songs - Hermit Werds - silver bells, Santa checking his list, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, and Frosty on a red and green holographic background

Elementary Christmas Songs

December 24, 2017 Lisa 0

I actually had this done in time to post on Friday, but I was too busy running around or being tired from running around to write all this out. The prompt from 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Christmas Childhood Memories. I wasn’t raised religious so that took out all 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
