Iced Coffee - Hermit Werds - coral and white gold nail art with iced coffee stamping

Iced Coffee

July 9, 2018 Lisa 0

I both love how this design came together and feel oddly meh about it at the same time. The amusing reason is that #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt for this week is Least Favorite Color. This is extremely difficult for me because my favorite color is rainbow. I’ve been saying it’s rainbow for Read More

Black Sheep, Green Meadows

Just a quick, simple nail art today. Sometimes I complicate things too much and end up staring off into the distance because it’s too much work and I don’t wanna get started. Plus the first version of my other nail art didn’t turn out the way I wanted so I Read More

Love is Love

June 22, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s Pride Month and I’ve been itching to paint some LGBTQ positive nail art since it started, but the challenges I was following really didn’t fit with that until now. #26GreatNailArtIdeas‘ prompt of graffiti fits well with a rainbow theme so I grabbed Born Pretty Valentine’s Day BP-L005 and got Read More

Endangered Fav: the Phillippine Monkey-eating Eagle

I fell in love with the Philippine Monkey-eating Eagle years ago while watching a documentary on raptors (I think it was World of Raptors, 2003, but I’m not sure). It is among the largest eagles in the world in terms of length and wing surface and measures around 3 feet Read More

Ladybug Aggregation - Hermit Werds - nail art with soft, sweet ladybugs and daisies against a bright yellow background

Ladybug Aggregation

May 9, 2018 Lisa 0

Ladybug aggregation is when ladybugs form large clusters and hibernate together over the winter. Sometimes they try to do this in our buildings and people get really fussed. But as numerous as they seem in such situations, their populations are in decline. You can help by not only stopping people Read More

"Chu" It Good - Hermit Werds - plump little hamsters on a pea green background

“Chu” It Good!

Don’t get me wrong, I love snakes, lizards, dragons, etc. I wasn’t trying to avoid painting them on my nails. But when the prompt “Creatures with Scales” came up on #26GreatNailArtIdeas, well I ran into the dilemma of to pun or not to pun. I chose pun. So today’s nail Read More

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

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

Peppermint Coffees

December 31, 2017 Lisa 0

One of the great joys of the holiday season is the arrival of peppermint coffee creamers in the grocery store. Such an effortless way to make coffee magical in the morning. I like pumpkin spice coffee just fine, but I love peppermint coffee even more. Yum, yum, yum. So when Read More
