Blue Floral

February 17, 2017 Lisa 4

I had three different blue floral water decals and I really wanted to use one of them for this challenge (a picture of all three is at the bottom of this post). The first one is my favorite, but I wanted to do more with it than just stick it Read More

I Love Bugs - Hermit Werds

I 💕 Bugs

February 12, 2017 Lisa 2

I think bugs are cute, so I’m a sucker for nail plates that have them. And Harunouta’s L018 plate had some cute ones. I decided to skip the butterfly since you see them everywhere and the flying bug was too cheesy for me so that left only three. I filled Read More

February Sparkles - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

February Sparkles

February 7, 2017 Lisa 2

Glitter or rhinestones would have fit into the theme of ‘Sparkle’ better, but I needed something simple and I had beautiful holo polishes and a new Uber Chic nail plate that needed love. I knew Color Club’s “Cosmic Fate” would stamp well, but I am happy to say that ILNP’s Read More

Black and White Valentine - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Black & White Valentines

February 5, 2017 Lisa 6

I wanted to stick absolutely to a black and white color scheme so the challenge for me was to play with the finish and figure out what stamps I wanted to use. I finally settled for a water marble-y flower with some heart shapes swirled into it and a bunch Read More

Year of the Rooster - Hermit Werds

Year of the Rooster

February 3, 2017 Lisa 2

This actually has the same base colors as Gone Fishing. I decided I was running out of time and since I wanted to use yellow for the year of the rooster, doing one manicure on each hand all worked out. I did a little reading and the lucky colors for Read More

Gone Fishing - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Gone Fishing

February 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I wore the gradient on my nails for two days because I was too tired to finish this manicure. Pretty pitiful considering how simple this is. It’s nail art that I wanted to do the minute I got my Harunouta plate with the fish images. The way they are clumped Read More

Habitica - a habit-forming RPG

How and Why I Use Habitica

January 29, 2017 Lisa 2

Right now my nails are bare and have been since last night. Ah, the horror! I even have the polishes for my next major manicure pulled out, but I will not be working on it tonight because I have other things that needed to get done more. Booooo! And speaking Read More

Mermaid's Treasure - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds - a bling mermaid mani with pearls and caviar beads.

Mermaid’s Treasure

January 27, 2017 Lisa 6

When I first bought the nail plate I used (WP-30), I had already half-planned out an entire manicure just with it. I loved the scale pattern on the mermaid’s tail most of all (and totally plan on using it in future manicures when I need an organic-looking scale pattern). Combined Read More

31 Day Challenge 2016 - Final

31 Day Challenge – 2016’s Summary – Nail Art

January 24, 2017 Lisa 0

I’ve been meaning to write up this post ever since I finished the challenge. I learned a lot from it. It forced me to keep moving and trying new things. I dotticure-d, used water decals and nail foil, covered a nail completely with rhinestones and water marbled for the first Read More
