Red and Pink - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Red and Pink

January 22, 2017 Lisa 6

It’s very close to Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to stay as far away from that theme as possible (not a big fan of the holiday). Then I saw Midnight Stamper’s “Calm” post for a challenge group I had never heard of before and used the group’s over-arching theme (use Read More

The Hedgehog's Fairy Tale - Hermit Werds

The Hedgehog’s Fairy Tale

January 19, 2017 Lisa 2

One of my friends has a hedgehog and he brought her in to work (that’s actually a picture of her below). She was adorable. During our regular morning meeting, she ran around the table from person to person and gave hedgehog love (because he wouldn’t let her disappear up his Read More

New Year, New You - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

New Year, New You

January 9, 2017 Lisa 0

As weird as it for me to believe, today is the first time I’ve stamped anything onto may nails this year. The most I did earlier was paint ILNP’s “Black Orchid” onto my nails. It was very pretty and I was very busy so it just stayed that way. On Read More

Family Manis - Robots - Hermit Werds

Family Manis

January 5, 2017 Lisa 0

The holidays meant getting together with family and what better thing to do than inflict nail polish fumes on them? My first victim was my sister’s boyfriend’s thumb. I used Essie’s “Bell Bottom Blues” and Sinful Color’s “Casablanca” for the fastest drying time possible. The robots came from Nicole Diary’s Read More

Origami Daily Calendar 2007

#origamidaily2007 A Year of Origami

January 1, 2017 Lisa 2

Years ago (2007 *cough*) I received an origami day calendar. I never used it. I sorted through it and picked out the things I was interested in making. I even bought another package of origami paper so I had extra paper to play with. Those papers have moved from Utah Read More

Santa is a Tool of the Establishment - Hermit Werds

Santa is a Tool of the Establishment

December 25, 2016 Lisa 2

You may not be aware of it yet, but I am a jerk. So instead of doing a normal Christmas theme, I chose to spend hours on this instead because it amused me. It all started with the jack-in-the-box Santa. I knew I had to do something terrible with it. Read More

Pastel Christmas - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Pastel Christmas

December 23, 2016 Lisa 2

The challenge was pretty simple and so I decided to keep it simple and use patterns that reminded me of Christmas wrapping paper. I dug through my nail plates and found a few Christmas-specific patterns and a few that fit given the right colors and surroundings. In contrast to my Read More

#ABCChallenge2016 Summary

ABC Challenge – 2016’s Summary – Nail Art

December 20, 2016 Lisa 0

I didn’t have a web presence when the ABC Challenge started. I’d picked up nail art as a hobby back in July 2014 (because: color!), but I hadn’t started a blog or posted pictures anywhere. I’d neglected my old web site so much that I stopped paying for hosting and Read More

Z is for Zeppelin - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘Z’ is for Zeppelin

December 15, 2016 Lisa 2

I did want to try to get at least one more steampunk nail art in before the year ends, so my topic for the letter ‘z’ was pretty obvious. Zeppelins! I planned this manicure out the same time I did Christmas Preparations. I thought I’d love the other one more Read More

Christmas Preparations - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Christmas Preparations

December 11, 2016 Lisa 4

I didn’t want to do presents or trees or holiday ornaments. So I thought I’d do a Christmas date night theme instead. I wish I’d stamped some background holo snowflakes on all of the nails instead of just my thumb, but I think it still worked out okay. Base Colors: Read More
