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

Flowers

So much of this challenge for me has been to get the manicure done as quickly as possible. (Mind you, I ruined that by using the base color I did. “Fresh Linen” is one of the crappiest formulas out of the Revlon Parfumerie line, but it smells soooo good!) So Read More

Snake Skin

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

R is for Rubber Ducky - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (Stripes) - Hermit Werds

‘R’ is for Rubber Ducky

The ABC Challenge has started back up again with ‘R’. And what can be more ‘R’ than a rubber ducky? I’ve added stripes in the background so I can combine it with the 31-Day Challenge and free-handed the ducks on my silicon nail art mat. Phew! I think this will Read More

Like many other challenge participants, I’ve chosen to interpret “polka dot” as more “dotticure”. I had a handful of I

Gradient

I bought some new Sinful Colors polishes before I left on vacation and the Iridescent Color collection is amazing. So I had to use one for the gradient manicure. “Shell Out” has a green shimmer that doesn’t just show up in the bottle. In fact, when used in a sponge Read More

Steampunk Rainbow - 31 Day Challenge (rainbow) - Hermit Werds

Steampunk Rainbow

Rainbow is my favorite color so deciding what I was going to do for this manicure was hard. However, I’d recently seen Cassie P do a nail art tutorial with Foil Flower Stamping. I went straight to ebay to buy myself some gradient nail foil. So yummy. It was both Read More

Black and White - 31 Day Challenge Nail Art - Hermit Werds

B&W

October 5, 2016 Lisa 0

I was not happy with this, but at the pace I have to set to finish before the inlinkz close, I decided I wasn’t going to do a do-over. I used masking tape instead nail vinyls or nail art striping tape and I cut the strips too thick. Also, the Read More

Metallic - Hermit Werds

Metallic

October 3, 2016 Lisa 0

I really wanted to have super pretty nails while I was at the steampunk convention. However, since we weren’t going straight to the con, I knew my nails would be battered and unpretty before I got there. The original plan was to buy press-on nails and see how well they Read More

Violet - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Violet

I love a good butterfly manicure. Especially the full-wing kind. I tried to keep this manicure as simple as possible because I had a lot of sewing to do for a steampunk convention. Sometimes simple works. I’ve seen people free-hand the wings really well, but I had a stamping plate Read More
