This post was brought to you by pre-planning and vodka. I just knew moving would break my blog and I’m doing what I can to fix it, but I have over 250 blog posts and probably three times that in pictures to fix. One day at a time, eh? Definitely Read More

It has been pumpkin everything season for a while now. I’m not the hugest fan of non-savory pumpkin foods, but I do enjoy a good pumpkin latte (even if I do love peppermint and gingerbread more). I was looking at #coffeenails on Instagram and it is so full of just Read More

The Parasol Collector - Hermit Werds - a series of parasol decals and a victorian lady on a blue and green smoosh marble

The Parasol Collector

November 15, 2017 Lisa 0

This was a combination of prompts: #WhenColoursCollide’s Blue and Green only, #GlamNailsChallenge’s Umbrella, and #GgfNaChallenge’s Steampunk. I haven’t really be following #Ggf, but steampunk! I am not sure I really covered that even though I did use parasols instead of umbrellas and a Victorian lady (whom I have used before). Read More

Face Worms - Hermit Werds - periwinkle mustache background with darker blue emo mustache stamping

Face Worms

You’ll forgive the title. We’re obviously talking about mustaches here and I think they are great. My husband curls his and everything and he’s at least five times more handsome with it. So why did I call them Face Worms? Well, I finished Drown by Esther Dalseno a few weeks Read More

This is my first time participating in #manicollabs on Instagram. The prompt was Inspired by a Country You Would Like to Visit and I asked if it had to be a real country. They said ‘no’ so then I spent time thinking about a recognizable and cool land I would Read More

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I Read More

2 Cwl 4 Skwl - Hermit Werds - a book full of fantasy and science fiction stories

2 Cwl 4 Skwl

August 18, 2017 Lisa 2

I really wanted to participate in this month’s #NailAddictsCollab. The theme was 2 Cwl 4 Skwl and since you’re supposed to include a bit about why you chose your subject, I really thought about what I wanted to say. At first I wanted to paint Bart Simpson nails because he Read More

Colorfully in Space - Hermit Werds - When Colours Collide (mint, purple, and black)

Colorfully in Space

May 29, 2017 Lisa 2

I was tempted to play with abstract patterns for the When Colours Collide theme of Mint, Purple and Black, but I’ve also hoarded so many space-themed stamping plates that it was more than time to use them. I love to use my black jelly nail polish and stamp on it Read More

Lady in Sparkles - Hermit Werds

Lady in Sparkle

March 22, 2017 Lisa 0

I’m behind on the nail art challenges I normally try to do, so instead of doing them I decided to stamp some nail art over the one polish manicure I’d already been wearing for three days. Normally I would not wear one color of polish let alone do nail art 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
