The Little Mermaid - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8challenge (book/movie)

The Little Mermaid

June 24, 2017 Lisa 2

Today’s #clairestellechallenge theme is book/movie. I decided to do The Little Mermaid, but I wasn’t interested in following the color scheme from the Disney movie even though I gave it a direct nod on my thumb. The Little Mermaid holds a special place in my heart. It’s the first animated 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

Tourist Season - Hermit Werds

Tourist Season and blog improvements

February 26, 2017 Lisa 5

This was for the 30 Days of Colour Challenge: Bright. Naturally I tapped into my Sinful Color’s Neon Collection nail polishes, but since I didn’t paint my nails white first they are not quite as bright as they could have been. Considering how hard of a time my phone camera Read More

Blue Floral - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

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

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

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

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

W is for Whale - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘W’ is for Whale

November 18, 2016 Lisa 0

I’d wanted to do a Wonder Woman manicure, but I was just too tired and stressed to want to muck about with that much striping tape. So I went back to my list of alternatives for ‘W’ and decided to do whales. Because whales are love and there is not Read More

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

Yellow - 31 Day Challenge - Hermit Werds

Yellow

September 18, 2016 Lisa 0

I’ve wanted to do a yellow submarine manicure for a while. Uber Chic’s nail plate and this nail challenge offered the perfect opportunity. I focused on a few jelly nail sandwiches with white stamping and a tiny bit of yellow gradient and a few solid yellow nails with obviously white Read More
