Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! I’m so out of practice writing for this blog that I can’t even think of a good pirate-y phrase to say hello again. Hi! I’ve slowly been painting my nails more and more complexly so it’s time to start posting too (and also because Read More

May 31, 2019 Lisa 0

This has literally been the first time I painted my nails in over a month but I really didn’t want to miss Mermay so I made time for painting today. Sorry that I’ve had to focus on other things lately. I wish I could say they were things for the Read More

April Showers

Rainy day nail art in April is a must if you like to acknowledge the seasons in your designs. In fact, I need to stop waiting for the ground to be dry before mowing my lawn because it hasn’t happened in well over a week. I love the rain, though, Read More

Happy Alien Abduction Day! The secret title to this nail design is “Date Night”. Mwahahahaaa I just loved the alien abduction stamping image the minute I saw it. And it only took me two years to use it! Yay!? Products Used For a design with only one nail that isn’t Read More

A B C...Zzz - Hermit Werds - nail art with holographic corals, salmon pink, and the start of the alphabet until kitty gets tired. Zzzz...

A B C…Zzz

I’d drawn up this design to use the ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ that one of my stamping plates had. I figured I’d pull it out if I had to do another Back to School prompt. But then #AZNailArtChallenge restarted with ‘A’ is for Alphabet and, well, I couldn’t not use Read More

Seattle Tribute

I don’t think it’s fair for me to say a city is my favorite if I have never been to it; so I confess that rather limited my choices of city for #NailsWithIgFriends’ Favorite City prompt. I just haven’t traveled that much. But I have been to Seattle and shoveled Read More

Another day, another manicure posting later at night than I could wish. Well, you’ll see very quickly how many photos I had to edit with this one. Worth it. That’s what I tell myself at night… Anyway, the nail art I piled on top of this lovely polish was inspired Read More

The Swan Princess

It’s late, but it’s still Tell a Fairy Tale Day for a bit longer! I chose The Swan Princess for #NailChallenge’s Fairy Tale prompt because #GlamNailsChallenge also had a Swan prompt and I thought that made a good fit. There are several tales involving swans in the common fairy tale Read More

Today I have Unicorns for #GlamNailsChallengeFeb. This is possibly the first time I’ve posted a prompt on time for this challenge in many, many weeks. Ah, well. That’s what getting sick does to you. I almost turned this in for #WhenColoursCollide’s yellow/orange/red theme, but then I realized there were gold Read More

Magnetic Sol - Hermit Werds - nail art featuring a sun-baked landscape on a magnetic khaki background with a golden scatter of glitter "stars"

Magnetic Sol – BBB Review (magnetic gel polish)

February 19, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Wow. I can’t believe I’ve reached the end of my reviews. Having to stop painting my nails because I was reacting to the fumes really backed everything up and now reviewing feels like the new norm. I picked this last polish because I found the khaki-looking nature of Read More
