Today I have a simple glittery look using a mermaid stamping plate from Born Pretty. I wasn’t quite ready for mermaids yet, so I used an image of a conch shell. Is it fair to say that mermaids are the second most common fantasy creature in the stamping plate world Read More

It seems like I only paint coral nails when it comes from a nail challenge prompt (#LigaNailistaChallenge) and then I just want to go full on coral. So today I have another coral monochrome. You can see the one I painted in 2017 here [Edit 1-16-2018: Sorry, it was a Read More

Snowman Wonderland - Hermit Werds - blue thermal snowflake crelly with snowmen stamping decals on top, including a skating snowman

This design was certainly a trial. I started the month with the illusion that I’d be following the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts. Nope! Okay…I thought I could combine the first two prompts of Snowman and Mittens and then follow the rest normally. I had two snowmen stamping images wearing mittens. Nope! My Read More

Today is National Milk Day so I thought it was time to share this mani. Also, my apologies for lying about posting new nail art the next day. I had a design planned out and partially painted, but my heart wouldn’t let me finish it until I made a few Read More

Well, I guess I can say definitively now: unless everything is ready and all I have to do is hit “Post”, the blog and social media do not get touched when I’m visiting family. That’s probably for the best, but it’s a little hard when you’re trying not to keep Read More

Christmas Carolers - Hermit Werds - nail art of a pig, a pug (dog), two cats, and a sheep singing Christmas carols against a shimmery background in purple to orange to raspberry tones

Christmas Carolers

The last time I combined animals and music I was painting the Bremen Town Musicians. It feels like I painted them ages ago, but it’s only been a few months! I already knew that I really wanted to use UR Sugar’s UR-L007’s singing animals as Christmas carolers and then I Read More

Have a Crelly Christmas - Hermit Werds - nail art of a pink glittery crelly with reindeer with a "Merry X-mas" message on top

Have a Crelly Christmas

Some people may prefer that the term never be shortened but, as a nail artist, it just feels like it would be easier to fit the whole thing on my nails. 🤣🤣🤣 So today we have Merry Xmas instead of Merry Christmas and I do still feel slightly guilty because Read More

Today’s nail art is a simple one that nearly catches me back up to where I was supposed to be. Candy cane stripes are such a bold and lovely look. Red and white are the usual culprits, although candy canes come in so many wonderful flavors and color combinations. Oh Read More

I have completely busted off my index finger’s nail so while I’m fixing that (and the broken links, ugh) I have another recreation from 2017’s #NailFails. My biggest crime with this one was using KleanColor’s metallic polish to stamp something detailed. It looks fine until you top coat and then Read More

I updated to WordPress 5.0 just now and it broke all of the nail polish and stamping plate links. I am working on fixing them, just be aware they aren’t working right now. Also, the Gutenberg editor is dog barf to write posts with. I’ll give it a little more Read More
