Girl in a Leopard Print Bikini - Hermit Werds - sexy pin-up style Bettie Page inspired nails

The Girl in the Leopard Print Bikini

September 13, 2017 Lisa 2

I really admire the whole vintage Bettie Page-esque look. I occasionally come close to wearing it, but I am too lazy with hair and makeup (and my hair is too long). So I was really excited when #firedazedsept2017 included a Bettie Page prompt. Since I had to combine it with Read More

Beware the Fist - Hermit Werds - comic book style suited man running forward like Superman

Beware the Fist!

September 9, 2017 Lisa 2

Hehehe I know the guy with his hand up is probably reaching for his glasses so he can turn into Superman, but he’s also bursting through a wall if you’re familiar with the stamping plate. To be honest, I’ve always had a lot of sympathy for the property owners when Read More

Church of the Transient Butterfly - Hermit Werds - stained glass windows with a butterfly in the center

The Church of the Transient Butterfly

September 9, 2017 Lisa 6

Rumors that the Church of the Transient Butterfly was started by the Stained Glass Worker’s Guild have always been denied as the darkest kind of blasphemy by all members. “The Transient Butterfly teaches us that life is short and yet beautiful.” says the current head priest and president of the Read More

Mushroom Garden - Hermit Werds - black and white depiction of a garden of giant mushrooms and mushroom houses

Mushroom Garden

September 6, 2017 Lisa 0

I’m really bummed that I couldn’t do all of the prompts for the #firedazedsept2017 challenge this month, but I just couldn’t pass up Mushrooms. So I combined it with the #31DC2017 prompt of Black and White and the #nailsunitedseptchallenge prompt of Garden and here we are! I started off painting Read More

Blind Men and a Kirin - Hermit Werds - collaged kirin anatomy: antler, chest, back, tail, and leg

Blind Men and a Kirin

September 1, 2017 Lisa 0

So what do you do if you’re me and you have Unicorns (#ggfnachallenge) and Oriental (#AZNailArtChallenge) prompts for your last nail art of the year? You decide to paint a kirin of course and theme it along the tale of the Blind Men and an Elephant. And then instead of Read More

Retro Cherry - Hermit Werds - cherry patterned nails in retro style

Retro Cherry

August 30, 2017 Lisa 0

Whenever I think of retro patterns cherries are one of the first things I think of. Red is the favorite retro lip color. And I’d always gotten the impression that soda fountains were a major hang out spot for a pretty big length of time in there as well. Of Read More

Busy Bees - Hermit Werds - metallic pink stamping of bees visiting flowers in the garden

Busy Bees

August 29, 2017 Lisa 2

I love bees (and bugs in general really), so I was so excited for #firedazedaugust’s last prompt Busy Bees. I haven’t done a truly green manicure in a while so I decided to go for a garden-view of bees working (which also gives me my fourth Nail Challenge Collaborative flower Read More

Sunflower Farming

August 25, 2017 Lisa 0

After painting some post-apocalyptic scenery earlier in the week, I guess it was time for some cute nail art. I returned to Sunflowers with the prompt from #NailCraziesUnite and added Farm Friends from #FireDazedAugust. I was really excited to use my farming nail plate from UberChic, but the one from Read More

Candy Land Candies - Hermit Werd - holographic candy decals on a black gel base

One Black Base – Four Looks

August 24, 2017 Lisa 2

I bought two gel “colors” and since we’ve already done a bunch of white nail art, I thought it was time to do some nail art on a black reusable base. Sadly, these aren’t very thematic since we’re at the end of the month and I’m just scrambling to finish 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
