A is for Apricot - ABC Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

‘A’ is for Apricot

December 6, 2016 Lisa 0

Yes. I was following the ABC Challenge from the start just…late and silently. I chose apricot for ‘a’, threw polish at it and then proceeded to procrastinate about photographing it until my nails were utterly chipped and ruined. I have gotten so much better at it, but pulling a lazy Read More

Y is for YOLO - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘Y’ is for YOLO (You Obviously Like Owls)

December 2, 2016 Lisa 4

I’ve been reading the comic Questionable Content for several years now. I love his crazy characters (of all sizes), references to an indie music scene I am no part of, and incorporation of AIs into daily life. Back when the phrase ‘YOLO’ (You Only Live Once) was at its peak Read More

B is for Breakfast - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas (winter warmth) - Hermit Werd

‘B’ is for Breakfast

December 1, 2016 Lisa 0

While I was lagging behind the ABC Challenge (and also didn’t have a blog to post in), I chose breakfast as my subject for the letter ‘b’. I wasn’t really happy with the manicure that resulted and also had no idea that I really needed to clean up my edges Read More

D is for Dinosaur - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘D’ is for Dinosaur

November 1, 2016 Lisa 0

I thought it would be pretty ridiculous to post twice a day while I was working on the 31-day challenge, but now that I’ve slowed down a bit, I thought I’d post this old manicure from the time when I was participating in the ABC Challenge both too late to Read More

Steampunk Fashion - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Steampunk Fashion

October 24, 2016 Lisa 0

I usually plan these challenges out way ahead of time so ideas for my subject can percolate in the back of my brain for a while, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the topic of fashion. Initially I was going to keep it simple with Read More

Beetlejuice - 31 Day Challenge (movie) - Hermit Werds

BeetleJuice

October 22, 2016 Lisa 0

I remember when Beetlejuice came out. It was a pretty fun movie, but not a favorite of mine. I did, however, watch the cartoon quite faithfully (though I cannot really remember any particular episode to this day, just the sandworms). And then I heard this year that Tim Burton wouldn’t Read More

Nightmare Before Christmas - 31 Day Challenge (song) - Hermit Werds

Nightmare Before Christmas

October 21, 2016 Lisa 0

So I’ve been trying to pick subjects that also fit in with Halloween and since Beetlejuice isn’t really known for a particular song, I opted for “Nightmare Before Christmas” as my song. That movie has sooo many good songs. I, however, was also limited by my lazy and the stamping Read More

Geometric Kiwi Bird - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Geometric Kiwi

October 13, 2016 Lisa 0

I’ve had this particular manicure planned for a while. Pretty much ever since I purchased the KD-SM612-002 plate from ebay. They are acrylic so I was pretty hesitant to buy them at first. I started with buying the plate I used today because I was quite enamored of that little 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

Q is for Quack - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (Red) - Hermit Werds

‘Q’ is for Quack

September 1, 2016 Lisa 0

It has been a hectic week and I’ve spent more time on my cosplay wings than on my nail art. So I am late. Late enough that I made a placeholder post (which is probably cheating?) so I would still be included in on the inLinkz. I wanted to do Read More
