Gone Fishing - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Gone Fishing

February 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I wore the gradient on my nails for two days because I was too tired to finish this manicure. Pretty pitiful considering how simple this is. It’s nail art that I wanted to do the minute I got my Harunouta plate with the fish images. The way they are clumped Read More

Mermaid's Treasure - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds - a bling mermaid mani with pearls and caviar beads.

Mermaid’s Treasure

January 27, 2017 Lisa 6

When I first bought the nail plate I used (WP-30), I had already half-planned out an entire manicure just with it. I loved the scale pattern on the mermaid’s tail most of all (and totally plan on using it in future manicures when I need an organic-looking scale pattern). Combined Read More

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

August 24, 2016 Lisa 0

Here is another nail art I got out too late to participate in the inLinkz. Plus I had nowhere I wanted to post my nail art back then. I apparently have a thing for food nail art. Whenever I see a nail stamping plate with food on it, I want Read More

K is for Koi - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘K’ is for Koi

July 20, 2016 Lisa 2

I’ve been waiting to do this manicure until we got to the letter ‘K’, but it has been eating at me extra ever since my Bundle Monster Secret Garden Collection BM-725 nail plate arrived. The stamping plate is a mixture of five different flower-patterned fish and water lilies. I had Read More
