January 11, 2018 Lisa 0

You might be aware of my goal to finish off an old origami daily calendar from 2007 in 2017. I started off the year with daily origami posts to Instagram. And then I started posting my nail art more and more… Long story short, since origami was not an art Read More

Forever Craned - Hermit Werds - oriental-themed nail art with a clear to blue-grey thermal polish and crane stamping

I wanted so badly to do justice to this polish, but I apparently have great circulation and that makes photographing a thermal polish hard even during the winter. I am just going to have to suck it up and have a bowl of ice water on standby next time. Shinespark Read More

I looked at Harunouta’s L031 Christmas-themed stamping plate last year and gave it a pass, but this year I decided I wanted it after all because the stamp images are so darn cute. Naturally, that meant I had to use them asap even though they are not Christmas-specific and I Read More

The Intellectual Owl - Hermit Werds - cute reading owl on a yellow background with lots of books scattered over an ugly pretty color

I’ve loved the little reading owl on Born Pretty’s Retro Script BPX-L010 stamping plate since before I purchased it. Indeed, as useful as I hope the script elements will end up being, it really was the deciding factor in buying the plate. So when I was asked to join in Read More

A few years ago, I made the mistake of working for a craft supply store. It was full of things that I wanted to buy and I wasn’t making enough money to buy anything. Indeed I was slowly getting into more debt. Fortunately, I managed to get a job that Read More

@kassnailedit decided to run a collab for her birthday with a Phoenix theme. It sounded like a lot of fun, so I jumped on the chance. I even learned something I did not know about Instagram: apparently you can only have fifteen people at once in a chat channel. I Read More

Squirrel! Forever connected with the movie Up! I also have a bizarre story about a squirrel ripping through a hawk’s body like an Alien when it tried to have squirrel lunch living in my head too. That part is a less universally known story and probably shouldn’t have been mentioned Read More

Elegant Peacock - Hermit Werds - blue and green metallic peacock stamping with black

Elegant Peacock and Neutrally Scientific

November 3, 2017 Lisa 2

I do love the coloring of a peacock. If I couldn’t choose rainbow as my favorite color, I’d probably have to pick peacock. It’s a testament to how much nail art I want to do that I have only labeled one other nail art as peacock, but it’s still a Read More

Sunflower Farming - Hermit Werds - sunflower farm with scarecrow and barn

Sunflower Farming

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
