Kitty Clause – BBB Review (stamping plates)

February 10, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] All aboard the color train! LOL We’re back to reviewing stamping plates today with Beauty BigBang’s XL-030 and XL-033. The former has several cat images (all of which I loved and used immediately) and the later has this amazing full-nail train stamp that I separated to create a 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

Vixen's Tree of Lights - Hermit Werds - nail art featuring reindeer wearing festive Christmas wreathes and a Christmas tree made of string lights on a shimmery purple and blue background

Allergies mean that I can’t have a live Christmas tree, but I don’t think I’d want one now anyway. My last mini faux tree was given away two years ago. It’s a lot simpler without them (although I admire my mother-in-law’s year-round tree that she decorates for each season). 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

December 21, 2018 Lisa 0

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

Sinful Colors' "Bangin' Blue" - Hermit Werds - freehand nail art of two polar bears about to kiss beneath the mistletoe on a blue jelly polish full of iridescent glitter with icebergs decorating the other nails

Polar Bear Smooches

It’s always amusing to see what subjects I return to. I still haven’t painted penguin nails, but this is my third polar bear nail art. My first one was also for Christmas so maybe this will end up being a tradition of some sort. Either way, when I had the Read More

Santa Cookie - Hermit Werds - glittery red and green baby boomer french tip nails decorated with gingerbread Santa, Mrs. Clause, and Rudolph cookies

I tried something different and took a nap when I was feeling really tired. So instead I slept through most of the day. I can’t win. But I still have these yummy glittery baby boomer french tip gingerbread cookie nails to share! (I lied. The cat came and cuddled immediately Read More

Glittery Poinsettia - Hermit Werds - red manicure with a pink accent nail covered with iridescent glitter and freehand painted holly leaves and poinsettia flowers (Robin Moses)

Well, I’m going to be getting out of order, but I haven’t forgotten the nail art prompts that I missed! I really wanted to paint some Robin Moses nail art this month, but I wasn’t interested in snowmen (which is what the prompts were for on Instagram) so I asked 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

Holiday Glitz - Hermit Werds - nail art with a red and green glittery thermal Christmas polish with a ritzy holiday sprig on top

Holiday Glitz

December 2, 2018 Lisa 0

I’ve seen a few red/green thermal polishes come out this year, but I think Shinespark Polish came out with the first one for Christmas when she released it in 2017. I couldn’t resist buying it and I’m so glad I did. This is the first design I painted with it, Read More
