October 26, 2020 Lisa 3

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I can’t believe Week 4 is over! Subject-wise I was all over the place, but I still went with a lot of animals like scorpion and lobster which are both part of the Phylum Read More

Inktober 2020 – Week 3

October 19, 2020 Lisa 6

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve made it to the halfway point and a little past it. Woof! I also didn’t finish one of my ink drawing on the day I was supposed to and had to play catch Read More

Orange nail art modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch.

The Scream

October 2, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I’m kicking off my Halloween season with a modernist interpretation on The Scream painting by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch. Because it’s the season of screaming! (Except don’t. Because that creates more water droplets. 😱) I was really hoping to make the simple lines of the stamping image pop Read More

Baby boomer french tip nails with a Wonder Woman water decal.

Wonder Woman

March 10, 2020 Lisa 2

I went even simpler with my simple nail art today with a single Wonder Woman water decal and one little row of stars to follow my french tip. Why? Because I’m still steeped in my delusion that I can also finish #liganailistachallenge’s March prompt list. Only two to go, right? Read More

Spooky Pusheen - Hermit Werds - a Pusheen ghost emerging from a jack-o-lantern freehand painted on a royal blue glitter-y jelly base

Spooky Pusheen

October 13, 2018 Lisa 0

Pusheen is a pretty well-known little cat. She appeared on the internet in 2010 in a comic strip written by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff and by the time I realized she was a Thing with a Name, she was everywhere. (I’m culturally slow sometimes.) While the original creators continue Read More

Wrath of the Dragon - Hermit Werds - purple nail art with the Maleficent dragon from Sleeping Beauty surrounded by blue glow in the dark flames.

Beauty BigBang Review – glow in the dark powder J2103-12A

October 10, 2018 Lisa 0

I’d originally meant to review this glow in the dark powder with the bat manicure that you will be seeing tomorrow, but #liganailistachallenge had a dragon prompt and I had this lovely image of Malifecent as a dragon on Maniology’s Happily Never After BM-XL193 stamping plate. How could I not Read More

The Simpsons - Homer the Donut - Hermit Werds - freehand nail art of Homer Simpson turned into a donut head with his catchprase "Doh"

The Simpsons: Homer the Donut

June 3, 2018 Lisa 0

Today I’m combining Nail Crazies Unite’s prompt of Inspired by TV Show with a belated National Donut Day holiday to bring you some Homer Simpson nail art. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched The Simpsons on a regular basis, but I still remember it fondly. Lisa Simpson will Read More

Hobbies of the Red Queen - Hermit Werds - freehand paintings of the Red Queen's hobbies in black and red: croquet, baking tarts, collecting red things and ordering executions

Hobbies of the Red Queen

February 26, 2018 Lisa 4

#NailCraziesUnite’s latest prompt is Red and Black Hobbies. I was rather stumped on this one since I didn’t feel like doing more nail art on reading and that’s my second major hobby. So… It was time to defeat my tendency to get mentally stuck on what I don’t want to Read More

Gudetama - Hermit Werds - Sanrio's Gudetama water decals on a white background

Gudetama

November 5, 2017 Lisa 0

I love Gudetama. If you’re not familiar with him, he’s a character owned by Sanrio (i.e. Hello Kitty!) that appears in short animated videos played in Japan. He is a very lazy egg and doesn’t want to get up. They’re really cute videos as long as you don’t watch them Read More

Roald Dahl's The Witches - Hermit Werds - witch looming over tiny mouse that was once a boy

Roald Dahl’s The Witches

October 31, 2017 Lisa 2

I grew up reading Roald Dahl and my three favorite books of his are Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches, and The BFG. I was never fond of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory books and enjoyed Matilda but… I had my sister looking out for me so, while I was Read More
