Lions Want Meat Not Flowers - Hermit Werds - bright yellow and red nail art featuring a grumpy lion, flowers, and ham

Lions Want Meat Not Flowers + Life Update

April 15, 2018 Lisa 0

I’ve been totally neglecting my nails lately. In fact, they’ve just had clear polish on them for over a week! The horror! Luckily I have a few manis that I haven’t shared with you yet and one of them fits #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt of Things that are Round. The flowers are Read More

Juicy Watermelon

This is a design I’ve been wanting to tackle for over a year now. So when #NailCraziesUnite had a Sweet Fruit prompt, there was no question what I was going to do. After all, I’d already gotten strawberries out of my system last year. Well, as far out of my Read More

Mystery Berries - Hermit Werds - brown veil technique over white gel polish with red berries stamped on top

Mystery Berries

February 5, 2018 Lisa 0

The veil technique has hit the nail art community and I wanted to try it out sooner rather than later. Lucky for me my nails were already painted white. The basic idea is to drip one or two drops of your polish into a cup of warm water and let Read More

Sushi Cats - Hermit Werds - cute nail art of sushi cats colored in watercolor style

Sushi Cats

January 31, 2018 Lisa 0

I’ve been meaning to use these images for years and apparently this was the month. Sushi Cats! I am trying out a new (for me) challenge #AdultsColoringBookNails (Your Favorite Pet). I think these turned out rather well even though I used a glossy top coat and had a really hard Read More

Peppermint Coffees - Hermit Werds - peppermint coffee theme with two freehand painted white reindeer wearing red scarves

Peppermint Coffees

December 31, 2017 Lisa 0

One of the great joys of the holiday season is the arrival of peppermint coffee creamers in the grocery store. Such an effortless way to make coffee magical in the morning. I like pumpkin spice coffee just fine, but I love peppermint coffee even more. Yum, yum, yum. So when Read More

Un-beet-able - Hermit Werds - kawaii beet planted in the ground.

Un-beat-able

December 18, 2017 Lisa 0

I’m trying to do more nail art that I just want to do and fewer challenges and what better way to manage that than to dedicate an entire manicure to beets! I love canned pickled beets. I eat them on their own and with salad, all while being ultra paranoid Read More

Pumpkin Spice Latte - Hermit Werds - rich orange-y colors stamped with coffee images and a pumpkin

Pumpkin Spice Latte

November 30, 2017 Lisa 0

It has been pumpkin everything season for a while now. I’m not the hugest fan of non-savory pumpkin foods, but I do enjoy a good pumpkin latte (even if I do love peppermint and gingerbread more). I was looking at #coffeenails on Instagram and it is so full of just Read More

Squash It Good - Hermit Werds - red/orange reciprocal gradient made with leaves

Squash It Good

November 23, 2017 Lisa 0

It has been a long time since I attempted a reciprocal gradient. In fact, I’d have to check my photos to even see if I have done one since I started this blog. I had no idea what I was going to do but, since most nail artists seemed to Read More

Happy Overeating Day - Hermit Werds - traditional thanksgiving feast with turkey and pumpkin

Happy Overeating Day

November 21, 2017 Lisa 0

Since my Thankful-prompted nail art wasn’t at all American Thanksgiving Day-themed, I thought I’d haul out my Born Pretty BP-191 stamping plate and paint something more traditional on my nails. It was well-timed since I went to an early Thanksgiving get-together with these on. I kept the color scheme and 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
