Green Sequins - Hermit Werds - green sequins in three sizes arranged in triangle on nails

Beauty BigBang Review – Green Sequins

February 1, 2018 Lisa 0

Press Sample Today I am reviewing the set of sequins (2.5MM, 2MM, and 1.5MM) that Maggie from Beauty BigBang sent to me for review. First, I tried using the three different sizes of iridescent sequins in one look. I used the largest sequins first and each layer used a smaller Read More

Lawns Are Materialism

I’ve been really bad about getting anything done lately. I did manage to cut my own hair for the first time last night. I think I need to take off a bit more on the top, but so far it’s actually one of the better haircuts I’ve had. Mind you, Read More

Christmas Cards - Hermit Werds - winter-themed mailing stamps and envelopes on a sage green crelly

Christmas Cards

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

Glimmering Trees

I started looking at buying from KBShimmer when they collaborated with one of the YouTubers I regularly watch. MissHollyBerries not only did a swatch and review of their Fall Collaboration Collection but had made a contribution of her own with #squadghouls. I knew I was getting it. It is hands-down Read More

Cozy Sweater

Alas, I can’t wear bulky sweaters unless I want them to make me look extra bulky, but they always look so cozy! I have to discipline myself to not buy them at the store because every time I do I end up just getting rid of it again. When #GlamNailsChallenge Read More

The Parasol Collector - Hermit Werds - a series of parasol decals and a victorian lady on a blue and green smoosh marble

The Parasol Collector

November 15, 2017 Lisa 0

This was a combination of prompts: #WhenColoursCollide’s Blue and Green only, #GlamNailsChallenge’s Umbrella, and #GgfNaChallenge’s Steampunk. I haven’t really be following #Ggf, but steampunk! I am not sure I really covered that even though I did use parasols instead of umbrellas and a Victorian lady (whom I have used before). Read More

Green Giraffe - Hermit Werds - holographic green mani with a giraffe and green giraffe animal print

Green Giraffe

November 10, 2017 Lisa 2

This prompt brought to you by my need to use alliteration. Oh, and the prompt Animal Print in the Wrong Colors for #26GreatNailArtIdeas (and also the Nail Challenge Collaborative’s similar month-long theme), the letter ‘G’, and the color green. Obviously. No, seriously, I was going to do a pink tiger Read More

Squirrel Park

November 8, 2017 Lisa 2

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

Oktoberfest - Hermit Werds - celebrating Germany's Oktoberfest with a couple of beers

Oktoberfest

October 7, 2017 Lisa 0

When I think of things like Oktoberfest, I naturally think of booze. Beer, though. Less exciting for me. A lot of different places have started throwing celebrations with the same name but Wikipedia seems to think this is essentially German. I hopefully didn’t pick any patterns that were too far Read More
