A medium olive/chartreuse nail art with luck, playing cards, dice, and heart/club/spade/diamond stamping decals.

National Playing Card Day

December 28, 2020 Lisa 2

Did you know that today is National Card Playing day? I have known it for the past three years since I keep meaning to paint some card-themed nail art. I keep collecting these card playing stamping plates and I needed an excuse to use them. And I just kept missing Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who Read More

Olive Christmas art featuring accent nails with poinsettia stamping decals and a wee bird and holographic olive polish.

The Poinsettia

December 22, 2020 Lisa 2

Today I proudly prove that I not only have enough green nail polish to paint yet another monochrome green mani, but I have enough olive polishes to do it. *high fives self* I’ve rather struggled to put together monochrome looks with other colors, but this olive mani came together like Read More

Quilting themed nail art with decals of sewing machine, bobbins, cloth swatches, and patterns to make a beautiful pink and green quilt.

Quilting with Love

November 20, 2020 Lisa 2

When the prompt ‘Q’ is for Quilt came up for the @aznailartchallenge I immediately thought about my dragon quilt nail art where I literally painted and then stamped on square swatches of polish and applied them to some false nails. I really loved the concept and wanted to revisit it, Read More

A rich green mani with two accent nails. The first has a brown jelly base and many small avocado decals and the second is a closeup of an avocado with the pit showing.

Avocado My Heart

November 10, 2020 Lisa 2

Because I love avocado. Maybe it’s considered basic to love them, but so what? Load up your toast with some mashed green goodness and maybe enjoy this Comedy Central skit defending being basic. Because we all need the little things to help lift up our spirits and keep us from Read More

Bright celery green nail art with a skull and crossed swords stamped on top.

Skull and Swords

October 17, 2020 Lisa 2

It feels a little lame to say this, but I had to color in the stamping decal of the skull twice because my brain registered the sword tips as horns on the skull so I used the wrong color on them. Woops! Anyway, this nail art falls into a general Read More

Bright green nail art with floral nail stamping in pink and white.

Seasonally Inappropriate Flowers

January 5, 2020 Lisa 1

I am back with another design for #Pantone2019WinterChallenge. If you only read my blog and don’t follow me on Instagram, you’ve missed the last two. But I promise I will write a post about them soon and even throw in a third design. All of them are for Christmas though. Read More

Super green nail art with a silver and green nail charm.

Eden Revisited

November 17, 2019 Lisa 1

Woops! I looked at Ine’s rules for the #pantone2019winterchallenge and realized I should have had some green on my accent nail. I was about to post it with at least an apology, but I realized I still had the design on my nails and I only needed to change one. Read More

Busy Bees 2.0 - Hermit Werds - pink and green nail art featuring bee and pink cone flower stamping decals

Busy Bees 2.0

December 13, 2018 Lisa 0

I have completely busted off my index finger’s nail so while I’m fixing that (and the broken links, ugh) I have another recreation from 2017’s #NailFails. My biggest crime with this one was using KleanColor’s metallic polish to stamp something detailed. It looks fine until you top coat and then Read More

Green Coffee - Hermit Werds - holographic green coffee nail art with coffee berry bush

Green Coffee + a year’s worth of coffee nails

October 1, 2018 Lisa 0

Happy International Coffee Day! Or…belated America’s National Coffee Day… (Seriously, America, pick up your skirts and shuffle over a few days so we can all be together.) I thought I’d celebrate by making sure the end of my “year” of coffee nail art fell on this day so there’s been Read More
