December 5, 2019 Lisa 0

Today I have some nail art depicting Santa’s last vacation before it’s all about getting ready for Christmas. Hit the slopes while you can, Santa! πŸ˜„ Today’s colors were inspired by Pantone’s Sugar Almond for #pantone2019winterchallenge. I did have other colors that might have fit the bill, but these were Read More

Mustard and pink nail art with an owl stamping decal giving you side-eye.

Autumn Owl – BP Review (stamping polish)

November 13, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today the color is pink! (And mustard, which I think looks fantastic combined with pink.) Born Pretty’s “Cosmos Bouquet” from their Candy Color stamping polish set is that perfect pink between this might be red and dark enough to work perfectly against white and black backgrounds. Here’s my Read More

Hope you’re having a Happy Holo-ween! Halloween is just about over so let’s end this with a jack-o-lantern planet full of candy. I’d become an astronaut in that world… …as long as astronauts get good dental plans. 🀣 Products Used Base Polishes: Black Heart’s “Teal Galaxy“, Color Club’s “Beyond“, and Read More

Blurple thermal nail art with skulls and skeletons and a blue and silver rhinestone.

Spooky Skeletons

October 29, 2019 Lisa 0

I put this design together for @clairestelle8challenge’s skeleton prompt, but I was just too slow to get it out. So I decided to hold it back for @glamnailschallenge’s skull prompt. Which in many ways is more fitting since the central piece of this design is a skull rhinestone that I Read More

Don’t Drink and Fly

I’m not terribly great at fluid art just yet, but the colors blending together on today’s nail art just make my heart so happy. Also the witch falling off her broom is pretty hilarious. Ah, the joy of the suffering of others. 🀣 Products Used Fluid Art Polishes: Celestial Cosmetics’ Read More

Fly, Hot Air Balloon

I’ve been trying to find the right design to use for this gorgeous orange holographic polish (Shinespark Polish’s “Poppy Topaz“) and somehow it kept not happening for me. I thought for sure I’d get to it in October, but it didn’t fit any of the Halloween designs I wanted most Read More

A B C...Zzz - Hermit Werds - nail art with holographic corals, salmon pink, and the start of the alphabet until kitty gets tired. Zzzz...

A B C…Zzz

March 14, 2019 Lisa 0

I’d drawn up this design to use the ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ that one of my stamping plates had. I figured I’d pull it out if I had to do another Back to School prompt. But then #AZNailArtChallenge restarted with ‘A’ is for Alphabet and, well, I couldn’t not use Read More

Four Elements of Holo - Hermit Werds - nail art of the four elements and representative animals (blue/dolphin/water, green/horse/earth, orange/scorpion/fire, and yellow/dragonfly/air) with a holographic thermal top coat on top

Four Elements of Holo – BP Review (top coat)

February 11, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] I’d love to create a whole series of nail art based on the elements, but I have other series that I’ve already started and want to round out more first. So today I decided to visit the four basic elements according to Western culture: fire, earth, water, and Read More

Glitter Conch - Hermit Werds - glittery teal nail art with a teal conch shell and flower stamping decal

Glitter Conch

January 16, 2019 Lisa 0

Today I have a simple glittery look using a mermaid stamping plate from Born Pretty. I wasn’t quite ready for mermaids yet, so I used an image of a conch shell. Is it fair to say that mermaids are the second most common fantasy creature in the stamping plate world Read More

We Beet Again - Hermit Werds - purple holographic french tip nail with a punny beet theme and golden gradients

We Beet Again

Where did the month go? LOL Between holiday plans, a small cold, and the name servers losing my site for a few days I’ve ghosted through most of November. The Pokedex challenge fell to the wayside along with all the other challenges. My hope that I’d manage four freehand looks Read More
