The Little Mermaid - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8challenge (book/movie)

The Little Mermaid

June 24, 2017 Lisa 2

Today’s #clairestellechallenge theme is book/movie. I decided to do The Little Mermaid, but I wasn’t interested in following the color scheme from the Disney movie even though I gave it a direct nod on my thumb. The Little Mermaid holds a special place in my heart. It’s the first animated Read More

Monkey Business - Hermit Werds - #aznailartchallenge (jungle)

Monkey Business

June 22, 2017 Lisa 2

#aznailartchallenge on Instagram is on J for Jungle and #30daysofcolour has a holo theme this week. While poison dart frogs would have also made me happy, they’d be harder to do with the holo polishes I have so I decided to go with monkeys instead. Also, it allowed me to Read More

Holographic Cactus - Hermit Werds - #aznailartchallenge (holographic)

The Holographic Cactus

May 31, 2017 Lisa 0

I keep missing the deadline for the #aznailartchallenge on Instagram. This time it was holographic and I made it! I had Colores de Carol polishes I haven’t had a chance to use yet and a wonderful nail plate by ZJoy with cacti that also needed to be used. I unfortunately Read More

Fox in the Red Wood

April 18, 2017 Lisa 0

I’ve been wanting to do a red and yellow manicure for a while so when the prompt for 26 Great Nail Art Ideas landed on Pastel to bold gradient with something on top, I felt like it was a good time to do it. My bottle of Colores de Carol’s Read More

Easter Egg

April 15, 2017 Lisa 0

So I was moving all of my crafting and Stuff into a different room in the house (or one room instead of scattered all over the place) and I knew my nail was splitting and I didn’t fix it so of course I tore it off while moving a box. Read More

Hippie Boho - Hermit Werds - Nail Crazies Unite!

Hippie/Boho

April 8, 2017 Lisa 2

The Hippie/Boho styles of nail art are so pretty but somehow they are just not the first looks I go for. It was really funny to explore the wonderful combinations of color and pattern in these style movements. Base Polishes: Colores de Carol’s “Aria”, Sinful Color’s “Fig” Nail Stamping Polishes: Read More

Green Freestyle - Hermit Werds - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas (green freestyle)

Green Freestyle

April 4, 2017 Lisa 2

Only a little late for 26 Great Nail Art Ideas. There was a debate about what the topic meant, but the great thing about this group is that all interpretations are welcome. So I decided freestyle to me meant Dance! Also: fan brush stripped. I did some of that too. Read More

Lady in Sparkles - Hermit Werds

Lady in Sparkle

March 22, 2017 Lisa 0

I’m behind on the nail art challenges I normally try to do, so instead of doing them I decided to stamp some nail art over the one polish manicure I’d already been wearing for three days. Normally I would not wear one color of polish let alone do nail art Read More

Saint Patrick's Snake - Hermit Werds - 30 Days of Colour Challenge

Saint Patrick’s Snake

March 13, 2017 Lisa 6

The fact that the 30 Days of Colour’s prompt for this week is green and it’s also going to be Saint Patrick’s Day on Friday is probably not coincidental… It’s a little weird that American’s celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day the way we do. I mean, Irish immigrants = St. Patrick’s Read More
