Inktober 2020 – Week 3

October 19, 2020 Lisa 6

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve made it to the halfway point and a little past it. Woof! I also didn’t finish one of my ink drawing on the day I was supposed to and had to play catch Read More

Tomb of Snow White - Hermit Werds - horror-themed Snow White nails featuring skeleton of Snow White and her funeral flowers on a grey and black nail art with rose to green to gold flakies and shimmer

Snow White’s Tomb

October 28, 2018 Lisa 0

Sometimes the prince never comes. Poor Snow White. I painted this for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s month-long Halloween theme, #GlamNailsChallengeOct’s Skull, and #LiganailistaChallenge’s Tomb vs Castle prompt. I kinda included both prompts for the latter since we have a castle and Snow White is surely in her tomb. I am so pleased with Read More

Wrath of the Dragon - Hermit Werds - purple nail art with the Maleficent dragon from Sleeping Beauty surrounded by blue glow in the dark flames.

Beauty BigBang Review – glow in the dark powder J2103-12A

October 10, 2018 Lisa 0

I’d originally meant to review this glow in the dark powder with the bat manicure that you will be seeing tomorrow, but #liganailistachallenge had a dragon prompt and I had this lovely image of Malifecent as a dragon on Maniology’s Happily Never After BM-XL193 stamping plate. How could I not Read More

DC Heros - Aquaman - Hermit Werds - green, scale-y, and trident-y nail art for DC's Aquaman with holographic glitter on top.

DC Heroes – Aquaman

August 30, 2018 Lisa 0

I just finished watching Justice League and–having watched Batman vs Superman previously–it was a little weird that Batman became the comic relief when Flash was also the comic relief and Affleck’s Batman was super dark originally. I wish they’d be more consistent with their character development. I did enjoy the Read More

Bunnies in Black - Hermit Werds - neon shooting stars behind weird suited bunnies with a UFO overhead

Bunnies in Black

July 20, 2018 Lisa 0

Sometimes you just get a funny idea in your head and you have to do it. I had a stamping plate with these weird suited bunnies and they gave me a brain worm that I just couldn’t shake. I had to riff off of Men in Black with them. I’m Read More

Chartreuse Jungle Book - Hermit Werds - chartreuse and magenta nail art featuring Mowgli, Shere Khan, and Kaa from The Jungle Book

Chartreuse Jungle Book

June 10, 2018 Lisa 0

Today I have a beautiful melding of two challenge prompts: #WhenColoursCollide’s Chartreuse + something and #NailChallengeCollaborative’s Inspired by a Book. I knew I wanted to combine these two prompts, but I didn’t have a particular book in mind yet. I needed to be careful because Chartreuse had to be the Read More

Hobbies of the Red Queen - Hermit Werds - freehand paintings of the Red Queen's hobbies in black and red: croquet, baking tarts, collecting red things and ordering executions

Hobbies of the Red Queen

February 26, 2018 Lisa 4

#NailCraziesUnite’s latest prompt is Red and Black Hobbies. I was rather stumped on this one since I didn’t feel like doing more nail art on reading and that’s my second major hobby. So… It was time to defeat my tendency to get mentally stuck on what I don’t want to Read More

Roald Dahl's The Witches - Hermit Werds - witch looming over tiny mouse that was once a boy

Roald Dahl’s The Witches

October 31, 2017 Lisa 2

I grew up reading Roald Dahl and my three favorite books of his are Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches, and The BFG. I was never fond of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory books and enjoyed Matilda but… I had my sister looking out for me so, while I was Read More

The Langoliers - Hermit Werds - past-eating Langoliers from Stephen King's story and movie chasing the plane

The Langoliers

October 28, 2017 Lisa 4

I binge on Stephen King for a while and and then not pick up a book by him for years. He’s such an amazing storyteller, but he does tend to kill a lot of his characters and I tend to like a different kind of world building. LOL (Someday, however, Read More

Star Wars - Hermit Werds - simple nail art featuring Star Wars' dark side

Star Wars and Gardening Book

September 26, 2017 Lisa 0

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I Read More
