Neon Web - Hermit Werds - neon yellow behind a bold spider web and skull-marked spider

Neon Web

I didn’t put it on my list, but I kinda wanted to paint something Halloween-ish with a neon yellow background so I combined it with #AZNailArtChallenge’s delightful ‘S’ is for Spider prompt. I used it as a clearing house to finish up a bunch of little goals and the result Read More

Call me a dork if you will, but I have so many Things I want to paint for Halloween. Oh, the lists I have made trying to plan things out so I wouldn’t miss a big want-to-do for a small one. I have lists for polishes, stamping plates, and color Read More

Pusheen is a pretty well-known little cat. She appeared on the internet in 2010 in a comic strip written by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff and by the time I realized she was a Thing with a Name, she was everywhere. (I’m culturally slow sometimes.) While the original creators continue Read More

October 11, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] This is it! My final Beauty BigBang review for the month. Today we’re looking at BBB-001, a circle plate with four full-nail images and four smaller images. They’re all quite fun, but since I was going to create a full look with them, I decided to stick to Read More

Today I am bringing you some super purple grape nail art for #glamnailschallengesept. At the start of this month I finally went through my helmers and recorded all of the polishes I haven’t used yet on the blog. I had 52 Sinful Colors/Shine polishes listed alone, 150 total unlisted polishes. Read More

August 3, 2018 Lisa 0

[Press Sample] It’s International Watermelon Day and Tena (@nailsit) put together a collaboration to celebrate. I thought it was the perfect time to review Beauty BigBangs’ XL-001 stamping plate since 2 of the 14 images have watermelons on them. If you’ve been reading me for long, you would know my Read More

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

Jelly Depths - Hermit Werds - underwater nail art with a bright blue jelly polish, lavender waves, and stamps of squid, a sea turtle, and a whale

I love playing with transparency and depth and this jelly polish by Ms. Sparkle with all its delightful glitters was a delight to work with. I was so sad when this design chipped off my nails before I could throw some gel top coat on top. Must remember to time Read More

On Violet Waters - Hermit Werds - nail art of origami water birds on a white geometric background with a soft pink to white gradient

On Violet Waters

July 8, 2018 Lisa 0

Really, I almost titled this “On Violent Waters” to see if people would notice the ‘n’ and put a shark on my thumb. Look out, birds! Anyway, this was for #WhenColoursCollide’s pink/purple/white theme and ended up being for #NailArtChallengeCollaborative’s Geometric theme as well. That worked out well. Really I just Read More

The Robots Remain - Hermit Werds - nail art of little robots against a galactic sky of stars

The Robots Remain

It’s been a while since I used the polishes from Sinful Colors’ Luxe Fragments collection. I love their bright jelly formulas and the flakes of glitter sponged over a sheer white gel polish really pop. I used gradient stamping to add my stars so they could fade into the background Read More
