Cool for the Winter

I’m back with a new #TheInspirationChallenge nail art. This time we had an image of a model in a skirt with a lot of sheer black tiers. I loved how the bright aqua color of the wall behind her blended with the sheer black on the skirt to create this Read More

Beetles Are Just Warrior Butterflies

My husband has gotten used to me shoving my hands in his face and squealing ‘look-ee!’ Well, I finished these after he went to bed and I wasn’t quite awake yet when I said “Look, husband, butterflies!” I think it’s fairly obvious these are not butterflies and I corrected myself Read More

It’s time for more #26GreatNailArtIdeas and the prompt is Black and Neon. When neon prompts come up, I plan to use at least a few of my Sinful Colors’ collection. Partially it’s because I don’t have much else, but I also just like them. They are the first collection of Read More

I started looking at buying from KBShimmer when they collaborated with one of the YouTubers I regularly watch. MissHollyBerries not only did a swatch and review of their Fall Collaboration Collection but had made a contribution of her own with #squadghouls. I knew I was getting it. It is hands-down Read More

I decided it was time to use my last untried Zoya polish. So when #clairestelle8challenge came up with a lace prompt, I said “Let’s see how this works with a pond mani.” I think it worked well. I slathered on a layer of “Paloma”, stamped the netting pattern, more jelly, Read More

Happy Birthday! - Hermit Werds - Halloween-themed happy birthday nail art

I have three different manicures to share today. I’ve already posted the first two to my Instagram but was too exhausted/busy to write about them more thoroughly. On the other hand, I de-stashed around twenty-five skirts from my closet. It…doesn’t even look like I made a dent. Clearly I’m going Read More

Cemetery Roses - Hermit Werds - cemetery with skull and rose vines gone wild

Cemetery Roses

I usually avoid mixing freehand with stamping because the line quality typically ends up being too different. I think I got away with it this time. Maybe. This nail art comes from the blend of #clairestelle8challenge’s Cemetery prompt and #firedazedoct2017’s Skulls and Roses prompt. Huh. Maybe I should have pluralled Read More

The Church of the Transient Butterfly

September 9, 2017 Lisa 6

Rumors that the Church of the Transient Butterfly was started by the Stained Glass Worker’s Guild have always been denied as the darkest kind of blasphemy by all members. “The Transient Butterfly teaches us that life is short and yet beautiful.” says the current head priest and president of the Read More

Hand me the prompts Metallic and Stripes and you can bet I’m going to come up with something steampunk first off and go with it. Fortunately I had a beautiful holographic brown metallic polish in my order from Shinespark Polish to play with. It was unfortunately dark outside when I Read More

One White Base, Four Summer Looks - Hermit Werds - Four different summer looks created on a white gel base

One White Base, Four Summer Looks

August 16, 2017 Lisa 5

I haven’t had a new blog post in two days, but believe me I’ve been keeping busy (or you can check my instagram account if you need proof). I was watching one of Jessface90‘s polish swatching videos and she made a remark about her white gel base starting to peel Read More
