Year of the Ox (x2)

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More

It’s Christmas! And I have one last reindeer/Christmas mani to share. It has been a month for reindeer nail art since this is the fourth time they’re showing up. Although if you count how many designs I’ve repainted it’s been all reindeer all the time for me. 😭 I decided Read More

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More

It’s funny, I have a lot to say today, but none of it feels like it belongs in the intro. This is a new rose-themed nail art that uses layered stamping, a technique I avoid because it’s extra labor intensive for me. No more! (kinda) Also, photos were taken of Read More

I updated to WordPress 5.0 just now and it broke all of the nail polish and stamping plate links. I am working on fixing them, just be aware they aren’t working right now. Also, the Gutenberg editor is dog barf to write posts with. I’ll give it a little more 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

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
