Coral, Mint, and White - Hermit Werds - cool chevron and geometric butterfly/flowering plant stamped on white and coral gradient

Coral, Mint, and White

July 24, 2018 Lisa 2

This was a fun combination of #ClaireStelle8Challenge’s Chevron, #NailChallengeCollaborative’s Geometric, and #WhenColoursCollide’s coral/mint/white prompts. I even got to knock out several items in my collection that I hadn’t used yet. That’s always a bonus. I kinda wish I had more to say, but this all ended up coming together very Read More

Unicorns Choose Mint Chocolate Chip - Hermit Werds - ice cream and unicorn nail art featuring mint chocolate chip, strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate with sprinkles scoops of ice cream on a cone

Unicorns Choose Mint Chocolate Chip

July 19, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s time for ice cream nail art! So I finally dug out my Turtle Tootsie ice cream polishes and used them for an ice cream mani. I’m actually pretty pleased that I used them all for something else first because it shows I was right to pick them. Versatile, that’s Read More

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

The Robots Remain

June 29, 2018 Lisa 0

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

The Simpsons - Homer the Donut - Hermit Werds - freehand nail art of Homer Simpson turned into a donut head with his catchprase "Doh"

The Simpsons: Homer the Donut

June 3, 2018 Lisa 0

Today I’m combining Nail Crazies Unite’s prompt of Inspired by TV Show with a belated National Donut Day holiday to bring you some Homer Simpson nail art. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched The Simpsons on a regular basis, but I still remember it fondly. Lisa Simpson will Read More

Philippine Monkey-eating Eagle - Hermit Werds - freehand nail art of a Philippine Monkey-eating Eagle on a dark green background with fleeing monkey silhouettes

Endangered Fav: the Phillippine Monkey-eating Eagle

May 30, 2018 Lisa 0

I fell in love with the Philippine Monkey-eating Eagle years ago while watching a documentary on raptors (I think it was World of Raptors, 2003, but I’m not sure). It is among the largest eagles in the world in terms of length and wing surface and measures around 3 feet Read More

Dusty Rose & Green Wedding - Hermit Werds - dusty rose and green nail art with beautiful succulents, ruffles, and bride

Dusty Rose & Green Wedding

May 25, 2018 Lisa 4

Okay, not the most original title, but it’s exactly what this nail art is about! Also, I was going to say this is my first set of wedding nails, but I have a #NailFail with wedding birds that I’m just not going to link to… /whistle I do have, like…one(?) Read More

Lavender Coffee - Hermit Werds - nail art with freehand painted lavender to celebrate lavender-flavored coffee

Lavender Coffee

May 24, 2018 Lisa 0

Lavender coffee is a miracle of deliciousness in itself, but the real surprise is that I’m posting this month’s coffee mani on not the last day possible. Possibly it is because I am turning it in for #NailChallengeCollaborative’s “Spring Colors” prompt. I just hope I do as well next month. Read More

F is for Flowers - Hermit Werds - falsies painted bright orange with gold flakies and a beautiful white calla lily stamping decal

‘F’ is for Flower

May 4, 2018 Lisa 0

My nails on both hands were covered with designs I couldn’t bear to part with yet so, for the first time in months, we have a design on falsies. This is for #AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘F’ is for Flowers prompt. I wanted to use more of the stamping plates from the Bundle Read More

It's Raining Fish - Hermit Werds - outlines of a surreal underwater landscape complete with a green girl under an umbrella.

It’s Raining Fish

January 28, 2018 Lisa 0

So, yeah. I’m behind. Between playing Don’t Starve (the old distraction, which I haven’t even touched once for over 24 hours /sob) and moving my blog and breaking it (the new distraction, shoot me), I missed a few prompts from #nailartchallenge. Namely Fish and Umbrella. I figure my previous prompt Read More

Happy New Year (2018) - Hermit Werds - black and silver firework stamping on a blurple background

Happy New Year! (2018)

January 2, 2018 Lisa 2

Well, I didn’t post these on New Years, but the base polish was on my nails! And, really, that’s the problem. Because the indie maker of Bee’s Knees Lacquer will tell you that this polish is a nail art community favorite for good reasons and I had a hard time Read More
