I really should be going to bed right now, so this post is going to be short and sweet except for the large amounts of photos because omg this magnetic polish is so very pretty. And luckily pretty easy to capture, unlike my Spirit of the Wolf mani. I need Read More

A Valentine's Day candy nail art with nail foil-filled candy stamping decals all on a dusty blue to magenta thermal polish with red to copper flakies.

Foil Candies

A while ago I had a brief delusion that I would use gilding nail foils more. They are fun and shiny! So I bought four more colors of them, none of which are used in this candy nail art design, and none of which have been used for over a Read More

The Fishery - Hermit Werds - matte black nail art with a golden koi fish and glossy stamping

The Fishery

November 24, 2020 Lisa 2

Today we’re journeying to the past and a fishy mani that I painted clear back in 2019. What a wonderful year (compared to this year). 😜 It kind of blows my mind that people can spend several thousand dollars to purchase one koi fish, but yes, they do. I think Read More

Coppery magnetic nail art with spirit animal wolf stamping images (or werewolf if that's how you see it).

Spirit of the Wolf

Today’s theme brought to you by the @AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘W’ is for Wolf prompt and my personal goal to use all my holiday stamping plates this year. Also, my heart has been stolen by a magnetic polish. And I suck at using them so that says a lot… Products used Base Read More

Magnetic Sol - Hermit Werds - nail art featuring a sun-baked landscape on a magnetic khaki background with a golden scatter of glitter "stars"

Magnetic Sol – BBB Review (magnetic gel polish)

February 19, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Wow. I can’t believe I’ve reached the end of my reviews. Having to stop painting my nails because I was reacting to the fumes really backed everything up and now reviewing feels like the new norm. I picked this last polish because I found the khaki-looking nature of Read More

Wisdom Under Wraps - Hermit Werds - gold/copper/black mummy owl nail art with black crackle top coat

Wisdom Under Wraps

The only thing cuter than a mummy owl would be a mummy cat. I’m sure there’s a stamping plate with one out there somewhere. Moyou London has one I think… Anyway, I have the owl from Born Pretty’s Halloween L004. It’s super cute so I decided to make it the Read More

Halloween Silhouettes - Hermit Werds - long, tall stamped silhouettes of a witch, devil, demon, skeleton, and witch on metallic rainbow coffin falsies

Halloween Silhouettes

This was a set I’d wanted to do for a while because I’ve owned my DXE stamping plates for so long, but I didn’t have enough long and tall silhouettes to make a set of five until Beauty BigBang sent me their XL-028 stamping plate. Set complete! This nail art Read More

Metallic Stars - Hermit Werds - water marble nail art with a rainbow of metallic polishes and silver star outlines

@nailsmyth posted an amaaazing metallic water marble using KleanColor polishes and I had them so I really wanted to try my hand at it too. The water marbling gods were not with me even with the humidifier on. The polishes were just drying too fast for me to get any Read More

In a Garden, Darkly

I have been part of the nail artist community on Instagram for about a year now and I recently found out one of the ways I’ve left myself out of the loop. Stories are apparently being used to announce that someone is putting a birthday collage together. Then anyone who Read More

Eye of the (Domesticated) Tiger - Hermit Werds - metallic oranges and pinks stamped over with the black stripes of a cat

Eye of the (Domesticated) Tiger

I just can’t do enough cat nail art, obviously. The hard part of this mani was settling on which metallic polish colors I wanted to use because I’d always planned on using a bunch and then having black as my one color. It’s not cheating if you were plotting it Read More
