Monster of Many Eyes

October 26, 2019 Lisa 0

Today I get to play with a theme that I love but haven’t really tried yet: eyes! So, thanks, @glamnailschallenge! Now someone else needs to give me an excuse for more eyeball nail art because I have more to give in this area. I think it should be obvious that Read More

A delicately gruesome zombie nail art using a translucent shimmery orange polish and soft metallic green zombies.

Zombie Apocalypse

October 17, 2019 Lisa 0

Today’s nail art is a combination of delicate and gruesome with zombies pulling terrible faces on a soft, glittery orange/magenta background. I’m sure they’re friendly zombies just trying to get out a hello around their rotting tongues…🤣 Products Used Base Polishes: Femme Fatale’s “City of the Sun“ with an acetone-thinned Read More

Creepy Carnival - Hermit Werds - carousel monster stamping decals to ride when visiting the creepy carnival on a shimmery purple background

Creepy Carnival

I bought Moyou London’s Gothic Collection 01 stamping plate because I loved the little carousel critters so much. It felt very fitting to use them in a design for @clairestelle8challenge’s Creepy Carnival prompt. I love carousels, especially the creepy looking ones. And they can be found at carnivals sometimes!

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

A Mauve of Monsters - Hermit Werds - monochrome mauve nail art of a group of monsters

Beauty BigBang Review – XL-028 stamping plate

October 2, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] Group scene nail art is a lot of fun and something I haven’t tackled yet even though I have several stamping plates with them. Today I finally embraced the look with an image from Beauty BigBang’s XL-028 stamping plate. It’s a fun image with a lot of silly Read More

Godzilla - Hermit Werds - freehand nail art featuring everyone's favorite Kaijū, Godzilla, attacking Tokyo (glows in the dark)

Godzilla

July 1, 2018 Lisa 0

When #GlamNailsChallengeJune said “city”, I thought “giant Kaijū destroying the city” because I’ve been wanting to paint that sort of thing for a while. It was just too tempting since I have glow in the dark powders to use. I also felt like I could count this as an Inspired Read More

Monsters' Ball - Hermit Werds - happy orange monsters dancing the night away

Monsters’ Ball

October 29, 2017 Lisa 2

The ghouls are out and dancing! I had two stamping plates with cute monsters from the SP line so I decided to double stamp randomly from them for this nail art. I did this on my cindy hand with its nails filed down really far because I was tired of Read More

The Langoliers - Hermit Werds - past-eating Langoliers from Stephen King's story and movie chasing the plane

The Langoliers

October 28, 2017 Lisa 4

I binge on Stephen King for a while and and then not pick up a book by him for years. He’s such an amazing storyteller, but he does tend to kill a lot of his characters and I tend to like a different kind of world building. LOL (Someday, however, Read More

Shuttering of Stygian Skies - Hermit Werds - post apocalyptic sunset with elder god monster beneath

Sun-flower and Shuttering of Stygian Skies

August 23, 2017 Lisa 0

Right now I have two manicures to share. 🙂 To start, it’s fun to pun and since there are two different prompts for sunflowers this month that I plan to do, I decided to make one of them a pun. With the eclipse happening so recently, I thought it was Read More
