Spooky Skeletons

I put this design together for @clairestelle8challenge’s skeleton prompt, but I was just too slow to get it out. So I decided to hold it back for @glamnailschallenge’s skull prompt. Which in many ways is more fitting since the central piece of this design is a skull rhinestone that I Read More

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

It’s late, but it’s still Tell a Fairy Tale Day for a bit longer! I chose The Swan Princess for #NailChallenge’s Fairy Tale prompt because #GlamNailsChallenge also had a Swan prompt and I thought that made a good fit. There are several tales involving swans in the common fairy tale Read More

No review today since all the items from Beauty BigBang were used in yesterday’s design. That said, I thought it was important to post two different designs since there were 12 different kinds of rhinestone in the grid. So today’s look sports the golden heart and round rhinestones with a Read More

The first #GlamNailsChallengeOct prompt of the month was Candy. I did have a design with candy drawn out, but I think I want to save it for Christmas. So I did a search for candy patterns and everything Halloween seemed to either be candy corn or wrapped candies with something Read More

Thankfully Halloween - Hermit Werds - purple magnetic polish with spooky stamping (spider, ghouls, bats, haunted house) on top

Thankfully Halloween

I’m back with one of my recreations of last year’s designs that I wasn’t happy with. I’ve skipped around to return to a purple magnetic polish look that I made to express my thankfulness on how much I enjoy painting nails with my stepdaughter who often asks for Halloween stamps. Read More

I tried a new Instagram challenge this time: @ColoursWithinWomen. When this group goes with a color theme, they want to see three nails of only that color and an accent nail. (No rules for thumbs though. Woo!) I have a lot of neglected brown polishes that for some reason I’m Read More

Glitter My Heart - Hermit Werds - baby boomer french tips with glitter and glitter heart placement

Glitter My Heart

Confession time! I’ve had this set of glitter polishes for several years and I have never used it. Which is why it’s in its original packaging with a sexy discount sticker. $.33 a bottle is still a loss if you never use the polish. No, wait. I’m sure I can Read More
