Fly, Hot Air Balloon - Hermit Werds - Orange monochrome hot air balloon nail art with holographic nail polish

Fly, Hot Air Balloon

April 19, 2019 Lisa 0

I’ve been trying to find the right design to use for this gorgeous orange holographic polish (Shinespark Polish’s “Poppy Topaz“) and somehow it kept not happening for me. I thought for sure I’d get to it in October, but it didn’t fit any of the Halloween designs I wanted most Read More

Watercolor Cactus - Hermit Werds - nail stamped cactus arrangement colored with watercolor paints

Watercolor Cactus

April 11, 2019 Lisa 2

I’ve painted my nails with white gel polish again and it’s time for some of my favorite kind of nail art: watercolor! I painted this one for #AZNailArtChallenge’s ‘C’ is for Cactus prompt, but I missed the collage deadline by minutes because I kept adding more details with the watercolor. Read More

Life's a Beach - Hermit Werds - tropical green pond jelly nail art with palm trees

Life’s a Beach

April 4, 2019 Lisa 0

It doesn’t even begin to feel tropical yet, but not all beaches are warm anyway. In fact, half of my beach experiences have been rather cold and windy (but still fun). Today it was Palm Trees for #ColoursWithinWomen so I turned to the Hangouts stamping plate set by Maniology. Amusingly, Read More

Ghost Crab of the Cosmos - Hermit Werds - deep blue nail art with crab and astrological Cancer symbol and ghostly white paint on top

Ghost Crab of the Cosmos

Well, it was inevitable that I would start combining prompts for #GlamNailsChallenge since my nail art-ing time is getting swallowed up with drawing. But I think this turned out to be a great combination: Ghost and Astrology. I love the little crabs that symbolize Cancer so I used that along Read More

A B C...Zzz - Hermit Werds - nail art with holographic corals, salmon pink, and the start of the alphabet until kitty gets tired. Zzzz...

A B C…Zzz

March 14, 2019 Lisa 0

I’d drawn up this design to use the ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ that one of my stamping plates had. I figured I’d pull it out if I had to do another Back to School prompt. But then #AZNailArtChallenge restarted with ‘A’ is for Alphabet and, well, I couldn’t not use Read More

Black Cat Talk - Hermit Werds - smoosh marble nail art with purple and mint polishes with black cat stamping on top

Black Cat Talks

March 8, 2019 Lisa 0

Oh boy do those cats talk. Especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. Then they go yodeling around the house as if they are looking for you even though you are where you always are…in bed trying to sleep through their insanity. Now I’m the lucky one because I Read More

Geometric Lion - Hermit Werds - nail art with geometric lion stamping decals on an orange/magenta/red thermal/solar polish with a dark gold accent nail

Geometric Lion

Another day, another manicure posting later at night than I could wish. Well, you’ll see very quickly how many photos I had to edit with this one. Worth it. That’s what I tell myself at night… Anyway, the nail art I piled on top of this lovely polish was inspired Read More

Swan Lake - Hermit Werds - a swan princess and rhinestone nail charm swan on a thermal/solar polish with attendant swans

The Swan Princess

February 26, 2019 Lisa 0

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

Lacy Heart - Hermit Werds - lace stamping in a heart shape over a glittery pink background with red heart sequins on top

Lacy Heart

February 13, 2019 Lisa 0

Somehow I managed to fit in the @one_nail_creativity_club in the middle of all my reviewing. I think it turned out pretty well, though if I could do it again, I’d cobble together two different stamping images and continue the theme of lace hearts up the entire nail. Alas, I am Read More
