P is for Pair - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘P’ is for Pair

August 19, 2016 Lisa 4

I threw around a lot of ideas for the letter ‘p’, everything from penguins to pencils. In the end, I went with word play and decided to do pairs of things starting with ‘p’ with the exception of a single pear. This one took a while. I had a lot Read More

Zagging Summer

My new Ejibaus plate arrived so I really wanted to play with it. I grabbed colors that looked pretty summer-y and started splashing them around. As fun and glittery as it was, this just wasn’t a favorite. None of the patterns really felt like they meshed. I feel like I Read More

‘G’ is for Grain

This marks the first back-post of the ABC Challenge. I have been following it since it started, but was too lazy to get a blog started when it meant work and getting my sadly broken computer functioning again so I could edit the photos. I’ve decided to go in reverse Read More

‘N’ is for Neko

August 9, 2016 Lisa 4

Most of the people who know me would be surprised to know that I skipped on ‘C’ is for Cat or ‘K’ is for Kitty. I mean, the banner on this blog right now is a picture of my personal demon, Midnight, and I make no secret of being a Read More

M is for My Little Pony - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘M’ is for My Little Pony

July 30, 2016 Lisa 1

This week’s letter is ‘M’ and I had planned on a My Little Pony nail art despite the massive struggle I had when we were on ‘E’ and I chose Equestria Girls. I’d like to say it was in celebration of season 6 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Read More

‘L’ is for Lemons and Limes

July 25, 2016 Lisa 2

I’ve been wanting to experiment with transparency with a citrus-y manicure and so the letter ‘L’ in last week’s ABC Challenge was a perfect time to play with some lemons and limes. Here’s a quick look at the nail polishes I used to create the look. Jelly Polishes: Sinful Colors’ Read More

‘K’ is for Koi

July 20, 2016 Lisa 2

I’ve been waiting to do this manicure until we got to the letter ‘K’, but it has been eating at me extra ever since my Bundle Monster Secret Garden Collection BM-725 nail plate arrived. The stamping plate is a mixture of five different flower-patterned fish and water lilies. I had Read More

‘J’ is for Jackalope

Last week’s ABC nail art challenge was ‘J’. I’d originally intended to do Joker, but when the time came to paint my nails, I wanted something cuter. And what’s cuter than a rabbit with antlers? Especially after I’d recently read an article about how the whole myth may have come Read More

I is for Icing - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘I’ is for Icing

July 7, 2016 Lisa 1

Cake is a vector for icing. The ABC nail art challenge has reached the letter ‘I’ and I picked icing. I started with a base of Sinful Colors’ “Konstellation” from the Kylie Jenner Trend Matters (2016). The reviews I saw from others described it as an oil slick on your Read More

Peaches and Green

July 5, 2016 Lisa 0

Well, I’m trying to get back to doing two manicures a week (one elaborate and one more simple). Moving threw things off quite a bit and mostly I end up doing the elaborate one because I don’t have the energy or time to do another one. Plus, y’know, the manicure Read More
