Japan's Flag - Hermit Werds

Japan’s Flag

October 27, 2016 Lisa 0

Halloween is too close and instead of finishing the manicure for Inspired by Artwork and not getting to enjoy it long enough, I’ve decided to skip it for now and do a quick manicure for Inspired by a Flag. I kept it simple with a white background for all and Read More

Steampunk Fashion - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Steampunk Fashion

October 24, 2016 Lisa 0

I usually plan these challenges out way ahead of time so ideas for my subject can percolate in the back of my brain for a while, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the topic of fashion. Initially I was going to keep it simple with Read More

Dracula - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (book) - Hermit Werds

Dracula

October 23, 2016 Lisa 0

Choosing “Dracula” for my book was definitely low-hanging fruit. Now I kinda wish I’d picked Twilight and abused glitter. Oh, wait. I abused glitter anyway! I’ve really been loving Sinful Color’s Luxe Fragments line. I even have a few more manicures planned using them. The jelly and glitter fragment combo Read More

Beetlejuice - 31 Day Challenge (movie) - Hermit Werds

BeetleJuice

October 22, 2016 Lisa 0

I remember when Beetlejuice came out. It was a pretty fun movie, but not a favorite of mine. I did, however, watch the cartoon quite faithfully (though I cannot really remember any particular episode to this day, just the sandworms). And then I heard this year that Tim Burton wouldn’t Read More

Nightmare Before Christmas - 31 Day Challenge (song) - Hermit Werds

Nightmare Before Christmas

October 21, 2016 Lisa 0

So I’ve been trying to pick subjects that also fit in with Halloween and since Beetlejuice isn’t really known for a particular song, I opted for “Nightmare Before Christmas” as my song. That movie has sooo many good songs. I, however, was also limited by my lazy and the stamping Read More

T is for TIme - ABC Nail Art Challenge - 31 Day Challenge (color) - Hermit Werds

‘T’ is for Time

October 20, 2016 Lisa 4

I’ve been sick for the last couple of days and on top of being a tired of the pace I was keeping up (I don’t know how the other bloggers who have managed this for several years in a row don’t burn out), I neglected my blog for a bit Read More

Galaxy - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Galaxy

October 16, 2016 Lisa 0

I have done proper galaxy nails before with all their beautiful gradients and so on. I had a cool idea for this manicure that also would have been different from standard, but I’m already not getting enough sleep as it is. So I decided to save it for later when Read More

Half Moon - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Half Moons

October 15, 2016 Lisa 0

Half moon manicures are just not something I do very often. And I will get bored of my nails before they grow out so I don’t benefit from that particular advantage either. I have seen some amazing manicures with them, but for the most part they don’t do anything for Read More

Glitter Skeletons - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Glitter Skeletons

October 14, 2016 Lisa 0

Red glitter is delicious low-hanging visual fruit. Especially for Halloween. My new Halloween nail plates had arrived so I had my choice in what images to throw on top of it. The expressions on the faces of the skulls on DXE18 were adorable, so I chose to feature one of Read More

Geometric Kiwi Bird - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Geometric Kiwi

October 13, 2016 Lisa 0

I’ve had this particular manicure planned for a while. Pretty much ever since I purchased the KD-SM612-002 plate from ebay. They are acrylic so I was pretty hesitant to buy them at first. I started with buying the plate I used today because I was quite enamored of that little Read More
