I Love Bugs - Hermit Werds

I 💕 Bugs

February 12, 2017 Lisa 2

I think bugs are cute, so I’m a sucker for nail plates that have them. And Harunouta’s L018 plate had some cute ones. I decided to skip the butterfly since you see them everywhere and the flying bug was too cheesy for me so that left only three. I filled Read More

February Sparkles - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

February Sparkles

February 7, 2017 Lisa 2

Glitter or rhinestones would have fit into the theme of ‘Sparkle’ better, but I needed something simple and I had beautiful holo polishes and a new Uber Chic nail plate that needed love. I knew Color Club’s “Cosmic Fate” would stamp well, but I am happy to say that ILNP’s Read More

Black and White Valentine - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Black & White Valentines

February 5, 2017 Lisa 6

I wanted to stick absolutely to a black and white color scheme so the challenge for me was to play with the finish and figure out what stamps I wanted to use. I finally settled for a water marble-y flower with some heart shapes swirled into it and a bunch Read More

Year of the Rooster - Hermit Werds

Year of the Rooster

February 3, 2017 Lisa 2

This actually has the same base colors as Gone Fishing. I decided I was running out of time and since I wanted to use yellow for the year of the rooster, doing one manicure on each hand all worked out. I did a little reading and the lucky colors for Read More

Gone Fishing - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Gone Fishing

February 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I wore the gradient on my nails for two days because I was too tired to finish this manicure. Pretty pitiful considering how simple this is. It’s nail art that I wanted to do the minute I got my Harunouta plate with the fish images. The way they are clumped Read More

Mermaid's Treasure - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds - a bling mermaid mani with pearls and caviar beads.

Mermaid’s Treasure

January 27, 2017 Lisa 6

When I first bought the nail plate I used (WP-30), I had already half-planned out an entire manicure just with it. I loved the scale pattern on the mermaid’s tail most of all (and totally plan on using it in future manicures when I need an organic-looking scale pattern). Combined Read More

Red and Pink - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

Red and Pink

January 22, 2017 Lisa 6

It’s very close to Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to stay as far away from that theme as possible (not a big fan of the holiday). Then I saw Midnight Stamper’s “Calm” post for a challenge group I had never heard of before and used the group’s over-arching theme (use Read More

The Hedgehog's Fairy Tale - Hermit Werds

The Hedgehog’s Fairy Tale

January 19, 2017 Lisa 2

One of my friends has a hedgehog and he brought her in to work (that’s actually a picture of her below). She was adorable. During our regular morning meeting, she ran around the table from person to person and gave hedgehog love (because he wouldn’t let her disappear up his Read More

New Year, New You - 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Hermit Werds

New Year, New You

January 9, 2017 Lisa 0

As weird as it for me to believe, today is the first time I’ve stamped anything onto may nails this year. The most I did earlier was paint ILNP’s “Black Orchid” onto my nails. It was very pretty and I was very busy so it just stayed that way. On Read More

Family Manis - Robots - Hermit Werds

Family Manis

January 5, 2017 Lisa 0

The holidays meant getting together with family and what better thing to do than inflict nail polish fumes on them? My first victim was my sister’s boyfriend’s thumb. I used Essie’s “Bell Bottom Blues” and Sinful Color’s “Casablanca” for the fastest drying time possible. The robots came from Nicole Diary’s Read More
