Year of the Dog

I never did get around to painting some nail art for the Year of the Dog, so, while many different ideas popped up for #clairestelle8’s Far East prompt, I decided to go with the one that I’d be really sad to miss if I didn’t get it in this year. Read More

Sometimes you just get a funny idea in your head and you have to do it. I had a stamping plate with these weird suited bunnies and they gave me a brain worm that I just couldn’t shake. I had to riff off of Men in Black with them. I’m Read More

It’s time for ice cream nail art! So I finally dug out my Turtle Tootsie ice cream polishes and used them for an ice cream mani. I’m actually pretty pleased that I used them all for something else first because it shows I was right to pick them. Versatile, that’s Read More

Mother's Eggs - Hermit Werds - nail art celebrating the cycle of eating eggs with hen, sunny side up egg and an empty plate.

I’ve said before that eggs are one of my favorite foods. Today I have another silly mani to celebrate that delicious food. I’d originally planned to post this on Mother’s Day since hens are moms, but I ended up being too busy hanging out with my own mother the day Read More

I love playing with transparency and depth and this jelly polish by Ms. Sparkle with all its delightful glitters was a delight to work with. I was so sad when this design chipped off my nails before I could throw some gel top coat on top. Must remember to time Read More

Iced Coffee - Hermit Werds - coral and white gold nail art with iced coffee stamping

Iced Coffee

I both love how this design came together and feel oddly meh about it at the same time. The amusing reason is that #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt for this week is Least Favorite Color. This is extremely difficult for me because my favorite color is rainbow. I’ve been saying it’s rainbow for Read More

On Violet Waters - Hermit Werds - nail art of origami water birds on a white geometric background with a soft pink to white gradient

On Violet Waters

Really, I almost titled this “On Violent Waters” to see if people would notice the ‘n’ and put a shark on my thumb. Look out, birds! Anyway, this was for #WhenColoursCollide’s pink/purple/white theme and ended up being for #NailArtChallengeCollaborative’s Geometric theme as well. That worked out well. Really I just Read More

Black Sheep, Green Meadow - Hermit Werds - green nail art with a black sheep stamped on top

Black Sheep, Green Meadows

Just a quick, simple nail art today. Sometimes I complicate things too much and end up staring off into the distance because it’s too much work and I don’t wanna get started. Plus the first version of my other nail art didn’t turn out the way I wanted so I Read More

Godzilla - Hermit Werds - freehand nail art featuring everyone's favorite Kaijū, Godzilla, attacking Tokyo (glows in the dark)

Godzilla

When #GlamNailsChallengeJune said “city”, I thought “giant Kaijū destroying the city” because I’ve been wanting to paint that sort of thing for a while. It was just too tempting since I have glow in the dark powders to use. I also felt like I could count this as an Inspired Read More

Daughter of a Burning City - Hermit Werds - chameleon flakies on a dark purple background with a circus/freak show theme

Today I have for you a nail art brought to you by the prompts from #GlamNailsChallenge (Travel) and #NailChallengeCollaborative (Inspired by a Book). I decided to go with a circus theme and based my design around a book I read a few months ago called Daughter of the Burning City Read More
