Eye of the (Domesticated) Tiger

January 5, 2018 Lisa 0

I just can’t do enough cat nail art, obviously. The hard part of this mani was settling on which metallic polish colors I wanted to use because I’d always planned on using a bunch and then having black as my one color. It’s not cheating if you were plotting it Read More

Glimmering Trees - Hermit Werds - beautiful Christmas trees stamped against a dark olive jelly background with opalescent glitter.

Glimmering Trees

I started looking at buying from KBShimmer when they collaborated with one of the YouTubers I regularly watch. MissHollyBerries not only did a swatch and review of their Fall Collaboration Collection but had made a contribution of her own with #squadghouls. I knew I was getting it. It is hands-down Read More

Green Giraffe - Hermit Werds - holographic green mani with a giraffe and green giraffe animal print

Green Giraffe

November 10, 2017 Lisa 2

This prompt brought to you by my need to use alliteration. Oh, and the prompt Animal Print in the Wrong Colors for #26GreatNailArtIdeas (and also the Nail Challenge Collaborative’s similar month-long theme), the letter ‘G’, and the color green. Obviously. No, seriously, I was going to do a pink tiger Read More

Squirrel Park - Hermit Werds - a squirrel under the trees on a green background

Squirrel Park

November 8, 2017 Lisa 2

Squirrel! Forever connected with the movie Up! I also have a bizarre story about a squirrel ripping through a hawk’s body like an Alien when it tried to have squirrel lunch living in my head too. That part is a less universally known story and probably shouldn’t have been mentioned Read More

Elegant Peacock - Hermit Werds - blue and green metallic peacock stamping with black

Elegant Peacock and Neutrally Scientific

November 3, 2017 Lisa 2

I do love the coloring of a peacock. If I couldn’t choose rainbow as my favorite color, I’d probably have to pick peacock. It’s a testament to how much nail art I want to do that I have only labeled one other nail art as peacock, but it’s still a Read More

Classically Halloween and The Changing Leaves

October 31, 2017 Lisa 2

I have two manicures to share with you today and there will be another post tonight. To start, I thought it would be nice to paint my poor cindy hand again. It still weirds me out that my nails are so short and I haven’t been taking care of them Read More

Lava 300 - Hermit Werds - lava nails spell 300 to thank my 300 followers on Instagram

Lava 300

September 30, 2017 Lisa 0

I admired @p_inklilynails’ lava tutorial from the moment I saw it and told her I wanted to try it sometime. So what better time than for #31DC2017’s Tutorial prompt? I had a lot of fun and I tried to emulate the steps of her tutorial in my final graphic. Also, Read More

Star Wars - Hermit Werds - simple nail art featuring Star Wars' dark side

Star Wars and Gardening Book

I not only went to a convention last weekend, but I’ve just been extra exhausted lately. I lost my lead on the #31DC2017 and then I fell behind. So now I’m scrambling to catch up even though my energy levels still aren’t very high. I changed the nail art I Read More

Church of the Transient Butterfly - Hermit Werds - stained glass windows with a butterfly in the center

The Church of the Transient Butterfly

September 9, 2017 Lisa 6

Rumors that the Church of the Transient Butterfly was started by the Stained Glass Worker’s Guild have always been denied as the darkest kind of blasphemy by all members. “The Transient Butterfly teaches us that life is short and yet beautiful.” says the current head priest and president of the Read More
