Carnival of Brazil – Moyou London’s Tourist 14 Plate

April 23, 2018 Lisa 0

Ah, the Carnival of Brazil. I’ve seen images and videos of Brazil’s annual festival held between the Friday afternoon before Ash Wednesday and Ash Wednesday at noon. It marks the beginning of Lent, the forty-day period before Easter. I love the feathers and the colors and the feathers and the Read More

Love in the Language of Birds

I…wasn’t quite meaning to create such a neon mani, but I was trying to match the colors to my glitter topper and that meant a lot of color because I didn’t want to paint a white base. #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ prompt for this week is Love, but No Pink or Red. I Read More

It’s time for more #26GreatNailArtIdeas and the prompt is Black and Neon. When neon prompts come up, I plan to use at least a few of my Sinful Colors’ collection. Partially it’s because I don’t have much else, but I also just like them. They are the first collection of Read More

Creatures of the Night - Hermit Werds - vampires drinking blood coffee and staying up all the hours of the night

Creatures of the Night

The true creatures of the night are sucking down coffee at all hours and complaining about how all the stores are closed. So when #nailsunited had a Creatures of the Night prompt, I played around with several ideas until I was very late for the prompt and brilliantly stumbled into Read More

I haven’t had a new blog post in two days, but believe me I’ve been keeping busy (or you can check my instagram account if you need proof). I was watching one of Jessface90‘s polish swatching videos and she made a remark about her white gel base starting to peel Read More

Accidental Turtle - Hermit Werds - neon green goodness

Accidental Turtle

This nail art is for the Nail Crazies Unite theme of neon. I meant for it to be green and yellow, but the stamping plates I picked have very shallow etchings and even Mundo de Unas wasn’t opaque enough for the neon yellow to not turn into a bright-est green. Read More

Pink and Silver - Hermit Werds - #whencolourscollide

Pink and Silver

June 25, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this When Colours Collide was Pink and Silver (only). I thought it was a good excuse to do something simple and fun with a stamping plate I hadn’t had a chance to use yet. I pulled out the plate, sketched a layout quickly and threw it all Read More

Nude and Neon - Hermit Werds - When Colours Collide (Nude and Neon)

Nude and Neon

May 14, 2017 Lisa 0

This nail art was for the When Colours Collide challenge group. The limitation to this was that you could only use two neon colors along with your nude color. I decided to go with neon green and neon yellow and that I wanted some negative space too. Then I decided Read More

Tourist Season - Hermit Werds

Tourist Season and blog improvements

February 26, 2017 Lisa 4

This was for the 30 Days of Colour Challenge: Bright. Naturally I tapped into my Sinful Color’s Neon Collection nail polishes, but since I didn’t paint my nails white first they are not quite as bright as they could have been. Considering how hard of a time my phone camera Read More

I apologize for the bite marks. I have a bad habit of not taking my photos early enough and destroying my nail art pretty quickly. This was originally going to be the background for my ‘J’ is for Jackalope nail art. Unfortunately, while I started with a white base to Read More
