Kitties Make the Best Presents - Hermit Werds - kitty presents in red and black

Kitties Make the Best Presents

December 25, 2017 Lisa 0

Kitties really do make the best presents. Unless we’re talking waking up Christmas morning to find out that your cat vomited on the carpet. Hard pass on vomit presents. I decided for the red/black prompt from #firedazedchallenge that I wanted to cover presents so I used some cute kitty images Read More

Part of me wanted to go super elaborate for this one, but I made myself take a step back and simplify because I did not have the time. So I went with lots of pink with silver snowflakes and red stamping for my decals. Given the theme, I picked images Read More

I really love the style of the images on Born Pretty’s BP-161 stamping plate. They’re almost tribal and yet somehow not. I especially love the ladybug for reasons I can’t fully explain. Partly it is because it looks almost mechanical and that is where the inspiration for this nail art Read More

Baby Trees - Hermit Werds - spooky red forest with babies hanging from trees

#FireDazedOct2017’s Spooky Forest prompt that I am also late for. This has not been a good month for being timely. :p Anyway, I have in my hands the Bundle Monster Happily Never After set and it has the image of a baby in a bird cage. It also has several Read More

Vampy Matte - Hermit Werds - burgundy holographic matte mani with silver nail shield and glossy stamping

Vampy Matte

October 20, 2017 Lisa 3

This is the last prompt from #NailCraziesUnite’s year-long prompt list so I decided to use one of the vampy-est polishes that I own: Cupcake Polish’s “Blood Hound”. But it’s cruel to rob a holographic polish of all of its holo-ness, so I stamped with a little bit of glossy polish Read More

Dragon Quilt - Hermit Werds - a quilt pattern with holographic polishes and eastern dragons

Dragon Quilt and Vampiric Snacking

September 29, 2017 Lisa 0

Through lots and lots of swatches, stamping, and trimming, we have achieved a dragon quilt which covers both the #AZNailArtChallenge (quilt), the last prompt from #FireDazedChallengeSept (dragon), and #26GreatNailArtIdeas (Your Signature Style). What do I consider to be my signature style? Too much of too much. LOL I painted these Read More

Geometric Autumn - Hermit Werds - geometric autumn patterns on chameleon holo powder

Geometric Autumn

September 15, 2017 Lisa 2

Well, I finally dug out my Born Pretty Chameleon Holo Flakes Powder pot and some no-light gels and top coat to see if I could make it work. Results were patchy and I really, really hate the black. It’s gotten very goopy very quickly and takes three coats for full Read More

Beware the Fist - Hermit Werds - comic book style suited man running forward like Superman

Beware the Fist!

September 9, 2017 Lisa 2

Hehehe I know the guy with his hand up is probably reaching for his glasses so he can turn into Superman, but he’s also bursting through a wall if you’re familiar with the stamping plate. To be honest, I’ve always had a lot of sympathy for the property owners when Read More

Rainbow Nature - Red - Hermit Werds - red willow tree with blossoms

Rainbow Nature – Red

September 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I’ve got a little girl begging to play with me so I’m going to write this quick. I change my mind and I’m going to be doing the 31 Day Challenge this year. I also decided to make a kind of set of the first six prompts that I’m calling Read More

Primary Tribal Print - Hermit Werds - nail art with red gradient background and metallic aqua tribal stamping

Primary Tribal Print

July 23, 2017 Lisa 2

Color Scheme prompt from #whencolourscollide Facebook group: Red and Blue (only). Stamping prompt from #clairestelle8challenge: Aztec/tribal print. I always feel a little uncomfortable trying to do a culture-based style when I don’t know much about it. And I’m not going to spend a lot of time researching things that aren’t Read More
