We Beet Again

November 29, 2018 Lisa 0

Where did the month go? LOL Between holiday plans, a small cold, and the name servers losing my site for a few days I’ve ghosted through most of November. The Pokedex challenge fell to the wayside along with all the other challenges. My hope that I’d manage four freehand looks Read More

The Graveminder - Hermit Werds - salmon pink and teal nail art of a graveyard with a reaper attendant and zombies lurching in the background

The Graveminder

October 26, 2018 Lisa 0

Previously I said I had two color-combo goals for October. One was gold and the other is today’s salmon and teal graveyard design complete with reaper (graveminder) and zombies lurching in the distance. Don’t worry. I’m sure all they want is a hug. LOL I’ve been wanting to work on Read More

Glam-kin - Hermit Werds - nail art of a white pumpkin stamping tinted a little bit pink on a glitzy golden background

Glam-kin

October 14, 2018 Lisa 0

I can’t remember what year it was, but suddenly there were fancy white, pink, and gold pumpkins in the craft stores. People had gotten tired of the typical Halloween colors and that subset bought up this cool, glamorous Halloween look. Also, I’m pretty sure there was a lot of glitter Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – BBB-001 stamping plate

October 11, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] This is it! My final Beauty BigBang review for the month. Today we’re looking at BBB-001, a circle plate with four full-nail images and four smaller images. They’re all quite fun, but since I was going to create a full look with them, I decided to stick to Read More

The wonderful Iva (@lunaaaaaatica) organized a group of ladies to celebrate Elise’s (@Osmovaraa) birthday! Elise and I have been friends for over a year now and I especially know this because Iva organized us for a last year’s birthday collab. This year we had more direction and we were supposed Read More

Beauty BigBang Review – XL-019 stamping plate

October 8, 2018 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today I have a new favorite nail art to share with you using Beauty BigBang’s XL-019 stamping plate. I’ve always been a fan of baby boomer french tips, but this time I added a glitter topper on top with some witches and spiders and, oh, my… Somehow I’ve Read More

DC Heros - Aquaman - Hermit Werds - green, scale-y, and trident-y nail art for DC's Aquaman with holographic glitter on top.

DC Heroes – Aquaman

August 30, 2018 Lisa 0

I just finished watching Justice League and–having watched Batman vs Superman previously–it was a little weird that Batman became the comic relief when Flash was also the comic relief and Affleck’s Batman was super dark originally. I wish they’d be more consistent with their character development. I did enjoy the Read More

Women's Equality Day - Hermit Werds - pink nail art with stamped messages women often hear that hold them back

Women’s Equality Day

August 26, 2018 Lisa 2

I’d say Happy Women’s Equality Day, but, while the 19th amendment has given women the right to vote (and we apparently exercise it more than men), we are still missing a law explicitly prohibiting gender-based discrimination. Not acceptable. We only need one more state to make the Equal Rights Amendment Read More

The Fanciest Paisley + Welcome to Hell

June 8, 2018 Lisa 0

I usually stick to one nail art:one blog poast, but things are getting backed up so we’re going to have a few two-fer posts in the next week. Today we’re talking about my nail art for #GlamNailsChallenge’s Paisley (The Fanciest Paisley) and #26GreatNailArtIdeas’ Dry or Drag Marble (Welcome to Hell). Read More

Ladybug Aggregation - Hermit Werds - nail art with soft, sweet ladybugs and daisies against a bright yellow background

Ladybug Aggregation

May 9, 2018 Lisa 0

Ladybug aggregation is when ladybugs form large clusters and hibernate together over the winter. Sometimes they try to do this in our buildings and people get really fussed. But as numerous as they seem in such situations, their populations are in decline. You can help by not only stopping people Read More
