Black Cat Talk - Hermit Werds - smoosh marble nail art with purple and mint polishes with black cat stamping on top

Black Cat Talks

March 8, 2019 Lisa 0

Oh boy do those cats talk. Especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. Then they go yodeling around the house as if they are looking for you even though you are where you always are…in bed trying to sleep through their insanity. Now I’m the lucky one because I Read More

Seattle Tribute - Hermit Werds - nail art for Seattle with a cityscape and the Space Needle bracketed with a smoosh marble in emerald green and purples.

Seattle Tribute

March 1, 2019 Lisa 0

I don’t think it’s fair for me to say a city is my favorite if I have never been to it; so I confess that rather limited my choices of city for #NailsWithIgFriends’ Favorite City prompt. I just haven’t traveled that much. But I have been to Seattle and shoveled Read More

Love is Love - Hermit Werds - soft pastel LGBTQ positive graffiti nail art

Love is Love

June 22, 2018 Lisa 0

It’s Pride Month and I’ve been itching to paint some LGBTQ positive nail art since it started, but the challenges I was following really didn’t fit with that until now. #26GreatNailArtIdeas‘ prompt of graffiti fits well with a rainbow theme so I grabbed Born Pretty Valentine’s Day BP-L005 and got Read More

Marble Unicorn

Earlier today I had a real water marble on my nails and…it bored me. I mean, I did sit there for a while being proud that I had actually managed a standard water marble pattern. Self back pats. Yessss. But I kept it simple and plain and those kinds of Read More

Lovingly Lilac - Hermit Werds - a pink and lilac smoosh marble with a white heart design stamped on top

Lovingly Lilac

February 14, 2018 Lisa 0

This as my first attempt at a base for my recreation of Becky (@nail.dazed)’s nail art for her birthday. The theme was dark blue/purple/red and recreating. The mani I was recreating had a light background so I thought I would do that and make my decals really dark and that 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

In a Garden, Darkly

January 11, 2018 Lisa 0

I have been part of the nail artist community on Instagram for about a year now and I recently found out one of the ways I’ve left myself out of the loop. Stories are apparently being used to announce that someone is putting a birthday collage together. Then anyone who Read More

The Parasol Collector - Hermit Werds - a series of parasol decals and a victorian lady on a blue and green smoosh marble

The Parasol Collector

November 15, 2017 Lisa 0

This was a combination of prompts: #WhenColoursCollide’s Blue and Green only, #GlamNailsChallenge’s Umbrella, and #GgfNaChallenge’s Steampunk. I haven’t really be following #Ggf, but steampunk! I am not sure I really covered that even though I did use parasols instead of umbrellas and a Victorian lady (whom I have used before). Read More

Cat Memories - Hermit Werds - black kitty against an orange smoosh marble

Cat Memories

September 23, 2017 Lisa 2

Last Wednesday, my cat swarmed up over the fence after another cat and went missing for several days. I spent a lot of time knocking on doors, hanging up signs, and wandering around the neighborhood at 2 AM in the morning. After five days of wondering she finally showed up Read More

Art Deco Fashion

June 17, 2017 Lisa 2

The subject for this #clairestelle8june challenge is fashion. I had these fantastic paisley water decals and I came very close to using them with some stamping on top. However. Behind the scenes I am doing a lot of nail art in a few days to catch up to all the Read More
