Medium green nail art full of windy patterns and a bold winter lion slowly turning into a gentle white lamb.

Lion of March

March 13, 2020 Lisa 2

March was supposed to come in like a lion (winter) and out like a lamb (spring). Instead it came in like a lamb and I gratefully hung my wool coat in the closet and swapped to lighter fare. I’m even shedding my cardigan by mid-day! Maybe that’s why it’s taken Read More

Cold, dark nail art with black and grey crellies filled with aqua hex glitter and the frosty white spirit of a deer.

Winter’s Deer

I managed to paint several manis in December that I didn’t have the energy to post. It worked out well because this one fit the prompts for both #NailsWithIgFriends’ Winter Animals (hosted by Tricia @artisanloom.nailz this month) and Catherine’s (@mrscronall) monthly prompt for 2020 #mymonthlynaturalmani’s Snowflakes. Products used Base Polishes: Read More

Santa’s Ski-cation

Today I have some nail art depicting Santa’s last vacation before it’s all about getting ready for Christmas. Hit the slopes while you can, Santa! 😄 Today’s colors were inspired by Pantone’s Sugar Almond for #pantone2019winterchallenge. I did have other colors that might have fit the bill, but these were Read More

Kitty Clause - Hermit Werds - glittery magenta nails with orange french tips edged with a cute toy train and cute cats

Kitty Clause – BBB Review (stamping plates)

February 10, 2019 Lisa 1

[press sample] All aboard the color train! LOL We’re back to reviewing stamping plates today with Beauty BigBang’s XL-030 and XL-033. The former has several cat images (all of which I loved and used immediately) and the later has this amazing full-nail train stamp that I separated to create a Read More

Snowman Wonderland - Hermit Werds - blue thermal snowflake crelly with snowmen stamping decals on top, including a skating snowman

Snowman Wonderland

This design was certainly a trial. I started the month with the illusion that I’d be following the #GlamNailsChallenge prompts. Nope! Okay…I thought I could combine the first two prompts of Snowman and Mittens and then follow the rest normally. I had two snowmen stamping images wearing mittens. Nope! My Read More

Vixen's Tree of Lights - Hermit Werds - nail art featuring reindeer wearing festive Christmas wreathes and a Christmas tree made of string lights on a shimmery purple and blue background

Vixen’s Tree of Lights

Allergies mean that I can’t have a live Christmas tree, but I don’t think I’d want one now anyway. My last mini faux tree was given away two years ago. It’s a lot simpler without them (although I admire my mother-in-law’s year-round tree that she decorates for each season). I Read More

I updated to WordPress 5.0 just now and it broke all of the nail polish and stamping plate links. I am working on fixing them, just be aware they aren’t working right now. Also, the Gutenberg editor is dog barf to write posts with. I’ll give it a little more Read More

Galactic Snowstorm - Hermit Werds - purple, magenta, and blue galaxy nail art with snow flakes, sparkly glitter, and astronaut rabbit, polar bear, and penguin stamping decals

Galactic Snowstorm – featuring Born Pretty Christmas-L005

December 6, 2018 Lisa 0

Someone had a galactic challenge prompt (that I missed) and two other challenges had snowflake prompts (that I’m late for) and the stamping plate I used today had this lovely combination of both. And so I found myself painting classic galaxy nails even though I’ve said several times that I’m Read More

Unicorn of Winter - Hermit Werds - silvery ice unicorn design with golden snowflakes

Unicorn of Winter

January 12, 2018 Lisa 2

Last season I painted a Unicorn of Fall mani with a plump little unicorn full of the harvests of the season. Today I have for you a Unicorn of Winter full of snow, ice, and clear, crisp air. I started with a cool silver base, added some goldeen snowflakes, and Read More

I’ve had these on my nails for three days and I’m only now photographing and posting them. Ah, I’ve gotten so lazy. That’s a lie. Yesterday I rearranged a bunch of things in my workroom because that’s what my heart wanted to do most. I’m really liking the changes. I’m Read More
