Seemingly green St Patrick's Day nail art with clover which has a pink thermal polish secret.

St. Patrick’s Glitter

March 17, 2020 Lisa 1

Okay, let’s face it. If St. Patrick were around he likely would be horrified at the thought of glitter because anyone who works with glitter knows its of the devil. (I love it anyway.) (In controlled situations.) But it made a fun title and anyone who is trying to be Read More

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

Warm rosy-brown nail art with little chibi Japanese girls in kimonos.

Spring’s Frost

March 12, 2020 Lisa 2

I’m back with a new look for #pantone2020summerchallenge and today’s Pantone color is Rose Brown. It is very aptly named. I decided to stick some little chibi girls in kimonos on top because I have an abundance of far eastern-themed stamping plates that I haven’t used yet. So…yeah…expect to see Read More

Pig Farm & Butterflies of the Sun

Pig Farm vs Butterflies – Two Simple Looks

March 8, 2020 Lisa 2

Probably by smell alone most of us would think to pick the butterflies (even though some of them eat poop!), but this is nail art so maybe you’ll like the pig look more. Then again…pigs are both delicious and make great pets, while butterflies can’t really do either of those Read More

Bright green nail art with floral nail stamping in pink and white.

Seasonally Inappropriate Flowers

January 5, 2020 Lisa 1

I am back with another design for #Pantone2019WinterChallenge. If you only read my blog and don’t follow me on Instagram, you’ve missed the last two. But I promise I will write a post about them soon and even throw in a third design. All of them are for Christmas though. Read More

Floral nail art featuring Pantone's Eden and blue floral accent nails with rhinestones.

Flowers of Eden

November 17, 2019 Lisa 0

Today’s nail art is supposed to mainly use Pantone’s lovely forest green shade: Eden. I have had to paint this one three different times. The first color I picked was too dark so I decided to try again. The second one (this one) is too light, but I decided to Read More

April Showers - Hermit Werds - glittery purple and blue rain-themed nail art with baby elephant holding an umbrella stamping decal

April Showers

April 8, 2019 Lisa 0

Rainy day nail art in April is a must if you like to acknowledge the seasons in your designs. In fact, I need to stop waiting for the ground to be dry before mowing my lawn because it hasn’t happened in well over a week. I love the rain, though, Read More

Busy Bees 2.0 - Hermit Werds - pink and green nail art featuring bee and pink cone flower stamping decals

Busy Bees 2.0

December 13, 2018 Lisa 0

I have completely busted off my index finger’s nail so while I’m fixing that (and the broken links, ugh) I have another recreation from 2017’s #NailFails. My biggest crime with this one was using KleanColor’s metallic polish to stamp something detailed. It looks fine until you top coat and then Read More

Snail Garden - Hermit Werds - lovely spring garden snail in autumn colors with a rich purple texture polish

Snail Gardens

September 18, 2018 Lisa 0

Well, I’d hoped to post some nail art inbetween my two #ClaireStelle8Challenge prompts, but it wasn’t to be. Instead, I’m back with my second #clairestelle8sept design: a spring mani in autumn colors (See: Ornate Owl for a fall mani in spring colors). And it’s a garden snail! Base Polishes: L’oreal’s Read More
