Drink-cation - Hermit Werds - #26greatnailartideas (Going on Holiday)

Drink-cation

June 23, 2017 Lisa 2

The theme for this 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was Going on Holiday. Since I just went on holiday to Mexico at an all inclusive resort, my first thought was alcohol. I almost did an entire manicure of just different forms of booze, but then I thought I’d add the Read More

Return to the Yellow Sea

May 14, 2017 Lisa 2

I’ve previously completed oceanic nail art with a yellow theme and I ended up doing it again this time. 26 Great Nail Art‘s challenge for this week is yellow and one bold color. This is my second attempt at it because the first one ended up looking all green with Read More

Tourist Season - Hermit Werds

Tourist Season and blog improvements

February 26, 2017 Lisa 4

This was for the 30 Days of Colour Challenge: Bright. Naturally I tapped into my Sinful Color’s Neon Collection nail polishes, but since I didn’t paint my nails white first they are not quite as bright as they could have been. Considering how hard of a time my phone camera Read More

Gone Fishing - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds

Gone Fishing

February 2, 2017 Lisa 4

I wore the gradient on my nails for two days because I was too tired to finish this manicure. Pretty pitiful considering how simple this is. It’s nail art that I wanted to do the minute I got my Harunouta plate with the fish images. The way they are clumped Read More

Mermaid's Treasure - 30 Days of Color - Hermit Werds - a bling mermaid mani with pearls and caviar beads.

Mermaid’s Treasure

January 27, 2017 Lisa 6

When I first bought the nail plate I used (WP-30), I had already half-planned out an entire manicure just with it. I loved the scale pattern on the mermaid’s tail most of all (and totally plan on using it in future manicures when I need an organic-looking scale pattern). Combined Read More

W is for Whale - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘W’ is for Whale

November 18, 2016 Lisa 0

I’d wanted to do a Wonder Woman manicure, but I was just too tired and stressed to want to muck about with that much striping tape. So I went back to my list of alternatives for ‘W’ and decided to do whales. Because whales are love and there is not Read More

Geometric Kiwi Bird - 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

Geometric Kiwi

October 13, 2016 Lisa 0

I’ve had this particular manicure planned for a while. Pretty much ever since I purchased the KD-SM612-002 plate from ebay. They are acrylic so I was pretty hesitant to buy them at first. I started with buying the plate I used today because I was quite enamored of that little Read More

Yellow - 31 Day Challenge - Hermit Werds

Yellow

September 18, 2016 Lisa 0

I’ve wanted to do a yellow submarine manicure for a while. Uber Chic’s nail plate and this nail challenge offered the perfect opportunity. I focused on a few jelly nail sandwiches with white stamping and a tiny bit of yellow gradient and a few solid yellow nails with obviously white Read More

K is for Koi - ABC Nail Art Challenge - Hermit Werds

‘K’ is for Koi

July 20, 2016 Lisa 2

I’ve been waiting to do this manicure until we got to the letter ‘K’, but it has been eating at me extra ever since my Bundle Monster Secret Garden Collection BM-725 nail plate arrived. The stamping plate is a mixture of five different flower-patterned fish and water lilies. I had Read More
