A Halloween-esque Christmas mani w/spooky pastel stockings hung up against pine boughs + bone reindeer on a red to clear thermal w/flakies.

It’s Christmas Time

December 23, 2022 Lisa 0

I have been posting a lot and kinda crashed a little, but there’s more Christmas nail art to post so it’s time to dust myself off and share today’s look: a nod to my favorite Christmas movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. I don’t have a Christmas tradition that I perform Read More

Glitzy teal Christmas ornament nail art with Christmas pickles stamped in the background and Santa, reindeer, elf stamping decal ornaments.

I knew that I wanted to paint this ornament nail art the minute I added Maniology’s “Sequins” to my shopping cart. There’s something about alternative holiday color schemes that just feels really special. I love both the white/gold and teal/magenta Christmas looks the best. Today’s look obviously focuses on teal/magenta Read More

A gingerbread nail art with a Christmas tree and gingerbread people, house, and reindeer stickers on a crelly full of golden brown glitter.

Sweet Gingerbread

Today’s look is so simple that I felt a little lost when I was done so quickly. And yet…it totally didn’t go as planned. I found these cute Christmas nail art stickers in 2021, and I was determined to use them this year. There’s more on the sheet than just Read More

An aqua magnetic baby boomer french tip nail design with green to rose gold gradient snowflakes and a cute reindeer stamping decal.

Snow-deer Reindeer

February 2, 2021 Lisa 2

Today’s theme is cute and snowflake-y, but the prompt that inspired this design was #NailsWithIG Friend’s Winter Animal. Now Maniology’s BM-S156 is a stamping plate with nothing but winter animals, so I was definitely using it. And I knooow that Christmas is over, but I could not resist this cute Read More

A super bling Christmas mani starting with a red/green thermal polish, bright green swirls, and dancing reindeer stamping decals.

Reindeer Holiday

December 25, 2020 Lisa 2

It’s Christmas! And I have one last reindeer/Christmas mani to share. It has been a month for reindeer nail art since this is the fourth time they’re showing up. Although if you count how many designs I’ve repainted it’s been all reindeer all the time for me. 😭 I decided Read More

Nail art with blocky sweater pattern stamping on top of a super "tacky" light green to ultramarine green tri-thermal indie polish stuffed with glitter.

Tacky Christmas Sweater

December 23, 2020 Lisa 2

Let’s face it. Very few of the so-called “ugly Christmas sweaters” are actually ugly. Instead, what they are is tacky. And I do looove tacky. Not to the point where I think I can pull it off on a daily basis, but I have a deep admiration for those who Read More

Monochrome red reindeer nail art with deep red polishes and a wintery scene created from layered stamping. Merry Christmas!

Red Reindeer Christmas

December 17, 2020 Lisa 3

I’m back with another monochrome look, this time in red with delicate little reindeer in the woods. Tuesday’s nail art was an easy dream to paint. Today’s layered look was a lesson how much I have yet to master. This is why I have so much admiration for nail artists Read More

Nail art with Christmas imagery: Santa, Christmas tree, and Santa's sleigh taking off in a shower of stars on a light tan flakie-filled base.

Christmas Clichés in Neutrals

December 12, 2020 Lisa 3

Browns are not the first color one things of when Christmas colors come up, but you know I like a challenge, friends. So I combined this personal challenge with #pantone2020winterchallenge to bring you today’s look. #pantone2020winterchallenge Ine had some beautiful colors picked this week, but they weren’t brown! So today Read More

Reindeer Afterparty - Hermit Werds - teal nail art with partying reindeer and fireworks stamped on top

Reindeer Afterparty

January 6, 2019 Lisa 0

Well, I guess I can say definitively now: unless everything is ready and all I have to do is hit “Post”, the blog and social media do not get touched when I’m visiting family. That’s probably for the best, but it’s a little hard when you’re trying not to keep 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

December 22, 2018 Lisa 0

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
