Talk Like a Pirate Day nail art with cute pirate stamping images (captain, ship, parrot) on a teal to purple multichrome polish.

Ship Ahoy!

September 19, 2022 Lisa 2

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Or at least the barest edge of the end of it depending on your time zone. I’ve been keeping busy with IRL things like finishing painting the deck with my husband. It rained a few days ago and the water beading up it made Read More

Shark nail art with cute sharks who have taken bites out of hearts as stamping decals on a glitzy blue base polish.

Shark Love

I am definitely the part of the population that loves Shark Week because I love sharks. Who wouldn’t love an animal that bites things because one of its major environmental inputs is its mouth. When can I get that excuse? But Shark Week is in July and I totally missed Read More

A pale mint green treasure map nail art with reverse stamped islands, monsters, and ships and the final palm tree with 'x' marks the spot.

Possibly today’s nail art look will make up for missing Talk Like a Pirate Day last year. It’s always a little frustrating when I miss a holiday that I want to cover, but selling my home so we could move took precedence. This year, though, you should be able to Read More

Nautical nail art in pink, black, and silver with lots of anchor stamping decals and a kiss of holographic nail polish.

Anchors Away

July 5, 2021 Lisa 2

Todays look is brought to you by prompts and whatever I have in my collection that fit them. 😆 My colors were pink, black, and silver from @WhenColoursCollide and my subject was Anchors from @GlamNailsChallenge. So that made this a nautical nail art from the start. When Colours Collide There Read More

A pink glow in the dark crelly with Disney villain Ursula nail art complete with tentacles, shell necklace, and her attack on Eric's ship.

Disney Villain: Ursula

June 3, 2021 Lisa 2

So the @HalloweenForeverCollab picked Disney (or other animated shows) villains in neons or glow in the dark and, well, how does one pick a single villain out of so many wonderful prospects? Easy. You just go straight for Ursula and can’t convince yourself to paint anything else. (Admittedly I already Read More

Sunset Pirates

September 19, 2020 Lisa 2

Well, that last post took a bit to prepare. Nothing like setting myself an easy first post to get back into the swing of things. 😅 And now it’s time for some pirate nail art since it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! I think today’s design is pretty much the Read More

This is my first time participating in #manicollabs on Instagram. The prompt was Inspired by a Country You Would Like to Visit and I asked if it had to be a real country. They said ‘no’ so then I spent time thinking about a recognizable and cool land I would Read More

Pirate Booty - Hermit Werds - navy pirate-themed nails with treasure

Pirate’s Booty

August 11, 2017 Lisa 2

Inspired by the “Show me your booty” quote on UberChic’s Mermaid Life plate. Truthfully, I was tempted to paint an actual booty on my nails, but I had the #NailCraziesUnite prompt of Nautical so I stuck with pirates and used the #NailArtChallengeAugust prompt of Navy to set the color scheme. Read More

Coral Cruising - Hermit Werds - coral, sailor, ocean, tropical nail art

Coral Cruising

July 9, 2017 Lisa 4

The trouble with becoming more familiar with Instagram is that it opens up a whole world of people running nail art challenges. Today I decided to combine a few of them: For the color scheme, #whencolourscollide on Facebook prompted Coral & Gold (only). For the location, #clairestelle8challenge prompted Tropical. For Read More

The Little Mermaid v2 - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8challenge (book/movie)

The Little Mermaid v2

June 29, 2017 Lisa 1

Sometimes it happens. You finish your nail art and after staring at it for a day, the thing that’s missing eats at you until you have to do something about it. And my pinkie and ring finger were too plain. I had to fix it. Luckily there were a few Read More
