Soft pink and grey nail art with handsome tiger suitor and heart pattern.

No Lion Hearts

February 19, 2020 Lisa 2

Today’s nail art was inspired by a song, but not a new one. Girl’s Generation (or SNSD) hasn’t put out a new song since 2017 and the song I thought of immediately when I saw the tiger image on Nicole Diary’s Fashion Trends ND-002 is from their 2015 album Lion Read More

Orange Tiger

It’s terribly convenient when the name of a color can be used both as the title of the nail art inspired by it and the subject. Today I have my Orange Tiger mani for #pantone2019winterchallenge run by the lovely Ine (@inegeek) and it’s not getting posted on the last possible Read More

Purple, pink, and blue smoosh marble nail art with fabulously hat-ed witch and black cat familiar.

Witch’s Familiar

October 21, 2019 Lisa 0

This was a nail art that just kept getting away from me. I knew a smoosh marble was going to happen, but I didn’t have a color scheme plan for my accent nails. The cat had to be black because that’s @clairestelle8challenge’s prompt but the colors I used in my Read More

Purple/pink magnetic polish with golden space cats stamped on top.

Cats Conquer Space – BP Review (stamping polish and plate)

September 25, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today I’m reviewing two items from Born Pretty: a golden stamping polish called “In Fire” and a their space-themed Outer Space-L001 stamping plate. For my design I tried to cover all three uses of the polish: base, stamping, and filling in the stamping. The cat on my middle Read More

Minimalist Meow

Ages ago I had white gel polish on my nails and I decided to paint this design real quick and save it for a rainy day. I’d seen several images like this on t-shirts and bags and anything with four letters goes well on the nails. This was inevitable! I’m Read More

A B C...Zzz - Hermit Werds - nail art with holographic corals, salmon pink, and the start of the alphabet until kitty gets tired. Zzzz...

A B C…Zzz

March 14, 2019 Lisa 0

I’d drawn up this design to use the ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ that one of my stamping plates had. I figured I’d pull it out if I had to do another Back to School prompt. But then #AZNailArtChallenge restarted with ‘A’ is for Alphabet and, well, I couldn’t not use Read More

Black Cat Talk - Hermit Werds - smoosh marble nail art with purple and mint polishes with black cat stamping on top

Black Cat Talks

March 8, 2019 Lisa 0

Oh boy do those cats talk. Especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. Then they go yodeling around the house as if they are looking for you even though you are where you always are…in bed trying to sleep through their insanity. Now I’m the lucky one because I Read More

Geometric Lion - Hermit Werds - nail art with geometric lion stamping decals on an orange/magenta/red thermal/solar polish with a dark gold accent nail

Another day, another manicure posting later at night than I could wish. Well, you’ll see very quickly how many photos I had to edit with this one. Worth it. That’s what I tell myself at night… Anyway, the nail art I piled on top of this lovely polish was inspired Read More

Bead Pig - Hermit Werds - seed bead pig made by Lisa @HermitWerds following Marilyne Kéréneur's pattern

Misc Mammal Beaded Animals

It’s been a while since I last posted about the bead animals from the old art gallery that used to live at this domain. Today I’m covering the cute little mammals and, of course, I’m featuring the pig since we are now in the Year of the Pig. That snout Read More
