Eye of the (Domesticated) Tiger

January 5, 2018 Lisa 0

I just can’t do enough cat nail art, obviously. The hard part of this mani was settling on which metallic polish colors I wanted to use because I’d always planned on using a bunch and then having black as my one color. It’s not cheating if you were plotting it Read More

Kitties Make the Best Presents - Hermit Werds - kitty presents in red and black

Kitties Make the Best Presents

December 25, 2017 Lisa 0

Kitties really do make the best presents. Unless we’re talking waking up Christmas morning to find out that your cat vomited on the carpet. Hard pass on vomit presents. I decided for the red/black prompt from #firedazedchallenge that I wanted to cover presents so I used some cute kitty images Read More

Black Cat V 2.0 and Pink Villainy

October 27, 2017 Lisa 1

This black cat nail art is for #26GreatNailArtIdeas Halloween w/Negative Space. I was going to do something more complex, but then I asked myself, “Why am I making my life hard right now?” And the answer is that sometimes I think if I don’t struggle I’m not doing a good Read More

Animal Abuse Awareness

October 18, 2017 Lisa 0

I decided to combine #WhenColoursCollide’s prompt of Holographic and Black Water Marble with #nailaddictscollab’s Claws for a Cause where you could paint your nails with whatever cause was close to your heart. So naturally I picked animals because people are both amazingly good and brave and barely worth the air Read More

Happy Birthday! - Hermit Werds - Halloween-themed happy birthday nail art

October’s Friday the 13th, Black Cat, @Osmovaara

October 13, 2017 Lisa 6

I have three different manicures to share today. I’ve already posted the first two to my Instagram but was too exhausted/busy to write about them more thoroughly. On the other hand, I de-stashed around twenty-five skirts from my closet. It…doesn’t even look like I made a dent. Clearly I’m going Read More

Cat Memories

September 23, 2017 Lisa 2

Last Wednesday, my cat swarmed up over the fence after another cat and went missing for several days. I spent a lot of time knocking on doors, hanging up signs, and wandering around the neighborhood at 2 AM in the morning. After five days of wondering she finally showed up Read More

Can’t Hug Every Cat

September 22, 2017 Lisa 4

I was going to do a different song for #31DC2017 Inspired by a Song, but with my cat’s brief disappearance this month, I am a little obsessed with cats right now. Plus, I’ve loved this song ever since one of my co-workers added it to our group playlist. Can’t Hug Read More

This ended up being a perfect storm. It started when I decided I wanted to do the monthly prompt for #NailAddictsCollab of New Skills. If you’ve been following along, you’ll notice that I have done quite a number of things for the first time lately (buffing holographic powder into gel Read More

Eternal Hobbies - Hermit Werds - #clairestelle8june (hobbies)

Eternal Hobbies (kitties!)

June 27, 2017 Lisa 4

So the second prompt of the month for #clairestelle8june is your job/hobby. Job was possible but obnoxious to nail art so I went with hobby. There are three hobbies that I have been listing out to people for most of my life: sleep, kitties, and reading. “Kitties” usually makes me Read More
