Love at First Bite

February 15, 2021 Lisa 1

Today’s look is another design I’ve been wanting to paint for a few years. It’s also one I wanted to post around Valentine’s Day as both an alternate perspective of the day and an anti-Valentine mani. And if you follow me on Instagram, I actually did manage to post it Read More

A dark blue nail art with metallic blue decorative swirls stamped in the background and little white cat silhouette stamping decals.

Cats in Blue and White

February 1, 2021 Lisa 2

I enjoy a color challenge, which is why I follow the pantone challenge so much, but there’s another nail art challenge with color prompts that I used to follow on FB called When Colours Collide. I think the last time I joined in there was August 2018. The major difference Read More

Blue and pink nail art of a gentleman cat dressing up in a bow tie to woo his lady in the city using stamping decals.

Gentleman Cat Woos His Lady

January 21, 2021 Lisa 2

So I bought a circle stamping plate years ago that had an image of this little cat wearing a bow tie. And I always thought he was a bit of a nerd dressing up to impress his (cat) lady friend. (He does. Bow ties are great.) This week I finally Read More

Sugar Skull Cat

December 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’ve been wanting to paint a sugar skull cat and accompanying fish for at least two years. In fact, the false nails I used for this mani have been sporting their black jelly base since 2019’s Day of the Dead. I am good at intimidating myself out of freehand painting. Read More

Inktober 2020 - Week 4. Dizzy is a tea cup ride. Coral is a coral polyp. Sleep is fat cat sleeping on a stack of pillows. Chef is a lobster chef wearing a chef's cap and holding a spoon. R.I.P is a smashed alarm clock, defending rest. Dig is a mole slurping up a worm. Buddy is a fable reference of The Scorpion and The Frog tale.

Inktober 2020 – Week 4

October 26, 2020 Lisa 3

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I can’t believe Week 4 is over! Subject-wise I was all over the place, but I still went with a lot of animals like scorpion and lobster which are both part of the Phylum Read More

Spooky Cats

October 7, 2020 Lisa 3

September’s Mani X Me box had a Pet Cemetery theme so, of course, I could not resist. And once I realized that I could actually put a hold on my subscription and skip the boxes where I wasn’t interested in everything (generally the stamping polishes are colors I already have Read More

Hazel-colored nail art about walk your dog month with cute dog stamping images and paw prints.

Walk Your Dog Month

January 27, 2020 Lisa 0

Did you know that January is Walk Your Dog Month? I did not, but I am also not a dog owner. Instead, I was searching for a reason to use the dog image on Nicole Diary’s Fashion Trends ND-002 stamping plate because my goal is to use every single image 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

May 10, 2019 Lisa 0

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
