Monday Recommends and Nail Art: Southern Cats and Valentines

I stumbled across 3 Southern Cats and Momma (although there are now 4 cats) on Instagram, and I had to look them up on YouTube. They consistently crack me up: The Sass Mouth, Alcoholic, Catnip Dealer, and Pentecostal Kitties.

Here’s one of their YouTube videos. It’s about four minutes long, and worth every second.

You’d think I would do cat nails this week, but no. I did early Valentine nails because I wanted to.

I only used three polishes and two plates this week: The red base color and stamping is essie’s Forever Yummy; the off-white is Maniology’s Coconut, and the sparkley topper is Sally Hansen’s Mega Strength Lady Millionaire. The cupid and heart came from BeautyBigBang Silhouette-XL-001, and the hearts and stripes came from Maniology’s Classic Beauty BM-XL355.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Cats and an early valentine.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      You’re welcome! I just read your blog interview with Damyanti Biswas. I felt like I was sitting at the bar with all of you.

      I’m not sure if exorcism works unless you have the holy paws.

      Glad you liked the nails, but it’s fairly easy with nail stamping. Often frustrating, but fun.

        I’ll stick with painting my toes in the summer. Fingernail polish is a losing effort with me – I’m too hard on my hands, so it never lasts beyond a day or two.

          You have to put on a sticky base coat and then a top coat over the polish. Sara’s lasts at least a week, even when she’s doing field work.
