Hey everyone! I had an idea for something new I wanted to do with the blog tonight. I know many other blogs probably do this in some form or another but I hadn't really tried it myself. The internet is an indispensable tool for those who love nail art. I think I could safely say there isn't one person who is really into nail art who doesn't owe tons of their inspiration to the internet nail art community and all the lovely people that make it up.
Ideas and inspiration are very fluid - sometimes you directly and purposely take inspiration from a manicure you see and recreate it, sometimes it gives you an idea that branches off into another one, and sometimes you don't even realize how heavily influenced you were by another manicure you saw until you see the original one again later. I've definitely had times (often!) where I thought of an idea for a mani, and then later noticed that it looked a lot like a mani I'd seen online before, but when I was creating it I was totally unaware of that. That's just how inspiration works, and I don't know about you but I love that!
So in the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, I want to start a weekly tradition on my blog of recognizing manicures I have seen and LOVED! The number of nail blogs and Tumblrs I follow is approaching embarrassing proportions, so I have lots of source material.
So without any further ado, let's dive right into this weeks manicure!
The Happy Little Clouds manicure by Nailed It really caught my attention this week. It's a perfect example of how a simple manicure can really have a ton of impact. I love the colours she chose, and how each nail has different coloured clouds and sky. It just really stood out to me and I think if I wore this on my own nails, it would be one of the manicures I wouldn't be able to stop staring at. I adore it!
