I've been searching through fabric swatches lately, and now they're stuck in my head. When I sit down to work on a manicure all I see is fabric swatches floating in my head. Florals, stripes, abstracts, you name it, they're up there floating around. It's the change in seasons, I think. Cooler weather brings visions of curling up by a fire with a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows and whipped cream on top. I envision myself in front of that fire sitting on a fluffy, comfy chair with a book in my hand and Coco Kitty in my lap. But the chair in my vision isn't quite right. Actually, the whole room isn't right. So now I want to look at furniture, fabrics and anything related to interior design to create, in my head, a beautiful environment that I'll never actually live in. In other words, I flip through magazines and dream. I'll go through this phase for a short while, then move on to something else. Until then, you just have to bare with me.
This manicure was inspired by a yellow and purple country French upholstered chair with a toile print fabric. The chair may not be your taste, but the design and fabric coordination is very well done. I could decorate a room around this piece. Since I don't have the time or money to take up that endeavor, I can at least apply the concept to my nails.
Ciao for now.
