Back To Fashion For Inspiration...Where's My Muse?
It's been a super busy summer for me. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to sit down and prepare a post just to find out (at the last minute) that my oldest has a basketball game/practice , or my youngest needs a ride across town to hang out with his friends. And when I finally get settled in to do a manicure, I run into painters block. Color minus the creativity. Let's face it, that's probably not what you're here to see. I can't even decide on a simple stamp to use. I've got nothing ladies. I'm drawing a blank here. Zero, nada, nani mo, nichego, niente, rien. Or in the words of my childhood friends, not a doggone thing. So what do you do when your brain and all your creative energies have gone on vacation? I pull inspiration from any place I can, that's what I do. After a recent shopping trip (much needed retail therapy), I used colors from a new outfit for my muse. Peach is a popular color this year, so I pulled out a peachy polish, a coordinating plum and a splash of gold. The design didn't come out quite like I planned, so I threw on a clear holographic topcoat because nothing solves a problem like holo or glitter (or both in this case). And voila! A light, summery peachy mani.
Either I keep shopping for clothes and bust my budget, or I do what I did last year and flip through magazines and surf the net for drool-worthy furniture and room decor that I can't afford. Now that's inspiration! So you might be in store for a few upholstery recreations. Odd, I know. But it works. Go with it.
Help me out. Tell me what you want to see. Drop me a comment below. Until next time,
Ciao for now!
