Pink and Orange - Ombre Nail Art

Isn't it interesting how inspiration can emanate from a variety of sources? One of the most difficult things a blogger encounters is how to be creative and remain inspired enough to post consistently. LA inspires me in so many ways - the lush vegetation, eclectic architecture, amazing markets and restaurants... But sometimes I find the most inspiration in you, my fellow bloggers! I'm still recovering from back surgery so I spend a lot of time being horizontal and that allows for time spent with you. This morning I decided to see how Paola of The PvdH Journal was doing with her relocation from London to Mexico City when I discovered a very lovely and unusual post on nail art. Unusual for Paola, I mean. I myself have only posted once about nail art when I painted nails inspired by Tony Duquette. Take a peek here. Anyway, Paola inspired me to do a post on a new Essie color I picked up over the weekend. I decided to apply my art degree here and mix it up a little! The result was ombre nails using Essie's "Orange, it's obvious" and Rimmel's "Posh Pink". 

Thank you for being my muse today Paola!

Tell me friends, when inspiration doesn't find you, where do you find it?

Nice colour combo! So...when inspiration doesn't find me I just turn my sketch book upside down and start over!

Oh I love this! I recently did an ombre manicure but I just faded the color from my pinky to thumb. I'll have to try it on each individual finger soon.

Well honey, you should really do nail post more often cause I was already crazy last time when you showed off the "Tony Duquette" manucure.. but this other one now is just as amazing!!! I swear I will try it myself this summer (right now it is raining here in Milan - which is a disaster because of Design Week - so might just wait for sunnier times but will do)

I adore Paola's blog too.

A great happy week to you. Hope you feel better very soon.
