Where do you Look for Inspiration?

Hey everyone! Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I decided to get you guys some flowers! Okay, so I didn't buy these, I painted them...but they are still pretty fabulous, right? This free handed floral (yayy for practicing my freehand) was inspired by a skirt hanging in my closet.

As much as I love blogging, sometimes coming up with several new/ unique designs every week can be challenging. Lately, I've been in a kind of nail art slump. As much as I'd been researching new nail art techniques and looking up fun mani's, I had a hard time thinking up my own creative designs. 

However, sometimes finding inspiration is simply a matter of looking around you! This week, as I was rummaging around in my closet, I came across one of my favorite skirts and suddenly a light bulb went off. I found my nailspiration :) Turns out all I had to do was turn off my brain and stop trying so hard lol.

But it happens to everyone. Every once in a while, our muse may go on vacation and leave us with a paintbrush in our hand and an empty canvas. But what do YOU do when that happens? Where do you look for inspiration? Comments and ideas always welcome!
