Happy Wednesday everyone!
Recently, I hung out with fashion blogger Ashlie from Aasshhlliiee.com for our monthly nail meet up. At the time, she was working on a blog post centered around spring fashion and different ways to incorporate lace into your wardrobe. Here’s the look we came up with to compliment some of Ashlie’s lace inspired outfits.
Feeling inspired myself, I came up with another lace design, perfect for springtime! Somehow I got it in my head that if I keep doing spring themed manicures, maybe the weather will start to warm up soon. Um, yes, I know that’s wishful thinking. But I would like to point out that this week in NYC, the temperature will hit 60 degrees, not once, but twice.
Coincidence? I think not. Clearly, I have magical nails that influence the weather. But don’t tell anyone or I’ll be forced to curse you with dry cuticles until eternity.
You see? This is what happens when I have too much coffee. Anyway….
My favorite part of this design is how simple it is. I think sometimes I try too hard to keep up with other bloggers (I get a little insecure about my designs which is why I don’t post very often) and always try to do these crazy, intricate designs. And yes, while complex, intricate designs are always fun to look at, I think I need to remember that sometimes, simplicity can be beautiful too. And I need to stop comparing myself to other people. Ugh, I’m working on it.
Buy anyway, today’s life lesson? Sometimes less is more.
