The blog owner, Sarah, is incredibly talented in the realm of nail art, and has provided inspiration to so many nail polish fanatics, including me. I'm actually lucky enough to live in the same neighborhood with Sarah, and get to hang out with her every once in awhile. She's very sweet, social, and just plain fun to be around.
I decided to try one of Sarah's signature hand poses, though my hands don't look nearly as graceful as hers do... *sigh* :o)
Chalkboard Nails Houndstooth
(American Apparel L'Esprit and OPI Just Groovy)
I kinda of suck at stamping, but I'm determined to practice and get better at it. I was pretty happy with the results this time, even though they didn't come out perfectly.
Here is a picture of the inspiration (just in case she changes the background in the future. She's had quite a few really awesome ones so far!):
Sarah has actually had a bit of backlash of hateful comments and emails after having requested that a particular Instagram user credit her when using her pictures. Not an unreasonable request, but the IG user retaliated in a disgusting manner, and I feel so bad for Sarah having to deal with the aftermath. She works so hard not just on coming up with original creative designs, but also in the execution AND superb photography of them. She definitely deserves to be cited when her pictures are shared.
So I wanted to show her my support, and tell her just how much I personally love her blog and nail art.
You're amazing, Sarah!
