40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Hobbies - Art


Happy Friday!

Today begins a new nail art challenge for me with Crumpet's Nail Tarts. Every other week I'll have a mani for you with a specific theme and so will AT LEAST 40 other nail artists! You will be able to check them all out in the links at the bottom. Need inspiration? We've gotcha covered!

Today's theme is Hobbies. I have a lot of hobbies but none has been more of a life-saver or sanity-saver than painting has been for me so that's the direction I took.

I used a base of Elevation Polish Mount Ventoux. Typically yellow hates me, but this is the best one I've found for my skin tone (it still doesn't love me but it doesn't give me zombie hands like most) and I've actually used it so much for nail art and various things that I've had to order my second bottle of it. The rest was done with acrylic paints. It's really not as bright as it's reading here - it's a soft, buttery yellow.

After I lost my husband to cancer I started painting to keep from losing my mind and it's done the job for me. A relaxing, creative outlet.

One of my favorite quotes is: "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." - Pablo Picasso

So I added it over one of my paintings as my everyday FB cover photo:

It's one of the few paintings I've done that's not more abstract. And Now that I have it uploaded here, I'm seeing that it's a really bad photo of it with all the glare.

Next hobby if I ever get the time? Photography because it's SO not my forté and I am quite interested. It just seems so complicated and overwhelming.

What are your hobbies? What keeps you sane?

Be sure to check out all the other manis in the links below - more will be added all throughout the day!

Happy Painting!

Darling Diva Polish
Hug My Face Collection (aka The Alien Collection)

Hi everyone! I'm a little late with this collection - still playing "catch-up" with everything. But holy COW you guys! I think she named one of these incorrectly - even if my name doesn't fit with the theme, with is the movie Alien. I think it should be called "Drops Mic, Walks Away" - see if you can guess which one!

There are nine of these so I have a ton of photos. Drag up a chair.

Full swatches and review after the jump...
