If you've been blogging for any length of time you know that staying inspired is one of the great blogging challenges, right behind staying consistent with your posting. Being that this blog is my hobby there have been times where I've failed on both of those accounts, but I always find my way back to Lovely In Lacquer.
I'm also incredibly stubborn and hard on myself, which is why I refuse to let a good idea like Color Cues die! So here we are lovely readers, once again. This week's Color Cues is brought to you by a lovely artist who goes by Alicia Marie. I found her art on Society 6, a superb source for artsy fartsy inspiration.
I was inspired by her only piece on the site, titled very simply 'Watercolor'. Painting has always been a source of happiness in the world of art for me and when I was taking painting class every semester in high school I always especially enjoyed the challenge and simplicity that watercolors provided.
With the recent popularity of the OPI Sheer Tints we've seen a huge influx of watercolor style nail art, including the popular Lead Light technique. Alicia Marie's Watercolor reminded me of that but more so of the doodles I loved to do on my notebooks. I was never an accomplished doodler but I did frequently do the same looping and dots design featured in this week's inspiration piece.
I'm very out of practice with nail art but I keep telling myself that once I get a properly sized paintbrush I'll rediscover my love of painting on these very small canvases.
Do you draw any inspiration from this new watercolor nail art style? Let me know in the comments and thanks for reading!
