This is just a quick post notifying everyone of a new contest/challenge I found on one of my favorite nail blogs, the Nailasaurus. My interest in nail art started at least a decade ago before it was main stream, but I was more of an admirer than a producer. It wasn’t until I saw this image at The Nailasaurus that I was inspired enough to attempt some of the designs myself, especially when I saw what was created in some of these insane challenges were by some of the top nail artists globally.
Don’t let that reality deter you from participating. It’s easy to do; follow the prompt directions, post your submission with your interpretation of that month’s theme. January’s Theme is: “Reinvention” and don’t forget to include the hashtag #LLreinvention, which will work across all social media platforms. No matter where you post your submission, you will be connected with other nail art enthusiasts participating in the challenge. This is going to be a fun, low-commitment, and inspirational social event.
A couple of weeks ago I stumbled into Polyvore and have been hooked ever since. I blame Pinterest. If you have followed the Shoe-aholics Dilemma series, you know that I have used Polyvore to create the images. I have had a blast discovering different brands, seeing how other’s are wearing the current trends, and most importantly, seeing how the fashion savvy are creating trends on their own. I have been truly inspired and revitalized with the amazing fashion sets I have seen.
The image displayed above is called “Feeling Dainty” and I created it with the Polyvore “mini editor” on StylEnigma’s Facebook page. I would have loved to have the mini-editor here, but WordPress doesn’t support the application, which is a travesty in my opinion. Thankfully, Facebook does, and I would love to see what my blog followers can come up with, seeing as many of you are fashion bloggers, or are otherwise creative creatures. I don’t consider myself to be particularly artistic, and I impressed myself creating Feeling Dainty, so I know you guys will blow me away.
Please visit my Facebook page and play with the mini editor and don’t forget to follow PLEASE!!! All images will be saved in the mini editor gallery for others to enjoy, you can pick your favorites and I can feature them here. I am excited, and I hope to see you there – and here.
