i value the importance of spending time with myself, and i'm not afraid to say it! as much as i love being a wife and a mom, it is one of the things that i learned to indulge in from time to time to create balance in my life. it is as important as date nights with my mister, and dates with my kiddos too!
i miss painting on canvas, spending hours layering paints. unfortunately, time is often taken up by more important things (see photo above). so yesterday, i decided to do some nail art for fun! i found this tutorial from michelle of the laquer files. i don't wear animal prints, so i decided to dress my nails with it! plus the added bonus of painting, but my nails as the canvas!!! the best reason: it was quick!
so here are my leopard pattern inspired nails in turquoise, lime green, and black / dark teal:
here are the colors i used:
dark teal - ski teal we drop, OPI
turquoise - ocean love potion, sephora by OPI
lime green - gargantuan green grape, OPI
black - black onyx, OPI (no photo)
i used black polish instead of the dark teal to make the pattern pop against the lime green. you can use the dark teal for a more subtle look!
life gets quite hectic sometimes, what do you do for yourself?
have a great week!
