An Evening of Art

Lately I have been reconnecting with my artistic side. In May I discovered that the Art Gallery of Lambeth offers evening lessons during which I could learn techniques from classic to fun-and-messy. But the best part...they supply everything I need and clean up afterward so I just show up, learn, have fun, and walk out with my very own rendition of the painting.

I had so much fun that I thought I'd share it with the world.

In addition to their regular evening & weekend events they offer party packages. Get about 6 friends together, pick your painting, and celebrate! Or...arrange the same for your kids.

Nail Art Tutorial: Spring Blossoms

Spring Blossoms Nail Art Design by Vary Niche dot com: Pink and White Blossoms on a branch painted across fingernails with a teal background.
I don't know if it was the long winter or the brief spring but I feel like I've had this design bottled up for a long time. I've always loved Van Gogh's Branches with Almond Blossoms and flowers seem to be the thing to do with Julep's new nail art tools, So I thought I'd break out my own striping brush and dotting tools to make some pretty spring blossoms...

This should look just as beautiful on short nails as it does on longer nails (and may actually look better on shorter nails) because the design runs across the nails to produce one continuous image rather than up the length of each individual nail.

Have fun and please feel free to post your versions of it in the comments.
