Nail Talk: Julep's Photoshopping Admission - Practical or Too Far?

Hi everyone! I haven't done a Nail Talk post in quite some time. To be honest, there really hasn't been much that I've been wanting to debate or discuss. But a recent article on the Julep blog has gotten me thinking about the practice of photoshopping nail photographs.

Nail Talk: Where Do You Go for Inspiring Nail Art / Nail Art Inspiration?

Hi everyone! I enjoyed the last Nail Talk post, and it was really fun to discuss the issue of multichromes with you, so I thought why not do it again?! I think most people visiting this blog at least have an interest in nail art. And even if you don't do nail art yourself, you may have blogs or places you like to go to look at inspiring nail art. I divided this question into two parts for two reasons - first, I know not everyone reading this does nail art themselves, and second, sometimes we are inspired by things other than nail art.

The question: Where do you go to see inspiring nail art? And if you do nail art, where do you go for nail art inspiration?


My response: I was thinking about this the other day when I was writing my Queen post for The Digit-al Dozen. I find it very hard to be continually inspired when it comes to nail art. Sometimes when I'm doing a lot of challenges, after awhile, I have a hard time coming up with good ideas.

It's also very hard to come up with original ideas. I like to look at other things (besides nail art) when I'm thinking of ideas I'd like to carry out. Art is a favourite of mine, and when I walk through a museum I find myself thinking, "that would look good on my nails" lol! But like many other nail artists and bloggers I tend to get a lot of ideas from image searches on the internet.

As for inspiring nail art, I tend to be really inspired by very intricate nail art, which is not something that's seen very often. I like Pisut Masanong's work whom I learned about on Facebook. I'd love to find more people that do work like this. On Instagram I love Super Fly Nails and Astro Wifey. And I often am inspired by my friend Lindsey at Wondrously Polished. There's a lot more obviously, but in my pre-coffee state, this is what immediately comes to mind.

So tell me - what/who are you inspired by?

All comments are greatly appreciated, but comments with blog links will be deleted - this is always the case but I wanted to post a reminder.

Nail Talk: Multichromes - "More Please!" or "Had Enough!"

Hi everyone! I'm trying something new over here - let me know what you think! I've always wanted this blog to be more interactive. Last year I did a short series of "From the Readers" posts - something that I plan to do again real soon. But I thought it would be fun to do some discussion-style posts. This is just a trial run - I'll do a few and if it doesn't work out, I might not continue.
