First off… I am trying to make a come back after a bout of serious sinusitis and basically being laid flat out for 4 straight days. The fall and winter (basically the cold weather) has hit us hard this week and I am hoping that it kills whatever germs are around. Feeling better each day so it’s time to bring the blogging back!
Today I have an ‘outside the box’ post where I am going to talk about three items that I thoroughly enjoy that still revolve 100% around nails and nail art.
First up is Nail’d It which is a show on Oxygen all about nails and nail art! In fact, it’s a weekly competition show where some of the industries most amazing nail artists battle in out for the chance to win $10,000/week and $100,000 as a grand prize.
Sadly, this show is not available in Canada, or at least in my neck of the woods, so I have turned to my BFF, YouTube, and been watching online. It is DA BOMB!!!
The second item is the Nail It! Magazine which is published bi-monthly and is full of amazing nail art, nail care tips, pictures and articles all dedicated to everything nails and polish. My favourite feature every month is the Instgram section where everyday nail art fans have their artwork showcased! It is so fun to see nails that I ‘know’ and recognize… it’s like knowing someone who is famous!
Lastly, let’s mention #nailglossip! Yep, it’s a hashtag… no, it’s not JUST a hashtag, it’s a bi-weekly Twitter chat that is hosted by three of the hottest nail gals, Michelle of All Lacquered Up, Jen of The Polishaholic and Sarah of Chalkboard Nails.
Every other Sunday at 9:00pm EST (the next chat is this coming Sunday, November 16th) a great group of nail enthusiasts gather around their phone/computer and chat about all things nails… anything from indie to mainstream, nail art to naked nails. It’s a great place to learn new techniques and meet people with the same passion as you!
So, as you can see… being into nails and nail polish doesn’t have to stop at painting. There are some awesome mediums that you can enjoy curled up on your couch and get some new ideas for your future painting sessions.
