Back in January I announced, with some moderate fanfare, that I was entering my first nail art challenge (or more accurately, nail art collective; a group of bloggers tossing fun nail art ideas out into the great cyber unknown and seeing what comes back, with very few rules and limitations.)
So I posted my first manicure to the January Nail Art Ideas Linkup (N.A.I.L.) Challenge, thumped my chest a bit and nattered a bunch of slightly new agey nonsense about how inspired I was for a new year of nail art and nail art-related activities. You know, ain’t nothin’ was gonna break my stride, nobody was gonna hold me down, oh no, I had to keep on movin’.
Aaaaaannnnndddd then I got sick for approximately the entire month of January and couldn’t find the energy to paint my nails or blog (or eat or stay conscious for longer than two hours.) So the lesson to be learned here, kids? Don’t make a big show out of announcing your intentions, just do them. Carpe diem and all that jazz, because otherwise you just might be jinxing yourself into a month-long bout of something stupid you just don’t need in your life.
But one thing you might need is another nail art challenge (or prompts, as I think of them.) Once again coming to the rescue on the N.A.I.L. front are Brijit’s Digits, Craftynail and Eeeek! Nail Polish! with a quartet of themes for the month of February, beginning with “Red” and ending with my favourite, “Glitter.” I’m taking part, and you should, too! Just don’t make a big show out of it, yeah? 😉
