  17. I have a friend from College who studied art and she used to paint these designs on to her nails and sometimes used to do mine with such precision and raw talent. Also, what really surprised me is that she would used the same brush from the nail polish and was able to paint the finest line or the thickest strokes with it. Of course I tried it once and I can't paint anyway so I knew that I am not talented in that way.

    I have an idea that will help you with your goal of painting a new design each day...How about painting one country flag each day, starting with your own country flag and then working your way through them one by one. I think that would be really good.

  18. Thank heavens I'm male and do not have to (???) disimprove (phrased carefully) (???) my fingernails... ;-))

    But more or less everything is a matter of taste...
    ...so enjoy your daily artwork / finger exercises!

    Regards from the other side of the big pond,

    Uwe.

  19. Are you damn serious?! Your "masterpieces" look like children designed them during a weekend of Vacation Bible school, better YET, it's worst than the SEX SCENE on "Howard the Duck"!!!!....JUST TERRIBLE!

    Clearly your "fanbase" must talentless women who apparently don't KNOW half about "ART" because anyone who feels THIS is art EXCELLENT, CREATIVE and ingenious is obviously BLIND & a FOOL.......it's TERRIBLE!!!! Simply terrible.

    And to think you have some 246 destined followers & you're a newbie that "Blog of Notes" has nominated as "great" a pure joke. I've seen MORE refreshing ideas hidden in a teen's diary then YOUR blog. At this POINT YOU need to go to your nearest library and pick up a "Art for Dummies"....you need it BADLY.

  24. This is fun! LOVE the ninja nails! It makes me want to take care of my nails more hahah.

    Do you paint over fake nails or are those your real nails?

    Ignore people that take life/BLOGS too seriously :P

  25. This is what we call art.
    Could you give me some tips as a beginner?

  26. Karen Adams, jealous much?? Isn't the internet great, you can spew miserable elitist BS without regard to feelings or repercussions.

    Do you have credentials or a portfolio to share to back up your critique? Heck, I think the paintings by the "greats" in art (Picasso, etc) all look like kindergardeners were let loose with fingerpaint.

    I think the blog is incredibly fun and I look forward to new entries everyday. Keep up the good work!!

    don't mind her.

  31. Karen Adams - You need to relax. Art is in the eye of the beholder. Just because she is doing her own thing and people happen to like what she is doing and happen to give her props doesn't mean you need to tear her down for no good reason! I wonder if you have children...would you consider your child's kindergarten artwork just "terrible" because it wasn't considered real "art" in your eyes. Art is about expression and creativity. I have not seen anyone else with the creativity to come up with this idea. I said it before and I'll say it again, Art is in the eyes of the beholder! Just because her art is too ascinine for your tastes doesn't mean that others feel the same. Why don't you just stop tearing people down because they are actually adding a little bit of light in an otherwise dreary world? You seem to need to take the stick out of your but and get a freaking clue! No one wants your opinions!
