Crumpet's Nail Tarts: Hobbies

It's that time of year again - the time for nail art challenges!!  I know, there are nail art challenges year-round, but it just seems like Fall starts a good chunk of them, and is the start of a lot of really fun ones :D

This year I'm participating in the Crumpet's Nail Tarts 52 week challenge!  I'm doing the every-other week challenge that is "themed," and the first theme is "Hobbies."

I have a ton of hobbies, most of which have fallen to the wayside as I've been a stay at home mom and really have little to no time to dedicate to them (other than my nails).  One of my favorite ones, though, that I still manage to sneak in doing here and there, is painting <3

I loooooooove painting, not just on my tiny nail canvases, but on - well, everything!  I paint on canvas, I've painted pottery, metal work, all sorts of things!!  It's a very calming and relaxing hobby for me, which is pretty nice to have when you watch kids all day, and when you're in your third trimester of pregnancy ;)

This nail art design is meant to portray how I see the world.  It's basically black and white, but looks completely different to everyone - it's unique.  I try to paint what I see, the vibrancy of colors I see in real life, the detail (or lack thereof) in things I see, etc.

I hope you enjoy this design, and please be sure to visit the others through the inlinkz below - there are some ridiculously talented ladies in this group that put my little art piece to shame!!



  1. Such a great way to put 2 things you love doing together. This is super pretty :)
