They say that 'Done is Better Than Perfect' and it's a mantra that I've been trying to adopt recently. I'm a perfectionist to the core which can be a great thing but also means that I procrastinate whenever I doubt my ability to complete the task at hand to 'perfection'. I have so many ideas scribbled down for this blog but because of that mind block, I've been putting them off for too long.
This weekend, I told myself that enough is enough - my blog has become too formulaic, too predictable and it's no fun for anyone! I want to start mixing things up and I think the best way to do that is to proclaim my intention to you guys. If I say it, I have to do it right? And I figure that the best way to do it is to push forward with a new set of ideas. Even if it's not perfect, it's better than nothing!
I won't be doing anything too drastic. There will still be a lot of my 'regular' posts like this one with some nail art and a bit of chat but I want to splice in some other types of posts too, like little extra treats to fill things out at least once a week!
I used Kriston 05 as my base colour as it's a very light shade of mint.
Using the Saran Wrap technique, I created the mottled effect with the Kriston shade, NYC Water Street Blue, NYC Blue Sky and Rimmel Aqua Cool.
I added some of the Silver Triangle embellishments from She Sells Seashells. I gently curved them first using a pair of tweezers so they'd sit flush to my nail.
It's all topped off with a Color Club Top Coat.
