Nails Extravaganza is a meme here on Olivia’s Catastrophe where I share my latest nail art designs with you all.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared a nails extravaganza post. Mostly because I was having some difficulties when it came to nail art. I don’t usually have this with many things, but I started to get in my mind that I wasn’t any good at nail art, and that I shouldn’t even bother trying. It started with doing a couple of designs and mucking them up. But then, even when I was doing my nail art well, I was so unsatisfied. I would look at it, notice one little imperfection or so, and then remove it. I don’t know why it bothered me so much, but I decided I had to give up nail art.
I still did paint my nails in colour though, just without designs. I actually got into nail art because I’m not such a huge fan of my nails. I loved nail polish because I could cover them up 😛 But yeah, I was still doing nail colour, but not nail art.
But I have this nail art buddy, and we share a nail art account. After a couple of months of only her posting, she started to boost my confidence. She encouraged me to do my nails, give it a try, and actually show her before I removed it. And so I did. Because of her kind words and motivation, I managed to get back into it… slowly.
There are some changes. I am going to be working on doing more simple designs and improving my skill before I go back to some of the complicated designs I was able to do before. I’m not going to be making anymore nail art videos. I just don’t want that kind of pressure. But I will still be sharing here and on instagram. It’ll work out, I hope 🙂
And that’s why the first design I decided to do when I got back into sharing my nail art was this simple message. It’s a reminder that you are beautiful. But at the same time, it’s a reminder to be YOU.
