Have you ever wondered where people who wear nail art get their ideas and inspiration from? Clients often ask us, “Do people show you a picture from Instagram? Pinterest? Do they bring you their own ideas? How do they think of or where do they get their ideas?”. It is true that often people will present to us photos of other current nail designs. Clients will also alter designs or mix and match different designs to create their own. If you’re looking to advance to the next level of inspiration and are bored of the trending art you are seeing lately, read on for some advice on how to see with your nail art goggles on!
Inspiration surrounds us. It is literally everywhere. ANYTHING could be a nail design. Let’s start with clothing and fashion as our muse. Patterns on shirts are proving to be successful in transferring to your nails. You already know it is wearable and they are often just enough interest without being overpowering. Take a look at these examples.
Continuing on the subject of fashion, we have also seen some rad handbags offer up inspiring looks.
Now that you’ve seen some designs from what you wear, let’s move on to designs that come from the printed form. Imagery from brochures, greeting cards, paper goods, and even art prints are all great places to pull from. If you see something that is beautiful, you love to look at it, and it just makes you happy inside, why not wear it on your nails and enjoy that image every day!? Images can range from things that are simply fun to look at to things that offer a deeper meaning for you. We have seen anything from people’s personal business brands as daily reminders to continue to follow their dreams or even running marathon logos to motivate and empower them to push through the race.
So now that we have shed some light on the possibilities that surround you, let’s see some of your inspiration come through! But before you go, here is one more fun inspiration to indulge in.
