Now more then ever is the trend of unique nail polish exploding online and on the streets. Sally Hansen has come out with the peel 'n' stick application, but I find creativity the most inspiring when its authentic. SO here is a post inspired by my cousin's impressive collection of Essie Nail polish below (I'm sure its grown since the summer colours were released) Enjoy some chromatic nail art inspiration!

As a painter my medium of choice is mainly acrylic, however there is a growing infatuation for all things watercolour! There is something about the delicate lines and playful interaction with water that creates an airy quality that melts my heart. But the real kicker is the unexpected range of VIBRANCY you can create with this medium. And It's not just flowers and sunsets. This post was inspired by my personal love for the medium and the unexpected "Decorating with: Painterly Storkes" section of LivingETC's April issue. Here's a round up of watercolour popups !
|Silk Scarf - Desira Pesta via Etsy|
I have an obsession with scarfs, however this amazing one is not in my collection yet!
|Watercolour Palette Iphone Cover - CRAFIC via Etsy|
This Iphone cover is my favourite! Definitely an inspiration to get painting. Now I just need an Iphone.. ?
|Watercolour map - Michael Tompsett|
Such a wonderful watercolour by Michael Tompsett. Rich in chroma but still delicate and beautiful.
|Watercolour Lessons Tank - Mod Cloth|
Love the idea of this tank, however I'm much more compelled to try my hand at making my own version with a nice hot day and some painterly fun! I'll keep you posted on that future DIY project.
|Diamond Watercolour Broach - Emily Green|
This broach were definitely made for me. Diamonds and watercolour! GENIUS! Another wish list item.
|Watercolour Landscape Fabric - Pedroso & Osorio via LivingETC|
This was the loveseat that inspired this post. The image is taken from LivingETC's April issue. The fabric is from a Portuguese company selling to most of Europe with showrooms in Lisbon and Madrid. It would be a dream to check out their gorgeous fabrics in person one day.
|Assorted Painted Cups - Lowri Davies|
This collection of cups by Lowri Davis is playful and delicate like a traditional watercolour, but she adds some stronger accented areas to hold the images. Lovely.
The Alley - Monique Medeiros
|Avo's View - Monique Medeiros|
These two paintings were done by me after my trip to Terceria, Azores, Portugal last summer. Best trip so far. My favourite feature of the island was the cobble streets and little houses piled up along the sides.
