My friend Alyson has tried for a while now to convince me to use Instagram. I had started an account at the same time that I started blogging because I wanted to get the same name as my blog. I originally thought I would become this big blogger using multiple social media sites. I soon realized that wasn't in the cards for me. I would like to say it's because I am so busy but the truth is that I would prefer to spend my time doing nail art and unique layering than simply spending my time taking dozens of pictures of plain polish.
When I came home from the hospital, I realized my recover would be slower than I had hoped and I had time on my hands. I didn't have the ability to sit up for long enough time periods to do any great nail art so I took to Instagram. Alyson was right......it is addicting. If you are interested you can follow me @creativenaildesignbysue. I have been posting simple designs that are not included here on the blog. If you are into nail art and post on Instagram, leave your handle in the comments and I would be happy to follow you.
Instagram has introduced me to a variety of new nail art techniques. I recently learned about quilted nails which I will be showing you soon. And, today I learned about a unique technique of water marbling using hairspray. That's right.....hairspray. Check out @amkuch15. She is amazingly talented and super creative. She came up with a twist to traditional water marbling that makes it easier for anyone who just can't get the technique down. I decided to give it a try. I used Cult Nails My Kind Of Kool Aid and did a marble using OPI Sanderella. Amazing....take a look.
