The most pleasant surprise of spring, aside from the vitamin D, is the sweet smell of those blossoming buds. Anna and I took a walk through her garden yesterday and I couldn’t help but force her to let me paint her nails in the spirit of our stroll! Not like it took much convincing… and let’s be real, the flower art was totally her concept. I’ve shied away from flowers in the past because I didn’t think I would be very good at it, so it’s always great to get a push in the right direction. I’m very pleased with this set, after all, flowers are so lovely!! Below are some spring floral inspirations:

Happy Hanukkah! Judaism, represeeeent. I’m not Jewish, but I was raised in a predominantly Jewish community and thus have a serious affinity for the celebrations! Molly asked me to paint her this set right before we left school for holiday break and she headed back to Orange County. I didn’t think I’d be able to pull off that teeny-tiny dreidel, but I’m so impressed with myself!
