Visual Inspiration: Christmas

Christmas is only 4 days away, and I have yet to post one Christmas/winter nail art design or art project! I searched Flickr for some inspiration, and I came across these photos to share with you. If they inspire a project or design for you, please put a link in the comments section to a photo of your work so I can check it out!

This is a Swarovski Christmas tree, and I like how you can see the sparkles in the photo, as well as the motion blur which turns it into a fuzzy striped/woven pattern

The colorful fern/lacy look with the amber against black is so striking!

This one is fun. It makes me think in a different way.

This one looks like it would make a good puzzle

Visual Inspiration: Red

It’s been a while since I did a Visual Inspiration post, so after a little Flickr search – here it is!

Visual Inspiration: Contrast

Found these on Flickr. You can expect some nail art and other projects from these.
