Inktober Day 1: Ring

Well it certainly has been a little hiatus hasn't it? When my operating system decided it didn't like my version of Photoshop anymore, I just sort of quit taking nail pictures without a way to edit them. But, in the spirit of the most jolly holiday, Halloween, I bit the bullet and bought a subscription to the online Photoshop version. So, we'll celebrate Nailed It's return to the blogosphere with my favorite month...Inktober!

Inktober is an online challenge designed for pen and ink artists, but I liked the prompts so much last year, I decided to follow along with nail art. (Check out last year's designs through the "inktober" tag here.) Here are this year's prompts:

As it's the first day of October, today's prompt is "ring". I did a brainstorming session, writing down all the words that "ring" reminded me of. One thing I wrote down was "wrestling", and that's ultimately what I decided to run with for my design. So here are my little Mexican wrestling nails!

  • Sation: Strumming My Nails and Super Nail-tural Powers
  • Zoya: Cam, Darcy, Dory, Cecilia

Join me in celebrating Inktober! I promise some good stuff to come, and I'd love to see any creations you come up with!

    1. I appreciate that! It’s different than what your mind might go to initially when you hear “ring”.
