Today's nail art is very similar to the 'White Space' look I did a few weeks back. I just loved it so much that I knew I'd have to try it again and here we are!
I LOVE THEM BOTH & CAN'T PICK A FAVE FROM THE 2 :)

Story
Introduction

I Design & Create my own OOAK Jewellery - "Rainbow Gem Designs" selling mainly on Etsy - www.Rainbowgemdesigns.etsy.com [SRA] *When health & pain allow*

I ENJOY ART IN MANY MEDIUMS - I LOVE COLOUR! - I'M ADDICTED TO ALL THINGS GLASS FROM - LAMPWORK GLASS BEADS TO ... ART-GLASS / SCULPTURES / ART MARBLES & PAPERWEIGHTS - PERFUME BOTTLES / STAINED GLASS / FUSED GLASS & ON IT GOES.... 

I SUPPORT HANDMADE & AM AN ETSY SUPPORTER & HAVE MY OWN SHOP THERE - BUT ALSO JUST TO PROMOTE CREATIVITY IN THE NUMEROUS AMOUNT OF WAYS I CAN - WHETHER TO SUPPORT FELLOW ARTISANS IN WHATEVER FIELD OF EXPERTISE ...TO CRAFTS – ‘DIY’ & UP-CYCLING + RE -CYCLING  ITEMS TO CREATE ART OR SOMETHING USEFUL OR EVEN MORE AMAZING & BEAUTIFUL THAN THE ITEMS STARTED OUT... It never ceases to Amaze me how talented & artistic we humans can be!  

I ALSO HAVE A FASCINATION FOR ALL TYPES + STYLES OF ART INC. ABSTRACT - STREET ART - ANIMATION  - POP - DIGITAL ART - FRACTALS - FEMME ART OR ILLUSTRATIONS - WATERCOLOURS - INSTALLATION ART - PAPER ART INC. QUILLING AND I ADORE NAIL-ART TOO

I'M INTO CERAMICS - MOSAICS - ART QUILTS / FELTING / FIBRE ARTS & TEXTILE ART - EVEN FURNITURE DESIGN - ARCHITECTURE - ANTIQUES & VINTAGE ITEMS - ART DECO & ART NOUVEAU - GEMSTONES & JEWELS - I LOVE TRINKET BOXES & COLLECT THEM (IF I HAD THE MONEY I'D COLLECT ART-GLASS TOO... sigh...)

I enjoy reading thrillers & mysteries as well as watching them.  Love music but not often able to listen to it much due to so many migraines & constant chronic pain 24/7 ... tends to be a hard thing to enjoy if you can't take noise a lot of the time (don't go to the movies anymore for the same reasons - shame but it, is what it is).

I ADORE ANIMALS & HAVE A 2nd GENERATION OF WESTIES (DOGS) STILL PUPPIES & THEY'RE A BROTHER + SISTER TEAM. OUR LAST WESTIES WERE AWESOME!! LIVING TO 13 YRS. OLD (FEMALE) & 17 YRS.
