Happy Saturday! The weekend is actually when I either do manicure after manicure or I give my nails a break. I’m not sure what type of weekend this will be just yet. So I decided to tackle the discussion of manicure recreations.
Sometimes we have ideas just flowing out of our brains on what we want our nails to look like. But other times we may need a little bit of help, and that is where recreations come in.
Now there is controversy at times, some say this is the best way to show a nail artist that you appreciate their work and others say it is stealing. What do you guys think?
In my opinion I feel that is it the highest form of flattery as long as you give credit to the person who you are imitating. This especially on Instagram is simple, all you do is mention or tag the person.
But on the other hand we all had to imitate someone. Nail art usually always comes about because we were inspired by someone else. Even if it is not an exact representation, we still take a few ideas from here and there and add our twist. So again just give credit where credit is due.
I love recreations as someone just starting out in nail art. Starting off easy and then challenging oneself only makes us better. So scroll them Instagram and look at your favorite nail artists and recreate with a twist. Just please give credit. If you do any please tag me so I can see.

Please tag me and share your recreations. Have fun and remember I am polishing over chronic illness one mani at a time!
