Ballet Nails and a Heart to Heart

Hello to all you wonderful people.

Today's post won't be your usual Mina-happy-gibberish. I'm kinda down actually. 
Nail art hasn't been feeling right for me lately. I've actually been loving one colour nails these days or even nude nails (as in no polish but base coat) - oh, the blasphemy!

And let's face it, that's not even worth blogging about. Which, would be a good thing, seeing I'm fed up with editing and writing blog posts for the time being, 'cause I've got zero motivation for it.
This used to be a hobby but I'm feeling like it's become a task, with priorities and set dates and prompts and whatnot.

And the fault of that is probably mine - we all love going beyond what we need to do to keep the fun going, right? - so we'll see what the future holds.

For the time being, let's have a look at what I did today:

Ballet pastel nails!!!

'Cause they're cute and I like cute.

I still enjoy nail polish and paiting my  nails and freehanding and all.
But maybe I just need to look at it from another angle. 
And it's not like I'm a big fish in the pond and like I'm letting anyone down anyway, right? 
For a moment I think we all forget why we do it and stop doing it for ourselves. That's when the mess begins, I suppose.

So bear with me if I step aside for a lil' while or even if I don't and just post whatever random simple thing I want, ok?
Thank you all for being amazing and lovely and awesome <3

Hugs & Kissies,
Mina *


  1. Sweetie, this post makes me sad, but at the same time I understand where you're coming from. Take a rest from blogging and who knows maybe ideas will start flowing again and you'll find more passion for it. We will be here waiting for you whenever you are ready! Oh, got so emotional that I forgot to mention that this nail art is a masterpiece! Probably one of the best you have made ❤

  2. These nails are so cute with the ballet images.

  3. This nail art is gorgeous and so bloody cute! I sometimes wonder how people keep up with all the prompts and challenges, no wonder you need a break! But you are a great artist and I'd love to have half of your free hand skills! Take as long as you need, I'm definitely not going anywhere! Xx

  4. Big hugs and love for you Mina xx Take some time to yourself, we'll always be here for you to support you!
    You don't look like you've lost your nail art mojo though, these are beautiful <3

  5. I completely understand how you feel. I have been feeling like this for s long time hence me not posting as much as I used to. I felt like it started to become a chore and not as enjoyable as it used to be. I was always stressed trying to get reviews and swatches done, so I slowed down. It can be very stressful at times but just do whatever feels right for you. You are an amazing nail artist xx

  6. I think you're a big fish in the pond and I love all your nailarts ! You're so talented !!! But having fun is the most important thing and it's your blog so post or don't post every/anything you want, I'll be here when you're ready !
    Big hugs to you Mina !
    (PS: this nailart is amazing !)

  7. First of all...your manicure is really pretty! Secondly, you've got to do what is best for you. If that means taking a break, that's okay! I'll miss your pretty nails, but completely understand <3

  8. These ballett nails are fabulous! You are very talented!
    Ok, that was the easy part.
    Are you kidding, sweetie? You are a very big and important fish whose absence will be very noticed and missed!! But...more important is your happiness and enjoyment of life. I'm sorry for being a stalker and not a better commenter - but I have really enjoyed and been inspired by you. So if this is it, I will be sad...but if not...I will be here watching for a glimpse of you in the pond. :)

  9. Sounds like you need (and deserve) a bit of a break. Pressuring yourself isn't helpful at all, I know all to well how it sabotages you. I hope you will find some joy in blogging again and can leave the obligation behind. We'll always be here to read and enjoy your work!

  10. Awww, take a break and then see if you can remember to please yourself! No-one else matters, you just need to post and please yourself with what you share. I'll be right here waiting for you. Your free-hand work always inspires me <3 It doesn't matter what size fish you are, all the fishies are important xx

  11. Oh, my?! And you want us to give you a break when you're using such a gorgeous mani to announce us that you'll be slowing down? Geez, I can't even be mad at you! Ballet slippers for goodbyes, hear that? pfff!

    There comes a time for color, there comes a time for stamping
    a time for freehands and a time for breathing.
    A time for base coats
    and a time for nudes
    a time for you, the most
    important . What exudes?
    we'll wait
    and see
    and wait
    and love <3

    You're a being of the world. There's another flow of energy going through you right now and you've done well to not fight it and just let it take you where it wants to! Breath in the new inspo, breathe out, it'll still be wonderful!


You just made this girl smile! Thank you for your comment and for sharing your thoughts with me! :)
