We all know by now that I’m huge into crafts….all crafts, even the old-fashioned types. Well, one rather “traditional” crafty craft is currently having a renaissance of sorts (pun totally intended here), yay for Cross Stitching!! Who remembers their older female relatives cross-stitching cheesy patterns for hours on end?!

I love the modern take on the old trend that’s popping up in the arts & crafts community, so I asked my nail guru Astrowifey to re-create an abstract cross stitch pattern on my nails this week (click my mani image for a closer look.) She used a regular nail polish as the base (Essie Smoking Hot), and different acrylic shades for the pattern. I love the result, it’s modern, whimsical, and gives a nod to old traditions. What do you think about the trend?

    I don’t know about the trend but those nails are friggin’ fabulous! And yet another reminder that I need to visit Astrowifey again soon.
