Before Sunday arrives, I wanted to update you a bit about what started early this year: my Mani Sunday column was born back when I posted my very first nail-art tutorial on February 16th to share with the world my passion for nails and well-cared-hands.

Then, while in module 3 of The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design e-course, I invited some of my fellow designers to lend me their nail-art designs for me to paint them on my nails and feature them on La Pâtisserie des Idées (you can now see them all in the UrNails jux gallery).

Once the first round of showcases was finished, I decided to go one step further and start my very own Vimeo channel (UrNails) with nail-art video-tutorials. So far I've created 2, and I plan to continue with them. I really enjoy nail-art and consider it a nice and relaxing creative outlet. For those of you who haven't seen them yet… here are the first two nail-art video-tuts:

Enjoy them and don't forget to come back next Sunday for number 3 ;)
PS. There's a whole new gallery called UrNails, where I post the pics you send me of your own gorgeous manis (+ my own); a place packed with inspiration and beautiful nails! Don't be shy… share them with me and the world :)
