ok hear me out on this one... We all already know that we compare ourselves probably too much. It takes a very strong person to not fall victim to the temptation to compare. But I think the issue is not so much the comparing, but the reason for comparing. ( how many times am I going to say comparing?!?!)
It's perfectly acceptable to look at someone else's work and think " ooh, those side walls are super straight, I want to work towards that" or " I would love my freehand art to be at this level" it's the bit we do afterwards that is the problem, the little nagging voice that says things like " but I will never be that good" THAT right there is the thing we need to stop!
NO ONE wakes up one day with zero experience in nails, buys a kit and produces work at a superior level! we ALL start at ground zero, we all feel like we are a child learning to write again, we all mess up and think " I will never be good at this"
I shall being going into way more detail on this in this weeks podcast. But I wanted to include some of it in this little blogpost. Whenever you feel like the negative comparisons are creeping in, do yourself a favour, go back to one of the first sets of nails you did and compare them to where you are now. Realise your own progress and how brilliant you are!
