NOTD: When I Feel Blue ... I Paint My Nails

Do you know when you feel blue and you kind of don't really want to stop feeling blue, since you need a bit of self-pitying? Well... I had one of those days yesterday. 
It was becoming really annoying, so I finally decided to do something about it. Heh.

So I painted my nails blue :) And to cheer me up I stamped some smileys on top, so that every time I'd look at it, I would smile/giggle :D

Hm, I'm not really sure why do you say I'm feeling blue? Blue is such a gorgeous colour! It's the colour of the sky, ocean, sleep, twilight. It also stands from inspiration, sincerity and spirituality. So, what's not to love about it? It's also one of my favourite colours beside green and pink :)

Base: Dote Style Apaxionada
Stamping: Joy F23
Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store m51

I also wanted to tell you what I usually do when I'm feeling blue. :)
1. I paint my nails with a funky theme - that makes me smile every time I look at my manicure
2. I take a walk and concentrate on all the beauty that surrounds me
3. I read some hilarious pages like Damn You Autocorrect :D
4. I look at gorgeous pictures online (whatever inspires me at that moment)
5. I sing aloud (that ALWAYS cheers me up).

What do you do when you're feeling under the weather?

Fuuul lepo!! :D Ta modra mi je res vsec. Aja ti priporocam, da si nabavis novi stampy lak - srebrn od Essence. Je SUPER! Bolj tanke konsistence, ampak odtisne se z lahkoto.

Prettyyyy! I love that color!
I have bought some equipment for nail stamping, but I just can't get my head around doing it right. I never works and always ends up smearing all over the place. :( I officially can't nail-stamp!

BTW: If you love hilarious websites - do you know Passive Aggressive Notes and Regretsy? If not, I can only recommend to check them out!

I love the "cheer up" mani!
When I was younger sometimes if I felt blue I put on a bright red lipstick (to stay at home, my mum thought I was crazy). Now if I have the time I take care of my nails (with something challenging as nail art) or try some crazy eye makeup. If I am both blue and tired I fill the tub with very hot water, take a funny book and spend some time reading surrounded by foam :-)

Lovely mani! I agree, drawing, painting, generally colours have always made me feel better.

ElectronicRainbow: Thank you for the links, I've never heard of them, but they look fun :D You just need a bit of practice with stamping. You should've seen my first attempts :P

Maisenzasmalto: Thank you :) I love the idea of a red lipstick as a pick me up :)

Thank you NatalieDuoka :)
