My Blog Title Explained

Alla Prima is an Italian phrase meaning "first time". The term is used for when one paints directly in one session with no under-drawing or painting. It usually refers to oil or acrylic painting.

Ela is me, Elaret, aha and it sounds like Alla.. get it? Oh aren't I clever. Anyway, I like the term and the implications for how I go about doing my nails, polish first and lots of nail polish remover when things don't turn out the way I thought they might. Also, it sounds pretty neat if I do say so myself.

Thanks for reading!
