Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 24 – Abstract

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge is abstract. When I saw Gnarly Gnails’ post for day 22 – surrealism – I loved it so much that I had to recreate it for today.

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 22: Surrealism

Hi everyone!

I made it! A little later than usual, but I made it in plenty of time and I have some great Surrealism nails for you today. I was pretty concerned about these because I knew from the beginning I wanted to recreate Dali’s The Persistence of Memory… but I also knew how tough that would be! Luckily, I think I was pretty successful.

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 20: Pop Culture

Hi everyone!

It’s almost the end of week 3 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails. Today’s theme is Pop Culture. I struggled for a while thinking of ideas for this theme, but after some thought I realised one of the main aspects of our pop culture is celebrities – whether they are singers, actors, or simply rich ‘personalities’, most of us have at least heard of them and some people relish knowing as many details of their lives as possible. Of course, here in the nail community, different nail art styles are a part of our specific pop culture, so I decided to combine the two and do a recreation of some celebrity nails.

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 19: Game Night

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge is Game Night. I struggled for a while to think of a good idea for this one, but eventually another mani I’d seen recently surfaced from the back of my mind and I realised it was perfect for this theme. For the life of me, I can’t remember where I saw this, and I couldn’t find it with a quick search because too many similar designs have been done, so please do let me know if you know who did it!

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 18: Sci-Fi – Green Lantern

Hi everyone!

It’s day 18 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and today’s theme is Sci-Fi. This gave me the perfect opportunity to do a nail design that’s been milling around in the back of my mind for some time – Green Lantern nails. I do like Green Lantern, but I’m not really a huge fan… unlike my boyfriend! Green Lantern is one of his favourite figures because the fact that the Green Lantern uses his will to fight is very true to life – each one of us has to use our will to get any of the things we have in life. I do think it’s a very cool concept which is why I decided to represent it on my nails today.
