Rango Nails – Inspired by a Movie for day 23 of the 31 Day Challenge

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is inspired by a movie. Not so long ago, I rewatched one of my favourite animations, Rango. It’s a story about a chameleon who is thrust into the role of a hero and has no idea how to fulfill it. I think both the animation and the storyline are brilliant and I highly recommend it! For those of you who haven’t seen it, here’s a trailer: (more…)

One-Stroke Roses for day 22 of the 31 Day Challenge

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is ‘Inspired by a Song’. This isn’t really one of my favourite themes as I don’t think most songs can be represented very well by a picture so I have trouble deciding on my inspiration. I decided to take an easy way out (though not an easy technique) and chose Bon Jovi’s Bed of Roses for my inspiration. (more…)

Half Moon Nails: Day 18 of the #31DC2014

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is Half Moon nails. Half moon nails are usually very elegant and stylish, but honestly, they’re just not me. I’m not a big fan of the look and I was stumped as to what to do for today… until some Googling led me to this beautiful look done by Lucy’s Stash. It’s the second time this week I’ve done nails inspired by Lucie, but I just love her work. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s prompt in the 31 Day Challenge is orange. I was pretty stuck for what do to for this prompt for a while. My boyfriend and I were listening to the latest Aerosmith album, Music From Another Dimension!, when I complained that I needed an idea for orange nails. He immediately pointed out the Aerosmith logo on the album was in orange and I should do that! (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Ugliest Polish

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is your ugliest polish. Again, I had trouble choosing because I didn’t really find any of them that ugly. In the end I chose this one because the base is a pretty traditionally ‘ugly’ colour so I thought it’d be appropriate. (more…)
