#31DC2014 – DAY 31!!! Honour Nails You Love <3

Hi everyone!

I’ve made it! It’s the last day of the 31 Day Challenge and I’ve managed to complete it, for the second time. The past few days my posts have been later than usual as I’ve struggled to get them done but I’ve done each one on the right day so success!

Today’s theme is ‘Honour nails you love’. This can be a tough one – not because I can’t think of nails I love, but because there are so many amazing nail artists and designs out there that it’s hard to choose one. I knew I’d struggle with this, so since the challenge started, I’ve been keeping my eyes open for something I loved. When Victoria from Vic & Her Nails posted these beautiful Chinese pattern nails earlier this month, I decided then and there that that’s what I’d recreate for today.

Day 27 of the 31 Day Challenge: Inspired by an Artwork

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is ‘Inspired by an Artwork’. There are so many beautiful artworks out there – most of which are tough to translate to nail art – but I remembered seeing these amazing nails done by Break Rules Not Nails. They were inspired by an artwork called “Home on the Hill” by Megan Duncanson. It was the first time I heard of Megan Duncanson, but I love the vivid colours and brushstrokes used in all her works. I’ve been keeping this picture around for ages wanting to recreate it, so I finally got my chance. Here’s the original artwork (picture from Google):

31DC2014 Day 2 – Aerosmith for Orange

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! painted-fingertips-31dc2014-31-day-challenge-2014-day-2-orange-aerosmith-logo-nails (more…)

August Tri-Polish Challenge: Octopus nails

Hi everyone!

This month I am taking part in the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts Tri-Polish Challenge once again. This month’s colours are red, blue, and yellow. At first I had trouble coming up with good ideas for these colours (and I still need a couple more ideas!) but then I saw these adorable nails done by Wondrously Polished and I got inspired! essence-wanna-be-your-sunshine-sinful-colours-neptune-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-octopus-anchor-seahorse-starfish-nautical-nails (more…)
