#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. (more…)

It looked perfect enough to be stamped and wonderfully opulent – perfect for a metallic look. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Last week I showed you my first attempt at one-stroke nail art. It was a bit of a fail but I decided to try again. This time I didn’t try using only one colour again – I think that actually made it harder although it seemed easier to use just one colour. I watched several different tutorials before trying this. I think it came out a lot better than my first attempt! (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Gold

Hi everyone!

Today for the Neverending Pile Challenge the prompt was to use an untried gold polish. A few weeks ago, Tip Top South Africa hosted a competition on their Facebook page to create nails with a theme of ‘glitz and glamour’, so I took the opportunity to create these with my untried gold. They’re a lot more blingy than something I’d usually wear, but definitely a lot of fun! (more…)
