    31DC2016 Day 25: Fashion – Tropical Spring

    Today’s prompt is Fashion. Day 25 and I was inspired by a Tropical Spring kind of print on an item I saw in a department store. Cannot for the life of me find the photo I thought I took. As you know, it’s been pretty hectic around this neck of the woods. I did a gradient stamp over white in

    31DC2016 Day 22: A Song – Bowie

    Not a single song so much as tribute. ~10 months ago the world lost a legend. David Bowie, so I’ve done a tribute nail to kind of all his songs and his last album Blackstar. Just because. So day 22’s Song prompt comes with artistic license of the kind David Bowie took in his art.   On fakies because I

    31DC2016 Day 21: A Colour – Black Heart

    Black Heart is the theme for today’s prompt in the 31 Day Challenge – which is Inspired by a Colour. This day I went with black. Classic, sleek, and time saving! I used Cuccio gel polish – it’s colour rich in two coats and lasts for a decent length of time on me if wearing normally for longer than a

    31DC2016 Day 20: Water Marble – Sorta

    Hello! Miss me? I did, no knowing where I was from one moment to the next and rushing around like The Flash…it was hard to catch up with myself. Enough of that, I am back for the 20th installment of the 31 Day Challenge, which I had to stop suddenly. Lucky I did this water marble. Because I had a

    31DC2016 Day 11: Polka Dots – Goin Dotty

    I’m most definitely going dotty on this 11th day of the 31 day challenge. The exhaustion is strong. Not from manis, but the combination of mani’s, packing and not enough sleep. My poor hands are so dry and wrecked from all the boxing – even with gloves. So a simple tip of confetti is what we have for today. Dotting

    31DC2016 Day 10: Gradient – Sunset

    Day 10 and still clinging on! This has amazed me. Today’s prompt of Gradient is based on one I’ve done before using the same colours: Sunset. I always wanted to do it matte though so this was the chance. This is my favourite as it’s all mattified. I used vinyl zig zags and sponged on the colours using a make-up

    31DC2016 Day 09: Rainbow Fright

    Day 9 of this Challenge is Rainbow. I name him Rainbow Fright (instead of Rainbow Bright) as it is a bit horriffic. It was never going to see the light of day, and was done before I had to trim the nails back down due to all this packing. So the nail length is not due to the spilling of liquid

    31DC2016 Day 08: Metallic – Metallic-ahh! (& Born Pretty Chrome Review)

    Day 8 of the 31 Day Challenge already?? Yikes. And the prompt being Metallic, I’ve named it Metallic-ahh! And of course I HAD TO USE ALL THE CHROME! “ChRomeo, chRomeo! Were art thou, chRomeo?” Ooh, on my fingertips! It’s mirrored in real life but was hard to capture without all the reflection going on and obstructing the imagery I added.

    31DC2016 Day 07: B&W – Geometric

    Short. Sweet. Geometric. That’s all we have for Day 7’s Black and White prompt. At least I am now 7 for 7, considering my earlier lowered expectations for being able to do the 31 Day Challenge for 2016. Yay, me! I like high contrast with the dark and light properties of black and white so opted for a simple and

    31DC2016 Day 06: Violet Crumble

    Day 6 and I haven’t skipped a beat. Though the arhythmias this box packing is giving me perhaps have. Today is late but better late than never right? The prompt is Violet aka Violet Crumble cos the stamp I used looked like some kind of futuristic honeycomb. Sort of. And technically it’s more of a purplish shade than violet if you

    31DC2016 Day 05: Blue Hoo, Don’t Cry

    Day 5 and I’m 5 for 5! All things considered, that’s pretty good so far. Since I’m knee deep in boxes and thought it’d be far less than that. Today is Blue and whilst I got something done, it was short and sweet stamping. I’ve titled this one “Blue Hoo, Don’t Cry” because it was the punniest pun I could

    31DC2016 Day 04: Green Around The Gills

    Day 4 of the 31 Day hallenge already! And we are at Green. So here is a super easy dry brush, brush stroke-y Green Around The Gills. At least I managed to get something done as opposed to skipping a day, so it’s nothing too skilled here, but time poor so it is what it is. Didn’t want to take
