    Why it’s almost the end of the #31DC2017 (oh thank god!) and we’ve hit the 29th’s Inspired by Supernatural prompt.   I went with hand-painted symbols inspired by illustrated shadow-side imagery, the kind related to magic glyphs & tarot ✨ Look Ma, it’s matte! Who doesn’t love how sexy matte nails look? The base is Blink one-step gel from @madam_glam which you can see

    31DC2017 Day 28: A Flag – A Li’l Bit British

    My least favourite prompt in the #31DC2017 is the Flag one. Every year. It is the least inspiring yet I’ve never done a ‘serious’ flag, like for realsies. Didn’t entirely do that this year either, but incorporated the British Flag into a mani with some metallic decals I had on hand.     I did some matte stamping with Plate BP-L078 from @bornprettystore (use

    31DC2017 Day 24: A Book – On The Road

    Day 24 of the 31 Day Challenge prompt is: A Book – I had done ‘On The Road’ by Jack Kerouac. Mainly because I want need a holiday and can’t have one. It’s definitely not a want, and more of a need. Yes, really. So luckily I have a good imagination haha! Doesn’t  fully compare, but beats staring at nothingness…

    Like a Bride who’s fashionably late, running a little behind with the #31DC2017 movie prompt, so you get a dodgy pic from the vault, on poor Cindy no less. Also leaving me to match a movie to the mani rather than the other way around.   A double up challenge day today. 31DC Inspired by a Movie combined with the Metallic Chrome
