    31DC2015 Day 26: A Pattern – More Mara

    Day 26 of the 31 Day Challenge already? Wow. That was sort of not really quick! Today’s prompt is Inspired By A Pattern. Nice. It’s no secret that I love patterns. And colour. And design. And spinach, but I digress. I had so much troubble picking one Mara Hoffman print for yesterday’s Fashion inspiration prompt, that I thought I’d do

    31DC2015 Day 25: Fashion – Mara Hoffman

    I wanted to go all out with a nice bold print for Day 25’s Fashion prompt in the 31 Day Challenge. So I chose a Mara Hoffman print to replicate. There were so many to choose from, but I settled on one after much deliberation. I chose this New York fashion designer because I love her prints. This Bohemian style is

    31DC2015 Day 24: A Book – Green Eggs & Ham

    Today’s 31 Day Challenge prompt is literally literal. It’s Day 24 and the prompt is Inspired By A Book – Green Eggs & Ham. More like devilled eggs, but I thought I should go a bit Seuss. You might have guessed by now that I do have an often warped sense of humour, so it made sense to run with it

    31DC2015 Day 23: A Movie – Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 3D

    Hello again. Back with some whacky nail art today as we glide into Day 23 of the 31 Day Challenge. I couldn’t decide on something given there is so much choice. In the end I settled on an animation. #31DC2015 options argh! In the end I decided to go with Day 23: A Movie – Cloudy With A Chance of

    31DC2015 Day 22: Inspired By A Song – Rubber Band, Bowie

    31 Day Challenge and the first Inspired By prompt falling on Day 22 is Inspired By A Song – Rubber Band, Bowie. David Bowie. I thought I would pick something random and obscure, so it fits the bill there. And to celebrate 50 years of David Bowie. The track itself was a bit of a flop, but was one on

    31DC2015 Day 21: A Colour – Golden Child

    31 Day Challengers rejoice! We’ve started the 3rd leg of this enormous challenge. The Inspired By… prompts. They aren’t my favourite, but I prefer them to the colour prompts. Here we have #31DC2015 Day 21: A Colour – Golden Child. My colour of choice is, you guessed it, Gold. I thought I would go for a full skittle manicure –

    31DC2015 Day 20: Water Marble – Marbellous

    We are now in Day 20 of the 31 Day Challenge and the prompt that many of us either love or hate has arrived. Yup, Day 20: Water Marble – Marbellous. I do like marbling and the effect it gives, but it does eat through polish and can be hit or miss, so it’s not something I do all the time. The

    31DC2015 Day 18: Half Moons – New Moon

    When I saw that today’s prompt being Day 18: Half moons and all I could think of was Frank Sinatra’s old tune, Blue Moon. You know the one: Blue moon You saw me standing alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own So I ignored it and did something totally different. And went with angular

    31DC2015 Day 17: Glitter – Smokin’ Mirrors

    31 Day Challenge Day 17’s prompt is GLITTER. So more sparkles, yeahh! I guess not having working lights has made me like shiny, blingy things even more so this past week. I thought about going for the full finger disco thing, but since I have done a bit of that already throughout the challenge, I opted for a glitter polish

    31DC2015 Day 16: Geometric – Call Me Angle of The Morning

    Another day, another punny title. Yawn!  Today is one of my favourites: Geometric! Yay! I love the shapes and angles they create. Hardly biased. Nope, not at all as a design nerd. Who likes sleek lines. Or architecture. Or interiors. And for the record, I loved triangles long before Hipsters stole them 😉 Anyhoo, today’s title is inspired in part by

    31DC2015 Day 15: Delicate Print – Matte About You

    Day 15 of the 31 Days in this 31 Day Challenge. I’m calling it halfway. Delicate Print was the prompt. I call this one Matte About You. I have printed a delicate pattern over 3 fingers and used mattified caviar beads for the feature nails. I considered doing some fine lines painting, but am posting and was completing this really late.
