    31DC2015 Day 31: Honor Nails You Love – Negative Space

    Yikes it’s the last day of this year’s EPIC 31 Day Challenge! My poor little fingers are shouting hallelujah. They finally get a rest. It gets tiring doing this day in day out on top of other things, yet I’m not a quitter. So here we are. I’m getting in early! The final day is meant to recreate a mani

    31DC2015 Day 30: A Tutorial – Space Pond Nails

    Thought I’d try something different that I never get to do because dry time! As we hit the second last day of the 2015 31 Day Challenge, we have Inspired by a Tutorial. I am doing Space Pond Nails. The original version of pond nails can be traced back to here and has been replicated many times since in various forms.

    31DC2015 Day 29: The Supernatural – Squished Fairy

    31 Day Challenge hits Day 29: Inspired by The Supernatural – Squished Fairy is what I have done. As far as Supernatural goes I was a bit meh about what to do. Being time-poor, I will leave the Zombies and overdone Vampires for another day. I haven’t done a dry marble or needle-drag and thought perhaps I would do a Fairy

    31DC2015 Day 28: A Flag – NZ Laser Kiwi

    I often find the flag nails prompt a little meh. It’s more because I generally prefer to put items representative of a country’s culture on my nails if I am representing a country, rather than a flag, mainly because I can add more variance, do skittles etcetera. And some flag designs are quite simple, so unless it is for the

    31DC2015 Day 27: Artwork – Basquiat

    Back into my beloved realm of the arts with 27 of the 31 Day Challenge. It is Inspired by an Artwork and I have chosen Jean-Michel Basquiat (pronounced ‘Bass-key-ah’ – where the Bass rhymes with mass, and the ‘h’ is short and soft)(if you want to say it correctly as the French do and sound all art nerdy and impressive

    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
