    31DC2014 Day 18: Half Moons

    Day 18 already? Wow. I wonder how many of you are hanging in there still. Good effort if you’ve even made it on getting this far… Pats on the back all round.   Theme du jour was Half Moons. Definitely not my favouritest subject matter in the world, as I prefer them when I let my nails have some extra

    31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter – Glitterati

    Glitter! Like a disco ball for the fingers. Theme for Day 17 of the challenge. I noticed that I haven’t used much pink so far, and since it’s not my most loved colour, it’s a colour that does get a little neglected on my nails. So in order to show some love for all colours in the spectrum, today’s effort

    31DC2014 Day 16: Geometric

    Aah, one of my favourite themes has to be Geometric. Considering I’m a designer, it’s probably not that hard for anyone to guess why… I had grand plans to do something complex, but just didn’t have the time or energy today so I’ve gone for a simple segmented tape-and-shape mani with exposed nude nail lines.   I was going to do

    31DC2014 Day 15: Delicate Print

    As we hit Day 15, we’re heading into the sub-section that I think contains my more favoured challenge themes; not only of the Styles chapter, but of the whole 31 Day Challenge. For the DELICATE PRINT theme I decided the ‘lace doilies’ look was relatively fun. Plus I wanted to use a nude polish in this so far highly colourful

    31DC2014 Day 14: Flowers

    Flowers. A girl’s best friend, and the theme for Day 14. We have nearly hit half way through the 2014 31 Day Challenge and I am going to need a break after this one haha. So much polish, so little time, right? Today’s effort is a simple one. The medium-orange base is from the awesome OPI Brazil collection – Where

    31DC2014 Day 13: Animal Print – Funky Alligator

    I call this one the Funky Alligator. Sounds like a terrible dance that the generic mobile DJ’s might play at weddings and lame events such as those you might see in an Adam Sandler movie, huh? Another quickie for Day 13’s theme of ANIMAL PRINT. I didn’t have my darker greens at hand, so consider this the colour of an

    31DC2014 Day 12: Stripes

    Day 12 of the challenge is STRIPES. So here we have a simple vertical stripe. I really just felt like wearing some classic stripes today. Even if they do almost look a little Beetlejuice-y… I should have done a Beetlejuice feature nail – but oh, the time. Created with striping tape, Sally Hansen White On and Rimmel Aye, Aye Sailor –

    31DC2014 Day 11: Polka Dots

    Feeling dotty? Today is Polka Dot day. Are we already on Day 11? Sheesh. I’m getting in early today. Five fingers and five different pastel colours for this dotticure on a naked base. I used the Ulta3 pastel minis set for these. I was intending to make them matte, but got distracted by the 15 other things I was doing

    31DC2014 Day 10: Gradient

    Day 10 and not much time or energy left, so this one, withe the GRADIENT theme was done rather hurriedly. Therefore it’s a kinda shitty, slightly gritty gradient. Intentionally gritty because I like texture, so I use a particular sponge and dab it on when the polish is tacky. Yah, I ran out of time so it’s far from perfect, but I

    31DC2014 Day 09: Rainbow – Nauseated Unicorn

    Today is day 9 of the 31 Day Challenge and soldier on we are! Nearly a third of the way through, and despite having done most of that over a weekend playing catch-ups, today’s theme is RAINBOW. I call this one ‘Nauseated Unicorn’ – because that is exactly what it looks like. What started out as one thing, morphed into

    31DC2014 Day 08: Metallic

      Day 8 into the 31 Day Challenge. I’m up to date and playing at home in real time. Today we have Metallic as the theme. A favourite of mine for sure. Nothing like some finger-bling. Today I went for a shiny silver combo which includes the fitting polishes Color Club’s Harp On It – a silver linear holo, and OPI My Signature is

    31DC2014 Day 07: B&W

    Day 7: Black and White. Didn’t have a lot of time so this was done really quickly – like you can’t tell hehe. Black freehand illustration over a slightly off-white base – since pure snow white is quite stark, not because I was painting in the dark and picked up the wrong colour or anything. The base is OPI My Vampire
