    31DC2015 Day 14: Flowers – Settle Petal

    Hey, hey! Day 14’s 31 Day Challenge prompt is Flowers. I decided to do abstract flowers. So here is my effort for Flowers – Settle Petal. I had always planned to go a little abstract, but it turned out I had to be more than anticipated due to circumstance. So I’m not sure I’m completely sold. It was going so well.

    31DC2015 Day 13: Animal Print – Zebra’s X-ing

    This Animal Print prompt for 31 Day Challenge Day 13 was inspired by Zebras. I’ve already done a recent black & white based mani, so this one had to be coloured and metallic. It’s a little bit more meh than I was hoping for. I did a ‘watercolour’ polish base over Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Then layered some silver

    31DC2015 Day 12: Stripes – You’re Naughty-cal

    Hello Day 12. Say an even bigger hello to Stripes. Prompt for today. I was feeling naughty and went a little navy and nautical. So I’ve named this one ‘You’re Naughty-cal’… It’s not too complex in terms of how stripey one can go with the striped theme, but neither did I want it that way. I paired it over a

    31DC2015 Day 11: Polka Dots – Feeling Dotty?

    As we hit the end of Section 1, we begin my favourite section Styles. Beginning this second chapter is the Polka Dot prompt. Are you Feeling Dotty? I certainly was after placing all these glitter dots as equally spaced apart as I could in dim light with a pencil, some tape and a paperclip. I tell you, I have always been

    31DC2015 Day 10: Gradient – Hey, (H)Ombre!

    I love a good gradient and today was one I was looking forward to. (Watermarbling probably less so, but I’m sure I’m not alone haha. I do like it, however a cold room does not exactly help). Anyway back to Day 10: Gradient. Or keeping up with the terrible 31 Day Challenge puns – Hey, (H)Ombre! I know, terrible. Stop throwing your tomatoes

    31DC2015 Day 09: Rainbow – ColourFull

    With Rainbow as the prompt for today, I thought it would be high time to do something fun as well as colourful. Full of colour with a bit of Sparkle. Thus this Mani Moniker: ColourFull. So I’ll post first and answer questions later. We’ve almost hit the end of the first leg of the challenge Colours, before we move into the second

    31DC2015 Day 08: Metallic – Foiled My Plans

    31 Day Challenge is powering ahead and we have hit Day 8. The theme is Metallic. Or again, to keep up with my naming theme – Day 08: Metallic – Foiled My Plans. I’m kinda happy with how it turned out in terms of interpreting the brief and level of shininess. I wanted to do more, but decided to leave it. I

    31DC2015 Day 07: B&W – No Shades of Grey

    Wow already a week down and now that the weekend is over and I am a day closer to “slightly less hectic” as opposed to “hectic hectic” with juggling appointments and whatnot, maybe I’ll get a moment to scratch my head. In the meantime we are hitting Day 7 of the 31 Day Challenge 2015 (aka as #31DC2015 for you

    31DC2015 Day 06: Violet – Collide-oscopes

    Already hitting Day 06 of the 31 Day Challenge. The colour is vivacious Violet – so I did some purple layering. All forms of purple and violet in a mashup that incorporates kaleidoscopic shapes – therefore why I like to call this one Collide-oscopes. I know right? I should’ve worked full time in branding. If you haven’t yet noticed, I

    31DC2015 Day 05: Blue – Sea What I Did There?

    Day 5 already of the 31 Day Challenge (aka #31DC2015 if you’re playing along on Insta or Twitter). We’re about half way through the colour section of the challenge. For those of you participating, how are you all going? Hanging in there still given it is the weekend? Today’s prompt is Blue. A lovely colour indeed IMHO, so this one was enjoyable.

    31DC2015 Day 04: Green – Kiwi Fruit

    Speaking of voting against pineapples yesterday, I had already decided on Kiwi Fruits for today’s GREEN theme. And with no plans to make this challenge all about fruit salad, opted for kiwis over pineapples. So this is what we have here. Day 04: A Lean, Green, Kiwi Machine.     Green is one of those colours that I really love

    31DC2015 Day 03: Yellow – Organic

    Day 3 and we move up the rainbow to Yellow. A colour that draws less ire and hatred than Orange does; and for many signifies a mid-life crisis (as the Yellow Ferrari adage goes…). It’s fresh and Summery. I like yellow. But then again, I just like colour. So here it is today combined in a simply illustrated yellow and
