    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.

    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
