Woohoo! I just passed a man wearing an A-board and shouting “The End is nigh! The End is nigh!”
Wait, whaaat? He’s right, it is already here. In the form of this final challenge day installment for Day 31: Honor Nails You Love. I had a bunch of ideas, cos’ who can pick just one, right? So many talented artists out there.
Annoyingly my intermittent internet connection has been giving me grief all week, so it curtailed my plans (thus the late posting). In the end I had to go with the flow and based it on elements from a couple of Japanese style nails (Tokyo artist), but more colour-rich. And interpretive. And I didn’t use all gel polish. But I did opt for pointed tips now that I get to keep it all on for more than 24 hours. I’ll aim to do this challenge again soon when I’ve sorted out my interwebs, gah.
I ended up with a bit of a mash-up of doodled DNA-esque strands, a splash of gradient and a range of accented detail spanning the blingy, the metallic and the pearlescent. Et voilà !
Oh and excuse the state of my poor, dried out hands.
Like I was saying yesterday, right now my perionychium, eponychium and finger-skin be all like:
And right about now, my prunish hands have booked a week in Maui and are going on a bit of an acetone-free vaycay.
So anyhoo, I think that it was a fairly good, epic effort. As time consuming as it was (and particularly whilst I’m recovering). Thanks to all for visiting, commenting, participating and making it extra fun. (Also to Cathy @ More Nail Polish for the InLinkz for all those playing at home). What have been your favourite manis from this year’s challenge? Your own or others’.

Done! A few days late but I missed the first few days so had a bit more to do at the end. It was tiring but also heaps of fun.
My favourite mani that I did… so tough to choose! I think the Treasure Island pirate ones, I love nails that tell a story.
My favourite nails of yours were the “inspired by a movie” ones. I love the vintage feel of them.
