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 you love. It’s so open ended and there is so much fantastic nail art out there so it can be quite hard to pick just one. A bit of a trim and prepping first gave time for ideas to marinate. I do love negative space manis and finally (hours later) settled on the following few and combined them in a slightly different way. It is ‘inspired by’ after all. So these are my final nails in this Challenge. Better red than dead, right?




These are some of the manis that I based today’s nails on.

Yay! The end is nigh, the end is nigh! For all those still playing along at home, well done and holy shitballs Sherlock – WE MADE IT! You all deserve a medal or a box of polish and a break. Or something. I mean despite all odds, if you’ve made it this far, your next step is World Domination. And this has been playing in my head all day. Yes, I’m a bit affected (in a good way), regardless of all the extra polish fumes…

And if you can’t play the vid, just hum the tune in your head.

How did you all end up by day 31? Did you have any favourite manis? (Yours, mine or others)

It’s been real. Exhausting fun. Aside from reclaiming one’s life back haha, the bonus is I have ended up with an even longer list of blogs and sites to come back and visit. Likewise, I hope you’ll all stick around or pop back for a visit. You’ll find me mostly here or on Instagram – or BlogLovin’ (and hopefully a bit more on YouTube when I have the time, energy & desire. It’s a work in progress 😉 ).

    Great negative space look! I agree that its hard to pick who to be inspired by and that it’s been a bit overwhelming this month trying to squeeze in all the manis.
    Congrats on completing it!

      Thank you Zara! I know there is so much inspiration. I have no idea how some were managing double challenges haha, it was fun, but I’m glad to get back to a more normal pace of existence at least for the time being. 😜
