    31DC2014 Day 29: The Supernatural

      Day 29 and only two more to go! Wowee! Today is Inspired by the Supernatural. I could have done so many things, and went for a more alien subject – alien skin or an alien substance.     I took the easy way out today. I did this mani not long ago and liked it, but I was feeling sore so this

    31DC2014 Day 28: A Flag – Arr Pirate!

    Ahoy me Hearties! We are nearing the end of the 31 Day Challenge for 2014 with Day 28: Inspired by A Flag. I considered doing the Scottish flag initially but the referendum has passed and it’s not as interesting in terms of nail art as some of the other ideas I had. Soo… I did A PIRATE FLAG! I was

    31DC2014 Day 27: Artwork – Kandinsky

    Being both an Art School / Design grad, I was quite looking forward to the theme of Day 27: Artwork. I pulled a few elements from my artwork of choice and translated them onto my nails. I have chosen to do Kandinsky.   For those of you interested, here’s a brief art history lesson: Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (16 December 1866 – 13

    31DC2014 Day 25: Fashion – BR x Marimekko

    Day 25 is ‘Inspired by Fashion’. Another one I find fun – I like these kinds of creative tasks. I decided to find inspiration from a print. A fun, organic print.   To find my print I had a search and it wasn’t long til I had a few catch my eye. In the end I chose these Banana Republic x Marimekko

    31DC2014 Day 24: A Book – Ubik

    Day 24 and we are almost at the end of this EPIC challenge for another year! Wow. Today’s theme is Inspired by A Book. I chose a sci-fi book by Philip K. Dick called Ubik. It is a classic of his that was written in 1969. The following is a summary of the book from Amazon: Glen Runciter runs a

    31DC2014 Day 23: A Movie… Flowers In The Attic

    Day 23’s theme was Inspired by A Movie. I even decided to colour it a little more like an older film – the kind that were shot in Technicolor. This kind of film print often had boosted saturation with red tonalities so I think I captured that. Even if the movie I chose was from a different era and of a different

    31DC2014 Day 22: Inspired By A Song

    Day 22 and we are powering through the challenge. But ugh! My poor cuticles are starting to feel the pain haha. Anyhoo the theme for today was Inspired by A Song. I did more like ‘inspired by an album’… I couldn’t decide what to do (too many choices) until I got Aphex Twin’s new album Syro and thought hell yeah!

    31DC2014 Day 21: A Colour – Hues of Blues

    Theme for Day 21 is A Colour. I chose to do Hues of Blues. One of my favourite colours is blue. I don’t really have just one favourite, as being an artist/designer, I love too many to decide upon, but if I had to pick one, it would possibly be some shade of blue.   I thought that a layered

    31DC2014 Day 20: Water Marble – Abstract Swirls

    Day 20 and the theme is Water Marble. I didn’t really want it to look like a normal water marble effect, just to do something different to what I have worn lately, so I was going for abstract swirls which were haphazardly carved throughout the water. I decided on a conservative colour scheme – nude, white and blues, which reminds me

    31DC2014 Day 19: Galaxies

    Another favourite subject matter for nail art personally is the Galaxy Nail. So imagine my excitement for today’s challenge theme: GALAXIES. ❤ I have always had a slight obsession fascination with stars, the universe and how it all worked (which even led me to read Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time as a kid). Naturally then it makes sense that

    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
