    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

    31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter – Glitterati

    Glitter! Like a disco ball for the fingers. Theme for Day 17 of the challenge. I noticed that I haven’t used much pink so far, and since it’s not my most loved colour, it’s a colour that does get a little neglected on my nails. So in order to show some love for all colours in the spectrum, today’s effort

    31DC2014 Day 16: Geometric

    Aah, one of my favourite themes has to be Geometric. Considering I’m a designer, it’s probably not that hard for anyone to guess why… I had grand plans to do something complex, but just didn’t have the time or energy today so I’ve gone for a simple segmented tape-and-shape mani with exposed nude nail lines.   I was going to do

    31DC2014 Day 15: Delicate Print

    As we hit Day 15, we’re heading into the sub-section that I think contains my more favoured challenge themes; not only of the Styles chapter, but of the whole 31 Day Challenge. For the DELICATE PRINT theme I decided the ‘lace doilies’ look was relatively fun. Plus I wanted to use a nude polish in this so far highly colourful

    31DC2014 Day 14: Flowers

    Flowers. A girl’s best friend, and the theme for Day 14. We have nearly hit half way through the 2014 31 Day Challenge and I am going to need a break after this one haha. So much polish, so little time, right? Today’s effort is a simple one. The medium-orange base is from the awesome OPI Brazil collection – Where

    31DC2014 Day 13: Animal Print – Funky Alligator

    I call this one the Funky Alligator. Sounds like a terrible dance that the generic mobile DJ’s might play at weddings and lame events such as those you might see in an Adam Sandler movie, huh? Another quickie for Day 13’s theme of ANIMAL PRINT. I didn’t have my darker greens at hand, so consider this the colour of an

    31DC2014 Day 12: Stripes

    Day 12 of the challenge is STRIPES. So here we have a simple vertical stripe. I really just felt like wearing some classic stripes today. Even if they do almost look a little Beetlejuice-y… I should have done a Beetlejuice feature nail – but oh, the time. Created with striping tape, Sally Hansen White On and Rimmel Aye, Aye Sailor –

    31DC2014 Day 11: Polka Dots

    Feeling dotty? Today is Polka Dot day. Are we already on Day 11? Sheesh. I’m getting in early today. Five fingers and five different pastel colours for this dotticure on a naked base. I used the Ulta3 pastel minis set for these. I was intending to make them matte, but got distracted by the 15 other things I was doing
