31 Day Challenge – Day 22

Before I start this post I’d just like to show you all the state of my nails at the moment. 

I got to a stage where my nails were really long, you can see them at their longest on the water marble post, and although I adored them they were too impractical for me. I’m sure those of you with touch screen phones understand what I’m saying, I was finding it so hard to even type let alone do anything else because I was too afraid of breaking my nails. 

So I had to make the heart breaking decision to cut them 😦 BUT I also love my short nails and short nails are very in fashion at the moment, seen on celebrities the likes of Megan Fox, Anne Hathaway and Kim Kardashian! I had to trim them again today because a couple of my nails had grown super long again, which you can see on the picture below..

P.S. Excuse the state of my hands and nails and the teenie pictures, I had to take these on my phone 😦

Once cut, filed and pampered with some cuticle oil my nails now look like this. Much better!

ANYWAY, back to the challenge!


There were so many songs I could’ve chosen for this, but eventually I narrowed it down to a song and a line from a song! The song is Nina Simone’s ‘Feeling Good’ such a classic song and such amazing lyrics from a very talented lady! You can listen to the song (and you should listen to it) here.

I picked out on one line in particular ‘Birds flying high, you know how I feel.’

Now I did want this look to be more sophisticated, in keeping with the style of the song, but I forgot my thin brush so this was the best I could do, it kind of looks like a bird right?

I used a base coat of Technic ‘Moonlit Jade’ and using cling film I dabbed on some Miss Sporty ‘Blue Bath’ and then painted on my bird design in black acrylic paint.

I might redo this challenge, but I needed something to post for you guys and I was bored and thought I’d give it a go! what do you think?!
