31 Day Challenge – Day 23 and 24

I have to admit to you guys that I’ve really been putting off doing these days of the challenge because I find it really hard to think of inspiration for this stuff. I apologize for the lack of posts as well, I’ve been having a hard time with some personal issues lately not to mention uni coursework, but I’m going to try and blog my way through it from now on.

31 Day Challenge – Day 21

The first of the ‘Inspired by..’ days. Some of these are really tough, especially this one ‘Inspired by a Colour’.

I kind of just assumed that I can do anything for this, so I was inspired by the neon theme which seems to be occurring a lot in manicures at the moment.

The polish I used is a Colour Unlimited un-named polish, but its a neon coral type colour which doesn’t really show on these photos. After 2 coats I painted a houndstooth pattern using black acrylic paint.

My first attempt at houndstooth and using acrylic paint and I’m pretty pleased with it, I think I just need some more practice!

31 Day Challenge – Day 12 and 13

Happy Easter everyone! I’ve been super super busy recently and I really do apologise for the lack of posts over the past week ­čśŽ

Anyway, on to the nails!

Day 12 – STRIPES!

This manicure was a bit rushed so its quite messy, but overall I’m happy with it and I might have to redo it properly at some point. Its a pastel watercolour nail with black chevrons/stripes over the top!

31 Day Challenge – Day 9

RAINBOW!

So as I’ve already done a rainbow manicure for the Pre Spring Challenge here, I decided that I’d try something a bit different with this rainbow mani and at the same time show you one of my new purchases!

This is a really simple glitter gradient using my new Technic polish – Carnival!

31 Day Challenge – Day 8

METALLIC!

I have so many metallic polishes it was hard to chose which one to use for this mani, but in the end I decided to use my Loreal Paris Varnish in ‘Valiant’ for a bit of a twist!

I was going to do a boring old metallic nail with black pattern on top but instead I decided on a grungy acid wash design!

31 Day Challenge – Day 3

Okay everyone before I start I’d like to apologise for my absence this weekend, its been a bit hectic and along with university deadlines I’ve been a bit under pressure!

Now for the manicure..

YELLOW!

Today’s theme is yellow, and I love yellow, its so bright and reminds me of the sun. Perfect!

So I couldn’t think of things to do then I settled for a fishtail manicure, because I haven’t posted one yet ­čÖé

Glittery and Geometric!

So I changed my nails fairly quickly after the Napkin Mani because I got bored of them really quickly and I just did a quick and simple mani using my favourite glitter! Its a gorgeous pink and silver combo from Xplode its not named unfortunately, but its pretty unique so its easy to spot. This is three coats of the glitter before the completed manicure.

Napkin Nails!

I stumbled across this idea when watching Naio Nails UK’s acrylic nails tutorial which you can see here. I figured that if you could do that with acrylic nails, why not try it on regular nails!

I was in Hobby Craft and found these really cute gingham napkins on 3-for-2 so I bought purple, black and red and I thought I’d try the purple first!

Foil!

Had this idea for a long time, but was never sure if it would work, so I thought I’d give it a try and it’s turned out really great!

(This is real foil! no fancy nail foil or anything, just plain old tin foil!)

5, 6, 7, 8!

So I haven’t actually been able to get on to my laptop for 2 days, long story, but don’t worry, this is good news for you lucky people because you get 4 manicures for the price of 1!

Pre Spring Challenge Updates

Although the challenge is over now, what a great challenge it has been with so much inspiration from so many bloggers, I started late and therefore I am going to carry on, and try and post a couple of challenges each day!

I have managed to complete the next 4 days of the challenge in 1 day! It’s definitely been a long day!

Day 5 – Sky
