31DC2016Weekly 31: Honour nails you ♥

The 31DCWeekly is over today. Even though this was spread over a couple of months, it really did seem to fly by! This was my first nail art challenge ever, and it was so much fun. The prompt for the last day of the challenge is to recreate someone else’s manicure, inspired either by a… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 31: Honour nails you ♥

31DC2016Weekly 30: Inspired by a tutorial

Hello, folks! I’ve been terribly irregular with my blog posts this past month, and I apologize! I meant to write a special post for the half-year anniversary of this blog on September 22 (yay, I made it to six months!), but the day flew by and I just did not have the time… I will… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 30: Inspired by a tutorial

31DC2016Weekly 29: Inspired by the supernatural

I really struggled with the supernatural prompt, despite being into all things supernatural. This was a last-minute idea, but some days you just have to move forward. This is my alien mani. The base colour is three coats of Revlon in Holographic Pearls. I stamped a couple of UFOs on the ring finger with Sally… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 29: Inspired by the supernatural

31DC2016Weekly 28: Inspired by a flag

Only three more weeks left of the 31DC Weekly! It sure has flown by; I can’t imagine how quickly it must pass for those doing the daily version… For the flag prompt, I really wanted to go with the colours of the flag of my country, which are red and green. It was rather challenging… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 28: Inspired by a flag

31DC2016Weekly 27: Inspired by artwork

This was a very difficult challenge for me. I’ve been going through a bit of a slump regarding nail art over the last couple of days and have been procrastinating on doing this one. I accidentally happened to stumble upon a picture I really liked (shown as the background below), but I had a ridiculously… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 27: Inspired by artwork

31DC2016Weekly 26: Inspired by a pattern

We’re almost at the end of the 31DC weekly! The prompt for this week was a pattern. Making this a week of patterns all around, I went with an argyle print for this one and plaid for the ABC Challenge. I ended up doing a skittles mani: These three are probably my most frequently-worn colours… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 26: Inspired by a pattern

31DC2016Weekly 25: Inspired by fashion

The prompt for this week is “inspired by fashion” and the first thought that jumped into my mind was to do a manicure based on one of the many gorgeous outfits Eva Green’s character in Penny Dreadful wears. Despite its shortcomings, I rather like the show, and I spend a sizeable portion of my time… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 25: Inspired by fashion

31DC2016Weekly 24: Inspired by a book

“People see what they wish to see. And in most cases, what they are told that they see.” — Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus Today’s prompt (inspired by a book) is one I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for for a while now (a couple of months!). Why didn’t I just go ahead and do it earlier,… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 24: Inspired by a book

31DC2016Weekly 23: Inspired by a movie

Last month, we went to a Cirque du Soleil show called Toruk, based on James Cameron’s movie, Avatar (and it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!). I wanted to do this manicure for the show, but could not manage the time. So, for this week’s 31DC inspiration (movie), I chose Avatar. I went the Pandora-at-night route because I think… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 23: Inspired by a movie

31DC2016Weekly 22: Inspired by a song

This week’s prompt for the 31DC is “inspired by a song” & this sure was challenging! I eventually decided to go with the song 99 Luftballons by Nena (also released in English as 99 Red Balloons), which was relatively easy to translate onto nails. I started out with the “sky” background on all nails –… Continue reading 31DC2016Weekly 22: Inspired by a song
