31DC2017: Day 29 Inspired by the Supernatural

I find the supernatural prompt really hard to do, because I always want to do halloween nails, but that doesn’t necessarily mean supernatural, so I always struggle a little bit to come up with an idea for today’s prompt. This year, my choice fell on ghosts.

31DC2017: Day 28 Inspired by a Flag

For this past year I’ve been living in the southern part of Denmark, not too far from the Danish-German border, so Germans and the german language have become a part of my everyday life, so it seemed like the obvious choice to pay tribute to our neighbours for the flag prompt of the challenge.

I tried a technique I’ve never done before for this mani – a fan brush gradient – and I must say that the result is amazing! I got an unintentional sunset vibe with this because of the colors in the flag. I didn’t really get the colors properly blocked on my pinky, but I’ll definitely be using this technique again!

31DC2017: Day 27 Inspired by Artwork

This year, I wasn’t inspired by a specific piece of art like previous years, but rather by a style – graffiti!

31DC2017: Day 26 Inspired by a Pattern

I went to Google and searched ‘pattern’ to find the inspiration for today’s nails. There were a lot of really good options, but ultimately, I settled on this pattern because I remembered that I had these glitters in my drawer so that I could do it as glitter placement. I thought about filling the entire nail, but I doubt I would have had the patience for that!

31DC2017: Day 25 Inspired by Fashion

I work for a webshop that sells children’s clothes, so I see a lot of that everyday. That’s why it’s only natural that I found my fashion inspiration there. I was inspired by these cute little grey shoes with silver dots on them.

31DC2017: Day 24 Inspired by a Book

This year, I was not inspired by a single book for day 24, but rather by an entire genre. I’ve been really into reading LGBT books for quite a few months now because they have a different set of issues than the books I usually read (mainly chick-lit). So I am dedicating this mani to all of the amazing books that I have read, and to all the ones I will be reading as I get through my to-read pile on Goodreads.

I did these hearts as nail decals on my silicone mat. I cut a heart out in regular scotch tape and created these rainbow colored hearts.

31DC2017: Day 23 Inspired by a Movie

Surprisingly, I was really struggling to come up with an idea for this prompt.. In the end, I tried to recreate the bleeding strawberries in the movie Across the Universe. I did them with sharpies that I ‘dissolved’ with isopropyl alcohol which gave them this washed out look.
