31 day nail polish challenge: Wrap Up

I finally made it all the way around the 31 day nail polish challenge! And it only took me, what, 9 months? Anyways, that’s not important! If you weren’t around for the beginning of the challenge (and the blog), here you can see all of the days! If you want to read the original posts I’ll leave the links down below. Continue reading

31 day nail polish challenge: Day 30 + 31: Tutorial + Honor nails you love

It felt right for me to combine the last two days of the challenge because the nail art I wanted to honor was also a tutorial by the YouTuber Packapunchpolish and I knew from the moment I saw it that I’d have to do that!

I’m still trying to figure out how to properly watermarble – I’m not quite all the way there yet, but don’t they say that practice makes perfect? I’ve certainly gotten better at the other techniques the more I’ve practised them.

Gradient and watermarblePolishes used:

  • China Glaze – Treblemaker
  • Essie – Blanc
  • Rimmel London – Bewitch

31 day nail art challenge: Day 29: Inspired by the supernatural

I don’t know if this is inspired by ‘supernatural’ per se, but it definitely looks scary – I’m going to a birthday tomorrow – maybe it’s not the most suited manicure 😀supernatural 2

It is supposed to look like I’ve been scratching at a wall or the inside of a coffin or something like that..supernatural 3

Polishes used: 

Essie – Blanc

L’Oréal – 404 Scarlet Vamp

31 day nail polish challenge: day 28: Inspired by a flag

Yeah, so I wasn’t just inspired by ONE flag for this challenge day, but 5! I chose to do the 5 flags for the 5 nordic countries: Iceland, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark (from thumb to pinky).

I cannot BELIEVE how straight these lines are! That, I did not expect! Yes, they could be straighter, but I expected them to WAY more wobbly than they are! I did this on my dominant hand as well and they’re actually also pretty straight – what just happened there??

I used Essie’s Blanc and L’Oréal’s Banana Pop (for the Swedish flag) as my base colors and then I used generic stripers in red and blue.

31 day nail polish challenge: Day 27: Inspired by artwork

I found this image through a Google search, and for some reason it makes me happy to look at. Then it is also a plus that I could really see the potential for a manicure in here as well, so of course this photo had to inspire day 27 of the challenge! (Not many days left now..)

Here is what I got out of it – if you wanna see how I did it, check out the video down below!IMG_14711

The video is a bit narrow – I hadn’t realized until after I’d finished filming that I’d turned the camera the wrong way, but I still wanted to share it with you guys, so bear with me 😉

31 day nail polish challenge: Day 26: Inspired by a pattern

I found this picture on Pinterest and my manicure for day 26 was inspired by this.

Thank God it is only supposed to be ‘inspired by’ and not ‘recreate’, because it doesn’t look quite as close to the inspiration as I had hoped, but it still looks pretty neat.

WP_20150425_023My base color is by Technic and it is called Mr Blue Sky. The stripes are just a generic blue, metallic striper that doesn’t have a name. The glitter pieces are Essie’s A Stroke of Brilliance.

31 day nail polish challenge: day 25: inspired by fashion

Right now, we’re seeing lace everywhere!

I myself really like lace! My favorite dress right now looks very similar to the white one above. What gave me the inspiration for this particular manicure was my new bra that I showed you in my previous post:

Here is what I came up with:

Lace is actually really hard to do freehand but I did the best I could 😉

Polishes used;

Essie – Help me grow (base coat)

Rimmel London salon pro – Rhythm and blues (blå)

Seche Vite (Top coat)
