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
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.
- China Glaze – Treblemaker
- Essie – Blanc
- Rimmel London – Bewitch
Essie – Blanc
L’Oréal – 404 Scarlet Vamp
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.
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..)
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 😉
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.
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 😉
Essie – Help me grow (base coat)
Rimmel London salon pro – Rhythm and blues (blå)
Seche Vite (Top coat)
