With this post, I conclude this years 31 day nail polish challenge! I always feel a little bit proud of myself when I finish it, because it really is A LOT of work, and especially towards the end, you just want to be done with it. I think there are some good manicures here – overall, I think I was more pleased with last year’s challenge, but that’s how it goes sometimes.
Here you can see all of the 31 manicures – if you want to take a closer look at one of them, the headings are links to the original posts. I will talk about my personal favorites in the bottom of this post.
After some practice, I’ve really grown to love water decals. I didn’t find them too easy to use at first, but now that I’ve gotten good at using them, I love how quickly they can spruce up a manicure for a very little cost.
For this manicure, I used this sheet from Born Pretty Store, and I guarantee that you will see more manis with this sheet, because there are so many images, and I really love the simplicity of the images.
Exam season is upon me once again. Even though this is my 8th exam season since starting university, it just never gets easy or fun. Leave it to the procrastinator to leave things to the last minute when I could have started months ago -.- .. Maybe I’ll learn some day.
Anyway, summer is here (hence the procrastination and spending time outside instead of locked up with my computer). My nail art still lingers a little bit in spring in terms of color selection. Here is a soft pastel sideways gradient plus roses mani.
Have you noticed how around Valentine’s Day all nail art looks are some shade of pink? Yeah, me too. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pink nail polish as much as the next girl, I just don’t feel like adding to the pile myself, which is why I’ve gone in another direction for a look that is definitely V-day appropriate, but not as traditional.
This one is a little more festive than what I was going for in terms of an everyday look, but I think it would look awesome for a party or something. I DID rock this one to work, so it all depends on your desired level of glam for the day, I suppose.
I did the stripes by applying striping tape over the purple and then sponging the gold glitter on near the cuticle area.
Hey guys – I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I had an exam to take care of this past week, but now I’m back with the first manicure of 2017.
In the midst of all this cold winter weather, I was in the mood for a bright, orange manicure, which is very unusual for me since I’m not a big fan of orange. But anyway, I got an orange polish for christmas, and I bought one myself back in november, and seeing all the oranges together inspired me to do this gradient.
Merry christmas everyone! May you all have a wonderful time with your friends and family!
Throughout the month of December, I’ve made 19 christmas nail art designs – here, you can see them all again if you missed any, and perhaps this will give some inspiration to those of you who still needs the perfect christmas manicure.
