31 Day Challenge - Day 29-31 Roundup

With a large sigh of relief, the 31 Day Challenge wrapped up earlier this week! I finished!

I won't say there weren't a few days where I thought I might sneakily skip the prompt or stop altogether, but then I would see other people start posting and I'd head off in search of inspiration again. 

Day 29: Inspired by the Supernatural

31 Day Challenge Inspired by the Supernatural

I was feeling completely uninspired by this prompt. I really struggled with ideas. I didn't want to do anything to Halloween-y, I never watched the TV series Supernatural, and with the next two prompts being to recreate someone elses nails I wanted to be somewhat original.

I ended up with a midnight graveyard scene with some unidentified shadowy beings hanging around. I'm mildly happy with how they turned out but I was let down by my matte top coat shrinking within minutes of application. Grrr!!

Day 30: Inspired by a Tutorial

31 Day Challenge Inspired by a Tutorial

I usually prefer pictorial over video tutorials, however I took to Youtube for this mani inspired by the lovely Tammy aka @ohmygoshpolish. I like that she keeps her videos short and easy to follow - nothing more annoying than fast forwarding through 5 minutes of talking through applying a base colour. 

Anyway I think this is a really cool look - I love dots on dots and the mix of dakrs and brights. I used two of the Maybelline Bleached Neons and my go-to mega dark blue Essie Bobbing for Baubles

Day 31: Honour Nails You Love

31 Day Challenge Honour Nails you Love

It took me a long time to decide on what I'd do for this prompt. There are so many incredibly talented nail bloggers ad nail artists that narrowing it down to one thing to recreate was quite a task! I eventually remembered my Pinterest boards and spotted this dotted pattern from Manicurity that I fell in love with many months ago. 

In the end I chose this design simply because this is something I could see myself wearing. It's fun to push yourself and come up with out there nail art, but I always appreciate a super-wearable look that will still catch the eye.

Congratulations to everyone that made it through this year!
