31DC2014 - Day 31 - Honour Nails You Love

Hey everyone!


-Deep, collective, amazing sigh-

So happy. So fun. Sort of stressful?

Anyways! I am going to save a reflective post for tomorrow.. not today! One more post.. honour nails you love. Easy. These nails have gorgeous colours, and polka dots. And.. they are matte.. weird, for me, but these are sososososo lovely!

Scope them HERE.

I used:
Color Club High Society
OPI My Vampire Is Buff
China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer
China Glaze Bottoms Up
Essie Matte About You

I do apologize for the tip wear.. one day of work just destroys mattified nails, apparently. Who knew?! I wish I had used a slightly light shade for the base, but hey - you win some, you lose some, and this is mostly a win. So pretty!

Well, see you all tomorrow (hopefully) for a nice reflective post. Huge round of applause to all those that gave the 31 Day Challenge a go for 2014. You're all amazing!

31DC2014 - Day 30 - Inspired By A Tutorial

Hey there!

Yesss! All caught up!

I kind of love me some mrcandiipants nail posts.. and I quite like her vids as well. I used one of her vides to create this very simple, yet amazing mani.

 I used:

OPI My Vampire Is Buff
Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
Color Club High Society

Love. So simple, but the colours are gorgeous and I did have many gals comment on these gems. I always find that compliments = effective nail art. Win!

31DC2014 - Day 29 - Inspired By The Supernatural


This prompt of the #31DC2014 kills me. My amazing bff gave me some rad ideas, but I honestly could just do any of them to save my life. I was finally like 'what is a cheapy, easy bit of nail art that I could label as 'supernatural'..'

The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Ehh... Just let this slide, ok?

I used:
FxFS White Matter &

31DC2014 - Day 28 - Inspired By A Flag

Hello again!

For this one.. I went to my "roots".. and.. a place that I would love to visit! My bff, her sister, and their mother (who happens to come from this flag place) went there this past summer.. and just looking at the photos is magical! I can live vicariously through their trek, until I can maybe get myself there some time.

It is supposed to look German-flag-esque.. though I feel a little bad that I didn't have a more golden yellow. I had the perfect one in mind, but I might have given that one to my ma. Oops! Thought that counts?

I used FxFS Flashy
FxFS Dark Matter
Sinful Colors Unicorn

31DC2014 - Day 27 - Inspired By Artwork

Hey again..

I, as I almost always do, took to pinterest for this prompt of the #31DC2014.. and came across THIS gem. Did it translate to nail art very well.. not for me.. but.. it is kind of neat? And please do not be too harsh on me for the horrendous "birds", they really are not my forte.

I used:

FxFS White Matter
FxFS Dark Matter
China Glaze X-Ta-Sea
China Glaze Dune Our Thing

yeeah.. again.. not the best translation into nail art (for my skillz), but I am not completely upset about them.

31DC2014 - Day 26 - Inspired By A Pattern

Hey everyone!

Sorry I got behind on posts here.. believe it or not, I did have my nails painted everyday for these prompts.. I honestly lost track of days, and of what I had to edit photo-wise.. today while I was at work I was like 'wait.. it is September 30th.. uhhh.. waaat?' So yeah. A small handful of posts coming your way right meow!!

For my #31DC2014 inspired by a pattern nails, I took to one of my fave sites: pinterest.. and found THIS.. simple.. green.. effective.

I used:

China Glaze White On White
Essie Mojito Madness
Lime Crime Pastelchio
FxFS Radioactive

Again, simple, fun.. effective!

31DC2014 - Day 25 - Inspired By Fashion

Hey everyone!

So for this prompt in the #31DC2014, it is inspired by fashion.. and I went with the fashion of the amazing Dr. Mindy Lahari from The Mindy Project.. I love pretty much everything she wears, so why not pay homage to that?

I went with this pattern that she was wearing on the season 3 premiere episode.. to anyone that watches that show -- amazing season premiere, I honestly laughed my way through the whole thing. Just exquisite!

I used:

FxFS Dark Matter
China Glaze White On White
Zoya Pippa

That is all for today -- see you again tomorrow!!
