31 Day Challenge 2015 Day 1: Red

31 Day Challenge 2015 Day 1: Red

Traditionally the 31 Day Challenge happens in September – this is when everyone else did it. I too did it, after a fashion. I more or less kept up with the actual nail designing from day to day – I just didn’t manage to post any blogs on the subject. I’ve done too much lovely work to hide it all away though, so as of today I’m having my only little 31DC2015. I hope you don’t mind!

Born Pretty Store Stamping

I’m on a bit of a stamping kick lately. I’ve bought so many stamping plates over the last several months that I’m not sure how I’ll ever get through them all! One brand I’d never tried before until recently is Born Pretty Store. Their prices are crazy cheap and I was a bit iffy about whether the quality of their plates would be any good. Well this just in: they’re FAB.

Spooky Stamping

Spooky Stamping

It has been a while since I posted! I’ve been moving house, and then not having any space to paint or photograph nails, and there has been all kinds of other boring and stressful stuff. But enough about me, let’s get back to some nails!

I painted this gorgeous gradient as a base for She Sells Seashells graveyard stencils, but they somehow got mislaid in the move. ­čśŽ Instead I used them as a base for some stamping with a new MoYou London Gothic plate – this one is No. 07. How fab (and different) is this cobweb?

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 7: Black & White

I don’t think I can overstate how much of a pain in the ass this design was. It might look cool, but it’s EVIL. ┬áThese nails were a NIGHTMARE.

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 5: Blue Nails

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 5: Blue Nails

This has to be one of my favourite designs of late. I can’t claim any credit for it – I spotted the idea on Bite No More the other day and knew it would be perfect for this prompt!

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 1: Red Nails

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 1: Red Nails

So I decided that I had to give it a go. Since it was the 31 Day Challenge that started me blogging this time last year I couldn’t bear to not at least try to keep up with the challenge this year. We’ll see how I do!

Red nails. In true 31DC fashion, I’m not at all convinced by this design.

31 Day Challenge Day 4: Green – Marbling

31 Day Challenge Day 4: Green – Marbling

I have various green polishes in different shades but none of them really inspired me today. Then I thought – how about if I just put them all on? I put down a base of Models Own Banana Split and dabbed all my colours in little blocks using a sponge.
