31DC2016: Day 31 Recreate Your Favourite

While I wasn't exactly on schedule for every post I did manage to get all 31 nail art designs finished in 31 days! :) 

March 30, 2016

31DC2016: Day 30 Inspired by a TUTORIAL

This design has been on my list for a while now... I followed the Radiant Orchid tutorial by Wondrously Polished

31DC2016: Day 29 Inspired by the SUPERNATURAL

My least favourite prompt. So much so I wanted to skip it. Instead I found inspiration (and copied it exactly) from Sammy at the Nailasaurus

March 28, 2016

31DC2016: Day 28 Inspired by a FLAG

The last time I did this 31 day challenge I was inspired by the flag of my home province: Newfoundland & Labrador, more specifically the unofficial flag of Labrador. 

Since then I have moved from Newfoundland & Labrador to Nova Scotia, and now I'm currently living across the country in Alberta! (This country really is huge)

31DC2016: Day 27 Inspired by ARTWORK

Another one of my favourite prompts because it leaves so much variability, and I love drawing inspiration from other artists

March 26, 2016

31DC2016: Day 26 Inspired by a PATTERN

Paisley Print! My new favourite freehand design... keep reading to find out how I created the look

31DC2016: Day 25 Inspired by FASHION

I love this prompt because it gives me a chance to brush up on all the latest in high-fashion. I browse recent fashion shows, red carpet events etc. This time around I was reminded of the stunning dress worn by Jennifer Lawrence at the 2016 Oscars ceremony...

31DC2016: Day 24 Inspired by a BOOK

Super-indelible-never-come-off-'till-you're-dead-or-maybe-even-later colouring markers...

March 23, 2016

31DC2016: Day 23 Inspired by a MOVIE

Day 23 is always a fun challenge: Can you guess which upcoming movie I was inspired by?

31DC2016: Day 21 Inspired by a COLOR

What better way to kick off spring than with China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy <3

March 20, 2016

31DC2016: Day 20 Water Marbled

This look isn't so much water marbled as it is "dry" marbled. I used the dry marbling technique to create this look...

31DC2016: Day 19 Galaxies

Galaxy nail art is one of my favourite designs, its so easy to recreate and turns out a little different each time...

March 18, 2016

31DC2016: Day 18 Half Moons

Did you know that the Half-moon manicure has been a popular nail trend dating back to the 1920's? It was even featured in cosmopolitan magazine back in 1936. I love this classic nail design!

31DC2016: Day 17 Glitter

I kept things simple for today's challenge. A plain color-changing glitter. 

March 16, 2016

31DC2016: Day 16 Tribal Print

When you don't have the time to do an intricate free-hand tribal print like you had originally planned... the new Bundle Monster plate BM-XL202 collab plate with Chit Chat Nails is the PERFECT alternative!

March 15, 2016

31DC2016: Day 15 Delicate Print

Delicate print... always open for interpretation :) 

March 14, 2016

31DC2016: Day 14 Flowers

I was looking for an excuse to combo these two piCture pOlish shades together! :) 

March 13, 2016

31DC2016: Day 13 Animal Print

Another one of my favourite challenge days... Animal Print (decisions... decisions...)

March 12, 2016

31DC2016: Day 12 Stripes

This look didn't turn out exactly as I had imagined it, but it turned out to be pretty badass.

March 11, 2016

31DC2016: Day 11 Polka Dots

Out of the "colors" portion of the 31 Day Challenge, and on to the "Patterns".. first up, Polka Dots! 

March 10, 2016

31DC2016: Day 10 Gradient Nails

Gradient nail art... personally I always find that this simple nail art technique gives the most bang for your buck. It always spruces up what would have been a fairly simple (and sometimes boring) manicure with the least amount of effort.

31DC2016: Day 9 Rainbow Nails

As tribute to a lazy Saturday, this manicure is from the vault (in case you were wondering how my nails grew overnight)

March 4, 2016

31DC2016: Day 4 Green Nails

This nail art challenge is giving me a chance to try out a few new shades from OPI...
