Day 30 of the 30 Day Challenge: A tutorial

September 30th, 2012 (No Comments)

It’s the last day of the challenge! I’m kind of glad that it’s coming to and end actually as my nails really need a bit of a rest, but I have enjoyed having to come up with something new every day! Today’s theme is ‘a tutorial’ so I have decided to create a tutorial about […]

Day 29 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by the supernatural

September 29th, 2012 (1 Comment)

I can’t believe that this is the second last post of the challenge! This month has gone so fast, it’s mad. Today’s theme is ‘inspired by the supernatural’ and again I found this one to be a little vague. I had images of ghosts, zombies and Superman in my head but while rifling through my […]

Day 28 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by a flag

September 29th, 2012 (No Comments)

Yes yes, I know. Bad blogger Laura for not posting this yesterday. Jack and I ended up going to the cinema last night to watch Looper so I didn’t have time to post. The theme yesterday was ‘inspired by a flag’ so I’m sure most of can guess which flag I would immediately choose. I […]

Day 27 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by artwork

September 27th, 2012 (1 Comment)

I am so chuffed with this manicure. Sunflowers are my favourite flower EVER and when I thought of artwork, the first thing that came into my head was the series of sunflower painting by Van Gogh and I knew that was what I had to paint on my nails. I started by painting a base […]

Day 26 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by a pattern

September 26th, 2012 (2 Comments)

Morning campers! I am so tired today it is not even real. I have one of those confusing occurrences with my alarm this morning where you are sure you put it on snooze but apparently you turned it off. I still made the train on time though so no matter. Today’s theme is ‘inspired by […]

Day 25 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by fashion

September 25th, 2012 (1 Comment)

The finish line is nearly in sight. I’m not going to lie…I can’t wait for it to be over. My creativity is starting to run thin. Today’s theme is ‘inspired by fashion’ and I did think about copying a dress print from London Fashion Week that has just gone but then I remembered that I […]

Day 24 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by a book

September 24th, 2012 (1 Comment)

There was only ever going to be one book (or series of books) I chose for today. I’ve been a fan of the Harry Potter books for more than ten years now and it was so much fun doing a tribute to them on my nails! I wanted to keep it relatively simple, but still […]

Day 23 of 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by a movie

September 23rd, 2012 (No Comments)

I am so absolutely chuffed with this manicure. It’s my first proper freehand paint! Choosing a film was pretty tough, but Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory has been on the TV several times recently (the new one and the old one) so I thought I would do a tribute to that film. Personally, I […]

Day 22 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by a song

September 22nd, 2012 (No Comments)

This week is definitely going to be a tough week… Week 1 was so easy when I just had to think about using red or blue or something. But ‘Inspired by a song’? Really?! I was a bit worried about this one, but when my new Cheeky plates arrived this week gone I knew exactly […]

Day 21 of the 30 Day Challenge: Inspired by a colour

September 21st, 2012 (No Comments)

After the disaster that was the water marble nails, I give you one of the prettiest manicures I have ever done… if I may say so myself! Today’s theme is ‘inspired by a colour’ and as this is a bit vague I decided to use a manicure using my favourite colour of something that color. […]
