Long time, no Post

Hello Everyone!

I know, it's been way too long since I updated. Unfortunately I've had so much going on with work, and last weekend I had really planned on doing a lot of work on this blog, but then this happened:

Day 31 31 DC - Recreate a Mani


So sorry this post is late, and especially on the last day :( Way to go out with a bang.. not. Unfortunately life got in the way and I had to attend a wake yesterday and I just didn't have time to finish.

I want to say before we finish that I'm very proud of myself and everyone else that participated for all the hard work we did. It's hard coming up with 30 different manis in as many days. I feel like I've learned a lot from other bloggers in the past 30 days, and gotten a lot of new ideas for manis for sure.

I also want to thank everyone that has commented or viewed my blog throughout this challenge as well. It means the world to me, and there's nothing more exciting than getting a new comment on something I've worked hard on. I also appreciate my new followers :)

So today's mani comes from Day 10 of the Challenge, and it was done by Melissa of My Nail Journey. You can see the original here. And here's how mine turned out!

Day 30 31 DC - Your Favorite Nail Art Technique

Hi All!

Second to last post of this challenge!! I can't believe it's almost over.

So today's prompt is to use your favorite nail art technique. I was torn between dotting tools and tape manis. I've really grown to love tape manis! It definitely used to be stamping but I love using my dotting tools so much more lately, so I decided to go with something simple using those.

Day 29 31 DC - Inspired by a Blogger


Here we are in the final stages of the challenge. Even though I fell behind some days, I'm really proud that I've made it this far!

Today's post is in honor of a blogger that first got me into nail art. I read her blog daily, and I'm always in awe of her art skills. She's a waaaay better stamper than me :) If you don't already read her blog, you should. Like, right now :) Click on over to see the awesomeness that is Lacquer or Leave Her.

Awhile back, she posted a really neat tutorial for double stamping, which you can see here.

So I followed her tutorial, and here's how mine turned out.

Day 28 31 DC - Inspired by Your Favorite Color

Hi Again :)

All caught up. *whew*

So, for today's prompt we are doing manis inspired by our favorite colors, which by now I think it's pretty clear that mine is blue. So, here's what I came up with.

Day 27 31 DC - Inspired by Me

Hi everyone!

Here we are again, catching up!

So today's mani is supposed to be inspired by me. I had trouble thinking about what that meant, so I decided to look through my book of stamps and pick out ones that symbolize different aspects of my life, and stamp over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

Day 26 31 DC - Inspired by Your Country

Hi Everyone!

Running behind again. :( So sorry, I really had hoped this past weekend to get the whole rest of the challenge done, but it didn't work out that way. I wasn't feeling well, and things got shoved to the side.

Anyways, this post's inspiration was the United States, and I didn't wanna just do a flag. So, I decided to pick out things that are wholeheartedly American and go from there.
