Here is the summary for the 31 Day Challenge. I've marked my favorites with a heart ♥, though I have to say my number 1 is Day 12: Stripes!
Last day of the challenge! These nails are inspired by Top Coat It's Spring Flower manicure. Not very winter-y, but I love the design. I decided to go for a watermelon color scheme. Kleancolor Bikini Green Sinful Colors Innocent, Snow Me White Mattese Pink Royale
I love how these turned out, especially the little snowman! I think they're perfect for the Christmas and winter season. I followed Simply Rins tutorial. When I first saw it I thought it would be really complicated to do, but it wasn't too bad. For the night sky I used China Glaze Eyes Like Sapphires,… Continue reading 31 Day Challenge 2013: Inspired by a Tutorial
Fairies! I tried to draw them as best I could, but I don't know if you'd be able to tell they're fairies without knowing. The pink is Sinful Colors Starfish. For the gold, I used Funky Fingers Golden Grace with Maybelline Color Show Gold's Night Out on top - both beautiful gold glitters.

I'm trying Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat, and it takes… Continue reading 31 Day Challenge 2013: Inspired by Fashion
My nails for today's challenge aren't inspired by one specific book, but Agatha Christie books in general. I love mystery, and lately I've been watching a ton of Poirot and Marple episodes, so I thought this would be a great way to represent them on my nails. Poirot's Moustache (thumb & middle) Sinful Colors Athens… Continue reading 31 Day Challenge 2013: Inspired by a Book
This design is inspired by The Little Mermaid. Recently, I saw the Disney version again after not watching it since I was a kid - my favorite character is still Scuttle!
