31DC2016: Day 24 - Inspired by a Book


It's day 24 of The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge and today's challenge is Inspired by a Book!

These nails are one of my favourites so far from this whole challenge! I wasn't sure which book to base my nails on (mainly because I don't read a lot of books), but I landed on Cat in the Hat because it could be turned into a cute mani!


I started by painting my index and pinky fingers with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Neon Blue. On my ring & middle fingers, I painted my nails with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Bright White. On my middle finger, I placed down two Line Nail Guides and painted over it with Beyond the Nail - Rouge. I immediately peeled away the nail guides to get crisp lines. I got a striping brush and painted on horizontal lines across the sides of my nails to make it look like the book cover using Beyond the Nail - Deep Black. I also added a Cat Nail Decal (which I didn't remove the eyes) on my ring finger. I topped every nail off with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.

31DC2016: Day 23 - Inspired by a Movie


It's day 23 of The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge and today's challenge is Inspired by a Movie!

Any guesses on what movie my nails were inspired from? I'm not original and I couldn't think of any movie to base my nail art on.. so Frozen it is!!

I painted my ring finger with one coat of Beyond the Nail - Bright White and sponged over it with a gradient of Beyond the Nail's Spring Blue Creme & High Tide. I applied one coat of Beyond the Nail - Mermaid Dust over it to make it sparkly, then stuck some Snowflake Nail Decals on top. I painted my other nails with three thin coats of Beyond the Nail - Blizzard. I topped everything off with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.

31DC2016: Day 22 - Inspired by a Song


It's day 22 of The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge and today's challenge is Inspired by a Song!

I could not for the life of me think about a song that I could use as an inspiration for my nails.. I happened to have a set of Nested Basic Shapes Nail Guides on my desk and wanted to use the stars.. so I began my search for a song that had something to do with stars! I did this whole thinking process backwards, but it worked :) I landed on OneRepublic - Counting Stars. 

I started by painting my nails with three thin coats of Beyond the Nail - Star Cluster. When it was completely dry, I placed some Nested Basic Shapes Nail Guides over my nails and painted over it with Beyond the Nail's Neon Blue & Rouge. (The neon blue was from an old batch that isn't so neon... & it basically changed the shade when putting it over the other polish). I immedietly peeled away the nail guides and topped everything off with one layer of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.

31DC2016: Day 21 - Inspired by a Colour


It's day 21 of The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge and today's challenge is Inspired by a Colour!

I was looking through all my polishes and saw Fallen Leaves (that I probably haven't used since last Fall...) and knew I had to do a mani based around the gold glitter that's in the polish.

I painted my index and pinky fingers with three thin coats of Beyond the Nail - Angel. On my middle and ring fingers, I painted them with three thin coats of Beyond the Nail - Fallen Leaves. When it was dry, I placed on a Wine Glass Nail Decal onto my middle finger and added one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat to each nail. While still wet, I stuck on some Half Round Nail Studs down the middle of my ring finger.

31DC2016: Day 20 - Water Marble


It's day 20 of The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge and today's challenge is Water Marble!

I am NOT good at water marbling... this is probably my most hated nail art of the whole challenge. I had to do my nails over 3 times just to get this design, and it's not even good. *sigh* Look at the air bubbles!! Ughhh.

I started by painting my nails with one coat of Beyond the Nail - Bright White. As it was drying, I painted around each nail with NailExperiments - Easy Peel Latex Barrier. When everything was dry, I got a cup of room temperature water and added drops of Beyond the Nail - Lilac Creme, Spring Blue Creme, & Spring Red Creme. I tried to do a watermarble design but I just suck.. so it came out all weird. I peeled away the latex barrier, which was a true lifesaver, and topped each nail off with one coat of Beyond the Nail - Mermaid Dust. I also added one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat to make it shiny!

31DC2016: Day 19 - Galaxy Nails


It's day 19 of The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge and today's challenge is Galaxy Nails!

I was trying to go for a cute holo pastel themed galaxy mani, but it didn't turn out like I thought. I didn't like how my base turned out, so I decided to stamp over it with a galaxy image to kind of mask the base.

I started this mani by painting my nails with one coat of Beyond the Nail - Bright White to get my gradient to stand out better. I sponged over each nail with Beyond the Nail's Asteroid, Supernova, & Moonshine. I also added one coat of Beyond the Nail - Scattered Holographic Topcoat to get it extra sparkly. When everything was dry, I stamped over each nail using Bundle Monster Stamping Plate - BM-610 and Beyond the Nail - Deep Black. I topped every nail off with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.
