31 Day. Day 28, Inspired by a Flag

I didnt want to attempt to recreate a country flag as I've done in the past for #31dc2016 Flag prompt, so I searched around on the Internet till I found some home decor that was cool and flag related. I was inspired by this children's room linked here.
I used Greige Gardens from Sally Hansen on the tips and a base of Sally Hansen Choco-Latte. I stamped my stripes with Espresso from Revlon and the image from Moyou Holy Shapes 02.

I loved this one and wore it long enough to put me behind in the challenge! All caught up now though.

31 Day. Day 27, Inspired by Artwork

I decided to go with my favourite type of art fort the Artwork prompt for #31dc2016. I wasn't going to do nail art, but became inspired by Starrynail and Glitterfingersss on Instagram when both posted gorgeous fall manis at the same time a couple days ago. For mine I stamped the falling leaves words from BM-S207 and then began my doodles, acorns and leaves in acrylic paint. My base is China Glaze mind the gap.

I like my fun abstract fall look. The idea for the doodles actually came from a craft on Pinterest where you doodle designs in white paint on a wreath made of leaves.

Cheers all,

31 Day. Day 26, Inspired by a Pattern

Today's look is inspired by a pattern. I've been wanting to do a plaid look for a while, so I went for it with this dotting and plaid look. I used Barielle Swizzle Stix as my turquoise/blue base and my distressed fingers are Sunny Days from Rimmel and the Barielle. My stamping is Essie Penny Talk and the images are both BP-L013. I actually attempted to double stamp the plaid in the yellow, but it hardly showed.

Below is the first take on this mani, but I kind of hated and redid the dotting fingers to the plaid. They weren't as crisp or as cute as my final look.

Getting close to the end of the challenge, hope everyone's struggling to keep up like!

Cheers all,

31 Day, Day 25, Inspired by Fashion

I didn't know what I was going to do for fashion, as there is so much inspiration out there. I decided to look at men's fashion and found this line of wild neon camouflage looks from DSquared linked here. I used China Glaze Celtic Sun as my neon base and neon acrylic paint for the rest. On my black and white base fingers I used one coat of Snow-flakes shimmer polish from Color Club and then decided to throw in the black doodle image at the last minute from BP-L013.

I matted the whole thing and loved how quirky it turned out, while it still managed to keep a masculine/feminine feel.

31 Day. Day 23, Inspired by a Movie

I just saw The Princess Bride listed on Shomi, and now I can't wait to watch it. That was my inspiration for this look, since it's been years since I've seen it. 

My polishes:
Rimmel Sunny Days
Barielle Swizzle Stix
OPI Shop Til Sunset

My romantic couple and princess are from the plate BP-72 I was sent for review by Born Pretty Store and the lips and XOXO are from BP-L012

I really like the sunset and shadow effect and might come back to this effect soon!

As I said, this plate is from  Born Pretty Store linked here. If you check it out, use this 10% off discount code UNGX31 they are offering my readers!

31 Day. Day 22, Inspired by a Song

Today the prompt is Song. The song I chose is Sucker For Pain by Imagine Dragons, Lil Wayne, and a bunch of other artists linked here. It's from the Suicide Squad soundtrack and I can't stop listening to it. I've been listening to the soundtrack since I first saw the preview. I used Klean Color Concrete Gray and
images from BM-425, BM-323 and BM-301. I was going for a sort of toxic love motif here with the barbed wire and roses. The kiss me was a last minute add, but it totally made it for me!

Hope you love my toxic love!

Cheers all,

31 Day, Day 21, Inspired by a Colour

Today is inspired by a colour, and I've decided to be inspired by one of my favourite polishes. Finger Paints Don't Make a Scene. I know it's just s nude, but it's the perfect nude for my skin tone and I'm constantly using it for art. I stamped the chevrons with Essie Penny Talk using BP-L013and the rose is from BP-73. I filled the stamp with white before reverse application and then top coat. 

Simple, but pretty. 

I wore this look for a job interview, so hopefully it was lucky! 

Cheers all,
