What’s up beautiful people! So the #31DC2017…I am so far behind I make it look like it’s currently in fashion! Buuuut, between getting sick and being dataless, I think I can be excused! EXCUSE ME, DAMMIT! So now we play the catch up game, which means this post is going to be PIC HEAVY!

I will be posting 5 days posts today, the next 5 posts either tomorrow, Sunday or Monday and then we’ll see where it goes from there. I do want to try and be finished before month end though because I want to start posting weekly again without being tied to a prompt The descriptions in these collective posts will also be shortened so I’ll only be stating the techniques and the polishes/stamping plates used.

So there you have all the prompts done till DAY 10. I hope I can be caught up by the end of next week because I am going on a short holiday with my family and then it’s back to “KNUCKLE DOWN, BUCKLE DOWN, DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!” (My husband reads my posts so he now has that song stuck in his head! You’re welcome, babe!)

Lots of mad love…

#31DC2017: 5. Blue

So I’ve been sitting here for quite a while now, thinking on how to start this post because let’s be honest, my life isn’t always that exciting! Do I talk about the weather? Do I ask you how your day went? Do I think of some funny story about fandoms I love? Out of all the endless options, I was pretty stumped. But then it hit me!…Just write am intro about how you have nothing to write an intro about! BOOM! I am a genius! I just stole 30 seconds of your life and I don’t even feel guilty! THE POWER OF THE INTERNET! MHUUUHAHAHAHAHAHA

So anyway…on to today’s prompt of the #31DC2017 we go!

5. Blue

Today’s mani was supposed to be inspired by something, but man, it just did not work like I wanted it too! So I am not going to say what it was inspired by because I am going to try and use it later on in the challenge again! AHA! 2 flies, one smack and whatnot…

I started by laying down 2 coats of Sally Hansen Pacific Blue (the OG one) as my base. I then blended a bit of Sally Hansen Pacific Blue & China Glaze Man Hunt with a fan brush and then after taking off the excess, just lightly brushed it over the base. Next, I added a tiny bit of acetone to a blob of China Glaze First Mate and just made some light strokes randomly over everything. Lastly using a super small headed dotting tool & Sinful Colors Snow Me White, I added some specks.

Like I said, there was actual inspiration behind this mani but it didn’t do the inspiration justice and the effect is really important to me! I’m HOPEFULLY going to try it again later on in this challenge, so keep an eye out for that.

Lots of mad love…

#31DC2017: 4. Green

Hey gorgeous beings! How was your manic Monday? Did you wish it was Sunday? That is definitely my fun day. Yup, my “I don't have to run” day...Also, I bet I can tell you what you're humming at the moment! *shimmy shimmy shimmy*

Before I perfect the art of talking utter nonsense, let's get to today's prompt, shall we? It is going to be a ROLLERCOASTER RIDE so hang on to your seats, boys and girls!

4. Green

I started by laying down 2 coats of China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint as my base. I then tore off pieces of a make up sponge and sponged a broad area in the middle of the nail with OPI Jade Is The New Black. In the centre of the area I sponged in a bit of Nubar Greener for some sparkle. Lastly, I just added some loose gold glitter and sealed it all in with a good thick topcoat (Seche Vite FTW!)

Okay, so this was hella easy but I swear I will start pushing myself a bit more. I have been feeling like I've been taking these prompts a bit too easy so I am going to try and bring in some more detail and harder techniques. Let me emphasize the TRY though, not promising anything!

Lots of mad love...

#31DC2017: 3.Yellow

Lovelies! Lovelies with the lovely jubblies! It’s Sunday and everyone is gearing up for the new week so not going to blab too much today. Sometimes silence is good. Needed even! So let’s get to today’s nails for the #31DC2017, shall we?

3. Yellow

For my base I started with 3 coats of Color Club Endless Summer. On my ring and middle finger I then layer stamped using Mundo de Unas White, Mundo de Unas Black, Born Pretty Store plate BP-146 and a clear stamper. For the pinky and index finger I made decals using Mundo de Unas Black, Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Harunouta plate 18 (available from Born Pretty Store).

I did a mani with skulls in it yo! Of course I’m happy with it! Now…lets touch on this yellow. I don’t like 3 coat polishes! AT ALL! Especially if it’s a crème but…BUT…this yellow is so worth it! It is juicy sexy! And honestly, I think with a bit of careful applying it could be a 2 coat yellow polish. Doesn’t it just scream summer?

Lots of mad love...

#31DC2017: 2 .Orange

So we got past day one, people! Heck, it's the most I've blogged in over a year so I am pretty stoked, knowhatimsaying? #31DC2017 make you blog real good, guuuurl!

I'm going to jump straight into today's prompt because it's Saturday and let's be honest, you have better places to be, you social butterflies you! *cries alone in a corner*

2. Orange:

For my base I started out with 2 coats of Morgan Taylor Funny Business and then a coat of China Glaze Pick Me Up Purple. I then made stamping decals with Mundo De Unas White, OPI In My Back Pocket & Born Pretty Store plate BP-73.

I kinda love how the purple base makes the orange pop! And let me tell you, if you want good purples, whatever spectrum it may be, Morgan Taylor is where it is at! Morgan Taylor Funny Business...I love you! *motorboats all my purple polishes*
