31DC2013: Day 31 - Recreate a manicure you love

Hi there guys!! We are here, I am finished!! Only 10 days after everyone else!! Woo!! Recap post coming soon where I'll mention favourites and unexpected favourites and other thoughts. This is was a difficult prompt for me cause there are so many amazing nail art designs out there (especially right after this year's 31 day challenge!!) but I really wanted to do one I LOVE and not just really like. This is where Lucy's Stash's one stroke flower nails come in, I'm tried to do something inspired by this before, but this has a different colour scheme and it's just different in general (read: no where near as good but I still like it).

I even used the dark red base (with glitter of course to make it more pink) and very much enjoy it!! Maybe the seasonal trends are rubbing off on me (haha no, that's never the case). I just painted some pink flowers which hold no candle to the original but my version are like a more cartoony version. I've painted better flowers before but this has glimpses of something pretty. I really like the colour scheme (always love a good pink and red clash), it's just nice :)

It's weird that on my last challenge day last year I cut by nails at the same time. I just have things to do and long nails make things that bit harder. Normally I cut them and hate my nails short but for the first time I'm actually quite liking it. Though long nails are my favourite, I'm trying to find my perfect happy medium.

Red base: Nails Inc - Tate and OPI - Excuse Moi!
White: Lovely Me:Ex - White
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Bright pink: Color Club - Wing Fling
Other pinks: Barry M - Boots Xmas LE 2012 B and Per Una - Pink (no name)

I just posting here will be back to regular posting with my little series that I do, my "full" thoughts on the challenge will be in my recap post. But yays that I finished this business!! Thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day!! :)


  1. Love how you're totally rocking the red and pink colours! I must be in a Christmas mood already, (or it could be the name Boots Xmas influencing me here) I think these are so pretty and they are emitting the Christmas feel! Oh btw, I love your own spin into making it cartoonie! :) It really makes this nail art stand out from the rest! ♥

    1. Hehe I do love red and pink together!! I'm always in a Christmas mood, I can't wait!! And thanks!! :) My style is generally cartoony but I'm glad that they can stand out!! :D
