Manicure Challenge Continues

Heya lovelies,

I hope you're all doing well today. What are you up to? ♥

So, today I'm sharing some manicures from the 31-day manicure challenge. The ones who have been reading for a long time know that these bits used to be on the bottom of outfit posts. Well, not anymore.

After considering it carefully, and reading posts from super talented bloggers, I thought this is the best way to put up my nail art. (And this way, it lets you choose whether you want to see nail art or my outfits at all.) Even though I love writing and reading long blog posts, I think it's fun to have shorter ones in between. I realize this might affect people reading my blog, changing my posting rhythm like this, but I hope the change is a positive one.

And speaking of readers...

I'm totally amazed with the fact there really are 200+ people having this blog in their reading list. And that's only the ones I can see through blogger. There's also A LOT of you reading anonymously, and I also want to thank you. It's amazing to see the pageviews roll!

So big thanks to all of you for the support with my blog, you are my motivation!

Okay, so today it's purely about nails. Let's get that rolling, shall we?

31-day challenge

#19, Galaxies

Yet another manicure I had only admired from pictures, but never tried out myself. I found a great tutorial for these in my blogger friend Ulrika's blog, Pug-a-licious. You should check her out, she's one of the lovelies personalities I've met through blogging! ♥

With her instructions, I quickly learned how to do this myself, and I think the result is quite nice. :)

#20, Water Marbled

First time with this one as well, and while I love the colors, I'm not so happy with the pattern here. I guess I just need little practicing with this technique... I put pictures of both hands, because this is one of those rare manis that might look better on your strong hand as well (in my case, it's the right one).

#21, Inspired by a color

Probably not too hard to guess my choice of color was pink... And that I added leopard print and glitter... :D Yep, kind of an obvious choice, but since I got to do pretty much anything, this is what you get.

Now, if you wish, I could do a tutorial for any of these (or any previous manicures, for that matter.) if you think you want to see that. Just let me know in the comments. ;)

That's all for today, I hope you liked this post. Please leave any thoughts, comments and suggestions on the comment box below, to help me grow into a better blogger. Thanks!

  7. Aww, I think the pattern for the water marbling you did came out very well - especially for a first attempt!
    I still haven't attempted a galaxy manicure (never brave enough) - but I think you might've inspired me! xx

    1. Aww, thanks sweetie! It was pretty nice first ever try - but I will try and get better in it within a year or so ;) I'm glad to be an inspiration, even if it's a thing as "small" as nail art ;)
