#31DC2015 Blue & Violet

So today we're talking about nails again. I hope you don't mind. There's many of manis to go on the 31-day challenge, so we better get going with it. And today, I'm sharing the blue and the violet sets of the #31DC2015. What's fun about this challenge is that it makes me think of the nail art a bit differently, as well as doing different colors, patterns etc than I maybe normally would. Which is great because it makes the creativity flow better even after the challenge. 

But anyway, are you ready to see the nails? Let's do it:

So the first set, like mentioned, is the blue one. I went for a simple leopard print design with some glitter on the accent nail. This is pretty classic for me (which clashes with the previously mentioned "I think nail art differently with the challenge") but since the colors are not so me, I guess this is something new to see. The problem I have with blue polishes is that they can stain worse than blacks and other deep dark shades. But this was quite lovely.

I personally think that the glitter here is quite cute. I don't have many blue glitters (even though I hoard glitter polishes way too much), but this one is so pretty. The photo isn't doing justice to it though, I think it looks even better in real life.

The polishes I used for this design were all by China Glaze: One Track Mind as a base, Boho Blues and Liquid Leather for the animal print and Let's Dew It for the glitter accents. Boho Blues and Let's Dew It are a tad more lilac in reality than how they show in the pictures, but they still look very lovely here.

The second one today is a violet glitter gradient with a gradient base. So a lot of gradient action going on. This probably would've been very nice even without the giltter, but I felt like having sparkle on my nails so I did that too.

For a person that doesn't love violet/purple too much, I really own plenty of polishes in that color. Weird. I guess I kinda love it on my nails though. Here I used four shades of violet and the purple glitter topper. And there are quite many more of those colors, as you will see later when I introduce my nail stash more.

The polishes I used were all by China Glaze here as well: Sweet Hook, Spontaneous, Grape Pop, Crimson, Fairy Dust and Be Merry, Be Bright. And I think these nails were quite fun to wear, as the idea was pretty simple, but they look a bit more complicated. Gradients, I think, are a good way to start learning nail art. They are pretty fun and easy to do, and they will look like more effort than they actually are.

So what do you all think about these designs? Let me know in the comments! And if you have done/are doing #31DC2015 challenge at the moment, let me know that as well. I'd like to see yours too!

Now, time for me to say bye with this scheduled little piece, but I will see you very soon with another post. I have many fun things coming up, collaborations and such, so I hope you will enjoy the things I have planned for you. Can't tell you all of them yet, but one should be revealed at the start of next month, so stay tuned. And in the meantime, you can follow me on social media (and say hi, I love connecting with my readers there!) for more frequent updates. 

Have a lovely day ♥


  1. Love them both. Exactly like you mentioned above, blue polishes stain very badly and this is why I avoid them, but sometimes I use them with two or even three layers of base coat.

    1. Blues are the worst! But like you said, few layers of base coat usually helps ;) ♥

  2. love the nails both!!


  3. Both are gorgeous in their own way, but that Violet mani is just killing it - there's something so stunning to the mix of colors!


    1. Thank you! I really like it too. It's nearly over the top but still definitely wearable :) ♥

  4. Oh I love the blue! I love how many different patterns there are in it.

    1. Thank you, I think leopard print and glitter are always a cool combo :) ♥

  5. nice post, amazing photos :)


  6. Love the bue one!!!
