The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2015 Roundup (& Only a Year Late, Too!)


Almost a year ago, in September 2015, I tackled the 31 Day Challenge for the fifth time ever. I shamefully forgot to do a roundup last year, but figured "better late than never" and completed it this morning. You can also check out the roundup of my manicures from 2015 on my 31DC2015 Pinterest board.

The 31 Day Challenge 2016 Update

Hi everyone! I've been receiving lots of tweets, messages, and emails about whether or not I am hosting the 31 Day Challenge this year! The good news is that, yes, I will be hosting it! The bad news is that I don't have the prompt images ready yet. I will have them ready to go in the next week or so, and definitely before the traditional September 1st start date, so just bear with me for a few days.

In the meantime, you can check out the 31 Day Challenge FAQ to start learning more about this fun yearly tradition!

See you soon!

Watercolor Wash with Splattered Accents

Watercolor marbled nails by @chalkboardnails

Recently, I had the very exciting opportunity to do an interview with our local CW station here in Phoenix, CW6! I knew they would be filming an up-close view of me doing some nail art, so I knew I had to do something jazzy on my own nails, too. I adapted this look from a Neiru lesson called "Fuchsia Swirl" by Mariko Shida.

The Collector - Golden Decals for Your Odder Side

The Collector - Gel manicure with decals by @chalkboardnails

I titled these nails "The Collector."

Doesn't it seem like an amalgamation of weird items that you'd find in some spooky antique shop, owned by a weird dude that probably does a little spellcasting on the side?

These golden Wrap Artist decals pair with the soft, pink base in a really cool way. It's a sort of girly-meets-peculiar juxtaposition that I really enjoy!
