The 31 Day Challenge 2012 Roundup Post

It's time for the 31 Day Challenge 2012 roundup! You can also view these posts on my 31DC2012 Pinterest board, but I do like looking at them in a neat grid like this, too. (If they aren't in a neat grid for you, try viewing this post from my actual website instead of a reader/subscription service or mobile device.)

You can click any of the photos below to be taken to its post. Each post contains text descriptions of techniques that I used as well as polishes in the design.












Which manicure ended up being your favorite? I think mine had to have been the china cup nails for "blue day" or the Warhol drips for "inspired by artwork." 

I seriously had so much fun doing this challenge. The pace is difficult, but for me, that's a huge part of what makes it a challenge! I really pushed myself and ended up with a ton of work that I am very proud of. I would encourage anyone that loves nail art to give it a try. Whether you are just starting out or are an experienced Picasso, it can really help you to develop your skills in a short amount of time.

    I love the yellow on day 3, the metallics on day 8, and perhaps my favourite is the glitter on day 17.
    I got so much inspiration from your months challenge and the first design I am going to try is day 30's circles.

  27. I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your site. It appears as if some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously.

  28. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  29. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your
    situation; we have developed some nice practices and we are looking to trade methods with other folks, why not shoot me an email if interested.
