After finishing the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge, I thought it would be good to do a round up post where I share a bit about my experience. As I've mentioned, I used a combination of brand new nail art created specifically for the challenge and nail art I had done in the past that I hadn't shared before. My main goal was to post daily for 31 days. You can see all my posts for the challenge at this link: http://www.pixiedustnails.com/search/label/31DC2015
Here's a look at all the nail art together...
I think the most challenging part of it were those long days when I wanted to be lazy once I got home but I had to stay up to either post or paint my nails (or both!) instead. I also had quite a lot of nail art that I needed to do in a hurry. Often I'll paint my nails one day then add the nail art on the next so I struggled a bit having to do it all in one evening. I also found it hard to remove nail art so quickly after I'd done it! I usually give it a week or so especially if I really like how they look. My sunflower nail art was especially hard to remove so soon because I was so fond of them.
There also some fun moments during the challenge. One of the highlights for me was when I posted my nail art that was inspired by fashion made by Amanda Valentine of Project Runway. Amanda Valentine (@valentimes) actually liked and commented on my nail art on Instagram! It definitely made my day!
It was a fun 31 days! I'm not sure if I'll do the challenge again next year but we'll see! I plan to try to continue to post more regularly so I think the challenge definitely helped with that. My favorite nail art designs that I shared for the challenge were my sunflower nails and my EPCOT galaxy nails! I also really liked my yellow nails and nails inspired by a song. Which were your favorites?
