31DC2014 Day 2: Orange

You know, I used to not be able to stand orange, but it's really grown on me in the past few months! I can now officially say I would wear orange even if not forced to do so by the challenge. Faint praise, maybe, but I only wear things I love on my nails, so not as faint as it may seem.

Today's nail art is inspired by the TV show Orange is the New Black. I haven't gotten around to watching the second season yet, I really must! I am mostly in it for Red and for Sophia, but I really adore all the supporting cast. I don't mind Piper, but despite being the main protagonist, she's actually the least interesting to me. So, chickens! (I know I'm not making a lot of sense right now. Hush.)

31DC2014 Day 1: Red

And so it begins! This year I decided to dive right in with some Star Trek nail art (thanks to my friend A for suggesting this idea!)

For those who aren't familiar, #31DC2014 is a nail art challenge that takes place every September- every day the participants tackle a shared topic, and try to put their own spin on it. The topics start out simple and gradually become more complex as the month goes along. Last year I got to day 25 before falling behind and not updating. This year hopefully I'll do the whole thing!

There are nail art challenges all throughout the year, and I may tackle more in the future, especially if I succeed at this one!

I'm really happy with how distinct these came out- can you tell which uniform came from which series?

Be sure to check out other blogs participating today!

I'm back, baby!

After two months of almost no posting (eep!) I am officially back in the game! September begins in just a few days, which means 31DC! For the uninitiated, that means I will be participating in a group challenge along with a lot of other nail bloggers, nail art every single day of September. Last year I almost completed the whole thing, I ended up falling off posting around the 25th. This year I hope to finish the entire thing!

In the meantime, here are a couple of things I did to my nails recently:

In other news, I have decided that I really need to rethink my watermark. Not that I don't love it, it's just really time consuming to do, especially as someone with focusing problems. Often it has made the difference between writing a post and avoiding one out of laziness. I may watermark over the month, and I may not. I guess I'll take it one post at a time.

Uh... whoops! I definitely didn't mean to abandon my blog for a month. That was not a planned hiatus. And now that I have a daunting number of NOTD posts built up, I don't want to find myself posting things I wore a month ago, so I'm just gonna post a bunch of them all together, right here and right now.

I have a big announcement coming up, and that's part of why I've been MIA recently... stay tuned!

Without further ado, nail art!

Hope to go back to posting regularly now that I've gotten that out of my system!

NOTD: Multichrome Water Marble

Since I recently got a whole giant nail mail from ILNP, what could I do but water marble them all together?

I know that my cleanup leaves a lot to be desired but I wanted to share it anyway :)

Swatched: Chic Sinful Tops

I missed day seven, wah! I guess an entire week was a bit much to expect with no prep. No worries, I'm gonna try to keep things at a 2x-3x times per week rate for the forseeable future. That said, on with the post!

Chic has really been stepping up their game! They just released a collection of twelve polishes called Sinful Tops, and they're quite a mix. The're really three mini-collections of four put together, but Chic has been doing things in twelves lately, so I get wanting to keep up the pattern. I have all twelve, and I will be splitting the collection into three sets, according to type.

NOTD: White flowers on burgundy

I love when I find a way to make nail art that looks sophisticated but also takes almost no time. I didn't really know where I was going with this manicure, I just new that I wanted to use my new Golden Rose burgundy polish (which probably had a number but I forgot it), and I was feeling lazy about picking a contrasting color. So I just went with white, the match-everything color, and turns out it was a good choice!

Six posts in six days, and I already know what I'm posting Saturday night. I think I did it!
