31 Days Nail Art Challenge – But Not In 31 Days!

Hi there! I don’t know how many nail bloggers read my blog. But I’m sure there are a few. And I’m sure everyone who has more than a passing interest in nail polish has heard of nail (art) challenges. I’ve wanted to take part in those nail challenges for years, but redoing my nails and thinking up manis (from day 11 it becomes more difficult) on a daily basis is something that has always put me off.

But you know what? I can still do a 31 days nail challenge. I just won’t do it in 31 days – I’ll allow myself a few months to do it. You could say it’s my lifetime nail challenge! ๐Ÿ™‚ I also won’t stick to the given order, but I’ll decide what I want to do with my nails when I want to do a new mani. I hope I won’t have to skip any of the day challenges, but I might have to. In any event, I intend to do them all.

Now what’s the challenge? I know there are variations to the ‘original’ challenge, but since it was the original challenge that got me interested, that’s the one I’m going to do! ๐Ÿ™‚ Unfortunately I don’t know who came up with the original nail (art) challenge, so I can’t credit anyone, but if you google the matter, you’ll find hundreds (maybe thousands) of bloggers who’ve done it.

OK, here it is:

1 Red Nails
2 Orange Nails
3 Yellow Nails
4 Green Nails
5 Blue Nails
6 Violet Nails
7 Black & White Nails
8 Metallic Nails
9 Rainbow Nails
10 Gradient Nails

11 Polka Dots
12 Stripes
13 Animal Print
14 Flowers
15 Delicate Print
16 Tribal Print
17 Glitter
18 Half Moons My Husband’s Polish Picks (base colour + top coat)
19 Galaxies
20 Water Marble

21 Inspired By A Color
22 Inspired By A Song
23 Inspired By A Movie
24 Inspired By A Book
25 Inspired By Fashion
26 Inspired By A Pattern
27 Inspired By Artwork
28 Inspired By A Flag
29 Inspired By The Supernatural
30 Inspired By A Tutorial

Encore:
31 Recreate A Favourite I – 5 Blue Nails
31 Recreate A Favourite II17 Glitter
31 Recreate A Favourite III – 19 Galaxies

I’m not entirely sure when I’m going to start with this challenge. I already have my next nail post sorted, but I think I’ll probably start within two weeks from now. And I’ll also try my best to work a few Halloween-themed manis into the challenge.

If you’re wondering about the photos in this post, they’re not part of the challenge, they’re just photos of manis I did previously. They’re here because I wanted to give you something to look at in between all those words. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and I won’t recycle these photos for the challenge. I guess this would be cheating, so I won’t do it. So instead you’ll get to see new manis!

Anyone else who’d like to do the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge as a one-off lifetime nail challenge? If so, please let me know. And as always, thanks for stopping by!
