Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer & Stamping With Maniology BM-S161 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #12 Stripes

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. I did this mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It’s #12 STRIPES (as you can see, I went for animal stripes).

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer (2 coats). This is a beautiful polish. It’s bursting with pigment (it’s almost a one-coater), and I love the soft yellow shade.

For the images I used Maniology‘s BM-S161 stamping plate (which is part of their Fuzzy & Ferocious stamping plate collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

A-Z Nail Art Challenge

Hi there! I’ve just completed the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. Whilst I feel quite proud of myself, I’ve already looked up new nail art challenges. I found all sorts of different challenges, and some of them are rather demanding. So I opted for a challenge that I think I should be able to complete – the A-Z Nail Art Challenge!

The beauty of this challenge is that you can make up your own challenge. All you have to do is take 2 minutes out of your life to think up different challenges – one for every letter in the alphabet. Here’s what I’ve come up with:

Fuzzy Topper
Inspired By A Colour
Joy To The World
Nocturnal Creatures
Out Of Space
Quick & Easy
Whatever I Want
X-Plain To Me Why You’re Doing Red Nails Again…
ENCORE – Recreate A Favourite

I’ll be completing the A-Z Nail Art Challenge over the next few months. I don’t know how long it’ll take, but the one thing I know is that I won’t be doing the manis in alphabetical order. Oh, and I might change the individual challenges if I have a better idea. I already changed “Green” to “Galaxies”! 🙂

I won’t be using any photos of manis I’ve already done. I’ll be doing new manis, but I might recycle my own ideas. 🙂 In case you’re wondering about the photos in this post… well, they’re here because I didn’t want to do a text-only post. And since I already had these photos in my media library, I thought I might as well just recycle them for this post. But again, the manis I’ll be doing for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge will be new manis.

What do you think of this Nail Art Challenge? Is this something you can see yourself doing? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
