31DC2013 Day 31- Honor Nails You Love <3 Part 1

2 Comments

Hi my lovely readers!

So, the end is upon us. I’m not sure whether to feel sad or relieved. The creative side of me wishes this challenge would go on for another month, while the practical side says LOL WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? Either way, it has been an amazing run, and I’m so glad I’ve gotten to share it with all of you! 

Today, I’m doing something a bit different. I’m not going to honor one nail. Oh no, that would be FAR too easy. I’m honoring 30 NAIL DESIGNS. Well, to be fair, I’m not doing any of the painting. But I feel like it’s right to celebrate all the amazing designs other bloggers have created this month. So without further ado, let’s start! (because this is gon’ take awhile…)

1) Favorite red nails: More Nail Polish

The butterflies are absolutely adorable! I love her idea, and the execution is spot on! 

2) Favorite orange nails: Let Them Have Polish!

I love how the black and orange doesn’t go anywhere near Halloween territory, and the stamping is so cute!

3) Favorite yellow nails: Plumeria Painted
