Chalkboard nails #31dc2014 nail art challenge on BeautyJudyI can’t believe I have completed 12 days of the 31 Day Challenge for 2014 – techically, at the writing of this post, I’ve completed more than that! But this post focuses on the nail art for days 7-12!

Day 7

#31DC2014 Nail Art Milani Cosmetics Spotlight white Nubar Two-Way Nail Art Pen black on BeautyJudy

Day 7 prompt: Black and white nails! I decided to channel my inner Deborah Lippmann for her NYFW SS15 Kate Spade nail art and do this graphic mani. I used Milani Cosmetics Spotlight White, and Nubar Two-Way Nail Art Pen in Black to achieve the look.

Day 8

#31DC2014 Nail Art Zoya Autumn negative space naked teardrop mani on BeautyJudy

I used more NYFW as inspiration for day 8, which was a prompt for metallic nails. I used Zoya Autumn to recreate the naked teardrop mani that Zoya’s team created for the Zimmermann NYFW SS15. I think this looks better on shorter – and less stained! – nails.

Day 9

#31DC2014 Nail Art Rainbow nails philly loves lacquer on the way to cape may opi where did suzi's man-go? CND bicycle yellow wet n' wild contact high sally hansen pacific blue opi a grape affair milani cosmetics imperial purple on BeautyJudy

For day 9, the prompt was rainbow nails! I decided I wanted to rainbow on my nails! I used, from left to right:

  • Philly Loves Lacquer On the Way to Cape May
  • OPI Where Did Suzi’s Man-go?
  • CND Bicycle Yellow (Vinylux)
  • Wet n’ Wild MegaLast in Contact High
  • Sally Hansen Extreme Wear Pacific Blue (old formula)
  • OPI A Grape Affair
  • Milani Cosmetics Imperial Purple
  • back to the PLL polish I started with!

This was a fun and colorful mani!

Day 10

#31DC2014 Nail Art Habit nail polish Bell Epoque Alessandro Deep Ocean Blue Masglo Galactic top coat on BeautyJudy

Day 10, I pretty much phoned it in. I was sick all week and I just didn’t feel like working the gradient, which was the prompt. I used Habit Bell Epoque on the bottom half of the nail and Alessandro Deep Blue Ocean at the tip. I put Masglo Galactic Top Coat in the middle, my lame attempt to gradiate.

Day 11

#31DC2014 Nail Art China Glaze The Giver nail polish collection dots nail art History of the World, capacity to see beyond friends forever, right? on BeautyJudy

Day 11 is my favorite of the entire week! Polka Dots prompt! I used all China Glaze The Giver polishes – History of the World, Capacity to See Beyond and Friends Forever, Right? I’d wanted to use all three of these in a mani ever since I got them and I was happy with this!

Day 12

#31DC2014 stripes Nail Art China Glaze The Giver nail polish collection History of the World, capacity to see beyond friends forever, right? on BeautyJudy

Day 12 I recycled my Day 11 dots and added some stripes, for the prompt!

Although I phoned it in a couple days, I was still pretty happy with a few of the six days here!

Which day is your favorite?! If you’re following along and doing this too, which day did you like from days 7-12?!
