31 day challenge day#14 - stamping

Day 14 of the 31 day challenge: stamping

Yep, I KNOW, it is 2 days late but to be honest I am feeling a bit sad :( I love blogging and I love experimenting with nail-art but I feel like the 31 day challenge is beginning to make doing my nails a "chore" and making me love all of this a little less (just a little less). That and I have brought a lot of polishes but really that money should have been going towards the holiday I am hoping to go on at the end of the year to celebrate the end of my undergrad degree. Anyway, has anyone else felt like this? I am sure that once I calm myself down I will feel a lot better. I guess I just hate it when I feel a bit out of control.....LOL! I'm sure I will regain my complete passion once this challenge is over and I can do a manicure and wear it for a week (ok, realistically....a few days)


Sorry to whinge and thanks for listening to me! Lets move onto the polish.......
Today I have done some simple but elegant stamping and I love it! Last time I wore this polish it was winter. Today the sun was shining and I discovered that Revlon's 'Spanish Moss' has a beautiful shimmer in it!!! I am so head over heels in love with this polish. I will do a swatch for you one day soon. So stay tuned :)

I stamped using essence's 'A Piece of Forever', from their breaking dawn limited edition collection. It really is a great polish, it can easily be worn alone but as a stamping polish it is reliable and bold. I think it works better than the Konad gold polish.

So what do you think of this design? I really love it :)

Cheers and take care!

  1. This is a gorgeous manicure! Please, cheer up, you'll feel better soon. I understand what you feel, that is the main reason why I don't participate in 31days challenges kind of thing... But you're almost at the half of it!

  2. This is one beautiful mani!!! I feel what you do, for a while blogging and keeping up with the challenge seemed like a chore... Thankfully it was just a phase!! You could always take a break!! The same challenge will run in February, only with less frequent posting. Or you could take a little break after the challenge? Just don't get burned out!! We will all miss you if you did :(((
