31 Day Challenge 2014 Roundup

by - Tuesday, October 14, 2014


I truly never thought I would ever be able to finish a 31 day challenge. On a good week I post 3-4 times, but to post every day for a whole month? Unthinkable! But it just goes to show you that if you put your mind and energy into something then sometimes even the unthinkable is possible. :)

I don't think I'll be continuing to post daily in the future but I'll definitely give consideration to 31 day challenges in the future now. (I've done it once, doing it a second time can only be easier right?)

I've put this post together to summarize my experience and pull together all my fills, so check under the cut for both my reflection and (a lot of) pictures!

My Reflection
Overall this was a really great experience for me. I dropped behind a few times but ultimately I was able to get back on track. And I got to try a bunch of techniques I'd been meaning to get around to, as well as gave my freehand technique some work.
Some of my absolute favourite looks for this challenge were:

Though from shares/likes/comments I think my Green Color Blocking from Day 4 was my most popular with visitors. :)

I think if I did anything different next time it would be to do more freehanding and also to do more lettering. I only had one look with lettering this year (You're Gonna Hear Me Roar from Day 22) but it's something I really want to work on.

I'm super proud of myself and of everyone else who participated this year. We did it! :)

Overall which look was your favourite? Are you planning to participate next year? Let me know!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Congrats on completing the challenge! Great to see all your designs complied here.

  2. Ah, yes! I loved the green colour blocking back then! I perfectly remember it. Another favourite was the very last one!

  3. Congratulations on finishing! It is a huge accomplishment!

  4. You did a beautiful job and congratulations on finishing! That's a huge accomplishment. After much deliberating I decided that the rainbow nails are my fave. The rainbow feather is so dreamy! You won't ever find me doing this type of challenge because where there's nail art...I shall not be there! :p I wish I had the skill and patience for things like this but I just don't...but I LOVE seeing what other people come up with! Congratulations again! You knocked it out of the park. :)

  5. Congrats on finishing the challenge! You did an amazing job and I loved all of your designs! The 31DC was my third 31 day challenge of the year and I wish I could say that they get easier haha. As along as you plan ahead and set a kind of schedule of when you're going to get the nail art done, then it's a lot easier!

  6. Yay! Congrats on finishing! You did a fabulous job

  7. I love your wrap up! I enjoyed following you through the challenge and you did fabulous work! I really hope that my life won't be so crazay next year so that I can participate!

  8. Kudos to you for finishing! Phew, I doubt I could ever do anything even close to that!

  9. Congratulations on finishing!! Yet again, I only made it a couple days in :-P Maybe next year, just maybe LOL


Thanks for your comments! Even if I don't get a chance to reply I read and appreciate each and every one of them!! <3
