ProcrastiNails: 31 Day Challenge 2014 Roundup


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!
