The 31 Day Challenge 2014 - Day 31: Triangle Decal Mani

by - Monday, October 06, 2014


And we've made it. The last day of the 31 Day Challenge for 2014. I'm happy to be done, but I'm also a bit sad. It's hard to let go of things even when you were looking forward to the end. Oh well. There's always next year to look forward to. :)

The last theme for the challenge was to honour nails you love and you can check below the cut to see who and what design I decided to honour with this look!


I chose to honour a look put together by the wonderful Lisa over at The Polish Playground. I honoured her Gold and Green Geometric Triangles because not only do I love the look but it was also the first time I'd seen the triangle decal design (which now that I'm aware of I have seen cropping up on blogs all over the place!). Lisa is also super sweet and always has a kind comment for everyone, so how could I not honour some of her nails!


This look started with two coats of OPI Skull & Glossbones and then I stuck on my decals made of Julep Angela, Julep Roc Solid and Square Hue Oxford Street.

To make the decals I painted patches of polish on a plastic bag, and then peeled them off and cut them up once dry. I stuck them to my still-tacky second coat of S&G and then sealed with top coat.

Here's a look at the other final looks for this year:




That's it for the challenge, but I'll have a roundup post together hopefully within the next few days. I also have some Beauty Boxes that have been impatiently waiting for swatching so we'll be getting to those soon too. And then the Halloween looks! Woohoo! :)

Thanks for sticking with me through this challenge, and thanks for visiting!! xx

  11. I love this pattern!! I think I saw it done with the Zoya neutral shades recently and I was all "Oh wow!". I know I will never be patient enough to let every layer dry though so I will just sit here and see what YOU create!
