Last year, I did the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge for the first time! For years I had stalked other bloggers who participate, but I never had the guts to try it myself! Last year, though, I had just moved to Denver – and with a fresh start in a new city, I thought it would be the perfect time to try my hand. We were on the road in September, and so I missed the flood of other bloggers who participate in that month. Instead, I completed the challenge mid-November. This year, though, I want to be a part of the nail art blogging community! So I’m diving in and I’m going to do the challenge beginning on September 1.
I won’t lie – the challenge is really… well… challenging! But last year I produced some of my favorite nail art, and I really improved my freehand skills. I am so proud of the work I accomplished, and it seems like such a great way to kickstart my year.
Since I am also a member of the Digital Dozen, this year will be that much more challenging for me, since I’ll have to make each mani for 5 days hit two different challenge targets! But I think I can do it – wish me luck!
Chalkboard Nails has an amazing post that neatly sums up all you need to know about the 31 Day Challenge. I’ve downloaded some of her graphics, which I’ll be using to keep track of the daily challenge prompts (including the image at the top of this post). You can find more on her site!
I’ll be tagging my work with #31DC2014 – be sure to check it out however you follow. One of the best things about doing a challenge like this at the same time as other folks is finding new artists through the tag. I’m excited to see what gorgeous art everybody comes up with!
