Violet Leopard nails for the 31 day challenge day 6

The prompt for today is violet nails for the 31 day challenge! I wasn’t sure what i wanted to do at first but i really like how it turned out. For this nail design i used bornprettystore stamping plate L009 which i have used in lots of my designs. It is a pretty good stamping plate because it has a bit of everything. So first i paint my nails with Violet voltage and then out a holographic coat of  bornprettystore #9 (light purple) . Then  i stamped my nails with black first and then after i stamped over them with the same stamping with purple perspective . I have never done double stamping before but i am really liking how these turned out.

Polishes used

Sally hansen – Violet Voltage

Born pretty store – holo polish #9

Avon -Black Drama

OPI Color paints – Purple perspective

what do you think?

Kiwi nails | Day 4 of the 31 day challenge green Nails #31DC2015

So today is day 4 of the 31 day challenge! So today’s prompt is green i usually can’t always think of a design i want to do for green nails but i have this year! So this year i thought i would do kiwi nails! I am very into the fruit nails apparently right now since yesterday i did pineapple nails. I even did a youtube tutorial for my pineapple nails. I am going to try and do as many tutorials as i can but not every day. I don’t think i can do a tutorial for every manicure i do for 31 days!

But today i have my kiwi nails I really like how they turned out :)

Day 3 Yellow nails for the 31 day challenge #31DC2015

So a little late posting today but i had a pretty busy day but i wanted to make sure i posted my yellow nails for the 31 day challenge! So this will be a quick post since it is getting later in the day.

SO i decide that i wanted to do pineapple nails for the 31 day challenge. I have been wanting to do pineapple nails before because i have seen people doing them and i thought they looked cute. I think that i will probably try doing pineapple nails again but in a different way. So Enough rambling on to the nails!


SO here are my pineapple nails for day 3 of the 31 day challenge

The 31 day challenge is 31 days of nail art challenges.Participates of the nail art challenge create nail art designs according to 3 different themes Colours, Styles and Inspired by. The challenge is to post one nail design each day for 31 days!

What if i don’t have a blog can i still participate in the challenge?

Of course! You don’t need to have a blog to do the challenge. You can post your nail art on twitter, instagram, facebook, google + or any other social media. Or if you just want to do the challenge on your own and not post that is cool too! If you do decide to post on social media use hashtag #31DC2015 so everyone can see your nail designs

When does the 31 Day challenge start? 

I will be starting this challenge on September 1st like many other bloggers.

What do you do for a tutorial design?

For this day you don’t have to make your own tutorial,not unless you would like to. But you actually find a tutorial of a nail design you like and do the nails following the tutorial. Don’t forget to mention which tutorial you followed to do your nails!

What does honor nails you <3 mean?

This day is to honor any nails you love may have seen that you loved or any nail art artist that you loved

Does the 31 Day challenge have to be done in September?

No, it does not. A lot of people do the nail art challenge in September. But if you don’t have time to do it in September you can always do it in another month. Still use the hashtag #31DC2014 so people can see your nail art.

Can the 31 day challenge be done at a slower pace?

Of course, If you don’t have time to do a new nail design every day. You can always space it out. However, to me completing the challenge in the 31 days is all part of the challenge. You can decide what you would like to do. Just have fun with it!

First nail art Haul from the Bornprettystore

So today’s post is going to be a little different. I thought i would share some of the of the items i bought from the bornprettystore a few weeks ago. I am really happy with the things i got from the bornprettystore like i usually am. They have alot of great stuff on their website and not just nail art stuff. So if you do decide to check it don’t forget to use my 10% off code ALLEX31 .

SO on to the new nail art products i received :) So first we will start off with what i got from the seckill deals. If you don’t know what the seckill deals are is basically the bornprettystore does these crazy sales that you can get up to 3 different items at a set time during the day for 1 cent each! The usually do two times during the day and you can get those certain items for 1 cent. I love when these deals happen because who doesn’t love buying something for 1 cent!

SO the first thing i got was Water decals 10 different sheets  i’m pretty excited about these i love water decals and i got a lot of them for very cheap. They are normally 9.99 which still isn’t to bad you would get each sheet for about 1.00



Next i got L009 stamping plate which i have used already to do my distressed nails . I liked this stamping plate it is a rectangle and has lots of different stamps on it. BP L009



Last thing i got from the seckill deals was a 200pc punk metal Square Star Drop Mix Stud Rhinestones Nail Art Decoration w/box. It has all different stud that you can put on your nails from square to stars to circles to diamonds. I really like this set and i am excited to use it.

So that’s the last of what i got for the seckill deals next is some other stuff i picked up at the bornprettystore :)


Next i got some nail stencil vinyls. I have been wanting to try out vinyls for a while so i thought why not pick these ones up!  got nail vinyls  Ns 08 I accidentally got the wrong ones but i still really like this design and i am excited to try them out!

Next, i got a new stamper since i have seemed to miss placed mine i have the scraper but not the stamper so i got a new one! I really like this rectangle stamper because it is bigger and is easier to stamp with i find . There are two colors for this stamper i got the stamper in green!

Next, i got the White Peel Off Liquid Tape & Peel Off Base Coat Nail Art Liquid Palisade. I really like this liquid palisade so far i have seen alot of different ones but i found them quite expensive i got this one for 3.99 and it is a pretty big bottle so i am pretty happy with this purchase
