Theme of the Month: April Daisies & Diamond Tips

Well, the germs-vs-humans battle has been going on in our household this week. You know, the fight with the cold/allergy/sinus warriors...yeah, all winter long we think of the sunny and warmer weather of spring while conveniently forgetting these guys.

But during a brief interlude after Mr. Kimett had won his battle and before I fully embark on mine, (it seems no amount of vitamin C and hand sanitizer has been able to keep it at bay), I was able to change my nail design yesterday. It's (almost past) time to celebrate April Birthdays!

31DC2013 - In Review

Like so many other 31DC2013 challenge finishers - I am excited to look back through the designs and provide a little re-cap of the adventure. It's a great feeling to have completed all of the designs; although, I can't say that I officially completed it as intended since I did not do a design each day for 31 days. All of my hats go off to those that did that!!

Thank you to everyone who gave me encouragement and feedback along the way (you know who you are. Yes, you!). And, to Mr. Kimett - who never looked bored (on the outside) when I was constantly barraging him with a bazillion questions about design ideas. I hope you'll read the whole post to see the collage of all of the designs together, find out what designs were most popular with you all and which was my favorite. Oh, and there's a celebrity photo...

Final Challenge Design: Honoring Nails of Oooh, Shinies!

There are a few more bubbles of happiness than usual rising up from the keyboard as I type this post. Not only have I "done it" and finished the 31DC2013, but in doing so I get to honor one of my long-time favorite polish bloggers, Bregje of Oooh, Shinies!

Bregje has inspired thousands of fans all over the world, myself included, of course. She also has been personally helpful to me and my little blog. Last year, she graciously took time by guiding me with blog set-up and navigating social media (Thank you, again & again!). As you can tell from the number of positive comments...

April Showers: Following a Waterfall Tutorial

Wow-ie! Almost there...

The second-to-last design of the #31DC2013 challenge is to follow someone else's nail art tutorial. I have yet to become comfortable with different nail art brushes and need LOTS of practice with them, especially drawing lines. For this reason, I chose to go with a waterfall design tutorial. This is a common design that has been particularly made famous by the talented Nailasaurus (aka, Sammy). Now, hers look especially splendid, made with skill and precision. Since she's been at this for over 4 years, I was in no way expecting mine to resemble hers. And, I just love her video tutorial style. She is one of the nail community's "Great Ones" for sure! I've included links to her waterfall picture and video tutorials, a link to her tutorial library, AND links to see ALL of her waterfall designs in this post - make sure to check them out!

Now...onto my very first waterfall...

My Inner Dragon Likes Crows Toes

If you haven't already experienced it - let me tell you one of the many cool things about nail polish art. The ability to express many moods at whim, and then, change. See, my art in the previous post shows my more serious, contemplative self. But today's art, well, let's just say shows one of my sillier sides.

If I allowed my inner dragon to paint my nails...
