The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge - TAKE TWO! Who wants to join?

PLEASE NOTE: There is now a tab for this! See "TAKE TWO" - it's at the end next to "Tumblr."

Just a quick post to see if anyone else is keen for this. 
My friends at From L&P to English Tea and A Girl with some Clothes and I decided we wanted to do the 31 day nail art challenge - but do a new one. The old one's been done heaps, and we thought it was time for a change. So, we made our own! 

We kept our favourites from the old one and added a bunch of new ideas. We're all New Zealanders (although one's in England at the moment) and wanted to do some kiwi-pride ones, which is why there's a few country-related challenges. 


We're going to do this officially from the 1st-31st December, and as you can see, there are some that work specifically for those dates - like the Christmas theme is the 25th and New Years is the 31st. I just realised it's quite fitting that number 21 is galaxy nails - isn't the world supposed to end on the 21st December this year? Haha!

Anyway, the point of this post is, who wants to join? The plan is to get a bunch of people to do it and we can all post links to the blogs of other people who are doing it too. Exposure plus fun!
An added bonus is that it's not starting for a month and a half. Which gives you all plenty of time to get ahead, maybe paint the first 10 or so, so don't have to be a maniac like me and change your nails every day.

Comment if you're keen, and we'll somehow organise it! Maybe email me? Jeez, idk...
I'm nick-naming this "take two" by the way, "31 day nail art challenge" is such a mouthful!

Oh, I'm making a button to stick in my sidebar that'll link to this post. So if you're going to do it, add it too! The more the merrier!
It'll look like this:

  2. This sounds like fun ! I think it is hard for me to commit to all the days, but I will really love seeing your designs, especially the kiwi themes.

    Can I jump on the bandwagon for one or two days here and there? This is great that you took the initiative to create this challenge of your own. I love it!

  3. Sounds great, I didn't stick to the last one at all and gave up after a while, I don't know about painting my nails every day, but I could get a head start on them I suppose!

  4. Ooooh I really like this one!! I'd love to do it :> I don't have a nail polish blog, but I do have a kind of multipurpose tumblr... I post a lot of my manis there but I also do a lot of reblogging of dumb nerdy stuff. Hope that's all right :) because these themes are really awesome and I'm already getting ideas...
