It occurred to me today that in the nearly 12 months I’ve been doing this nail art thang, I haven’t taken part in a single 30-day challenge. For any of you nail art noobs out there, a 30-day challenge is about as self-explanatory as it gets – another blogger or group of bloggers or even yourself if you’re feeling kind of masochistic lay out a collection of themes over the month, one a day, and you paint your nails accordingly. And then share them, of course, so others can bask in your creativity and you can bask in theirs. I’m in the habit of painting my nails and blogging just about every day, so daily acetone-inhalation is not quite as big a deal for me as it might be for others who only post every now and then, but I love it when someone else does the thinking for me, so I’ll join up and follow the leader! Or leaders, plural, in this case, as this particular challenge, Oh Mon Dieu (Part 2), was conceived of and is being hosted by the fine ladies of Craftynail, Brijits Digits, Eeeek! Nail Polish! and Nail That Accent.
I was busy being Canadian yesterday (if you don’t have a cottage, that means you sit in the sweltering heat in front of a fan with a Caesar in one hand and a Molson in the other, watching The Trailer Park Boys on endless, drunken repeat) so I’m already a day off the pace, but looking to catch up quickly. Should you wish to join in on all the lacquered fun (there’s prizes!), it’s as simple as following the themes (every day or just those of your choosing) and remembering to share and share alike.
