The End of a year!!!

Yesterday was the last day of my year of nail art, it didn't end as smoothly as I had imagined, but I did get it done. Last weekend with one week left I realized I had missed a significant amount of posts. It added up to 56 total, at first I was not overly concerned, I figured I could extend it a month and make up the missing designs. I thought I was ok once I accepted the fact I had failed at my challenge, but after a couple hours it really ate me up inside, to invest one whole year and ultimately come up short, there was no way I was going to let this happen!! So I set my mind to it I had 6 days and 56 designs to paint. I went to Instagram asking for request and told my 2000+ followers that this is what I had planned to, that way I could not back out. With a list of over 100 requests I sat down and started to attack it. In those 6 days I finished the missing designs. I am not going to lie, I have been a mess. I consumed an entire case of 4 hour energy drinks and have maybe slept 10 hours total all week. But I am so happy I was able to complete all 365 designs. The last design was painted at exactly 11:37 on Nov 30th. If you are a client reading this, I am so very sorry if you saw me this week, I was probably a little bit crazy! lol!
I just want to finish up by saying thank you! never in a million years did I think I would get as much support as I have over this project, you are all amazing!! XO!


  1. i love your blog and your designs, i think it still counts as success!!:), i can't wait to see the designs!!

  2. Congrats! You're so talented honestly! Do you do all your art on your own nails on other people. I would be so sad taking it off after just completing it!

  3. I so admire your determination! I actually just discovered your blog and I think I will spend next few hours browsing because first three designs you've done are awesome and I want to see more :) Just going to follow you on some channels so I don't miss anything... xx
