Last week I took part in a challenge and it reminded me of my glorious days :)) I was most productive when I was participating at no more than 3 challenges at a time. I was quite the busy bee and I loved it! But having to come up with some many designs and having to stick to a timeline it took a tool on me eventually. By the time the university started I felt like I needed a break and so I quietly stepped out of the challenges world. And almost two years later here I am ^_^
In order of appearance from the top-left corner:
For the record these aren't all my favorites I have others, which don't respect the timeline that I was talking about. It's not like I stopped doing nail art since then but I feel like that period (the August - September of 2013) was my most creative and productive. Now that I think of. I did have a lot of time on my hands then. Nonetheless, this only inspires me to push myself, my boundaries and to get out of my comfort zone.
Same order as above:
During that period I was participating at the 31 Weeks Challenge, that was about to end. The Mish Mash Challenge, this one was very creative but I wasn't able to finish it. The Technique Challenge "forced" me to try new techniques (I am still afraid to try the fish tale technique). The Nail Challenge Collaborative was a special kind of challenge, every month had a different theme and we had to come up with 4 different manicures. That was really challenging for me and I soon dropped out :(. September started with a new challenge - The Polish Addict Challenge, lots of creative and interesting themes which unfortunately I didn't see through. It would seem like I don't go through with things but given that I was in so many challenges I decided to do only the themes that I liked. I know that means cheating :)) Maybe that's why I haven't signed up to any collaborations since.
Another manicure I feel the need to mention is Purple Beauty. It is one of my favorite one stroke attempts and my nails where in great shape :))
Ok...I think I boasted enough, a little more and this eulogy would have become to much if it hasn't already.
Tell me what do you think about my proudest achievements?
Have a splendid day!
