Hi, Polished People! This past month, I completed my November-annual 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. As usual, it was…challenging…but very fun and I’m so happy with all the manicures I created. Today, since I have these thirty-one designs to share, I’ve compiled them in case you’re in need of some nail art ideas. Let’s check it out…
1. Twizzler Nails
This mani turned out so cute! I think candy is a really great inspiration source for nail art. Choose your favorite and go for it!
