OMD Nail Challenge Update

Today is the half-way mark of the Oh Mon Dieu! It’s the Rather Awesome 31 Day Challenge Giveaway! If you’re just finding out about our July nail art challenge- it’s not too late to join in! The links are open til Aug 5th! Craftynail, Eeeek and I want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have participated this July! We are blown away with all the unique designs we’re seeing each day! >>Attention participants- don’t miss the important reminders at the end of this post!


Here’s the full description of the challenge: Oh Mon Dieu! It’s the Rather Awesome 31 Day Challenge Giveaway!


Here’s our reference page with all the links you need to click: OMD Reference Page


Here are the themes for each day:



And here’s what you could win in the end:

Prize Collage 1000



♥ Please enter a unique design for each of your entries. If you use the same manicure for two different themes then only one of them will count towards a raffle entry. EXAMPLE: You cannot use the same pink heart manicure for PINK day and HEARTS day to earn a total of two raffles. If you did this you will unfortunately earn only one raffle entry (the excess raffle entry will be removed). You still have time to make up for it though!

♥ Please ensure that your photos are accessible. If they are linked to a private account (i.e., facebook profile) and we can’t see them, you’ll need to adjust the security settings to make them viewable.

♥ If you have missed a few days and want to make them up- don’t worry! You can always squeeze submissions in by the August 5th deadline.

♥ DAY 31/ Recreate your Favorite: Here’s some clarification on this theme…You need to pick another mani from the OMD challenge and recreate it to be your own. EXAMPLE: If you liked Craftynails Daisies French Mani from Day 14- then do your own version of that design for your day 31 entry. You can make your version similar to hers, or you can change it up by using different colors, etc…

♥ If you are just starting the challenge now you can jump in on the day 15 theme… or you can start at a prior day. You don’t have to do every day, but the more you do the better your chance of winning a prize at the end!

We want to re-iterate these rules, not because we are stuffy rule-makers… on the contrary, we are very laid-back ladies LOL! But we understand how hard you are working to put out amazing designs each day. And we want you to know that we will be verifying entries so you get a fair chance at winning a prize at the end! And for anyone who has accidentally ‘doubled up’ and used the same manicure twice- you still have time to do a new mani and enter the new link by Aug 5th! If you have any questions about your past submissions or questions about the rules and regs- just let us know! Also, you can find the full terms and conditions on the bottom of this post.


Are you gearing up for the final stretch now? The themes are more complex, but with a little creativity I know we can pull it off. 😀 Thank you for participating in our challenge and keep up the good work!

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 11. Stripes

Sorry for spamming you guys, now I’bve caught up, yay !

Another simple one for the stripes. I wanted to get the stripes lined up, but my wonky fingers (especially the little one!) wouldn’t play ball… Well, you get the idea I think…

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 9. Textured

I’m a couple of days behind, haha, oops !

So keeping it simple to catch up – the prompts towards the end of the month are so much complicated anyway, I know I’ll get to stretch my creative muscles a bit…

When it comes to textured polish, I love mine black and leathery best – so here I have used Nails Inc Leather effect and Barry M Croc effects – with a little stud, since the only thing cooler than (fake) leather is studs 😀

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 8. Matte

I know, I know, I’m a day behind. I’ve been battling with Clingy Kitty (formerly Naughty Kitty) to get things done…. Anyways, I’ve gone purple again today !


Since I got the new brushes from piCture pOlish, I’ve been re-trying them all, and I’m so much happier – the brush is a real deal-breaker for me, that’s why I’m so fussy about the ones I use for my polishes 🙂

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 7.Holo

I’m incredibly lucky that Black Sheep Lacquer recently sent me some beautiful nail polish to swatch. As far as I’m aware, this shade is not named yet and not listed either [edit : Margarita Monster can now be purchased here], but it is just so stunning I couldn’t resist showcasing it for holo day 🙂

It’s a super smooth gelly, a little sheer, but it dries so fast, it’s not a big deal to have to layer a bit! Here’s a swatch :


No top coat here – it is sooo shiny. And just because, honestly, I don’t even know how this polish could be improved upon by nail art, I kept it very very simple :
