31 Day Challenge: Day 31, Re-Create Your Favorite

I owe you an apology. I so wanted to do today's mani. I had great plans on revisiting the awesome Galaxies! I had every hope of actually completing this challenge 100%. But I can't. Maybe on another day I can post a new galaxy mani. But I am way too stressed to do them today.

I am currently in my last semester for my degree. I had no idea that this semester would be my worst yet, and at only 10 credits! All my semesters from getting my Bachelor's were never this hard and this is for an associates!

I haven't really talked about myself on my blog yet. But I suffer from Depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder. And winters are the hardest for me. I've loved doing all the new manis each day! But lately with my stupid classes my depression has worsened. Actually it has brought on a whole new aspect--panic attacks. I've had them before but lately they are almost everyday and last for hours.

While none of this will stop me from blogging and doing my nails, since it is my escapism, I just thought I would give you a reason why there will be no Day 31 mani. :(

Because today I get to relearn a whole semester's worth of medical coding so that I am able to do this week's work! I haven't done this type of coding for a year and they expect me to magically remember!? Grrr! :)

PS: My little owl friends are still alive and well living on my nails in bliss since they didn't get killed off today for the galaxy nails! :)

But here are my top six favorite manis from this challenge (click on the title to be sent to the original post):

Don't forget to check out the other final day of the 31 Day Challenge with Bec at Lacquer Dreams, Julia at Julia Loves Nails, Emma at Manicurity, Linda at Nail Polish Enthusiast, Alyssa at Fancy Phalanges, and Jenna at The Key to Jennasis and April at Munia's Nails


  1. Hugs, Kirsten. My DH gets a mild form of seasonal depression; it's not fun, especially when you're dealing with the panic attacks on top of it. Good luck with your coding! :)

  2. sending you lots of owl love and super hugs for completing the challenge. As a fellow depressive, i know how hard it can be - always here for a chat if you need me xxx

    1. Thank you so much! That means a lot to me!
