National Day Of...CHALLENGE intro

National Day Of...CHALLENGE (Aug. 19th-Oct. 31st)
Dream It Up Nails By COLLEEN

Hey all,

When I started blogging in late June, I was sort of disappointed to see that I had already missed the startup of most of the summer nail blogging challenges. So, for this fall, I have decided to start up my own challenge.

I stumbled upon this website one day that lists all these crazy appreciation days and National/International holidays, and thought that a lot of them would inspire some pretty cool nail designs.

If enough people are interested in taking part, I will start up an Inlinkz for the challenge. If not, I can always do it by my lonesome :)

I tried to make this challenge so that it’s not everyday, and you can have a lot of freedom with it. Even if you don’t want to take part in all of the days and only want to do a few, that’s cool too.

Here are the days:

August 19th, 2013: National Cupcake Day
August 24th, 2013: National Waffle Day
September 3rd, 2013: National Skyscraper Day
September 10th, 2013: International Makeup Day
September 21st, 2013: International Day of Peace
September 22, 2013: National Elephant Appreciation Day/National Ice Cream Cone Day (your choice)
September 23rd, 2013: International Checkers Day
September 25th, 2013: World Tourism Day
September 28th, 2013: National Fish Tank Day
September 29th, 2013: National Coffee Day
October 2nd, 2013: Guardian Angel Day
October 7th, 2013: World Smile Day
October 19th, 2013: Rainforest Day
October 29th, 2013: National Cat Day
October 30th, 2013: National Candy Corn Day
October 31st, 2013: HALLOWEEN!!!!

So, the challenge will start Aug. 19th and end on Halloween, Oct. 31st. How does this sound? Do you know of any other cool days I could add?

If you’re interested in taking part, send me an email, tell me on twitter, or leave a blog post comment and I will add your blog’s link to the Challenge page on my blog. If you have any other questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions, let me know! I’d love to hear from you!



  1. awesome idea, I will take part in some of these!

  2. This sounds great! I'd love to do some of these :)

  3. I love this idea too, but I kind of doubt I'll be able to polish my nails this much when I go back to school in two weeks :( I really like peace, elephant, coffee and cats days, so I would go for these but I can't promis anything :D (not mentioning halloween, which is a must)

    1. That's okay! I if you can even do one or two that would be awesome! :)

  4. I would love to take part in this! Too bad I already missed a challenge :( I'm gonna try this challenge, hopefully I can find time to do the waffle one!
