Good Morning lovelies & happy Wednesday. We’re already halfway to the weekend! & we’re already on our second prompt for Glam Nails Challenge August!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I decided to take on a challenge for this month to inspire me to get out of my rut. The challenge this month is fruit themed, & I don’t think I’ve attempted that many fruit themed designs over the years, so I’m very excited for the challenge.
Today’s prompt is blueberries, & my design was inspired by @brydiedoesnails! I was obsessed with her blueberry & daisy design, so I decided to do my own spin on it.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Essie First Base
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- OPI After Alter
- Essie Gel Couture Princess Charming
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Royal Hue
- Sally Miracle Gel Beatnik
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod!
- OPI Just Can’t Cope-acabana
- Cosmetics Arts Lime Green (no name)
- Essie Off Tropic
- NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
- NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush
How freaking adorable did these blueberries turn out? I never thought of doing floral & fruit, but it turned out so perfect.
This look was surprisingly easy to do—easier than I thought it would be—& the end result turned out beautiful. I don’t think that blueberries will replace my usual floral favourites, but it’s so much fun to switch things up once in a while! Because this is a look I definitely wouldn’t have thought up on my own, without a little encouragement!
How are we feeling about this challenge so far? Do you love these blueberry nails as much as I do? Let me know all your thoughts, & keep track of everyone’s nail art looks by checking out #glamnailschallengeaug on Instagram!
