Glam Nails Challenge August — Papaya

Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday!

It is Wednesday, right? Haha I’ve been so busy with work, I swear I’ve lost track of the days. But I DO know that it’s time to share prompt #6 for #glamnailschallengeaug: papaya.

Seriously, I’m loving this challenge for breaking me out of my normal comfort zone, because I never would have thought to ever create nails inspired by papaya otherwise. I was inspired initially by this Pinterest design, but decided to do my own spin on it. I like that it’s a cross between fruit & an abstract design.


For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sunkissed
  • Sally Hansen CSM Off The Shoulder
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Electri-Lime
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Blacky-O
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
  • NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush

First off, please excuse any hints of blue nail polish that stained the tips of my fingers. haha I dyed my hair blue last Thursday, but still had a ton of dye that was transferring my hands everytime I touched my hair — including my nails!

Second, I’m so excited with how freaking adorable this manicure turned out! Does it look like a legit papaya? I mean… maybe-ish. It’s an artistic representation at the very least. & I think they’re very cool! They are also very Summery & fun, which is perfect for these hot & humid days of Summer. Also after my previous manicure, I feel like I needed some brightness in my life!

What do you think about this papaya inspired look? Are you feeling the abstract vibes, or do you prefer a more literal design? Let me know down in the comment below!
