Hello lovelies & happy Monday!
Can you believe it — the last prompt of GlamNailsChallenge August! A whole month of fruit themed prompts. I won’t lie — I wasn’t sure I was going to make it to the end but we did it! & I’m feeling super proud of myself right now. & it was so much fun.
& now that we’re almost at the end of August, I’m really feeling those darker colours. Which, is perfect, because it’s the perfect base for our final prompt this month: Pear 🍐.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie First Base
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- Matte Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat
- Essie Carry On
- Essie Fall for NYC
- Sinful Colors Chamomile Calm
- Essie Wrap Me Up
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Grey Area
- Essie Get Your Groove On
- NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
- NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush
Oh man, I searched & searched & searched for Pear nail art inspo on Pinterest, but there was not much to choose from haha. So I decided my best option was just to wing it — & it worked out in my favour! I really adore the yellow-toned pears over this super dark vampy base. I actually forgot about this polish, even though it’s one I love to wear this time of year, so I was very happy to find it! It was the perfect base for my Autumn-y pears.
& thats it for this month’s challenge! I’ve had a lot of fun with this quirky prompts, & I think I’m going to maybe tag along for next prompts challenge as well — it really helps me with ideas of how to paint my nails, which I need sometimes!
