Glam Nails Challenge August — Lime

Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday!

I know I’m like 2 days late on this prompt, but it’s been a crazy couple of days. I’ve been feeling super blah, under the weather, & exhausted so my nails have been taking a hit. I was just not feeling inspired to do them, nor did I have the energy. But I really want to finish out the challenge this month, so I’m going to keep going.

& our next prompt is lime!


For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Sweet Pea
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Wet My Thistle
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
  • YSL Beauty Vert D’Orient
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
  • NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush

I won’t lie, I went pretty simple with this look but the overall look was achieved. Originally I had be planning on half moons on all my nails, but I like them being a bit switched up instead. The look is more varied, which is fun! You get those lime vibes.

Anyone in the mood for a margarita?

What do you think about these Lime inspired nails for #glamnailschallenge?

We only have 2 more prompts left after this for August? I can’t believe how quickly things are speeding by! We’re almost to September (& the Fall designs will REALLY) start!

Glam Nails Challenge August — Blueberries

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!
