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.
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.
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.
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!
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. We’re currently experiencing a big time heat wave here on the East Coast, but thankfully my work had the air conditioning cranked which kept my from completely melting into a big puddle. I love heat, but man the humidity is not my friend.
Today we’ve got the next prompt for Glam Nails Challenge August is grapes! I decided to go with a darker grape inspired look & created my grapes on my two accent nails.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Essie First Base
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Pat on the Black
How cute are these grape accent nails? I actually love how they turned out! I was inspired by this Pinterest design I found, originally done by @nailsbydaniellet. I (think) hers were supposed to be blackberries, haha, but I didn’t realize until after she inspired by grapes. I do think they turned out super cute, & all my coworkers knew exactly what they were, so I’ll take that as a win!
What do you think about this grape inspired look? Are you following along with #glamnailschallengeaug on Instagram? Let me know what you think of the designs so far this month. I can’t believe we’re already half way through the month — that’s crazy!
It’s Swatch Sunday, & even though I hear the faint call of pumpkin spice, I’m keeping summery with some beautiful new shades from Sally Hansen Miracle Gel — the new bigger & better neon collection! These shades were gifted to me in an absolutely amazing PR package that not only contained the six new neon shades, but also a bottle of Get Mod, to wear under the polishes, a bottle of Miracle Gel Shiny Top Coat, a cute neon purse, gummy worms, & an adorable personalized bracelet!
The new neon collection contains 6 shades: Sun-shine On, Squeeze the Day, Electri-Lime, Floresc-Pink, Feelin’ Grape, & Chill Out. For my swatches I applied the polishes over a base of Get Mod, excluding my ring finger, so you could see how it looks applied without some white undies.
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Hope everyone’s week is off to a lovely start, & not nearly as ungodly humid as it’s been in Halifax lately. Today we’re sharing another fruit inspired design for GlamNailsChallangeAugust.
Today’s prompt is coconut, which I’m going to be honest was a prompt I was super nervous about. Even browsing Pinterest was not super useful, as mostly what popped up with some kind of nail art stickers. But I did find this pretty coconut look originally done by @Nailstorming, & I thought it would be a fantastic look to give my own attempt to.
I’m not going to lie, a lot of polishes went into trying to create this coconut. & I thought I used a lot of nail polishes when creating floral!
But, you know — it was to totally worth it because my coconut drink turned out awesome! It totally looks like something you can sit back & relax, drinking on some tropical beach. Or, what I picture someone would sit back & drink on a tropical beach, as the closest I’ve come to a tropical vacation is lounging in an inflatable kiddie pool in my backyard.
But you know what I mean.
What do you think about this coconut nail art look? It was fun going from a more abstract interpretation to a more literal one, even if I didn’t think I was going to be successful haha. Are you following along with #glamnailschallengeaug on Instagram? I hope you’re enjoying seeing all these looks as much as I’m enjoying doing them!
