Step Into Summer Challenge - Inspired by a Bathing Suit

Friday, June 28, 2013

Good morning! I'm continuing with another theme for the Step Into Summer Challenge hosted by the Hobby Polish Bloggers today. This theme is inspired by a bathing suit. I went to Google and searched for a bathing suit to draw inspiration from. I stumbled across this one that I really liked a lot.


Its so vintage and cute right? Let's see how it turned out on my nails!

Cherry Nails
American Apparel, OPI, China Glaze, dotting tool

For my base color, I used American Apparel Hassid. Taking OPI Ali's Big Break, I dotted on dots with my dotting tool to represent the cherries. Then with China Glaze Exotic Encounters, I used my dotting tool to create the stems and leaves. Seeing that the red I used wasn't showing up really bright, I took American Apparel Poppy and dotted dots on top of my previous red dots to make the color pop off the nails more.

I'm disappointed with how this turned out. This was such a fail manicure to me. The stems and leaves turned out really bad since I was using a dotting tool to create them. Not the best I've done but I gave it my best try. What do you think of this manicure?

  4. Cherries ♥♥ It's always a bummer when you picture something in your head and it just doesn't pan out in real life... I think this is totally cute, though.

  6. I think that this looks fab! I love that you didn't go with a traditional bright green for the stems, it creates a much softer look. :)

  7. Love the suit - I need to buy that. :P I don't think it's a fail at all! Maybe the leaves could have been a bit brighter of a green (not bright green though!), but other than that, I think it looks really well done!
