Look whose back! Me. Clearly….because this is my blog….anyways! I’m joining in on another challenge, guys! Why? Because, why not? I’m already slightly behind seeing as it started last Friday, but A for effort, right? Emiline from Nail Polish Society is hosting an ABC Challenge and it sounded like a lot of fun! I’ll be doing all my posts for this on Saturdays, so it won’t conflict with the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge but I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with each week. If you’re interested in joining, check out this page for more information.
Anywho, let’s get to the nails!
Here’s what I used:
I don’t really have a set way on how I’m going to do this challenge, for example only using polishes that start with the letter or painting different objects depending on the letter. But for my letter “A” manicure, I pulled out an old American Apparel polish and then topped it with some avocados! 😛 This laptop case was my inspiration.
- Start by applying two coats of Neon Blue (not actually neon, and a horrible stainer >.<)
- Then paint on the avocados with acrylic paint and the Pure Color #1. I found it easiest to paint the darker green first, and then go back in the with the lighter green, followed by the brown.
- Clean up.
- Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.
I’m seriously in love with these nails, guys! Avocados are one of my favorite things to eat (I mean they go with everything and it literally only takes five minutes to make avocado toast…hashtag lazy girl dinner,) and these just look so cute. The only downside to this manicure is the massive amount of staining I was left with from Neon Blue….shout out to American Apparel….but I enjoyed wearing these, so I guess I can semi-overlook the smurf nails. Let me know what you guys think!
Thanks for reading guys!
