Summer Fun Challenge, Fun In The Sun!!!

Hey guys! Here today to regretfully say that it's the last day (or post) of the Neverland Nail Blog's summer nail art challenge *womp womp* BUT I'm super excited to see what everyone has done! Today's theme is fun in the sun, anything goes!

The last few times that I've been in WalMart I've seen this pair of shorts, booty shorts that I would never wear mind you (well if I was skinny yea haha) but still. The print on them is very much me. I'm not sure if you guys saw the post last time where I got my idea from a piece of clothing from WalMart but if not, you can see it here.

For this mani I used OPI The Color of Minnie, Essie Orange It's Obvious, Wet N Wild How I Met Your Magenta, and Color Club Almost Famous. I used a makeup sponge to individually sponge on the colors randomly on each nail, it took a while but I think it paid off! After the sponging was done I used Sinful Colors Black on Black and a small dotting tool to draw on all of my leopard spots, covered with a quick dry top coat and done! Clean up was a bit of a pain because I was like my 2 year old coloring outside of the lines, but it's all good ;)

I'm still experimenting with my lightbox, the light filters, backgrounds etc, so be patient! Hopefully I'll have something set in stone next week on what I like best. The dark color seems to work better than white, so I think I'll be off to a craft store for black card stock!

Here's a pic with flash to try and show you a bit more of the difference with the colors :)

And here are the shorts that inspired this fun mani!

What do you guys think?

Until next time! Happy painting!

Pin It!
