Summer Fun Challenge Day 1 - Grill Master

What is this?! Me posting on a Tuesday?! ANARCHY I TELL YOU!

I'm back with another challenge, this time thanks to Lindsey at Neverland Nail Blog! This go around it's called the Summer Fun Challenge and we're kicking it off with 'Grill Master'. I still haven't decided if I'm going to post daily on the regular but, for the time being, you can expect daily weekday posts from me since we will be posting challenges Tuesdays and Thursdays and I will keep my regular posts.

I have to admit I completely forgot about this challenge until tonight when I saw the email, so I took inspiration for this mani from my dinner! I made some pan seared salmon with white rice and some vegetables. Was all that necessary? Probably not.




So I took the salmoniest color I could find (Essie's A Crewed Interest) and did some grill marks on my salmon and for my accent nails I just did the actual grill. Now that I'm typing this I'm coming up with cool and different ideas I could have done instead but I kind of like the ones I have! They're kitschy. I don't think that's an appropriate word but I've never used it before. As always with freehand stripes, mine are not perfect but, when I tried to do this with striping tape, it looked too neat. I like the more organic feel of these.

Here's what you can expect during the rest of this challenge:


And here are the lovelies participating:




I hope you guys enjoy this and have a good day!

    1. Thank you! That's what my friend said when she saw them too. I had to explain about the challenge and the idea and she just said "Oh, I just thought they looked cool". She's not a very enthused person :P .

    1. I'm with you, just too lazy to check my bookmarks and stuffs. I'll send you some salmon if you want. Just don't eat it, you might die and if you die you can't paint your nails and if you die I will have no fancy cats to thank for compliments.
