The Lazy Days of Summer Challenge: Days 11 &12- Summer Days & Summer Nights

We are so close to the end of Summer, and for the sake of time, I've combined the next 2 Lazy Days Of Summer Challenges into one post.  It worked out well, since they go hand in hand- Summer Days and Summer Nights :)

So first, here is my take on "Summer Days". I sponged on some 'hot' colors (yellow, pink, orange) for this manicure, representing the hot summery days. I did an accent nail of 'cool' colors (white, teal, blue) to call to mind the cool relief of splashing in a pool or at the beach :)


Here's what I used:

And then for "Summer Nights", I wanted something that reminded me of a clear, star filled sky.  I used Essie Dive Bar as the base, then one layer of China Glaze "Fairy Dust" on top, then topped it all with Nubar "White Polka Dot":



Only 2 days of the challenge left!

  1. Your second mani threw me for a loop -- for a second I thought you reposted Revlon Sparkle Aplenty! Very cool though.

    1. It is a little similar! The blue based version ;) AKA, what I wish Sparkle Aplenty looked like on :)

  2. I really like the starry effect of the glitters in your summer nights. And the summer days warm colours really make me think of sweltering heat! Glad that's over xD
