Inspired by Nature
Today's nail challenge is inspired by nature. I chose this photo of a bamboo forest for inspiration.
I applied a base coat and then two coats of NYC Fashion Safari. This is the first time I've used this polish and I think I am in love. The formula is just perfect, thin but still opaque and a breeze to apply. It's a perfect nude shade for me and it's under two dollars.
I had originally planned to do some intricate sponging to create a sand and leaf look but I just ran out of time and ended up just shortening the process. I sponged the cuticle area with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Lickety-Split Lime. Then I stamped on the bamboo image from Bundle Monster plate BM424. After everything was fully dry, I topped it with a coat of NYC Grand Central Station.
This was definitely not one of my favorites but that's okay! At least I can check it off the list.
