Day 4 in the Summer Challenge house

Hey all!


Challenge four: Orange- Freestyle Day

So today I went for something pretty simple but I think it's nice and summer appropriate :P This came about from my previous manicure HERE but I think the dots masked the true beauty of this combination.

 I am in love with this like you would not believe. I knew I couldn't get away with a full orange manicure especially with the weather we've been having. Plus I am getting a tad self conscious about my nails after some recent comments on pinterest :(
This green will be perfect for St Patrick's day manicures. It is a light green creme but it does shift towards a darker forest green at night. As we are free to play with the polish on freestyle days I decided to re-do my previous mani without all the dots.

I have my usual stargazer 114 basecoat, 2 coats of Catrice Run Forest Run (green) with an accent of Nails inc Atomic also 2 coats(orange). You see how almost neon Atomic is? that is exactly how it looks in real life! Not a huge orange fan but this one is the perfect creme polish and I only paid like €6 in total for this and the other polish it came with (Nails inc OMP!).
 I will definitely be wearing this combination again. Both polishes are incredibly glossy on their own. I added a coat of Essence quick dry top coat only to keep any chips from occurring before I got around to taking pictures in the light :)

The challenge is going well so far so hopefully I can keep up until the end! Completing a nail polish challenge of this length would be great to tick off the bucket list :D




What do ye think? Have any of ye got these polishes?

  3. I don't know why people would be saying something bad about other people's nail art. I mean, one thing is if it's not down one's alley, that's fine. But it's not fine to make people feel bad.
    Just because you don't like a certain thing, it doesn't mean that it can't look good on others.
    So please keep up the good work! :)

    1. I know like it makes no difference to them what I have on my nails and how long they are. The fact that they would take the time to leave a comment criticizing everything with no bases really annoyed me. Thanks so much for your support x

  4. Please, don't let some stupid people ruin your mood or make you self-conscious!! Your nails are beautiful and your Nail Art is amazing! I mean come on! How many people could do Nail Art like you did on your Jeff Dunham Manicure?? Exactly! And even if a design isn't perfect, we learn new things every day and improve our skills. If they don't like it, they should shut up, but some people are just mean. Ignore them, ok? ;)
    And to go back to the topic: that orange is gorgeous!! Looks pretty as an accent nail ;)

    1. Thanks so much Theodora! I'm really glad other people understand how much I try to improve my nail art and I do spend a lot of time on each piece to make it as close as I possibly can. I didn't do much with this challenge but the next lot will be better :P

      Completely agree about the orange! So glad I picked it up :)

  7. It's sad that stupid people are showing up on Pinterest now.

    This combo reminds me a bit of a sports team, but I'm not awake enough yet this morning to remember which one. :)

    1. It was so nice at the start but people always have to show off their "superiority" after a while.

      I don't know any of the American teams but I can see how it would relate to them :P

  8. You're super brave to do a challenge! I somehow started a christmas challenge and failed miserably :(
    What have people been saying on PInterest to make you upset?? :( Honestly in blogland, I reckon if you don't have something nice or even something constructive to say, then don't bother posting it up. It's a waste of everyone's time! Don't listen to those horrible people CCL!!
    Also I reckon you should defs wear orange more. It looks great on your looong nails!

    1. Apparently my nails are disgusting and they would never have them like that. Always nice to hear "constructive" criticism :P

      I feel the same way like fair enough give an opinion but only if asked for one and only if you mean well.

      Awh thanks! I really like this orange so I think it will make quiet a few appearance in the future ;)

    1. Thanks Linzi. I feel a lot better about it now.

      Awh I know what you mean! I don't think many people actually got it. It was so hard to find a shop that had it in stock.
