ASBMF Challenge: Day 9 - Fresh Cut Lawn

If you didn't notice yet I am actually completing 2 Challenges at the same time, ASBMF and Summer Challenge.  I also signed up to start another summer challenge that starts June 20.  After figuring out how many challenges are left in ASBMF I would end up doing 3 challenges at once!  That's a bit much!  I decided that I would double up on ASBMF so that I finish it before the next challenge. You will probably see another ASBMF challenge either on Sunday or Monday, let's see how the weekend goes! :)

Back to this challenge! Today I was supposed to interpreta  fresh cut lawn on my nails.  If you are following some of the other lovely ladies completing this challenge you would see some awesome fresh cut lawn designs.  They really upped the bar for me!  I decided to use my new striping skills and portray a yard scene on my nails.  I think it turned out pretty cool!

I started by applying 2 coats of Essence You Belong to Me.  I think that my bottle is going bad because it applied streaky and took so long to dry that I ended up applying SV so that I could start my taping! Bad bottle! (In my most motherly tone!)

For step 2, one at a time, I taped off each finger in order to apply my "grass".  Painters tape is not the best tape to use, because its not sticky enough, but I bought a roll so I fell obliged to use it!

Step 3, I applied my grass using Sinful Colors Nail Art in Jungle and Color Club Art Club in Mint.  All I did was add layers in order to build up the grass.

For step 4, I used my dotting tools to add the clouds, NYC French Tip White, and sun, Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine.

Lastly, I topped it all off with 2 coats of SV.

I really like my little yard scene.  I thought about adding a lawn mower, but I don't have those mad skills, yet!  I really like my grass!  So cool!! :)
