Summer Challenge: Day 6 - Summer Sunrise

Woo Hoo...Day 6...only 60 more challenges!!  ;P

Today's challenge is all about sunrise.  To be honest I was kind of nervous about this challenge because I wasn't sure how I was going to pull this off and have it look good.  It was actually a lot easier than I thought!

I started with 2 coats of Essence Wake Up.

Using a eyeshadow applicator, my new favorite method of sponging!, I sponged on Zoya Pippa.

I added some trees using Essence Black is Back and RA115Black is Back is awesome for stamping!

Using the eyeshadow applicator again and Black is Back, I sponged the tips to look like land.

I topped it off with 2 coats of NYC.   Which I am not happy with right now!  I really need to find a new top coat!

I think it turned out looking like the African plain.  I love it!

  4. Wow! I am going to have to get some Essence Black is Back because I cannot find a good stamping polish, and also cause I love Essence! Nice job on the nails!

  5. That is awesome! You're so good!!! :)

  6. How fun! This reminds me of The Lion King.

  7. I like this. It's very pretty. I agree with Stephanie it does remind me of the The Lion King.

  8. So gorgeous! I swear, "The Circle of Life" was quietly playing in my head as I was scrolling through your pictures!

  9. wow, nice gradient! great color combo! reminds me of the lion king, lol, good job! : )

  10. I agree with all of you, it's very The Lion King. LOVELY ♥

  14. Wow. You have incredible patience!!! BTW - how do you find the formula of Essence Minis? I tried my first one recently and it wasn't a happy experience:(...*sad face*

    1. I am very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with Essence. It's one of my favorite brands! Typically they are a nice, thick polish perfect for nail art. I have had a couple that were a tad streaky but other than that I love them! :)

    2. Good to know. This one was a duochrome mini - could have just been a dodgy batch:)

  15. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
