Summer Fun Challenge Day 5 - Are We There Yet?

Good morning!

Sorry I kinda disappeared on you for a couple of days, I know I missed a Monday fail but, aside from the exhaustion I was feeling, I also had a pretty busy weekend. I do have some exciting stuff lined up though so stay tuned for that!

Today we have day 5 from Lindsey's Summer Fun Challenge. I can't believe it's almost over, just 3 more manis to go after this one! Nevertheless, we live in the present, not the future or past. Unless you're watching a sci fi movie, then it's ok.

So, for a while, I didn't really know what to do for today. Instead, I kept remembering Kelly's (Nailpocalypse) mani about her road trip and thinking "Why can't I think of something like that?!". Then, I got to thinking what a road trip meant for me and I remembered the famous landmark here in Puerto Rico which you always see: las Tetas de Cayey! Or, in english, Cayey's boobs. In short, they're two mountains that sorta look like boobies, so that's what we call them.We're a very simple and happy people. If they look like boobies, that shall be their name.


I swear I wanted to post this on a Monday fails, but I didn't have time to redo it, so I apologize to your eyeballs. I first did the sky, some sponging for the clouds and I got to work on the mountains. I combined about 4 different greens and sorta applied them all haphazardly thinking that would make it look more like a mountain. It did not. Then my mountain shape got all blobby and unrecognizable. I then freehanded little border around to simulate a car window. Finally, I did the '52' on my thumb since that's the road that takes you through there. At least my numbers are acceptable, but the rest? Blegh.

Here's a pic of the mountains for reference:

Sorry to be such a downer and if you want to see some better manis, check the Inlinkz collection below!


  1. Love it! It reminds me of Sequoia National Park (I'm about an hour from there), gorgeous!

  2. Dude... you win hands down for having boob mountains on your nails. It's way more road-trippy than mine. Plus they're BOOB MOUNTAINS.

    1. Exactly! I thought if the mani was a fail at least the story behind it was interesting!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I really cherish each and every piece of feedback I might get.
