Summer Fun Challenge Day 8 - Fun in the Sun

Hey all!

Today is the last day of the Summer Fun Challenge by Lindsey at Neverland Nail Blog. Special thanks and many props to her for putting this together! The rules today were basically no rules. Anything summery goes today so I recreated a summer fave of mine.

You may remember this ancient post where I swatched China Glaze Sun-Kissed and Spoiled I'm So Jaded and said it was the base for some awesomeness. Well I never found those pictures so I just recreated the mani for today's challenge. This also features my first and only (so far) indie polish!

Wee! I have Dandy Nails Colorblind² over each of the polishes and I just freehanded the diagonal stripes with the same polish brush. It turned out to be a little difficult because of the huge Spoiled brush and, even so, every nail ended up looking super thick in the end (totally thought of Linkin Park there).  I got the idea for this mani from this post from Rebecca Likes Nails. Now I that I re-look at hers, it was so clean and crisp...makes me sort of hate mine. Anyway, I seriously need Sticks 'N Stones in my life.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this challenge as much as I have! As always, remember to check the other ladies' blogs for their awesome work!


  1. I swear the first indie polish I buy will be a black and white glitter! I'm diggin these. I think the only reason it doesn't look as crisp to you as your inspiration is the colors you used. Hers contrast a bit more and with neon green/yellow they can kinda blend around the edges without meaning to. Mmmm, Sticks N Stones *drool*

    1. True. When I wore these I actually did it with tape, so it looked a little more crisp, though they were still thick as hell.

      I need MOAR black and white glitter! I was undecided in getting this one or the original Colorblind but the squareness won me over.

  2. I am loving this mani. Great color combo!

    I think your blog is fantastic, so I nominated you for an the Liebster Award and Tag...details at:
