Back on Track! Summer Challenge Days 8/9

Hi everyone! Sorry I missed out on the last challenge post and this one is a bit late too, but here goes! So for day 8 the challenge was beaches so I thought I would do a gradient manicure that looked like the water kind of turning into the sand. Well I think the idea was okay, but the execution was a bit off...I had never tried the sponge method before and I guess I should have practiced a bit more before, but I sort of ran out of time. So here is my first ever attempt at a sponge gradient manicure.

I started off with two coats of Essie's "Coat Azure" and then sponged on Orly's "Nite Owl" for the sand color. Of course I now realize that to really do this right I should have put both the colors on the sponge so they blended a bit better. I think I will have to try this one again sometime soon and really test it out because I love the look of a good gradient manicure.

So now onto day 9, which was summer memory. Well my favorite part about summer is being able to wear flip flops. I also have a really cute pair with pink polka dots so this manicure is my memory of my flip flops. :-)

I started with two coats of NYC Color's "Sidewalkers", which is my go to favorite grey ever and then I used my trusty Jordana black striper for the thong part and then Essence's "Ultimate Pink" for the polka dots. Well everyone, I hope you at least slightly enjoyed these and I am oh so very sorry for being late with them, but I was having much too much fun in the sun with my friends and my sister for the past few days. :-) Until next time! Enjoy! :-)
