The Nail Challenge Collaborative - September 2016: Harvest Time

*purchased by me*

Hey there!  Today I have my first post for September's The Nail Challenge Collaborative Harvest Time theme. We have a lot of leeway with this months theme and can really do whatever we feel fits with harvest time. I'm excited for this prompt because I love fall! 

For this look I went with some simple acorns! Fall makes me think of the local animals looking for nuts and seeds to store for the winter so it's their harvest time!  I started with a base of two coats of KBShimmer Tiers of Joy which is a gorgeous cream color with gold, pink, brown, and holographic glitters.  It's such a pretty color and a great transition polish between summer and fall.  

Here is a picture of Tiers of Joy without the nail art so you can see how pretty the glitters are. 

I used acorn nail vinyls from What's Up Nails and KBShimmer Oh My Ganache to create the acorns. Oh My Ganache is a beautiful chocolate brown linear holo that I can't wait to wear on its own, but I thought would be perfect for this mani!  

Like I mentioned, I'm super excited for the harvest time theme!  I love my acorn mani and have so many other ideas for this month!  

What would you do for harvest time nail art? Any favorite fall polishes you can recommend for this theme?  

I hope you like my mani.  Please check out the other bloggers below.  Thanks for reading!

The Nail Challenge Collaborative - August 2016: Neon

*purchased by me*

Hey there!  Today I have my third post for August's neon theme for The Nail Challenge Collaborative.  I have had this saved for a while, but didn't have time to write a post so sorry I'm a little late.  

I started with a gradient using Philly Loves Lacquer "Blue Kids On The Block" and "This Lime Around" from The Bright Stuff, Baby collection.  I love this neon collection and have enjoyed doing gradients with the polishes.  They've been perfect for this month's neon theme! 

For my middle and ring fingers I decided to do some stamping using Zoya Ryan and Born Pretty Store BPL-024 stamping plate.  I loved the big flower design on this plate, and I think it turned out great!  

I have had so much fun with this month's neon theme.  I'm actually going to miss it.  September's theme is Harvest Time which should be fun too! 

I hope you liked all of my posts for August.  Which was your favorite?  What would you do for the Harvest Time theme?
