Beginning June1st we are having a new challenge, the Summer Blogger Bragger Nail Art Challenge. It should be really fun the categories are broad and spark the imagination. I hope you will join us for some or all of this challenge. If you would like to join us for this challenge just visit us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloggerbragger/ and ask to join the group. The group isn't just for those in the challenge. If your just looking for a place to post your blog work, you can do that too. Here is the button for this challenge...
Pinterest, so I don't want to be accused of steeling an idea. Although I wish I had thought of it. I thought it was so neat looking that I HAD to try it. In person it looks so incredible. My boyfriend was blown away and kept wanting to touch my nails.
I used Sinful Colors Sail La Vie topped with OPI Matte Top Coat. Then I put on drops of Gelish Top It Off and cured it for twice as long as usual since it was thick.
Today's pink polish is from the Morgan Taylor Cinderella collection that came out this spring. The topper I used came from the OPI Wizard of Oz collection that came out a couple of years ago. I painted the daisies with acrylic paint. This is a simple design but I like it a lot.

Pinerest. It was teal and copper, but I thought I try it with pink. After all, they often call copper "pink gold". I put the copper polish on with the saran wrap method. However, I used a piece of plastic grocery bag because I read that it works better...and it did!
OPI Infinite Shine 2 was released a couple of months ago. But I thought I'd show you a few of the new line anyway. This polish last longer, has a gel-like shine but removes like polish. I found the colors I got to be superb. I like this line very much!
I got four polishes an orange (Endurance Race To The Finish), a bright pink (From Here To Eternity), a blurple, not quite blue, not quite purple, (Indignant Indigo) and a lime green (To The Finish Lime!).

This challenge is easy. It is about types of polish, but the polishes can be designed in any way you'd like. Add to them to them to your hearts content.
We are having a really fun challenge for summer that starts the first week of June. You are also invited to join us for that. The challenges are here:

Zoya Caprice is a dark pink. It almost looks red in this nail art. But in the bottle I was sure it was a dark pink. On the accent nail I paired it with an evergreen to simulate grass and it almost makes this design look Christmas-y. Ultimately, I wanted to try incorporating these little studs, which I have had for a while but never used.

Jessica, which has been around for a long time but they have a new shiner, long lasting polish called Phēnom. It has a gel-like finish, but removes like polish. It competes with products like OPI's Infinite Shine.
I got the starter kit, plus a couple of extra which just meant that the top coat was included. Three polishes were included in the starter kit and I purchased two more. I got an orange (Luv You Lucy), a pink (Barbie Pink), a purple (Grape Gatsby), a wine red (Parisian Passion) and a blue (Fountain Bleu).

Zoya to get the beautiful color. The contents of the box are at the end of this post.
I am going to start making my own polish too, which will take some of my time. I realize that indie polish making is competitive, but it is something I'd like to do.
The following will be my schedule starting this month:
- Monday: Swatches and Review Mainstream or Indie
- Wednesday: Pink Wednesday
- Friday: Nail Art and Blogger Bragger
- Saturday: The Beauty Blogazon Roundup
- Monday: Swatches and Review Mainstream or Indie - I am planning to swatch and review a selection of Jessica's new Phenom polish.
- Wednesday: Pink Wednesday - For "Pink Wednesday" the polish I've selected is Zoya Caprice.
- Friday: Nail Art - The nail art I have chosen to do for you is spotted in matte. Blogger Bragger - The "Blogger Bragger Spring Nail Art Challenge" started a few weeks ago. I invite you all to join in the fun. This week's theme is "Satin". This is my nail challenge and anyone is welcome to join. Just visit us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloggerbragger/ and ask to join the group. You are also welcome to join us if don't want to participate. You don't even need to be a beauty blogger!
- Saturday: The Beauty Blogazon Roundup
