After the April challenge which I only participated in a few times a week rather than every day, I was going to have a break from challenges, but then I saw this one: the Around the World Challenge hosted by Guilty as Charged and it sounded like a lot of fun, plus it’s only once a week. I’d thought about doing a series of designs based on countries around the world as I love travel and learning about other cultures, so this one seemed perfect for me. There’s also a fantastic giveaway associated with this challenge, so even more reason to participate!
Anyway, the first in the challenge is New York. I’ve never been to New York, but the city’s famous skyline was the first thing I thought of for the design. I saw a lot of beautiful sunset over the New York skyline pictures when I did a google image search so decided to do a sunset gradient. It turned out a bit too bright and tropical, but never mind!
I used: Mellow Yellow – Sally Hansen, Papaya Punch – China Glaze, Westferry Circus – Nails Inc, black acrylic paint.
This looks great! Very cool idea! The colors really look like a sunset and the detail you did with that black acrylic paint is awesome!
Thanks, glad you like the sunset – I was worried it was a bit too bright.
This is amazing! I will look forward to your other designs. I’m in a challenge so I better not do two at a time. But i will live through you hahaha and see what things you paint
Thanks! It’s only once a week so not such a big commitment!
Yes but I have my finals exams and lots of stuff. Maybe I’ll try it when I finish the semester
Ah, nevermind. Good luck with your exams!
Thank you 🙂
THAT IS THA BOMB! Seriously – way cool.
Thanks!!! Quite an easy one to do too.
Really ROCKING nail art…love your imagination!
Thanks! I enjoy having something creative in my life!
