Summer Challenge Day 31: Recreate your favourite challenge


Summer Challenge Day 31: Recreate your favourite challenge

Today is the last day of this challenge! I’ve been through stuff that I thought I’d never do myself. (Half moons, water marbles and yellow polish, I’m looking at you!!). But it’s been fun. Some of the challenges have been pretty hard to come up with solutions for, but hey, that’s why they call them challenges.

So, today is the day that ends it all with a recreation of my favourite challenge.

It was a close race between two manis, but in the end I knew which one it was going to be. Have you guessed it already? I’m going to make the mani from day 21 again – inspired by a colour. Do you remember it? It was the day I let myself be inspired by a peacock.

So here we go again. I used Star Gazer 304 again, but this time I picked Maybelline mini Colorama “Electric Blue” for the other half of my gradient. I have so many blues in this shade that I don’t want any of them to feel left out!

Here’s my gradient – Star Gazer Bottle: 


 And here it is again – Maybelline bottle:



Perhaps you can see it’s a bit textured. That’s because of the sponging, and because I don’t have any top coat on yet. We know that there’ll be added glitter in a moment anyway!

Icing makes some gorgeous glitters, and “Lemme see your peacock” is definitely one of them. Clear base, loaded with green and magenta glitters! I dapped it on with the tip of my sponge – I still wanted my gradient to be partly visible.

Here’s the final result. The top coat is Poshé, my all time favourite!


And here’s a pic of the involved polishes:

Icing: Lemme see your peacock, Star Gazer: 304, Maybelline mini Colorama: Electric Blue

I’ve been in this challenge with other Danish girls, and I want to send a special thanks to all of them for taking the polish journey with me.Thanks girls, you're awesome!

Here they are:

That’s it. I’ve got another challenge in mind, but I’m not quite ready yet. I’ll keep you posted!

I hope you enjoyed my series of summer challenge manis.
