Let's Go Camping - Under The Stars


Hello, Fireflies!

This month's Challenge Your Nail Art challenge is short and sweet - three days of camping-related manis.

I've never been camping.  I used to think I wanted to try camping, and then I remembered how much I hate mosquitoes, but how much they love me.  Or that I like Western-style toilets.  And A/C. And real showers.

I do love the idea of a dark night with a bright moon and a mist of fog, so that's what I tried to depict on my nails.


I started out with Darling Diva Polish What You Do For Money Honey, a dark green jelly with lots of gold shimmer.  This jelly is a little tricky - took me 4 coats to get it opaque, and it never really dried. This one gets undies next time.


I painted a moon with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls with some shading of Dance Legend Grey Britain.  For the mist, I dabbed on a little One Direction NaNaNa and Sally Hansen Triple Shine Great White.

Sure, camping under the stars sounds romantic, but room service sounds nicer!  Do you like camping under the stars?

  11. Love the galaxy look you got with Na na na. I never thought to use it this way, but now I'm going to have to. While I'm also all about the room service I do love my camping trips too.
