Hobby Polish Bloggers - Recreate Your Favorite

Here we are, the last day of May, and the last entry for my Hobby Polish Bloggers May Challenge!  Whew, I made it!

I've reviewed the entries, and have chosen my favorite to recreate. And the winner was The Polish Playground, inspired by nature.  *golf clap*

I suppose it's a dubious honor, since the only prize is to have me try and copy your work... 

Illamasqua Serenity.  I new I was a nail polish fanatic when I spent the time to figure out how to both spell and pronounce "Illamasqua".  Totally worth it.  I love this color, and I didn't know it was a rubber finish when I chose it for this challenge, but I likey!

Then, I added the cutest fluffiest clouds ('They're so fluffy, I could DIE!") with a dotting tool and Sally Hansen White Tip.

OPI Black Onyx.  Not the greatest black for nail art, it gets kinda goopy.  Some of my seagulls got a little stringy.  And nobody likes a stringy seagull.

So dreamy...

Hope I did Lisa of The Polish Playground proud with my rendition of her art.  If I were fishing for compliments in the comments, what would you write to me?

Can't wait to see what the other challenge participants create! 

Check out these other Hobby Polish Bloggers challenge manis!


  1. Haha you did awesome! I'm so honored and happy that you wanted to recreate my manicure too. You did it justice and I think you made your clouds even more cuter than mine :)

    1. Also, just wanted to let you know this manicure was beach inspired, not nature inspired. Though, it does look nature inspired doesn't it? lol.

    2. Aw, I'm so happy you like it! To be honest, I didn't make the connection between you and the pix until afterwards.. I just went through all the posts and picked my fave. So, it *really* was my fave! lol. And, uh, yeah, a beach is uh, part of nature, yeah! That's what I was going for. Oh, crap. I totally can't pull that off. Sorry! lol!

  2. Both hers and your manis remind me of just laying back on a nice day, cloud-watching. :D Good on both of you!


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
