Summer Challenge Day 1 - Bees

Theodora from Red Hair and Black Nail Polish and Kaki from GlitterObsession  put together a Summer Challenge for the month of July! They came up with some fun ideas and it's an every-other- day nail art challenge. I'm pretty excited as this is going to be the first nail art challenge I do where I have a deadline. I'm not very good at those when it comes to nail art (I'm sure you have noticed my Copy Cat Sat's are Copy Cat Sun's a lot of the time), so we'll see what happens. :)

Day 1 (July 1st) is Bees. Here is my take on Bee Nails.
So what do you think? I didn't even know where to start on this one, but I always like to use new polishes that I haven't tried yet. This time I started with Sally Hansen Pixel Pretty for my base - it was one of my only untried blues, so I felt the need to use it.  After that, I painted on my flowers and bees with a small paint brush and my new dotting tools. I used so many colors for this, I'll just list them out:
  • Sally Hansen Pixel Pretty
  • Pure Ice Super Star!
  • Sally Hansen Lite
  • Spoiled I Only Eat Salads
  • NYC Taxi Yellow Creme
  • NYC Uptown
  • NYC High Line Green
  • Spoiled Pretty In Punk
  • Julep Brooke
  • Priti NYC Red Ace Rose
  • Salon Perfect Tangy Tangerine
  • COS BAR (no name purple)
  • Pure Ice Black Rage
Here is a photo of Sally Hansen's Pixel Pretty all by itself.
