HPB Presents - A Starry Night in July

36 comments

Hiya guys. I'm feeling a bit better after taking a day off from everything yesterday. My hubs wanted me to get some rest, but I insisted that I needed some nail time. He ended up pulling out a table next to the bed and bringing me what I asked so I could do this mani. Such a sweetheart. Before I got started, I ended up filing my nails and went too far. Hence the nubs. Note to future self: please don't ever file your nails when you're sick. Anyway here's my mani for the July link-up 'Starry Night' presented by the HPB group.

While I do really love how this turned out, I wish I could of incorporated all the elements I originally wanted to. The transition from my head to reality isn't always a successful one, but I'm sure my fellow nail artists can relate haha.

The HPB group is short for 'Hobby Polish Blogger' group on Facebook. This group is home to veterans and novice blogger a like and the atmosphere is really friendly and inviting. Definitely recommend joining if you're a blogger yourself. We've been coming together and doing monthly link-ups the last few months and it has been such a fun experience.

For this mani I used three of my all-time favorite Zoya polishes from the blue color corner: Blu, Ling, and Ryan.  I preferred using acrylic paint for the black silhouette mountains and the white stars. Right before I was getting to take photos I quickly sponged on some Fairy Dust by China Glaze near the stars only. It added such a nice touch!

  10. I think it looks great, and I quite like this length- it's enough canvas to work with for something fun, and you've got nail beds I would kill for! Very well done!
