OMD Rather Awesome Challenge: Day 26 Vacation

Good morning! I woke up to no cereal or milk in the house 😦 So it was hot cereal for me this morning – and that’s not something I usually enjoy in the summertime. Oh well, it was better than having to go to the store right out of bed!

Today’s nails were to be inspired by a holiday or a vacation. I decided to do a fairly simple manicure based on a vacation I took 5 years ago. For my 30th birthday, my husband, our almost-2 year old (at the time), and I decided to go to Glacier National Park. (All following photos of GNP are my own and not stolen from the internet!)

Glacier National Park

We stayed at an absolutely gorgeous bed & breakfast just outside the city of Kalispell, Montana called Emerald Sunrise B&B. It was in the middle of a forest, right on the edge of a dark green lake (Ashley Lake). I remember so many beautiful things about that trip, but the beauty of the forest and the lake was one of them.

My manicure today is based on the lake and the forest. (Perhaps another time I will attempt to capture the beauty of Glacier National Park!) I’ve used Sinful Colors Calypso and Nail Junkie. I started off with 2 coats of Calypso:

I then followed up with Nail Junkie in a gradient (sort of). Then I topped with Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food, and since I liked it so much like that, I left it.

What do you think? Be sure to check out the rest of the manicures by clicking here. I’ll have a review of 4 of Mentality polishes up later today, until then,
