Challenge Your Nail Art, Let’s Go Camping theme: Campfires

Today is the final day of the Let’s Go Camping challenge, and we are ending on a theme that makes a whole lot of sense for a camping challenge: campfires.  And what is the best way to enjoy a campfire?  Burning things!  I used to just set sticks on fire and run around with them when I was little.  Sign of a future pyromaniac?  Probably.

But no, really, I am almost positive that the first thing most people think of when given a campfire prompt is s’mores.  Or at least roasting marshmallows and possibly hotdogs.  So that’s what I decided to feature on my nails today.  A roasted hotdog and a s’more, plus the campfire itself and the smoldering ashes of the fire after it has burnt itself out.

I really like these!  The hotdog looks like it’s almost burnt to a crisp and the chocolate on the s’more looks slightly gooey but not melty.  Just how I like both of my campfire foods!  I am even pleased with how my ash and embers turned out, which is honestly a surprise because I sort of sponged colors on as fast as I possibly could  in order to go take pictures (I was racing the gray clouds in the sky).  I still think the hotdog is my favorite though.

The list of polishes isn’t quite as long today, but because there were a couple of mixes I’m going to break it down by nail.

Index: Kleancolor Concrete Gray, Model’s Own black striper, and a mix of Essie In Stitches and Kleancolor Brown

Middle: Kleancolor Concrete Gray, Kleancolor Tangerine Burst, Essie Meet Me At Sunset, China Glaze Orange Marmalade, Revlon Parfumerie Sunlit Grass

Ring: Kleancolor Concrete Gray, Kleancolor Tangerine Burst, China Glaze range Marmalade, FingerPaints Paper Mache

Pinky: FingerPaints Paper Mache, Zoya Louise, and a mix of Louise, Kleancolor Brown, and Maybelline Color Show Electric Yellow

Seems like a lot, but there quite a few repeat offenders in there.  🙂

I really had a lot of fun with this Let’s Go Camping challenge, and I am definitely looking forward to next month’s ‘Avast Ye Bilge Rats’ challenge!  It should be interesting to say the least.

As always, don’t forget to go check out the other submissions!
