Agggghhhh I LOVED this mani n I couldnt take a proper pic of it to save my life! I used pastel neons (i thought they were just bright not neon) on a light base (Essie urban jungle) n my camera no matter what time of day or in what light, my camera could not handle it! U couldnt tell at all where the flowers started n base end n vice versa. Inspired by @lynieczka who used a dark base which i totally should have done. #nailart #floralnailart #floralnails #floral #nailartwow #nailswag #nails2inspire #nailpictures #nailporn #nailaddicts #nailaddict #nailartpictures #nailsofinstagram #instanails #nails4yummies #photofail #picturefail
I literally restarted/ logged out of everything n checked 3 times at least….I couldn’t believe it. If I never paint my nails again, Ill be happy (as if that would ever happen). In my mind Ive now made it lol (in my mind only)!!! #fangirl #fangirling #nailart #aprilannespolishedhands #chalkboardnails #yeayme #happy

Day 42 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile Challenge: Thr ugly duckling in a set. Well it took me 600 years but I finially went n finished this bloody challenge!! I dont think any polish in any set I own is ugly, so I took a bunch of polishes most ppl including my friend/baby sitter who leaves me notes about how ugly they r n made a mani. The colours reminded me of 70’s wallpaper, so I googled just that came up with this!! Untrieds used: 5. IF U WANT TO KNOW POLISHES USED JUST ASK!
*SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO OUR TALENTED NOTW CONTESTANTS*
A set I did on my baby cousin for a wedding. She requested blignailedit’s double accent nails. I’ve wanted to do these forever n am def doing a set for myself. Love how they turned out!
Day 41 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile Challenge - Dupes match an untried with a tried. I matched 3 including Pacific Blue the old better version with the better formula n better colour. I fell in live with sunset palm tree silhouette nails the very second I layed eyes on them, however, they were so over done I vowed Id never do them. LIES! I couldnt help it I had too and I’m VERY GLAD I DID! Untrieds used: 2.
Day 40 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile challenge - Your best granny colour. So this challenge contained a good 4-5 prompts that very well could have been “show me ur ugliest mani” and I was not about to do another. So instead, I went with the colour of granny panties, bras n knee highs….nude! Added a little neon n voila….not another horrid prompt after all! Mind my middle finger, I had a bad break the day before……these were also freehanded cause I didn’t want to tape! Untrieds used: 1. Only 2 prompts left….hopefully I finish them this wknd so I can get back to doing manis i love to do! Mind u this challenge has been great….Ive used sooooooo many untrieds and left my comfort zone several times! Have a looksie at what the other ladies did below:
Day 39 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile Challenge - Free Polish (you got it for free). Better late than never?!?! Lol the challenge is over n after I upload the next mani after this I’m still 2 behind…..hoping to get both done today. Anyways I was talking to my friend about this prompt n she told me not to use the polish I was going to use because nobody would believe me about how I came to own this polish. I dissagreed, even if u don’t believe me idc because its 100% the truth! The Sally Hanson in the middle I accidently stole from Walmart a few months ago. I was packing my car n when I took my son out of the cart there she was hiding under and inbetween my purse n him! Mind u I didn’t rush back in to give it back lol she came home with me. Believe it or not, its the truth!! Onto the mani, this is 100% not me….too dainty n not enough colour. Many ppl commented that they looked like wedding nails, whatever the case these were just meh for me and I only wore them for a day! Untrieds used: 3. Check out what the other ladies did below:
Day 38 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile Challenge - Polish who’s name you can’t pronounce - NONE!! DEAR LORD THIS WAS A HARD PROMPT!!!! It took me 3 days to go through all my swatchcicles and polishes and the closest I got was Delphinium wtf! So plan B, purchase one….yeah no deals nada, although I did find this beauty from Clairs n immediately had to use it! I can’t believe I’m gonna say this but I gave up!!!! Let us pretend that either I’m Addicted, Float On, Sun Upon My Skin, Be More Pacific or Festival Love cannot be pronounced…take ur pick!! Untrieds used: 3. P.S…I was calling think Rainbow Bright Barf but my friend said “OMG neon dinosaur eggs” PERFECT….I LOVE THEM regardless!!
Day 37 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile Challenge - Neon. This is my fav day, this is the day I’ve been waiting for most of all! Sooooo many options for this puppy, but I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I’ve had a bunch of Sally Hansen nail wraps forever, but I never use them because I think its cheating. However I have done a checkered pattern at least four other times so I know I can do it, I wanted to use them and so I did. I love this it’s bright and it’s crazy!!!! I also used false nails for the first time, it was a learning curve & took some bleeding and rotten wrecked nails but I’ve got it now and will be using more in the future as my nails do not grow. In the the off chance that they do, they break right away. I’m just praying my nails and cuticles will recuperate soon!! Untrieds used: 4.
Day 36 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile Challenge - Dirtiest Named Polish - Pussy Galore. So at first I thought at least a few other people would use Pussy Galore as their dirtiest named polish, but then on second thought who the hell would have this as an untried, it’s flippin gorgeous! I’ve wanted to do a cherry design for ages (I also very much want a cherry tattoo) and I thought it would look great over this soft pink, but in doing so, I lost a lot of the prettiness of this polish by covering it up and using top coat. Next time alone sans Sache Vite!! Untrieds used: 6.
Day 35 of Gnarly Gnails Neverending Pile Challenge - Gold. I used the Maybelline peach bleached neon for this mani n fml I COULD NOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO CAPTURING THE TRUE COLOUR!!! The greenish picture is pretty close to the actual colour, pay no attention to the rest of the picture!! I have all of the Avon crushed metals and Im extremely impressed…the kinda rock my socks! Inspired by @sloteazzy, untrieds used: 2. Have a look at the other golden manis below:
