Pink Lemonade nail art - Lazy Days of Summer Challenge

Hello all!
I'm back to my Summer Nail Art Challenge with the 9th theme - Thirst Quencher. I knew I wanted to do pink lemonade, in fact I have it in my fridge right now :) When I realized that I had a polish named pink lemonade, well...it was a no brainer. I tried using acrylic paint for the first time for the lemons. Not sure how I feel about using paints for nail art yet. I understand why they are used now, easy to work with...feel like I betrayed my nail polishes though! How funny is that?
Well, here it is!!



 I would be remiss if I didn't discuss how incredibly awesome this polish is, and ALL Smitten polish that I have tried so far for that matter! The photos without the lemons painted on are showing you 3 coats with no top coat. I wore this polish for a few days with 2 coats (and it looked awesome) before I had a chance to paint the lemons, so I added another coat of pink lemonade to make sure it looked fresh.






Did it work? Am I making you thirsty?It's not my favorite nail art that I've ever done, but I liked it :)


Here's a list of what's next!!


Check out all the other awesome ladies doing this challenge with me!! -- If I have forgotten to add you, please let me know and I will fix it!!



As always, thanks for reading!! See you next time :D
