Born Pretty Summer Nail Art Contest - My Entry #1

Hi there everyone :) Today I forced myself to have some blogging time (and do my nails) because I was informed of the Born Pretty Summer Nail Art Contest. I don't usually enter nail art contests because many of the entries are truly incredible and reach levels that I could only dream of. However, for this summer-themed contest I just had to try my hand at a design. You're allowed to enter two different manicures so this is manicure entry #1 for me and I used the oversized plastic-y nail decoration fruits that a lot of people love for inspiration. For me, summer is 100% about color and fun so I did a colorful summer time fruit manicure that, in my opinion, is absoFRUITly gorgeous.
For this design I used: China Glaze Tart-y For the Party, Zoya Mira, China Glaze Solar Power, Orly Hook Up, Icing Mint 2 Be, China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada, Finger Paints I Pink I Can, China Glaze Peachy Keen, and China Glaze OPI Flit A Bit.

If you're interested please click the banner that I added (upper left below my International Nail Polish Day banner) and enter! The rules are listed on that page but really all you have to do is follow 2+ options (Born Pretty twitter, facebook, blog, pinterest, etc), do a summer-themed manicure, and comment with a link. See? It's really easy!
