Day 1 - Bees

Hi guys! Not sure why I haven't mentioned it much in my recent posts but today is the first day of the Summer Challenge created by two lovely ladies, Theodora from Red Hair and Black Nail Polish and Kaki from Glitter Obsession. They're both so sweet and have amazing blogs so if you don't know who they are already, I'd suggest you get your booty on over to both of their blogs.

So as you can see from the post title, the first day's challenge is Bees! I had the absolute perfect color for these nails and that is Not ya Honey! Honey! from Nail the B.Y.T.C.H. (full review coming soon!) I started with two easy coats of that for my base, then just winged it (no pun intended) from there. I freehanded the little bee on my ring finger first then decided I needed to add stripes, duh. I freehanded those on all of my nails except my ring and thumb. I totally screwed up my middle finger nail so decided to do something else instead of stripes. I added a black and yellow gradient to my middle finger and freehanded on little bee wings and stripes on my thumb. I used nail polish for everything.

Okay, so even I can see the lines aren't exactly clean or perfect but I'm still really happy with the way this turned out! I'm sure I'll have to revoke that statement when I see some of the other posts but right now I'm standing by it.

What do you all think of these bee nails? Be sure to keep checking back, there's a new challenge every other day until the 31st!
