Last Lazy Days of Summer

Yesterday's FB Adventures in Stamping Challenge was Pulsating Pink or Purple.  I've been having some fun on the board the last couple weeks and when I seen the three options this week, which were Pulsating Pink or Purple, Obnoxious Orange or Last Lazy Days of Summer...well, I voted for last lazy days of summer as I've reallyyyy wanted to do a summer mani....just needed a little incentive!  When it wasn't the winner, I said I'd be doing a Pulsating Pink and Purple, with Obnoxious Orange, Last Days of Summer mani....and I did!  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of Orly Wet Your Popcicle (thumb), Orly Beach Cruiser (index and ring) and China Glaze Under the Boardwalk (middle and pinky).

Stamped using CH36 (sunglasses on index, sun image on a few different fingers), SdP 57 (beach theme on middle, fish on index, butterfly on thumb), SdP 75 (bare feet and boat on thumb), Soft stamp A30 (swimsuit on ring) and SdP 1 (ice cream on pinky...except I took small brush and removed face image before I stamped it so it was just a plain ice cream cone!)

Added random dots throughout using the same three polishes.  I double dotted most of the dots so they would be more opaque and visible.

As bright as this is...and it IS bright, I thought it needed a pop of colour.  I remembered that I had been ROAK'd a bottle of FUN neon yellow stamping polish with my FUN plate and polish added a few random dots using it.

Topped with SV.

I sure hope that there's more summer yet over the next few weeks...but if not, this may be one of the last lazy days of summer mani's indeed!

Thanks for looking!


  1. This is the perfect last days of summer mani, the pink and stamps for summer and the orange and purple for autumn! The little feet and ice cream are so cute :)

  2. I'm so glad summer is ending-I'm a fall winter girl myself-but damn girl this is BRIGHT!!! But awesome of course!

  3. Such a cute mani! I'm so sad that summer is ending - I'm so much happier when the temperatures are warmer and I can actually enjoy the outdoors.
