Here we come, the final day! Last theme is to recreate the fav mani from other’s past work…which is really hard to choose. All are definitely awesome and great, I couldn’t select just ONE from them!! But then I found that there’s really “beloved” pattern which was supported by many people - “ants on red check blanket (picnic theme)” and “watermelon (picnic + fruit theme)” - but NEVER done by me; OK why not these!?

Just for fun I combined both, so finally it went like “ants gathering around to suck watermelon during the picnic”. It’s pretty typical thing you can see in the summer while you eat outside, no!? :D

So after all…I’d like to summarize all my mani I did in one month here. I’m a bit sad now but also kinda bit proud of myself, just because I MADE IT! As you can see in my preview, I was sooooooo nervous before starting this because I didn’t have so much experience for nail art, but…I’m feeling bit much easier for nail art creation, I can see the door is wide open than before.

It was very, VERY fun opportunity to have, thank you so much for Kaki and Theodora for planning this awesome challenge, and also thanks a lot for girls who ran for a month together, it was really great occasion!! I hope I can join to same kind of challenge someday, but well, now it’s the time to rest… ;)

さて長かった1ヶ月が経ち、ついに夏チャレ最終日ですよー!テーマは「あの人のあのネイルをもう一度」!……なのですが1つだけなんて選べるワケねーじゃん、ということでここはひとつ「皆大好きこの柄よく見たよねネイル」と称して自分なりにアレンジしてみたのが今回のネタであるところの「赤白チェックの上に蟻」+「スイカ」です。
前者はピクニックをテーマとしたときにやたら出ましたな。蟻だけとか赤白チェックだけとか含めたら11人中5人がこれを取り上げていたという。何で蟻?と思わんではないですがアートネタとしては面白いかなと。後者はピクニックのときに4人、フルーツのときに8人とかアンタらどんだけスイカ好きなの!?くらいの支持率で吃驚したものです(←スイカ嫌い)。まあそんなワケで両方混ぜてみましたよ、と。どうせならと蟻をリアル路線にすべく頑張ってみましたが如何か。蟻や蜂はリアル系のがカワイイと思うのですけれども。そしてポスカ今回も大活躍!特に白黒インクは超使えますな!インクだけ出ないかなーでも乾いちゃうから無理かなーとか思っているところです。
さて1ヶ月ぶっ通しでネイルアート三昧してみましたが如何でしたでしょうか。馴染みの薄いテーマや「お互い被ってねーか」テーマもあったりで毎回頭から煙が出るくらい悩んだり土壇場でデザイン変更したりでいろいろ大騒動だったのですがどうにか1ヶ月やり切れて満足です。しばらくはアートはもういいかなー……といいたいところなのですが実のところ大変だったのと同じくらい楽しかった!特にポスカアートは何かハマってしまいそうだ!ということでまた懲りずに爪にお絵かきしてると思います。趣味なんてそんなもんだよねー!!<誰にいうとる誰に

  3. ほんっとにすごい!!!
    リアルなアリが効いてて、
    めちゃめちゃセンスのいいネイルアートだなぁ、って思いました。

    ちなみに私もスイカ嫌いです(笑)

    いやぁ~、しかし、この夏チャレの1ヶ月、
    存分に楽しませていただきました。
    ほんっと、ええもん見せてもらいました☆
    ありがとうございました♪
    来年もぜひ★
    そしてお疲れ様でした!!

    1. 有り難う御座います!蟻かなり頑張りました!wスイカが頑張れていないのは苦手過ぎるからです!!ww<おい
      いやはやしかし過ぎてしまえばこの1ヶ月あっという間でした。ホロ無いラメ無いストーン無いアート資材何も無いからスタートして、一部買い足しつつ基本あり物で頑張ってみて意外とどうにかなるもんだということが解ったのが収穫でしょうか。楽しんで頂けたなら本望です☆
      来年は違うパターンで出来たらいいな、あるいは冬にまた何かやるかなと思いつつ……(^ω^)

  5. I love that you decided on a theme rather than a specific manicure. Genius!! You did such a good job. Your manis have been amazing and I can't wait to see more nail art from you! Maybe another challenge later in the year. But right now, I agree, let's rest!!

    1. You can call me as "diplomatic" too :P
      Well because all the mani looked just awesome, so awesome, no way to choose only one... ;)
      Thanks for great opportunity, hoping for your next challenge; I'd like to join it again!!
      ...But just after the small break, of course :P

  6. I still just can't decide if this is my favourite or this one with the swimsuits. The other one was so precious and classy and simply beautiful and unique.
    This one here is in a way simpler but wow the ants look so real and cute and I do have a really big thing for animals who are overlooked or not really liked in real life.
    And yes, it does look real picnic-y after all!

    1. Thanks!!
      Actually making real as my taste; I thought it'll be much cute with "real" ants rather than characterized/modified one, so I'm happy that you liked it <33
