Blueberries for Nail Narcotics Giveaway Challenge

Hi there!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!  

I have discovered a new blog I really enjoy!  Have you tried Nail Narcotics yet?

She has beautiful nails, and some mad skills which she displays on those nails.

She is hosting a fun contest which got my attention immediately, Food Themed Nail Art! 

For my entry, I pondered what would look delicious, as well as pretty on my nails. I decided in the end upon blueberries. They are wonderful to see, I enjoy the whitish powdery bloom on their skins and the little stars on the end.  I read once they are sometimes called starberries.  They are certainly stars of the nutrition world, and they are one of the only blue foods!

So without further adieu, here is my entry.





 These organic blueberries are the freshest, I put them on a blueberry milk background.  


Organic Blueberries in Blueberry Milk - Hand painted with nail polish and thinner.





 Colors used:

OPI A Grape Fit
NINA Ultra Pro Sailor
Sally Girl coconut scented mini in light blue for the highlights
China Glaze matte top coat on the berries only, to make them look more powdery.

Here is a link to the contest on Nail Narcotics so you can check out the entries and results for yourself.

I hope you have enjoyed the fruits of my labor.  Is that too corny?  Well, if it is, there is muffin I can do about it now.

I can't wait to see the other entries in this contest.  Good luck everyone!

    1. Hello there again my dear, so nice to see you here!
      Wat leuk!

      Thank you for visiting me all the way over here in California, and for the sweet compliments!

      I am, I am Dutch Crazy !!!! Completely, it is true! : ) Nuts for The Netherlands for sure! I can't help it. You as a nation are amazing. I could go on and on about it, seriously!

      Hugs to Holland -- Hup Holland ! Lucky you. Some of the sweetest things in life are from Holland, chocolate and cheese for two! If you ever eat a dark chocolate candy bar from Albert Heijn, I hope you can enjoy it enough for both of us.

      I hope you don't mind if I say Holland instead of The Netherlands, correct me if you do!
