Summer Fun Challenge! Day 1: Grill Master

I stumbled upon this nail art challenge late yesterday afternoon and asked to join in right away. I know it's last minute but I love challenges because they give me plenty of inspiration :)

I'm quite happy that this challenge won't be as intense as the 31 Day Challenge. It's sweet and simple. There will be 8 posts total, 2 per week for 4 weeks. The lovely Lindsey over at Neverland Nail Blog created this challenge. I'm a little late with this post, but from now my challenge posts will be on Tuesday and Thursday each week. And here are the themes:

To check out this challenge at any time you can click my new 'Nail Art Challenges' tab under my blog header and go from there :) 

So, today is Day 1: Grill Master! I have to admit I had a lot of trouble getting inspired for this mani. I resorted to google images and found this:

I used Finger Paints Paper Mache for my base. 
All the rest was painting using various nail art brushes and the following polishes:
Orly Coffee Break (Letters)
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed & Mellow Yellow (Flames)
& Finger Paints Black Expressionism (Outline)

Like I said, a little uninspired. Good news is I am looking forward to all of the other days of the challenge, I have all kinds of ideas running through my head. Stay tuned for Day 2 on Thursday :)
