Good morning lovers!
I've got more nail art to show you guys today! I'm so happy to be doing nail art again on a regular basis and I love all your amazing comments, it's great to know you guys appreciate what I'm doing. Thank you! I will try my best to keep posting as much art as possible! (And holy crap I have a lot of swatching to do too!)
Today's mani was inspired by a pair of flip flops!
Love! This color combo is kinda kooky but I really enjoyed wearing these nails.
As I said, they were inspired by flip flops! Here's a pic of the mani and the inspiration together:
We had these Billabong flip flops at the store I work in, and I knew they would make an awesome manicure. We sold out of my size before I could snatch a pair for myself, but I snapped a picture on my iPhone with them to make sure I could show you guys how good it matches!
(I was pretty impressed that I managed to match the colors so well, despite not having the flip flops for reference at home when I was doing my nails.)
The striped nails started with a base of Orly - Dayglow.
Dayglow was the white polish included in Orly's summer collection. It has blue shimmer in it but that doesn't really translate to the nail. I like the formula of the polish, it covers in 2 coats and it doesn't look chalky like some white polishes do.
I stamped the chevron image from Bundle Monster BM-201 on top of the white with Sally Hansen Insta Dri - Lickety-Split Lime. I love bright Insta Dri shades for stamping! They work really well.
The accent nail is Barielle - Do Unto Others, a great turquoise creme that covers in 2 coats. It does have a tendency to leave behind some blue stains though, so make sure to wear basecoat.
This reminds me, I have some Barielle swatches to post! Maybe tomorrow.
What do you guys think? Do you find inspiration in random things like flip flops?
Hope you have a great day!
