On to the nails! The theme for Day 10 is "Recreate your favorite." One of my favorite manis of the challenge was Erica's polka dot manicure on Day 2. She used one of my current favorite polishes: China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, which was also a selling point that I needed to recreate this mani!
For the alternating polka dots, I used Sally Hansen Hard As Nails White Tip for the white dots, and Maybelline Denim Dash for the blue dots. On a side note, I can't wait to do a full mani with Denim Dash! It's a gorgeous dusty blue with lots of silver shimmer. In a few of the shots, you can actually see a bit of the shimmer in the blue dots.
For some reason, my camera didn't really want to pick up of the true neon goodness of Flip Flop Fantasy. It came out sort of peachy is most of my pictures. You will note that in some pictures, like the ones above and below, the brighter neon color is more evident.
In my opinion, I actually had a lot of good shots of this manicure, unlike some of my more recent ones, so there are a lot of pictures. I think the next one down is my favorite though. :)
Yay! I have completed my second nail art challenge. I'm so glad I'm participating in these challenges because it's forcing me to try and learn the techniques that I'm sometimes too scared to try. Or have failed horribly at and don't want to try again (like water marbling). Anywho, make sure to check out what everyone else did for today's challenge!
