Happy Friday! I am super excited for the weekend since it's a three-day weekend with Memorial Day on Monday. We're having a cook out on Sunday with family, but otherwise no big plans, which is always nice. Today I have this week's installment of #WNAC2015 with the prompt of neon gradient. Since I also did a gradient in my tribal mani for week two, so I wanted to be sure to do something a little more involved than just a plain gradient.
For this mani, I started with a base of China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. Flip Flop Fantasy is probably my favorite neon polish that I own, and also the first China Glaze polish that I purchased. I then did a gradient of Flip Flop Fantasy with elf Mango Madness. Even though it appears more red in these pictures, Mango Madness is definitely orange. I currently have Mango Madness on my toes, and once I did the gradient on my nails, you never would've guessed they were the same color. Must be something about Mango Madness being layered over Flip Flop Fantasy.
I actually wore the gradient on its own to work yesterday, where I accidentally matched my outfit to my nails. I wore a coral shirt that was definitely almost the same shade (except less neon) as Flip Flop Fantasy. So last night, I added the finishing touch by stamping using Born Pretty Store plate QA88 and Sinful Colors Black on Black.
I really love this mani. It might possibly now be beating my tribal mani as my favorite from the challenge. Next week's prompt is water marble, which will definitely be a challenge. There has only ever been one water marble on the blog, since I have yet to master the skill. Anywho, I hope everyone has a great weekend, and be sure to take a moment to be thankful for those that gave their lives for our freedom.
