Ya'll!! It's Day 12 of the Flip/Flop February Challenge hosted by Jillian at Jilltastic Nail Design. Today's options were Drips or Matte - I chose drips...and then I matted them! First up, the glossy ones.
I am in such love with these nails. Up until now, I've been able to wear my designs for this challenge for 2-3 days, but alas, it has caught up with me and I can't wear them long anymore if I'm going to keep up with the challenge! So, over Saturday and Sunday I did about 6 different designs and this is one of the first ones I did because I thought I was going to hate them! And they ended up being my favorite ones!! Bah! I might have to do this one again for "recreate your favorite day".
I used 2 Color Club mini's for this design. I got both of them in a past Birchbox. I'm probably gonna need a full size of these - I love them both. The orange is Lava Lamp and the blue is Blue-ming. Lava Lamp is a true neon orange, slightly pinker than some of the other neon oranges I have, but not pink at all. Definitely orange. I LOVE neon oranges. Ok - I love neons period. Blue-ming is a bright, bright, minty, aqua. It is borderline neon. Super fun color. I love how well these played together!
Here is a photo of them matte - I used Sephora by OPI Matte Top Coat. I'm not sure which way I liked them better. What do ya'll think?
Since I did this over the weekend during the day - I was able to get a couple of sunlight pictures! I wish I could get these all the time! Forgot to get glossy sunlight pictures so, these are both matte. I've actually never worn any nails matte yet, but I think I would totally rock this look matte! I still like to put Seche Vite on the final design to let them dry fast and then on the matte top coat.
Tomorrow is Watercolor or Sponging - I'll go ahead and tell you, I'm not so thrilled with those as I was with these!
