The Digit-al Dozen: Soft Tie Dye Neon Flip Flop Nail Art

I am so pleasantly surprised at how much I like today's manicure! Recently on my Manicurity Facebook page I sneakily tried to ask for inspiration for my summer manicures by asking y'all to fill in the blank about "when I think of summer, I think of _____." A lot of you said 'neon', 'pedicure' or 'neon pedicure' and thus I was inspired to do this splodgy neon manicure with flip flop stamping :D

About the Design

I had contemplated painting tiny feet on my fingernails and painting on their little bitty neon toe nails, but I realized that I don't use my thematic stamping plates nearly enough. Thus this neon rainbow splodgy/tie-dye background + contrasty flip flop pattern was born!

The Polishes & Supplies

To get the fun neon base I first did two coats of Zoya Purity, my current go-to white creme polish. Then I dabbed little overlaping blobs of neon China Glaze polishes onto a makeup sponge before rolling it across my nails. The technique is similar to making a gradient but instead of mixing between two shades and blending it onto your nail, you blend the splotches of color together.

I used the flip flop pattern from a Bundle Monster set (the 300 plates) in Cult Nails Nevermore, and topped it all with KBShimmer Clearly on Top! Hooray!
