Neon Flowers

Today's mani is inspired by YouTuber The Crafty Ninja. I liked this color combo so much I had to recreate it! The base color is Pure Ice - Kiss Me Here and the flowers are China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy. I've had Flip Flop Fantasy for months and I'm pretty sure this is my first time using it. It's super bright! In The Crafty Ninja's tutorial she also used Kiss Me Here but used Salon Perfect - Flamingo Flair as her flower color; this color is totally a dupe for Flip Flop Fantasy if you can't find it or want to save a few dollars.

I used the largest (I think) sized dotting tool I had to create the petals and middle f the flowers. A pin needle, toothpick, or bobby pin will also work. Going to have to get another bottle of Kiss Me Here can see in the image where the bottle cap is a bit messed up. I'm not sure what happened to it. It was during the transition of keeping my bottles in a small contained to a 3-drawer Sterilite box. I guess it just exploded open due to heat or the cap wasn't screwed on tight enough, but it ended up leaking quite a bit. The bottle is down to about halfway and it is so thick now. A few drops of thinner can fix that, but I would like a backup bottle. It's just a nice gray.

Also: follow me on instagram! Looking for new followers all the time :). I do NOT just post nail art. It's mainly nail art and swatches with bits and pieces of miscellaneous things thrown in. The Crafty Ninja herself even favorited my recreation! The official China Glaze instagram page did too!
