Hay y'all! I'm still slowly getting back up to speed in my nail game - I miss painting them every night or every other night but I've had a lot going on lately and the thought of painting my nails has just been exhausting for some reason! Please bear with me while I work on ramping up my creativity/energy again. :)
Last night I knew I wanted to paint my nails but I didn't want to do anything super complicated. I've had the idea for these nails on the back burner ever since I got my sweet drippy slime iPhone case a month or so ago, so I decided to go ahead and make them happen!
I've never done slimy/drippy nails before and they were super fun and easy to do. I didn't even use any nail art brushes - just the nail polish bottle brush!
Nathan (le boyfriend) says they remind him of Nickelodeon. I agree, I think the color combo is what does it!
Here's a shot of the nails and the cool iPhone case inspiration! The colors are a little off, which bothers my OCD self, but oh well. I started out using a neon pink for the base but the pink I ended up using is closer to the color of the pink on the case, just a little darker. The green is brighter/lighter in real life but I think layering it over the pink made it darken up too.
Here's a bonus shot of my usual hand pose - you can see that obnoxious round corner on my thumb nail, but it's slowly going away as I file my nails a little each time they're naked. I wish my nails grew faster, UGH.
The colors I used in this mani are China Glaze - Rich & Famous (pink) and Orly - Fresh (green). Rich & Famous is such a pretty pink, it's bright and saturated but a little muted at the same time.
Funny story - when I logged onto tumblr to post this mani, I saw this post from Alex over at Deluxe Digits and I was like OMG ARE YOU SERIOUS! What are the odds that someone I follow on tumblr would have the same phone case as I do and do a mani inspired by it ON THE SAME DAY I DID. It gave me a serious case of the internal giggles. The world is a really cool/weird place sometimes.
