Flip Flop Mani

     Today's challenge mani topic was flip flops.  I was a little sad when I read this because I don't have the cute stamp that everyone has with the flip flops on it and I wasn't very inspired because I only have flip flops with a straight color, not a cute design on them.  I was just going to do a skittle mani with all of the colors of flip flops I own, but then I remembered how I wanted to paint the designs from my pedi bag onto my nails.  It was the perfect idea!

See, flip flops!  The bag is very sheer so here is a picture of one of the bottles of products that comes in this uber cute bag.

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color: Glazed Pearl from SXY by Unforgettable Moments - 2 coats
Pink: Pink Friday from OPI
Green: I Need a Refresh-Mint from Wet N' Wild
     Straps on flip flops: White from Kiss Brush On Nail Art Paint
     Flowers on flip flops and dots: French White Tip from NYC
     Stamped flowers: Stamp Me! White from Essence
Stamping plate: Mash plate 35

As I am sure you will be able to tell, the green and pink flowers were done by hand.  I used a dotting tool to do these and the random dots that are all over.  The white flower on my middle finger was the only one that was stamped on to my nail.

So, what do you think of my recreation?
