The Digit-al Dozen - Inspired by Each Other: Day 4

Neon fluid art drip marble unicorn nail art

Another day, another Digit-al Dozen manicure - there's drip marble, flowers, unicorn, stamping, neon and holo - oh my! All together it gives me a very whimsical fairytale vibe :)
My source of inspiration for this look was Courtney/Polished Lifting. She's got a lot of nail art sprinkled into her posts and it was actually hard for me to pick one. I even had my husband go through her IG and give me ideas! In the end, I couldn't do the ones he suggested - Courtney's freehand Heihei from Moana was very high on that list, and, well, my freehand is non-existent! This vivid drip marble look, this I can do!

I used Tonic Polish Jinkx for the silver holo base, and stamped the unicorn and "flowers" from Bundle Monster plates (unicorn on BM-XL214, succulents from BM-S326). The flowers are actually succulents, since I love that place to much, but in this color scheme, you can't even tell!  The stamping is done with BornPretty Store purple stamping polish and I colored in the images on the stamper before transferring to the nails.

The main drip marble colors are all neons from China Glaze - Thistle do Nicely, Too Yacht to Handle and That's Shore Bright. Hopefully you'll notice a bit of cells in my drip marble that's a signature look of "fluid art" - I've done with technique before and love it, so I wanted to spice up the drip with Sinful Colors Purpunk, it's a lavender one and blends in nicely!

I hope I did Courtney's mani justice! I also re-learned for myself just how bright neons are and what a pain to take pictures of! Before I added the stamped unicorn and flowers, the drip marble was so bright! and after, it's just background blur compared to that unicorn and flower!

Be sure to take a look at the linkup, I think it's safe to say that everyone in the Digit-al Dozen that's participating is enjoying the inspo theme!
