The Digit-al Dozen DOES Summer - Lolli-Pop Art

Hi Goddesses

Today's mani was all Beth's idea, and bless her, did she hit on a cute idea - ice lollies, but in pop art colours.

She was very specific.  5 colours, mummy, and then whatever order you do the lollies in, you keep that order for the background, but start it 2 nails down.   How she knows this at age 11 is beyond me lol.

I used almost all OPIs for this - 3 of their baby neons and Hot & Spicy, which is fast becoming a favourite.  I also used w7 Neon Green.  The outlining was done with my favourite nail art brush and black acrylic paint.

I wasn't sure if I could pull this off, so I actually did the sensible thing and took photos before I did the outline lol, just in case I messed it up.  I was super happy with them .... until I saw the lollies Vic and Hannah did.  Mine don't compare well.  I don't know whether it's practice, or a lack of confidence in the brushstrokes, but I need to work on it.
