Summer Challenge Hot! Hot! Hot!

Hi Readers!  Today I have another mani for the Summer Challenge over at the Purple Crumpet Fairy in Facebook.  Today's challenge is Hot! Hot! Hot!  I did this mani not really thinking of the challenge but honestly it fits in great!
I decided to try a water marble I had seen done on Professional DQ's You Tube page awhile ago.  Please check her out here SHE IS AMAZING!
First up is my neon tiger water marble!
How cool is this?  I love to water marble over a gradient!
Here's a little collage I put together of the mani because it doesn't stop here!
In keeping with the youtube tutorial I did a purple neon zebra on the right hand!
This one turned out SO cool!
Here's the collage I put together for this one!
I should have thought to do this with the left hand but didn't but here's how the neon gradient looked for the purple zebra before I marbled it!
Pretty hot hey????  Check out the before and after!
And check this out!  After I had done the tiger I noticed th.e back.  Those Louboutin mani's got nothing on my tiger backs!
What do you think of this one readers??? Did I walk around with 2 different mani's on each hand--HECK YEAH!

I used China Glaze Neons again for this.  Tiger is Flip Flop Fantasy and Orange Knockout.  For the purples I used Pink Voltage, Purple Panic and Flying Dragon.  I really love how they turned out.  I didn't use 2 drops of a clear with doing the zebra though and I think I would like it better if I had.  I'm sure I'll be doing this sort of mani again!

Here's my The Carly I did with this mani
Which one is your favorite Neon Orange Tiger or Neon Purple Zebra?

  1. I love the neon tiger! This is the coolest marble idea. I've got to try it.

    1. Please do! I followed the instructions on Professional DQ's You Tube channel--she does an AHmazing job of stuff and it was really easy!

  2. Oh my god, I am so in love. This is amazing!

  3. Oh man, I can't decide! I think maybe the orange one, by a hair. They're both really HOT. :)

    1. I really loved the orange until I did the purple lol!

  4. This is epic! I completely love both, but I'm going to go with the purple one by just a tad!

  5. I swear one day I'm going to rock a water marble the way you do.

  6. Your manicures are always so creative! Love this!
