Lazy Days of Summer Challenge - Flip Flops

Hello everyone! :)
I really struggled with what to do for today's theme, which is Flip Flops. The only thing I could think of was painting the v shape of the flip flop on my nails, but I thought that was way too boring. After thinking for a while I came up with something that I feel is creative enough and I actually really enjoyed painting this design on my nails.
So I went with the idea of feet and flip flops. I honestly thought this would turn out terrible when I planned it out in my head but I think it turned out okay! :)
To create these nails I used 3 coats of China Glaze Pool Party for the base on all of my nails. I then used black acrylic paint to create the shape of the feet and toes. I added two coats of Sally Hansen Iced Coffee on top of the acrylic paint to create a skin tone shade. I then used another coat of Pool Party to create the strap of the flip flop and added dots of Barielle Platinum Ring to give it some extra sparkle :P I even painted the toe nails on the feet with Color Club Almost Famous. Wooo, that's a whole lot of polish! :P
I based these nails around my mother, believe it or not. In the summer my mum always wears flip flops, she has so many pairs it is ridiculous! I modeled the flip flops on my nails around one of her favorite pairs. Needless to say she was very impressed and now wants some of these nails doing for herself :P

Have you ever done flip flops nails? Let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading,
