Football nails

So Christmas is over, and tomorrow means back to work, and next week means fun New Year's manis, but for today, I wanted to show off a little Bengals pride, as the team I grew up with won out the AFC North division. Go Bengals!

For this I used On the Same Paige from OPI and my trusty Rimmel Lycra Wear Black Satin, which I love more everytime I use it even though it started out rough. The OPI applied beautifully. Two coats to opaque. I could have gone with one, but used the second to even it out.

I first tried to do something akin to tiger stripes, FAIL, and then I tried a single stripe effect, FAIL and decided on this. I used Orly In a snap over top, and it was amazing. It dried every thing fast, and more importantly made it all even, so I couldn't tell the black was an additional layer. It's not my best work, but at least I tried something new, and I wanted to show it off, before tomorrow.

I have soooooooooo many new nail polishes with Christmas hauls, I will have enough to keep me going. (at least until Absolutely Alice comes out next month!)
