Football season is upon us and I am a titans fan!!!! So I have decided to do a titans color scheme on my nails. Nothing too fancy just using my boys colors and attempting a straw manicure. I'm not sure that is even the actual name for it but I have seen many of the lovely bloggers I follow use this technique and I love the results so Let's give it a try shall we?
OK so I started with two coats of OPI Unfor-greta-bly blue.
After letting that completely dry...and eating some tacos...I moved on to trying to work with the straw. I used a red swizzle straw.
And used it to sort of stamp little circles on to the nails. For this I used a Sonia Kashuk silver called Smoke and Mirrors.
And a pretty little Titan blue from Essie called Avenue Maintain.
Don't mind the white on the bottle...had a bit of a Polish explosion: 0(.
so how I did this was I put little dollops of Polish on a magazine and took the edge of the straw and rolled the edge of it in the Polish. I learned the hard way that simply dipping the straw just creates a big blob on the nail instead of neat little circles. I finished you the look with one of my favorite polishes as an accent nail, OPI liquid sand in Tiffany Case. Love love love this color.
So here is the finished look.
It didn't turn out quite like I had hoped. Mainly because I had some issue with placing the little straw circles in an creative and pretty way. But Hey it was my first try and That's what this blog is all about, not just sharing the good but Also the bad and the ugly; 0). What do you all think?
Hope you all enjoyed this little adventure. As for me it's time to watch the final 4 minutes of my game! Go Titans!!!!
keep it polished!
