Game-Day Nails: Kentucky

Man, last night's game was tense.  So tense, in fact, that I couldn't even be in the same room as it!  We weren't doing very well while I was watching, so I went on a late night Starbucks run.  As soon as I left, we got a TD.  I got back and tried to watch a little more, but we started sucking it up again.  I took matters into my own hands and went to my polish room to work and watch last week's Vampire Diaries.  I had intended to work while watching the game, but I guess the universe had other plans.  

Anyway, here are my Game-Day nails!!  I did a SOG (Soak Off Gel) mani with Gelish Simple Sheer, Sheek White, and some craft glitter.  Luckily, it's ok to use craft glitter with SOGs, especially when you don't mix it into polish and use it as topical nail art only.  [Although, I will say that you can mix craft glitter into gel polish without having to worry about bleeding or warping, which is pretty cool.]  I then topped my SOG mani with a doticure using OPI Animalistic and China Glaze Liquid Leather.  

My left hand didn't turn out as well, so I am showing you guys Mr. Righty.  Even still, you'll notice that the glitter spread a little before I was able to cure it.  Next time I'll make sure to flash cure each nail as I go!

I really love how this came out, and I'm super pleased with my dotting tools.  I purchased them from Dollish Polish here, and they are currently in stock.  China Glaze Liquid Leather is available where China Glaze polishes are sold.  Animalistic is a discontinued polish from OPI's Muppet collection last year.  It's a gorgeous red with red glass flakes.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep yet another red, but this one is just so pretty that I think I will!

Congratulations again to all of my winners!  You have 48 hours to return my contact email before I choose another winner.  Thanks to everyone for your participation!!
