HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!
I couldn’t be more excited. I don’t know about you guys but this week seemed super long!
Anyways, Giants. And I mean San Francisco Giants. That means Black and Orange! That means “Fear the beard!!” This weekend is the San Francisco Giants’ second annual pre-game Brewfest. But instead of doing something for the occasion I did pink nails with pretty flowers for my accent nail.
JUST KIDDING! =)
This manicure was difficult for me because I wasn’t really sure where to start. I did my tips with four different colors, why? I’m not really sure. But I started with OPI Alpine Snow. It was way too bold white for what I wanted so I added OPI No Bee’s Please (which I have used many, many times in other posts) to give Alpine snow a nice subtle off white shade. I then did orange crackle on under black shatter. Remember when layering shatters, it works best when applying a top coat between the layers to ensure good shattering.
On my ring finger I attempted to do a baseball. I have to say that I was not breathing for this one. I needed to use such a fine brush that I was so nervous! It isn’t perfect, and I messed up a couple of stitches, but I don’t feel like trying to do it again. I would probably pass out!
First I started with Alpine Snow and No Bees Please. With the fine brush I made the tiniest dots I could make as a guide for the seam of the baseball.
Then using the same brush I used OPI Big Apple Red to make the stitches. This is where the no breathing started.
For my index fingers I did one nail with the SF logo and the other Brian Wilson’s famous beard (FEAR THE BEARD!) On both nails I used OPI Black Onyx and OPI Atomic Orange.
And happy polishing! =)
