Peoria Chiefs



Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used Love Athletes in Cleats from the Fashion Plate Collection, Flit a Bit from the Summer Flutter Collection, and Need Sunglasses? from the Brights by the Dozen Collection for the fire ombre on the outer nails.  I drew black flames on top and finished the tips off with Northern Lights.

I used black acrylic paint for Homer's spots and finished that nail off with the red seams on a baseball.  I used yellow and black acrylic paint for the Chief's logo.

This year, the Peoria Chiefs (Class A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals) will be heading to the play offs for the first time since 2009.  I figured this would be a good way to support the local baseball team! :)

Radiant Snow

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used a newer (to me) Bundle Monster plate for the design and Designer Series' Radiance.

Super simple.  Elegant.  I hope you enjoy it! :)

Euro Centrale Pinwheel

Base color in OPI's My Vampire is Buff from the Euro Centrale Collection.  I used striping tape to get the neat lines you see above.  I filled the little sections with You're Such a Budapest, Suzi's Hungary Again, Can't Find My Czechbook, and OPI... Eurso Euro.

I forgot how much I love this collection.  Everything goes together perfectly!  Enjoy! :)

Push & Pur-Pull

Base color in OPI's Push & Pur-Pull from the Go Neon or Go Nude Collection.  For the tips, I used Love. Angel. Music. Baby. from the Gwen Stefani Collection and some striping tape.  Turned out pretty cool I think! Enjoy! :)

Kiwis

Base color in OPI's Life Gave Me Lemons from the Go Neon or Go Nude Collection.  I used white acrylic paint (which kind of blended into the green.. still looks good) for the centers of the kiwis and black paint for the seeds.

Cutepolish just put out an adorable Summer Fruit tutorial and I loved the kiwis!  I may do some more fruits because there are so many to choose from. Enjoy! :)

Muddy Mani (Warrior Dash Nails)

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used A-Piers to be Tan from the San Francisco Collection for the mud on each of the nails.  The feature nail was done using black and red acrylic paint.

I will be participating in the Warrior Dash this weekend in Wisconsin and of course need the nails to match!  Enjoy this muddy mani!

Coral Me For a Good Time

Base color in OPI's Live. Love. Carnival. from the Brazil Collection.  
I used the 2015 garden collection from Bundle Monster for the stamp in white Konad stamping polish.  I've been out of the game for a week or two, so I was easing myself back into nail art.  Simple, but the perfect summer color!  Enjoy! :)
