As promised, this week I will be showing nail art that have more meaning besides being fun.
Being from the NYC area, I am lucky to have not one, but two baseball teams to root for. The better half had never been to a baseball game in his life, and my mom surprised us with 9th row field seats only a few days before my birthday. I'm so glad that A. Santana pitched a no hitter the night before so the atmosphere was great B. Wright hit a home run and the boyfriend got to see the famous Shea Stadium (now Citi Field) big apple rise, and C. The Mets won! And by a lot.
Zoya Arizona was the perfect Mets orange. The formula was fantastic and I only needed two coats. On top, I was able to finally use NailVenturous's Burst of Blue. I had it in my untrieds for a while and this was the perfect use! This polish is so jam packed with glitter, it is crazy! What you see is one coat (yes it is that dense) over Zoya Arizona. Also, no digging for any white hexes and the bar glitter laid flat! My biggest annoyance is prickly bar glitter!
Now onto the blue. Here is a new way to use your shatters! I didn't have a perfect Mets blue at the time BUT OPI Blue Shatter was perfect! I simply did two coats on shatter for this effect. Of course, this polish dries super fast and matte, so it was easy to do nail art right after I applied the polish. I really like the texture created by two coats of shatter. In order for the orange to pop off the blue, I first did the Mets logo in white.
Then I got really artistic here. It was super sunny and I couldn't really see what I was doing but I thought the background with Citi Field was quite fabulous.
Bonus pictures, you say? Why not!? Do you think I did the logo justice?
And yes, that is one of my jewelry pieces! A simpler one, but I thought it went together well with my blue shirt. I needed that pop of orange.
Lastly, I couldn't help but show you my boyfriend's cat. Because it was my boyfriend's first game ever, I bought him one of those mini helmets filled with ice cream. It just looked so cute on his kitty! We cleaned it first, so don't worry about ice cream all over her face.
Can't wait to continue to show you more nail art the rest of the week? Please feel free to comment on what YOU want to see. Reader's request next week? I think so!
