Game Day Nails

IT'S COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON! Yes, finally my favorite time of year is here! I have recently been OBSESSED with Pinterest. It's been occupying entirely TOO much of my time {hence no posts lately} I have been pinning everything and anything that has to do with tailgating, houndstooth and crimson. Here are a couple of examples.

Roll Tide

While I was pinning, I stumbled across the new (well at least to me) nail trend where the middle finger is painted a different color then the rest of your nails. I LOVE this but I wanted to put a little BAMA twist on it. So, I was in CVS over the summer and this houndstooth pattern caught my eye.

 Sally Hansen makes these nail polish strips that come in a houndstooth pattern {LOVE}! So I grabbed a box and took it home. I thought about what the heck I was going to do with it. I just couldn't see myself having all my nails in houndstooth so when I came across this new nail trend I knew what I was going to do.

First I applied the strip per the instructions and then I painted the remaining nails with Fishnet Stockings by Essie.

So far the strips have already chipped a little but this was my first try.

Have a very happy Friday and Roll Tide Roll!
