Hey Y’all!!! Ryan here from Nail’d In The South!!!! This is the 3rd installment of Nicole and I’s football series nails. Like we promised, this Friday’s football nails would be a guest post and a team swap where Nicole & I would do our nails for each other’s college teams. As you will see over on my blog, Nicole has totally & completely outdone me. She did my Arkansas Razorbacks serious justice & brought honor to the Hogs with some fabulous red, black, white nails! I am so jealous of her nails she did! Here on her blog I’m bringing y’all a pretty lame interpretation of the Oregon Ducks uniform from 2010 when they played in the National Championship & lost to Auburn from the SEC state of Alabama. The Ducks gave a good try, but as history proves, the SEC is the best college football conference in the nation….an SEC team has won the National Championship the past 6 straight years. haha! Anyways, I was so in love with their badass uniforms that year. It wasn’t their typical yellow & green. They were kinda black with highlighter yellow accents & muted grey wings on the shoulders. I totally loved them. I didn’t attempt to draw the wings. I did one design on my right hand & hated it then did something completely different on my left hand which i somewhat liked better. The left hand design is the one I photographed.
For the nails, I used OPI “Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow” – a deep hunter green, on all the nails except the ring nail. Then on the ring nail, I made it an accent nail with China Glaze “Celtic Sun”. I did 4 coats of Celtic Sun because its very streaky & takes a lot to be perfectly opaque. After the green OPI was dry, I used a painter’s sponge to sponge some Celtic Sun on top. It gave it a kind of saran wrap/marbling effect. Topped it all with Seche Vite. Sorry I didn’t put more effort in like drawing wings or at least an “O” or something…i have failed y’all & Nicole. But I still hope you like this color combo & sponge effect! Go Ducks!
Alright, that’s it for today’s little guest post! I’m sure it’s been more than all of you lovely Nicole blog fans can stand! Haha I hope you enjoyed my Oregon Duck colored nails!!!!
