Orange You Pumped

 Here in Baltimore, Maryland, we love our Baltimore Orioles MLB team. And for once, they are finally playing well and are in the running for a playoff position! Woo hoo!! :) Thursday was declared "Orange You Pumped Day" in honor of our Orioles. So that is what inspired this manicure. I also got the opportunity to go to the O's game last night against the Yankees; unfortunately, we did lose, but I have some awesome nails to make up for it. :)
 I started with an orange base of NYC Long Wearing Polish in Times Square Tangerine Cream. I then drew an "Orioles 'O'" with a fine tip brush and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish in Black Out.
Now, my fine tip nail brush is pretty cool because it has a dotting tool on the other end which I used for the above fingers. I again used Black Out as well as Wet n Wild in French White Cream. For these, I did two different dotting patterns.

On my first and ring fingers, I made diagonal stripes of dots, alternating black and white. For my middle and pinky fingers I did a "checkerboard" design.

For those of you non-Orioles fans, I'm sorry, and I promise there will be something else up shortly (as well as some exciting news!). For the rest of you, "LET'S GO O'S!!!"
