#1 Orioles Fan

Greetings everyone!!!! For the manicure I have to share today, I changed things up a little bit and created a "Skittles" design for you all.

With the summer getting under way, Major League Baseball is in full swing, and my Baltimore Orioles are doing great!  (If you don't already know, I'm obsessed.with them  :). My outfit for the day consisted of jean shorts, an orange cami with white dots, an Orioles v-neck, baseball cap earrings, and a string bracelet in the O's colors. So I of course had to create some nails to match!!! :)

 My idea for this mani was simply to use several different techniques in the Orioles' colors of orange, white, and black. I also wanted a good excuse to break out my black crackle polish. ;)
 This pic shows the water marble that I created on my thumb. I think it turned out pretty well, and only took a couple of minutes!!!! But the results of water marbling are always so neat. :)
 Here's a close-up and front view of my thumb design. For the colors, I used an orange by Ciate, black from Wet n Wild, and Sally Hansen white. All three worked great for the water marbling!!!!
 On my first finger, I made a 3D type of design by dragging slightly dried polish over the orange background. Obviously my middle finger has my black Pure Ice crackle polish that I love so much :). I tried to ombre my ring finger, and it didn't turn out the best, but I think you still get the ombre feel. And then my pinky... Hmmm, not sure what to say other than I ran out of time and ideas and just painted it white. What a cop-out... LOL :)
And another side view, just because I'm sure NONE of you are getting at all tired of my sports obsession ;). Oh well, at least the Orioles are doing well so you don't have to hear me complaining all summer...

Who's your favorite baseball team? And do you like to create sports manicures???

Come back soon, and feel free to leave your thoughts below!!
