Super Bowl Manicure: Go 49ers!

Super Bowl 47 is this Sunday and it will be the Baltimore Ravens versus the San Francisco 49ers. I'm cheering on the 49ers because I think they're the "underdogs" and I really dislike the Ravens. I decided to show some spirit on my finger tips. Here's the colors I used and how to get the look:

L-R: The Spy Who Loved Me & Golden Eye from  OPI's Skyfall Collection | Black & White Nail Art Brushes

Step 1: Paint your nails red // Step 2: Tape off a triangle // Step 3: Paint nail with gold polish // Step 4: After drying, remove tape // Step 5: Outline the gold nail polish with a nail art brush.

You could create a triangle "stencil" if you're a stickler for perfection. I just eyeballed the triangle shapes and they came out fairly straight and even. I decided to outline the triangles with nail art brushes to tie in the black and white colors but to also clean up any imperfections. I love the look!

P.S. I feel like they look a little bit like Angry Birds lol.

What's been on your nails this week?

  6. Great mani! And you're right - they do remind me of Angry Birds :) I really need to get my manicure routine sorted, I haven't done my nails for weeks!

  7. Very good tutorial! They do look like Angry Birds a little bit, but I would definitely think of the 49ers first.
