Nail Art: Polka Dots & Tiger Stripes

It’s kind of a big day in my world. Today is the Iron Bowl. The annual football game between Auburn and Alabama. I, along with half my family, attended Auburn. So it’s sort of a family holiday.

Of course I had to do an Auburn themed manicure for the event. I considered doing the same manicure I did last year for the BCS National Championship game, but decided I wanted to try something different.

For the navy base I used Orly Star of Bombay. I then used Ulta Snow White for the larger polka dots, and OPI Hot & Spicy for the smaller polka dots. I loved the way the polka dots turned out, but wanted to do an orange accent nail. As a base I used OPI Hot & Spicy so it would match the polka dots. This was my first attempt at tiger stripes and I think it turned out pretty good. Of course, I had to top the tiger stripes with Wet n Wild Hallucinate to add a little glitter.

It would take more than a minor miracle for Auburn to win today, but I am none the less looking forward to the game. War Eagle!
