The tennis at the Olympics is winding down. With most of the tennis finals this weekend it is the perfect time to do some tennis themed nail art. I thought about doing more traditional nail art but then decided that I wanted to do something a bit different. So I quite literally made my nails look like tennis balls!

For the base color I used Essie Mojito Madness and applied Lime flocking powder to give my nails a tennis ball texture. I used the same technique as I used in my DIY Velvet Manicure to adhere the flocking powder to the nails.

I really love the way this manicure turned out. It’s different from the other Olympic inspired nail art I’ve been doing and sport specific.

There are more swatches below the jump!
