As always, I am super excited that football season has arrived. My alma mater, Auburn, plays Louisville this afternoon. But last weekend was the annual Charlotte SEC Alumni Kick Off. This is one of my favorite events of the year. It’s a big tailgate in a parking lot of a local pub. Every school has a tent (or three) and it’s a great way to meet people from other SEC schools that live in Charlotte. Plus, I (somewhat accidentally) won 2 boxes of Golden Flake potato chips.
For the event I, of course, had to have a properly themed manicure. I loved my Pride manicure so much I decided to do a similar manicure using Auburn colors.
For the base I used essie Private Weekend. Then I added an orange stripe with essie Color Binge; then the blue on both sides of the orange with essie Bell-Bottom Blues. The resulting manicure had a bit of a Gatsby/1920’s/Art Deco feel that I really loved. Plus, it was bold and graphic which made it stand out.
I’m bias and quite love the combination of orange and blue. However, obviously this manicure can be done with endless color combinations just make sure to keep the lighter color in the middle to get that art deco look.
Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump. And War Eagle!
