IT’S IRON BOWL DAY!!!!!!!!
Unless you are from Alabama or have some connection with Auburn or the University of Alabama you’re probably going to think I’m a bit crazy after this post. But I’m totally ok with that.
The Iron Bowl (aka the annual meeting of Auburn and Alabama’s football teams….) is being played today in Auburn. And the awesome thing about this year is I’m going to the game. My brother and I made the trip down to my alma mater yesterday and today will be completely immersed in Iron Bowl crazyness. College GameDay is on campus (we made signs!) and there is much tailgating to be done.
I’ve been prepping all week for our Iron Bowl tailgate so my nails have stayed orange and blue most of the week. For fun, I attempted to bring crackle back. I actually don’t hate it with this manicure. And it was something simple to do in the midst of a crazy busy week.
No worries…this isn’t the manicure I will be rocking at the game. I’m doing something a little bit more fun (or crazy….) for that!
Polishes I used: SinfulColors Citrine, Nina Ultra Pro Sailor and OPI White Shatter.
Hope everyone has a fabulous Saturday! There are swatches under the jump.

Nail art that requires special brushes is a fairly recent addition to my nail polish world. About 6 months ago I ordered a nail art brush set from eBay. I was so excited when they arrived I started using them right away! Then I realized I had no earthly idea how to clean them. After […] Continue reading →
It’s the first day of fall! It’s finally cooling down here in Charlotte but summer is still lingering. Despite that, I have been rocking fall nail polish colors. Now, I’m not one that follows seasonal color rules. If I want to wear hot pink nail polish in November, I will. But, I do like to […] Continue reading →
I love combining polishes. Especially a color with a metallic. Metallics can act as a neutral making metallics the perfect thing to add interest to a manicure without adding color. For someone like me who likes to match her outfit to her manicure but at the same times hates a boring manicure this is the […] Continue reading →
Best I can figure I haven’t used OPI Black Shatter since February of 2011. I used it over Orly Ancient Jade. Why? I have no idea. Looking at it now I can’t even imagine why I thought that was a good look… Anyway, I pulled it out of my Melmer earlier today to use it […] Continue reading →
Today is the official start of summer! I’m always excited when summer rolls around. I miss sundresses and the easiness that comes with summer. But then July and August happen and it becomes too hot to actually do anything and I wonder why I always get so excited. Another reason I love summer is I […] Continue reading →
It’s giveaway time!! The 4th of July holiday is quickly approaching and it’s one of my favorite holidays in terms of my nails. I’ve done a ton of patriotic nail art in the past so when I saw NCLA was releasing a special edition polish called United States of Glitter I was super excited. NCLA […] Continue reading →
I asked y’all to help me decide on a manicure for my birthday. There were so many awesome suggestions that my manicure ended up being this crazy fusion of several recommendations. But hey, if you can’t have a crazy manicure on your birthday, when can you have one? All the polishes I used were PISTOL […] Continue reading →
Recently I’ve noticed a ton of people on YouTube doing The Rainbow Tag. The idea is basically to pick your favorite products that fall into all the colors of the rainbow (plus a couple additional colors like multi-color). While this started out as a beauty tag I couldn’t help but think that would be an […] Continue reading →
Today is my birthday! Which gives me a perfect excuse to take a break from regular blogging. I’m not a huge birthday person but this year I’m turning 30 and am super excited about the whole thing. My twenties have been great but I’m over being in my twenties at this point. Tonight I’m going […] Continue reading →
