TODAY IS THE DAY! Auburn plays their first football game of the season today against Arkansas and I am so freaking excited, y’all. The Charlotte Auburn Club has watch parties at Heist Brewery and you better believe I’ll be there decked out in Auburn themed everything.
To celebrate the beginning of the SEC football season all the SEC alumni chapters in Charlotte come together for an SEC Alumni Bash. It’s a tailgate style event that gives everyone a chance to mingle and is one of my favorite events of the year. Of course, I had to have the perfect manicure for the event. I’ve done SO MANY Auburn manicure over the years but this might be my favorite.
This turned out to be a sort of mix and match manicure. I did 4 different nail designs:
- Temporary Auburn nail tattoo over Ulta Snow White. For info on using temporary tattoo as nail art check out this post.
- I started with just deborah lippmann Rolling in the Deep but it was just too dark. It looks almost black in some lighting. In an attempt to brighten up the blue I added a coat of deborah lippmann Va Va Voom.
- Football nail. I used my leather effect technique.
- Plain orange nail (SinfulColors Citrine)
I like that this manicure had a little bit of everything.
Below the jump you will find additional swatches plus more Auburn themed manicures can be found in the related posts.
Happy Football Saturday!

Last weekend Charlotte hosted an International Champions Cup soccer (er, futbol) match between Liverpool and AC Milan. While I’m not the biggest soccer fan I do love sports and was excited to attend simply because it was a new experience and let me tell you; it was a SCENE. The game was in Bank of […] Continue reading →
Sometimes I just really want a beachy, statement manicure. SAID NO ONE EVER! But, that is what Ciate is pedaling with their newest Shell Manicure nail art kit. This kit sells at Sephora for $25 which is more or less highway robbery. You can get the supplies to do this manicure for less than $2 […] Continue reading →
Sometimes I just can’t help myself. This manicure is all wrong for my skintone but I just love it. I was wearing Barielle Panama Pina Collada which I adore but wanted to add something to spice it up a bit. Until this manicure I hadn’t used Sally Hansen Liquid Gold but had been dying to […] Continue reading →

Today is the final of the World Cup! It’s an exciting day just because of that but even more exciting is Germany is in the final. During the 2006 World Cup I was in Germany and I totally caught soccer fever. Ever since I’ve always cheered on Germany so hopefully they can pull off a […] Continue reading →
Being inspired by fashion and turning that into a manicure is nothing new around here. So when ModCloth contacted The Daily Varnish to tell me about their current nail art challenge; taking inspiration from a ModCloth dress and turning it into a manicure, I was in. I began to browse the over 3000 dresses on […] Continue reading →
Once the 4th of July holiday passes I always feel like the best part of summer is over. Especially when I had such a fun 4th of July weekend!

To date Orly Saturated and OPI Life Gave Me Lemons are my two favorite Spring/Summer 2014 polish releases. I just cannot get enough of those polishes! So clearly, the next step was to use them in a manicure together. Right? I decided to go big or go home with this mani. I imagine some people […] Continue reading →
