The Weekend Post #5: Superbowl Sunday

It is known far and wide that I am a die hard Ravens fan.  So, in honor of them playing in the Superbowl (and winning) I painted my nails in gold, purple, and black.  I dabble in nail art, but am nowhere near as good as my dad is, yet I try.
For the purple, I used my Sinful Colors purple.  It's a really nice texture, sparkly, but it isn't opaque in one coat- it usually takes two.  I only applied one coat because I wasn't in the mood (nor did I have the time) to wait around for the second coat to dry and I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the sheer wash of purple it gave my nails.  For the gold, I used OPI's Goldeneye from their James Bond collection.  It's a wonderful color, very opaque, and just a really nice nail polish all around.  Then I used a black nail polish with a very thin brush to make the designs on my nails.  I'm not quite sure how I feel about this polish.  It can get pretty chunky after a while and the brush is very thin and long, making it very difficult to get a precise line or design.  Here was the final product:
I was pretty happy with how they turned out.  I'm not too good at doing designs, so that doesn't look very nice but I figure Hey, I did it myself.  I get an 'A' for effort, right? Haha, I kid, I kid... but, no, seriously.
How did you spend your weekend, or Superbowl Sunday? XOXO


  1. Congrats to the Ravens as they beat the 49ers. It is hard for me to say that as I was born in the City by the Bay and live in the Bay Area.

    Saw your blog on a link-up.
