Colorado Rockies team spirit mani

Friday, August 3, 2012

I'm going to the Rockies game tomorrow. I love the Rockies -  although they really aren't showing up to the games this year. I hope they do better tomorrow. Either way - I am not a fair weather fan. I am a fan no matter what.

So to show my team spirit I did a Colorado Rockies mani for the weekend festivities!

I used Orly Charged Up for the base and Hits Hematita for the silver. The black tips are Zoya Raven.

I applied a base coat and then two coats of Orly Charged up and then a coat of Seche Vite fast dry top coat. Then the time consuming part... cutting the scotch tape into the mountain shapes. That was a killer. Between going cross-eyed from trying to focus on the tiny cuts and my hands shaking trying to cut those small shapes it was an effort. But it worked out. What didn't work out was the hand drawn CR. I guess it is okay. But it isn't very "finished." But I am sure during my yelling, screaming and jumping up and down during the game no one is going to get that close.

I put the cut out scotch tape on my nails and then painted on Hits Hematita and removed the tape immediately.

Then after a coat of Seche Vite fast dry top coat I applied a piece of scotch tape (make sure to put it on the back of your hand a couple of times to get most of the "sticky" off.) for the tips and then used Zoya Raven. Again, I immediately removed the tape. Then another coat of SV and I was done.

It may sound quick but I am telling you... Cutting that tape was an effort in futility.


  1. Very nice very to the point and I'm sure they will be noticed love them

  2. I love Charged Up. It's one of my favorite purples and it is a perfect Rockies purple too! I love your main. I can't believe you think you need a "do over". Ugh. Miss Perfectionist. Have a blast at the game. I haven't been to a Rockies game in years! :)
