Good morning all! By the time you read this, I’ll have been up for a few hours already, on the road. In case you didn’t know, my husband runs his father’s bowling center. Today there is a tournament a little ways away from our city, so we’re traveling there for my husband to compete. I wanted to give him some good luck nails for the day, so I created a fun manicure! Let’s take a look. (Please excuse my ugly thumb!)
On my left hand, I created the lanes, complete with bowling ball and pins. I used OPI Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh on all the nails as a base. The pins were created with OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Black Onyx, and OPI Color So Hot It Berns. The ball was created with Black Onyx and Alpine Snow. The arrows were created with SOPI Studs & Stilettos.
The heads of the pins are a mite too big, but otherwise, I’m pleased with this!
On my right hand, I wanted to do a few different things. I created a pop-out 300 and 800 – 300 of course for a perfect game, and 800 for a series. My husband has had many 300 games but never an 800 series. Both these nails were created with Alpine Snow & Black Onyx. Since we were headed to a tournament, I also decided to do a dollar symbol and a tournament cup. I started off with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff on those nails. For the dollar nail, I used SOPI The Golden Age for the bling, and OPI Jade is the New Black for the dollar symbol itself. The tournament cup was created with OPI Goldeneye and ringed with Black Onyx. Lastly, I created a bowling frame, complete with strike; again created with Black Onyx and Alpine Snow.
Btw, do you know how hard it is to do curved lines (that look the part) with your non-dominant hand?! LOL.
So, what do you think? I rather like how they turned out, ugly thumb and all! So dish…what’s your highest bowling score? Do you even like to bowl? Spill it in the comments! Until tomorrow,
