Red, Black, & Silver Holo Georgia Bulldogs Mani

Hey y'all!  With the official start of college football, I had to do some UGA nails. I guess they could be Atlanta Falcons themed too, but I love my Bulldogs!  I went a little trigger happy with the camera, so there are TONS of pics.

These are actually kind of a 3-in-1 design.  This could be just solid colors or have holo added, like I did, for some extra flair.  You could also stop at any point or make any changes.  In fact, you could swap out & use the colors of your choosing....which is what nail art is all about.

This is how this mani started.  I used OPI Coca-Cola Red, then sponged Wet N Wild Black Creme onto half of the nail.  I sponged it on separately so that it looked more rough and not blended as it would have if I'd applied both the red and black polishes to the sponge. 

For the accent nail, I started out with Color Club Harp On It as my base.  Once that was dry I applied some chevron vinyls and brushed on WnW Black Creme then Pretty & Polished Black Swan quickly before removing the vinyls.  Then I just put on a coat of Seche Vite.

Of course I wasn't fully satisfied, even though I liked it....so I kept adding to it.

I grabbed the sponge again & applied Red Friday by Darling Diva Polish and Black Swan by Pretty & Polished over the red/black gradient.  This added more holo to balance out the accent nail.

I had to add a little something else to take it one more step further, so I grabbed my white acrylic paint.  I am sloppy when it comes to writing on a curved surface with a very pointed dotting tool, but it works.  I think the "GO DAWGS" finished it off perfectly.


Once I was finished I took a few pics outside with my phone as well as a couple macro shots.

So what do y'all think?  Excited for the return of college football?  Who do you cheer for?
