This post has two nail art designs, a great product (pink hair!) and, as the title says, an exciting announcement - my special surprise for you at the end!
First of all, as mentioned in my 'Bud Shootout' post, I did end up doing my nails for the Daytona 500. It was an amazing event that held a ton of surprises (one of the cars crashed into a jet dryer - used to dry the track from rain - and there was a huge explosion!). Here are the nails I wore for the weekend of February 24th - 27th!
Right Hand - checkered flag, Sprint logo, and the NASCAR logo
Keep reading to see more of this design, the groovy spring nail design, and find out what the surprise is!
Left hand featuring the track shape on the thumbnail!
OPI Black Onyx - Base on all nails/black details
Stripe Rite White - All white details
OPI I Vant To Be Alone Star - Grey used in flag shading/track outline
Nascar Color gradient composed of:
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
OPI In My Back Pocket
OPI Don't Be Koi With Me
OPI Dim Sum Plum
OPI Ogre-The Top Blue
This next design is not my favorite, but I figured I'd throw in a pic of it just for giggles.
I feel like it's kind of groovy-retro, like something I would wear as a young teen. Anyway, it's coming off tonight to make way for a much more grown up and sophisticated design tomorrow!
OPI Dim Sum Plum - Base on all nails
Stripe Rite White - White details
Kiss Nail Art Striper in Yellow - Yellow outline
OPI Pink Flamenco - Center of flowers
NOW, check out this product. It's clip in pink hair extensions from Sally's! The package comes with two, and it's under $20 even after tax. Plus, it is made of 100% real human hair - which means you can wash it, hairspray it, curl it, straiten it or even dye it if you have the desire to do so! I'm in love with these. It's so fun to add a pop of excitement to your hair without worrying about commitment at all!
The clip stays put wonderfully, and it lasted me all day. Even survived being constantly tied back into a ponytail and then let out again throughout the day. Highly recommend.
Finally, for the exciting announcement
