World Cup Shoes

Good day, loves!

There have been so many great World Cup nail designs this year :D I love seeing all the manis inspired by the game or by the different countries. But what I kept noticing in all the games was the players' shoes! Not because I'm a big shoe person, but because a lot of them are bright neon colours: yellow, pink, orange, blue... I couldn't find many pics of the pink ones, but the yellow is here:

Anyway, I decided to paint some World Cup inspired nails, with the shoes as my inspiration :D

The gradient nails are sponged with Orly Glowstick (yellow) and China Glaze Pool Party (pink), then topped with China Glaze Fairy Dust for some sparkle. They are so much more neon than they appear in pics! The accent nail is a plain white base (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On) and Pool Party for the ball details.

All nails topcoated with Seche Vite, except the balls: I used NYC Matte Me Crazy for those. It's not a true matte topcoat, more of a satin/wax finish, and I thought it was a pretty good mimic for the surface of a real football/soccer ball.

Are you watching any of the Cup games? How's your team doing? Australia is doing pretty badly, but I've still been staying up late to watch them when I can :D (At least we didn't get bitten...)

Thanks for coming by today--see you soon for more! xoxo
