Today's DIY is a quick, cute idea for nails to show school spirit. I wanted something that was easy and not a crazy over-the-top nail art idea. This works well for high school, college, and pro teams, regardless of the sport. Just choose the team's colors! Even if sports aren't your thing, you can "sport" these nails. Pick whatever colors you like--no excuses! ;)
T O O L S:
- Polish in school colors
- Clear polish
- Pin (Flat, sewing, hat, Bobby, etc)
- Paper (I used a business card here. I've used Post-It notes too)
- Pencil with eraser (optional)
M E T H O D:
Choose polish in school colors.
Paint base coat. I chose black, but did a red nail just to show the result.
If your colors are too bold for you, use a white base.
Get your paper ready and drip a couple of dots of polish onto it.
I don't have a fancy nail art tool, so I used a flat pin to make my dots.
To make it easier to hold, stick the pin into the end of an eraser on a pencil.
Dip the pin into the paint and dot the nail.
Wipe off the pin head before moving onto another color.
The more pressure you apply, the bigger the dot.
Let dry and seal with clear polish. That's it!
For extra spirit, put your pup in a team jersey! Charlie the Morkie lovessss his. Can't you tell?
I already know 99% of the comments will be about Charlie. ;)
Ok, maybe he's over football season already? Or not amused with my Spirit Fingers?
Charlie Brown says, "Gooooo DAWGS! Sic 'em. Woof, woof, woof."
I mean, how CUTE is he?
