Cougar Nails

Last Saturday, Boyfriend and I attended the Coug game in Seattle. It's a big deal because the Coug's only play one game per year over here and there's no way we're going all the way to the other side of the state just for the Cougs. Remember, B's a Cougar fan while I'm a Husky fan.

Although I'm not a Coug fan, I still had to be somewhat festive....this is as far as I'll go. Crimson and grey are the Coug's colors.

 I remembered this pin on Pinterest so I decided to try it.

I started with my new fave color - Mochacino. Let the base color dry completely. I painted mine Thursday night and did everything else Friday night.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics
 I couldn't find the hole protector things the pinner used, so I used these instead

If you use these, put the sticker on the back of your hand to get rid of some of the stickiness  first. You can see where the sticker ripped off some of the grey color on my pinky nail because I didn't realize the sticker would be so sticky. This is also why you want your base to be completely dry.

I was able to use one sticker for my whole hand, unless I repositioned the sticker a ton, then I used two stickers for each hand.
I got a lot of compliments on my nails when I posted this tailgating pic.
