Tennis Nails

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend so far. I wanted to quickly share some nail art I did for the US Open tomorrow. My family usually goes one day every year and we always enjoy it.

I decided to do a different design on each nail and I think they're really fun! I'll go through what's on each finger (my thumb is the same as my middle finger).

Index: I started with a base of Essie Butler Please. The blue represents the court color at Arthur Ashe Stadium. I then stamped on a grid pattern in black to look like the net. Lastly I put a dot of China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini for my tennis ball.

Middle: This design is super simple! I started with a white base of Butter London Cotton Buds and this helped China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini pop on top of it. Then all you need to do is add two white curved lines for your tennis ball.

Ring: I saw this design on Instagram and thought it was so clever! It's supposed to look like the video that's shown when a call is challenged. I started with one coat of Zoya Ness and then layered Essie Butler Please diagonally across the top. Once this dried I used Butter London Cotton Buds to make the white lines representing those on the court. Lastly I added a dot of Chanel Orage, but obviously you don't need to use a luxury nail polish haha. Any dark gray will do!

Pinky: I used a base of Essie Butler Please again and then basically followed the same steps as the middle finger design.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your long weekend!
