Baseball Nails!!

Today I wanted to show you the baseball nails I did for the Oakland A's game that I am going to tomorrow night!
Disclaimer: I am a huge Detroit Tigers fan, but my favorite player is now with the A's, so I'm headed to Baltimore to see them play!

For those who aren't fans of baseball, the A's colors are green and yellow. They have some pretty cool retro uniforms too. Since I'm going to be wearing my Oakland A's Brandon Inge #7 shirt, I wanted to have matching nails.....and here they are!

Oakland A's nails!
For the green I chose OPI's Greenwich Village. It's a jelly finish and not as dark as I would like, but I had to make do with what I had. I may switch to neon green or maybe even Cult Nails' Toxic Seaweed before Friday. The yellow is one of my favorite OPI colors of all time - Need Sunglasses? I love this color. It's one of my favorite and the reason I didn't use that for a bottle shot is because it's half empty! 

Thumb - Greenwich Green; Middle three fingers - Need Sunglasses?; Pinkie - Greenwich Green

I'm excited to head to Baltimore to visit Camden Yards for the first time. For those who do not know, I work as a sports editor for my local newspaper. People think it's funny when I take my vacation to go to baseball games, but if there is one thing I love as much as polish and puppies, it's sports!

Let's go A's!
I'm also excited to head out to the game, because I was supposed to go see the Tigers when they came to Pittsburgh, which is about two hours away from me, but I got sick and had to give up my tickets. So this will be the first MLB game I've been to all year! Thanks to my hubby, I'll be sitting in the second row right next to the A's dugout, so I'm hoping to get some great pics of Brandon!

There is one downside about going away....

I'm going to miss my puppies while I'm gone!! But they are in good hands, because their Pop (my dad) is coming to our house to babysit them for two whole days. That means they'll be spoiled rotten when we get home!

Have you ever done team nails before? If you have, leave me a comment and let me know what team you did and what polishes you used!!

  1. Hope you had fun at the game!! I love the idea of showing team spirit through your nails :) I used butter london's Trout Pout and sinful colors Black on Black for the Giant's opening day!

    In baseball news I thought you might enjoy this clip from a game this week:

    Hope you are doing well!
