This look was inspired by football—specifically the Miami Dolphins. I have wanted to do something with their colors for a while now. I mean who can resist aqua and orange? So for this look I started with L.A. Colors base coat-top coat followed by two coats of L.A. Colors Color Craze in Atomic (BCC 564).
I used masking tape and two coats of Sun Kissed from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear on my middle finger to create a stripe down the middle. After letting the orange polish dry, I peeled off the tape. The tape did not come off as cleanly as I would have liked. I think this was due to the thickness of the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish. I ended up going over the stripe again with the orange polish brush and no tape. I then added L.A. Colors base coat-top coat and Love My Nails Nail Dryer. The nail dryer really helped to smooth out the stripe and of course helped the polish dry faster with no smudges.
