Wildcat Purple NOTD

  Last night I painted my nails in preparation for the Kansas State Wildcats football game on Saturday.  I am a huge K-State fan... so you may be seeing variations of purple/white/maybe silver often.  :)

Outdoors, overcast, no flash
  For these nails, I used OPI Purple with a Purpose.  It took me a long time to find the exact perfect KSU purple and this one is definitely it.  It is also a fairly similar color to OPI Funky Donkey, except this one has a light shimmer.  I love this polish!  This was two coats for full coverage.  Formula and drying time were really great.  For the Konad, I used m78 with Konad Special White.  I wanted to use something that was a bit of a wild animal print, since they are the wildcats, after all!  I may have to pick up the full leopard print Konad at some point in time for another game day.. :)

Indoors, artificial light, no flash (please forgive the fuzzy lack of macro here!)
  Once again, tried to stay a bit cleaner, and think it was much better this time.  I am also excited to try out the paint brush with acetone idea shown to me by one of my followers - hopefully that will help out even more!  Had a bit of problems picking up the full Konad one a few of these nails, but then got them almost all perfect on my non-picture hand.  I guess I should start with that hand and do the picture hand second, haha.  I also had a bit of smearing of the Konad this time, I don't think I waited long enough before the top coat - oops. These smudges are almost impossible to see on the real nails, but the macro sure picks them up well!

Go Cats!
  Do you all paint your nails up special for your favorite sports teams?  I would love to see some of your team-spirit nails!  :)
