Olympic Nails...Men's Hockey Takes Gold!

These were the nails I did last night in anticipation of Canada men's team playing in the gold/silver game this morning.  They must have been good luck charms because Canada took the gold medal against Sweden this morning!  Yea, Canada!


Started with a base of two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and American Apparel Downtown LA, topped with SV.


Stamped using black and white Konad special polish using Nail Art Diva WB08-4 (middle play and hockey sticks on thumb), LO 06 (go on thumb), fauxnad m56 (Canada on thumb), MJ XVIII (shirt on pinky) and OB-M (ring and index).  Touched up a bit of mistamping on the maple leafs with polish and brush.


Added red polish to the hockey player using a brush as well as a few random maple leafs from Mash26. 


Topped with SV to finish.  While not that noticeable IRL, but enough to bother me, I seen some missing red on the middle finger on the maple leaf as well as minor polish drag.  


Fixed the SV drag with acetone and a brush after it had dried, then added a dot of polish to the missing area. Topped again with SV.


The Olympic games are now over...there were some highs and lows but as usual, they were exciting to watch the last two weeks! Congrats to all Olympians whether or not you medalled...I'm sure it was an amazing experience just being...and getting...there!

Thanks for looking!

  4. Even my husband would have worn one of these nails if I could have done them. Thanks to your sources, though, I have ordered Canadian flag stamping plate fauxnad m56, and one with Canadian football team symbols on, that he's a big fan for! Thanks!
