WHEN I SAY BOOMER!

You say SOONER!! Ok, got it ladies?? It's time for FOOTBALL again, yes!! I am a HUGE Oklahoma University football fanatic. I love my Sooners. This Saturday is our first game of the season, so I decided to do a OU themed mani.

I bought a special OU nail polish kit online last year and had not used it yet, so I decided to break it out. I have to say the kit was a major disappointment.

First off, our colors are crimson and cream. The colors that came in the kit are red and white. Not that big of a deal, so I didn't think much of it when I got the kit in the mail last spring.

Second, I don't expect a real quality of nail polish, but I DO expect the brushes to not be bent. It's like the brush is way to long for the size of the bottle, it was a major headache to use. If I didn't get a daily exercise of applying polish 2-3 times a day, I don't know that could have pulled it off. They were THAT bent.

Third problem, the kit included a set of OU logo nail stickers. I painted all fingers red, except the ring fingers I painted white and planned on putting a logo sticker on each ring finger. I could tell as soon as I tried to take the sticker off, the plastic was was to thick and unbendable. How the heck is this supposed to stick on a rounded nail if it doesn't want to bend. I gave it a shot anyway, and sure enough I was right, the sides stuck up. I ended up taking a nail art pen and hand painting the OU logo on my nail.

All that said, it was a great idea but they didn't execute it well at all. All in all I'm pleased with how my OU mani turned out and have even gotten a few compliments on it. So, please enjoy and
GOOOOOOOOOO SOOONERS!!

Super cute with the dots, I think you did good considering all the obstacles you had to deal with! I especially like the OU you did with the nail art pen. Had to be miles better than the sticker.

Glad to know I wasn't the only one to do a mani for the start of college football season! Yours is waay prettier than mine. However, sorry I can't get behind the Sooners.
I'm Oregon all the way. Go Ducks!

That's a really good job. If the Pittsburgh Steelers' look like they are going all the way, maybe I'll have to try that. (The Steelers are my husband's fav team.)
