For any BB15 fans that come across this article- I’m hosting a nail art challenge with Brijit and Eeeek this July! Today is DAY 28 of our challenge and the theme is INSPIRED BY A TV SHOW. Since I had to paint my nails with a tv show theme today- I naturally chose my absolute fave tv show of all time- Big Brother US! Right now season 15 of BB is full swing! And my two favorite BB15 cast members are Amanda and McCrae– so this mani is for you guys! I hope you win!
I printed a couple pics of these two love birds from the CBS BB15 website and trimmed them with scissors to fit my nails. Then I put on a healthy coat of Revlon Quick Dry Topcoat and slapped those babies right on my nails. I had to squish the pics down on my nails for a few seconds to make sure they were secure. This worked pretty well since the quick dry topcoat dried fast and acted as a glue. (BTW- I tried the newspaper nails technique using photos printed on printer paper- TOTAL FAIL. So if you ever wondered whether newspaper nails works with printer paper- it doesn’t.)
I painted my other nails in bright colors and added cool stamps to bring Amanda and McCrae some good luck! My pointer finger is painted with Elephantastic Pink by OPI and I stamped some hearts on top to bring them some good love vibes. My pinkie finger is painted green with Orly Jealous, Much? and I stamped some dollar signs on top in hopes that they’ll win the big money prize at the end!
Do you watch BB15 ? And what do you think of my Amanda and McCrae nails?
It’s not too late to join in on our nail challenge- it will be open til Aug 5th 2013. More info here! Check out the other TV show inspired nails below….
