How To: Orange October manis

OMG it’s orange October! And, no, I’m not just talking about the pumpkins. The Baltimore Orioles have made it to the postseason for the first time in 15 years. Fifteen years?! It’s about time! GLHQ is obvi stoked and decked in orange since we’re based in Baltimore. To get in on the action, I painted not one, but two grand-slam manis for the occasion.


Up at bat: chic halo nail art on the left followed by splatter on the right. Why two designs? I don’t trust my left hand to make a neat halo. That, and at least the splatter mani is supposed to be messy.


Not root, root, rooting for my home team or any baseball team? These designs double as a non-spooky Halloween mani. Definitely worth taking a swing at, right?


Splatter up!


The players:

Clear coat

Base coat

Color coats of your choice

Fingernail polish remover (or fingernail polish thinner if you have it)

Tape (Scotch or masking)

Newspaper (to keep your workspace clean)


The lineup:

1. After a clear coat, paint your base coat. Let dry

Tip: Pick a lighter color for your base, so that the other colors will be more visible.



2. Tape around your nails. This makes cleanup waaay easier.



3. Dip the straw into your nail polish and blow from polish-free end (natch).

Tip: Short blasts are best. Huffing and puffing? Ugh, the worst.


4. Repeat with a different straw for your following colors. Let dry. (I got a little antsy and took most of the tape off before taking the picture--whoops!)



5. Remove tape and clean up the mess around the nails.



6. Cover with clear coat and voilà!


Rounding the bases


The players:

Clear coat

Base coat

Outline coat

Nail pen, thin brush or toothpick (if you’re really steady)


The lineup:

1. After a clear coat, paint your base color. Let dry.



2. Carefully paint the outline of your nails.

Tip: Too tricky for one stroke? Try one side at a time, then picking up where you left off. Round it out to make it seamless.  



3. Cover with clear coat and voilà!


And just like before with Ravens in the playoffs, I’ll whip up a mani for when the O’s advance in the postseason. It’s O time!


Are you stoked for postseason and pumpkin season? Blog about it, babes.

Makeup with gray undertones is way trendy. Whether it's gray-green polish or smoky purple eyeliner, silver looks seriously cool on everyone.
