Just For Fun: LA Lakers-Inspired Nail Art


Okay, so it’s not so much “nail art” as it is stripes, since I’m obviously not much of an artist…

But what I’m lacking in artistry, I’m making up for in team spirit because not only do I live in La-la Lakers Land, but I LOVE the Lakers!  Kobe Bryant is obviously THE MAN (don’t hate y’all), but my fave player is actually Derek Fisher for his mad long-distance shooting skills.  You will often hear me yelling “Fiiiiiiiiish!” whenever he has the opportunity for a 3-pointer and I’m sure our neighbors will be pleased as punch once the season is over so I will shut up!  Since I’m an equal opportunity basketball nail art supporter, send me your Celtics or Lakers-inspired nails and I’ll post them!  I know there are some pretty talented Beauty Junkies out there, so email me photos of your NBA-inspired nail art to amber@beautyjunkiesunite.com

For starters, here’s what I used for my Lakers-inspired nail art:

1. Two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Deep Purple on each nail (allow to dry)
2. One swipe of white nail polish (any brand should do)
3. Three stripes of Milani Nail Art Paint in #708 Yellow Design (two of those stripes directly outside of white stripe edges)

Have fun!
