Ferrari Nails

 For those that don't follow me on Twitter we went to Tokyo for the 30Th anniversary of the Auto Salon over the weekend. The Tokyo Auto Salon is the largest auto show in the world so I had to do my nails for it. I decided on doing Ferrari mostly because they are one of my favorites and the emblem was great for nail art.
 As great as the emblem was I had a hard time deciding on a design. Eventually, I ended up with just the prancing pony on my ring fingers with a yellow base, the remaining fingers a base of "race red" and my middle finger had a yellow stripe with the Italian flag striped down it. I did use my nail sticker technique to make the ponies so they were close in size and because I wasn't sure if I could do such small details with my right hand.
 I used OPI Alpine Snow for the base on my ring fingeres and layered Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow over it and OPI You Make Me Vroom for the rest of my fingers, the pony and flag are acrylic paint.
 Here is the picture before we left.


 And at the show with a few of the Ferrari's.




 We spent the entire day there and my legs and back were killing me at the end but we had a fantastic time! It was worth it, so glad we went.
 What did you do over the weekend, anything fun or did you just relax?
