Nails of the Day - Summer Sports

Hey guys!

We've been having some really beautiful weather here lately and so I wanted to do a super summery mani to celebrate that. The bf was hanging out and playing different sports at the park with some of his buddies yesterday while I was at work and it completely inspired me to do a sports themed mani.

I chose 5 different summer sports and interpreted them into a nail art design and although I'm not entirely happy with how it turned out, I still think this is a super fun summer mani. Once again, David was the source of my inspiration so I have to thank him again. :)
