Blanche Does Tennis

I was inspired by a tennis outfit that Blanche Devereaux wore in an episode of Golden Girls. I couldn't find a picture of it so I went by memory and probably got it all wrong. I started with a base of White on White (China Glaze) and put down some striping tape. I then painted each block with Banana (Sally Girl), Coconut (Sally Girl), and I Lilac You (Rimmel London) and removed the striping tape.

I picked up the two Sally Girl polishes, Banana and Coconut, on a whim. I was at Sally Beauty Supply and they were there on the counter and I couldn't resist.  The display was called "Smell the Colors" but I didn't notice that they were scented polishes until I used them. How daft of me! They smell quite nice. I wish I would have grabbed the rest of the colors.

I just realized that I did a tennis outfit inspired manicure right after swatching In the Rough (China Glaze) which my boyfriend said reminded him of a tennis ball.  Tennis week, anyone? Kidding!
