Retro Bowling Bag Inspired Nail Art Design

This is turning out to be my week of vintage and retro design.  As I mentioned in a previous post earlier  this week a wonderful Instagram @jay_jay_bee is having a giveaway to celebrate accomplishing 1k followers.  For each retro design we submit we earn an extra entry.  I love retro designs so this has really encouraged and inspired me to do some designs I've been wanting to try and also look for other vintage inspirations.

One of the things that comes to mind when I think of retro stuff is bowling.  I was actually going to try to do a bowling shirt design but while perusing the Internet for color inspiration I came across this picture of a bowling ball bag…

I couldn't help recreate  this design on my nails.

I started off with 2 coats of OPI 'You're so Vain‐illa'

I drew a wide stripe vertically down the middle of my nail using OPI 'Ice‐bergers & Fries' and a striping brush.

I then formed a curved triangular shape  on the bottom of the stripe at the tip of my nail.

I used OPI 'Can't Afjord Not To' and the same striping brush to create the curved lines on either side of the center line.  Following the curve of the center triangular shape.

After a little clean up and an application of a nice shiny top coat and there you have a funky fun retro design.  Normally, I would not have done a color combo like this but I think they are pretty close to those on the bowling bag.  I think this design would look really neat with a black,white, and red combination.  What do you think?

This is a great design for a night of bowling or if you like retro design.  You can change the colors to match a team shirt or whatever outfit your wearing.  Checkout @jay_jay_bee on Instagram, while your there be sure to like and follow her, and don't forget about me @polish_plebe.  You can also like and follow me by click the 'Join this Site' icon on the top right hand side of the screen, or through Google+Facebook, Bloglovin, and/or Pinterest.  Thanks for stopping by, see you next time.
