Kicker Country Stampede Nails

Working for a radio station has some really awesome perks. One of those perks is working events and therefore getting to go to them and check them out – and some of those events are concerts. 🙂 In Kansas, we have a huge country music event each June. If you’re from around the area you’ve probably heard of it. The Kicker Country Stampede. It’s a three day festival centered around country music. This year the headliners were Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Tim McGraw, and Jake Owen. There were other great artists too. And I got to go for two of those days – mainly to work (of course, right?) but I also had time to listen to some great music and peruse the bazillion vendors there. It was hot and there were a ton of people, but it was a good time. And excuse to do up my nails, of course!!


I wish I had thought to get a photo of my nails WITH my prescribed tee on – one was royal purple, the other was black. (You sweat so much in the Kansas summer heat they give you one for each day.) Here’s a snapshot of the logo – see the swirly fringe around the edges of the logo? That’s the main inspiration for these nails. The copper color matched the orange in the logo perfectly. 🙂


I created it with a double stamp from one plate. I just laid down the white, then the copper, and topped it with black. It came out fantastic and went with the uniform just perfectly. Here’s a shot of it in the sunshine. Totally fun. Totally Stampede. It reminds me of the scrollwork on saddles and boots.
