A baseball diamond is a girl's best friend

So today's challenge was "Gimme that Bling" but all I could think about was that baseball season is finally starting up again. So I decided to dedicate this manicure to my favorite kind of diamond!

I started with 5 coats of China Glaze In the Limelight. I had forgotten what a pain in the butt neons are... and it chipped in less than 24 hours! It is a pretty color though...

I then added 4 different baseball designs using dotting tools and some brushes. In case you can't tell, index to pinky: baseball bat, baseball, field, and cap. 

I think the cap is my favorite design, what do you think?

Check out these bloggers (who probably didn't cheat on today's challenge!)
