Happy football day! I just love, love, love watching football! I was raised in a football house, in a football school, in a football town! I live in Canton, OH - the home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I was in the marching band in high school and attended each and every football game (would you believe I was Band Prom Queen my senior year?). I was born and raised a Steelers fan, even though I technically live in Cleveland Browns territory. While the Steelers haven't had the best season ever, I still love to follow along. :) I wore these nails on Thanksgiving for the Pittsburgh-Baltimore game!
I started out with a white base, butter LONDON Cotton Buds. I used my striping brush to apply my stripes in butter LONDON Union Jack Black and Julep Catrina. For the striped nails, it was that easy! On my accent nail, I used my striping brush and Catrina, Priti NYC Canterbury Bells, and Wet N Wild Wild Shine Red Red to create my rendition of the Steeler's logo. If you are attempting the Steeler logo, I would suggest starting with the red star...it just makes it easier to line it up (figured that out after starting with the yellow one and having to start over!). Everything is sealed in with Glisten & Glow HK Girl.
When I shared a sneak peek of this manicure on Instagram, someone asked if I could do a tutorial. I'm not going to do a full tutorial, since this manicure is basically just a recreation of COVERGIRL's #NailGating fanicure that I saw on All Lacquered Up a few weeks back! It's a great idea really...pick your team and they tell you which colors to use! While I didn't use CoverGirl polishes, you get the idea! You can click [here] for their step-by-step of this manicure, though I would suggest starting out with a white base, and then use striping tape if you're not comfortable with free-handing. Use a striping brush to add the black and yellow detail and then remove the striping tape!
Also...a quick shot of my right hand....stripes with a football done in Priti NYC Chocolate Daisy and It's So Easy StripeRite in white! Sorry for the little chip...I was a bad blogger and took these photos after wearing them for a few days!
I'll always be a Steelers girl, but I am also really, really enjoying watching Petyon Manning and the Broncos this year! My mom always told me that you always root for the AFC team in the Super Bowl, even if it's not Pittsburgh, so I decided to watch Denver pretty close this year from the beginning :) Which team is your favorite?!
