Are you ready for some football??!

Hey y'all!!!!!! Ok so today is NICOLE and I's very last post for our little Friday Football Nail Series we've been doing together for the past 5 weeks! It went by so fast! I hope we inspired you to try some nails to support your personal favorite teams! This Friday for our last nails & posts we are doing 'General Football' nails...just something to represent football as a game & as a whole.  If you couldn't already gather, I love me some football. I didn't always watch it. I really started getting into football my freshman year of college in 2005. My parents arent sport watchers at all. They started watching pro tennis on tv when I started playing tennis. And once I started attending the University of Arkansas & was going to the games as a student, they just had no choice but to start watching & loving the Arkansas Razorbacks.  To end this series I will give yall an update on my 3 teams:

  • My alum, the Bentonville HS Tigers are now 10-0 for the season & won their 6th straight Conference Championship.  They have bye for the first round of play-offs tonight. Their first play-off game will be next Friday. I hope they pull off another perfect season & win the State Championship again! Go Tigers!
  • My Arkansas Razorbacks are making some slight improvements - We are 2-3 in SEC Conference & 4-5 overall.  Sadly we don't look like we'll be playing in any Bowl Games this season :( Tomorrow we take on the #8 South Carolina Gamecocks there. GO HOGS! Woo Pig Sooie! 
  • The New Orleans Saints are 3-5 right now & play the Atlanta Falcons Sunday night. GEAUX SAINTS!!! 
To interpret my overall love of the game of football on my nails - 
  •  I did 'football' laces on my thumbs by painting the whole nail with L'oreal "Downtown Chic"...really impressed with the formula on this polish! And then i used a Sally Hansen nail art pen in white to paint on the center laces
  • On my ring nails, I wanted to do the '50 yard line'. So I painted the the whole nail with Essie "Mojito Madness" then used the SH pen to draw field lines & a number 50. 
  • On the rest of the nails I painted them with 1 coat of Butter London "Tart With A Heart" then freehanded the tips with more of the L'oreal "Downtown Chic"
  • I finished it all off with Out The Door Fast Dry making a switch from Seche Vite to OTD because I'm tired of the shrinkage + chemical hazards of SV. Im loving it so far!

Head on over to Nicole's blog - Polish Me, Please! to see her interpretation of 'General Football' nails!!! 

We hope yall have enjoyed this little 5-week series Nicole & I did! It was so fun just like Nicole, and it helped keep me on my toes of trying to be creative & attempt new nail art. Maybe somewhere down the road we can come up with another nail series for yah! Stay tuned in for next week's BREAKING DAWN PART 2 'Twinsie' post that I'll be doing with Amanda from The Nail Polish Enthusiast!! We are doing our nails for this last Twilight Saga movie premiere!
