Super Bowl Nails!

Good afternoon!  I'm typing this post as I'm making a pot of chili for the game tonight!  Who else is watching??  I'm not a big football fan so not really rooting for either of the teams but will be watching for the half time show and any new cool commercials.  But I do like do to nails based on the game so here's what I came up with this year!  

Started with a base of Great Lakes Lacquer The Traveling Linguist (thumb), Masura Botanical Garden (middle), and OPI Dahlia Darling on the rest, but all but the ring finger were also topped with a coat of Scofflaw Are You A Veronica or A Betty?

Topped all except middle with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.  The middle (I thought) was a texture polish and I wanted the grass texture but it really wasn't much of a texture polish.  I didn't top coat it here but I did later.

Made stamper decals for the index and middle using MJ XXIV and AK Coleccion 35 for the ring finger and small football on pinky using MdU 3, 9 and 22; Moyra SP 02 and 05 and Painted Polish Blanc Slate and Midnight Mischief.  Also added images from UC Sports Fan-01 on middle and pinky.  Gold on index is CND Gold Chrome.

I can't recall which plate this is; I planned on using it but never in the end.

AK Coleccion 35.

Added dots using MdU 9 (the deeper red representing San Fransico) and Moyra Sp. 02 (the brighter red representing Kansas City).  Also added a few gold dots using CND Gold Chrome.  Oh and I did something new (to me) today!  See the NFL logo on the middle?  Well, I first stamped it in navy using Moyra SP 05 and then removed the NFL words.  Made a stamper decal and filled in with the white which was Painted Polish Blanc Slate.  Then I stamped it using a different stamper using the red Moyra SP 02 and then removed all but the words.  Then to put it on the nail, I first stamped the blue logo, then stamped the red words on top of the stamper decal.  Thank goodness for clear stampers!  So cool; it gives way more options for stamping doing this.  (I seen this on the MoYou London site; the gal who is their regular nail model had done it.)

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish. 

Thanks for looking!

  1. Great mani. Not seen the Superbowl in years - not so popular in Scotland!
