Nail Art: Football Tips

Are you ready for some football!?

I’m sorry…I couldn’t help it! Both the college and pro football seasons are right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. To celebrate the occasion it only seemed right to do a little nail art.

To create this manicure I did the same DIY Velvet Manicure as I did for my Tennis Ball manicure. I used Essie Mojito Madness as a base and lime colored flocking powder to create the “grass”. Once I did the velvet manicure I used a Q-Tip with acetone to remove the green on my pointer finger so I could add a football. Color Club Charity Ball is a perfect football color!

I realize this isn’t the most wearable manicure. So, below the jump I did a more wearable version. There are also more swatches below the jump!

Are you excited for football season? If so, what teams do you cheer for?

  8. […] Football Field Nails: If having a football on every nail is a bit much for you there’s an easy solution to that! Turn the rest of your nails into a football field. All you need for this is a green and white polish (I used Essie Mojito Madness and Ulta Snow White) and a nail art brush. Don’t forget to make the thumb the 50 yard line!
