You didn’t think I was just a college football fan, did you? Well, truthfully, up until last year I didn’t pay much attention to the NFL. But when my hometown team drafted Cam Newton, a Heisman winning quarter back who led Auburn, my alma mater, to a national title, I decided it was time to embrace the Panthers.
Tonight the Panthers take on the NY Giants and while the NFL definitely doesn’t know how to tailgate like the SEC, I don’t feel right tailgating without themed nails. I hesitate to call this manicure nail art because it is so simple but alas, the pinky did involve some “nail art”.
According to Wikipedia (started by an Auburn grad, by the way) the Panthers colors are black, Panthers blue, silver and white. I had no idea teams could have 4 colors. But I digress. For black I used OPI Light My Sapphire, for Panthers blue I used OPI Ogre the Top Blue and for silver I used Essie No Place Like Chrome. I decided to add a football, which is similar to the football from my Football Tips manicure, on my pinky using Color Club Charity Ball and a white nail art polish.
Like I said, this was a super simple manicure, but it got the point across and I think it’s cute.
Hopefully the Panthers will be able to pull out another win tonight!
