Hey there Nail Enthusiasts!

My favorite part of Fall …. besides the changing of the leaves.. and of course Halloween.. is the start of Football Season! ¬†Although I live in New England.. I’m a Big Pittsburgh Steelers fan! .. sorry to disappoint.. Pat’s Fans. ūüėČ

This past Sunday I was fooling around and in anticipation for the 1pm kick-off, I decided to show some love to #steelersnation & tweet a fellow nail blogger¬†Michelle Mismas from All Lacquered Up¬†@alllacqueredup a little snap shot of my BiG BEN Jersey… well knowing she’s a Die Hard Cleveland Browns¬†Fan! ¬†I was so excited when she tweeted back and asking where my matching nails were?! ¬†Well, I felt like such a half a fan! ¬†How could I have overlooked the something so crucial?

Since my dominant hand was already painted, I used my non-dominant hand and got to work!  Doing the best I could using my left hand I painted my right to show my Steeler Love!

All and all… for being a righty… I thought it came out pretty good! ¬†The plus was that it only took me about 20 minutes! ¬†.. and yes, if you were wondering.. I am rocking a totally different pattern on my left hand… which will be revealed on Wednesday… fashion inspired of course. ¬†ūüėČ ¬†The colors are similar to my Steelers colors.. so i figured I could get away with uneven hands for a couple of days. ūüėČ

In addition to all this exciting stuff @covergirl has teamed up with the NFL offering Team Inspired nail looks for women all season long!

NFL Style Lounges inside select stadiums will offer complimentary COVERGIRL “fanicures” featuring home team-inspired nail art using COVERGIRL nail polish. Fans visiting the lounge will not only get to shop for the newest fan gear made just for women, but also will have opportunities to consult with a professional stylist, listen to music performed by an on-site DJ and strut their game day glam style in a team-themed photo booth.

Style Lounges will take place at the following home games: Atlanta Falcons (9/29), Chicago Bears (10/6), Houston Texans (10/13), Jacksonville Jaguars (10/20), Philadelphia Eagles (10/27), Dallas Cowboys (11/3), New York Giants (11/10), Denver Broncos (11/17), Arizona Cardinals (11/24), and Tennessee Titans (12/15).

— Making sure to get into all the game-day action, COVERGIRL will also be participating in the pre-game fanfare outside of NFL stadiums with “nailgating” activations.

Mobile manicure stations on-board the COVERGIRL¬†bus will offer female fans the chance to rock an official NFL “fanicure” in support of either the home or away team.

Nailgating will take place at the following home games: Cincinnati Bengals (9/16), Dallas Cowboys (9/22), New York Giants (10/6), Chicago Bears (10/10), Minnesota Vikings (10/27), New England Patriots (11/3) and Baltimore Ravens (11/10).

Step 1: I started off with solid nails, White, Black & Yellow.

Step 2: To get the stars I used my nail art duo pens from Art Club. Using the striping brush I created  3 small crosses which later I filled in with their colors.

Step 3: After I made my stars I used a thin medium length paint brush to paint a half circle. Using Azature Light Gray Diamond Polish.  Then I filled  in any remaining areas outside the gray with black polish using my striping brush.

Step 4:  The stripes on the other nails were made with the same Nail Art Duo Pens using the Striping brush in White and in Black.

Step 4:  Following up the rest of the nails with my favorite dry fast top coat Seche Vite!

    You did an awesome job. The stars look so clean and precise. I’m jealous of your skills but NOT of your team ūüėČ
