Hey y'all! Today I have my current mani to share with y'all. I've been a fan of the Falcons for all of my life, even went to a ton of games as a kid. However, with this season going so well and the divisional championship's being this weekend I had to do some nail art to help cheer my team on. I was going to wait and post these tomorrow, but I'm impatient and wanted to share right away.
My inspiration was the Matt Ryan jersey that I have. The kiddo has a Julio Jones, but I didn't think I'd be able to get the lettering the way I wanted....so I went the shorter route. Plus, they'll match when I wear it while watching the game this weekend!
Index: Wet N Wild Black Creme with "ATL" in red acrylic paint.
Middle: OPI Coca-Cola Red with "RYAN" & his # in white and black acrylic paint.
Ring: OPI Coca-Cola Red with #RiseUp in black acrylic paint.
Pinky: Essie Little Brown Dress with white acrylic paint to look like a football.
This took a while to do. For the jersey nail I made decals with acrylic paint & a brush on my silicone mat and placed them over the base. For the rest of the nails I actually just drew everything on using a toothpick. Because I used acrylic paint I didn't have to wait long before applying Seche Vite as my top coat.
I love these nails so much, even though they didn't turn out 100% like I wanted them to. I took at least 50 pics and had to narrow it down BIG time.
I'm praying that we win this weekend because I totally want to see a Superbowl rivalry in my house this year (hubs is a Steelers fan). I wish I was going to the game, but I'll be screaming on the comfort of my couch.
