CND Vinylux for Game Day. Are you ready for some football…manis that is?

Allow me to “kick off” with a little back story! When I was in high school…like eons ago, I was a loyal “WHS Husky”. Our school mascot was a fierce canine as was our football team, and our colors were black and orange. Yeah, can you hear me yawning? Don’t get me wrong. I adored my alma mater, our mascot, our fabulous campus and MOST of my teachers. 😉 But honestly, our school colors were the colors of Halloween! But, going to football and basketball games were always proud and memorable events. We donned our school colors, wrapped fuzzy black and orange angora thread around our steady boyfriend’s class ring and spent countless nights shouting “Go Huskies” ’till we were hoarse. By the way, I personally do not have a preference this year since my own home pro team didn’t qualify…again! 😉 Have I painted a proper picture for you?

Speaking of painting, it’s a great time to be a pro football fan and you’re going to want to paint your nails with your team’s colors or even attempt some nail art. Man, I wish we were more adventurous with our manis back then! We are literally just around the corner from the Big Game! Time to grab some polishes representing your favorite team, whether they’re from Seattle or New England.

Whether you're rooting for New England (colors on the left are "Hollywood" and "Midnight Swim") or Seattle (colors on the right are Lush Tropics and Indigo Frock) you'll find the perfect combination of shades with CND Vinylux Weekly Polishes from Loxa Beauty. www.shoploxa.com

Score one for New England with a super simple mani!

Your New England inspired mani can be as simple as this one using striping and dots, and a little star. I used Hollywood and Midnight Swim. For the accent finger I used a shimmery pigskin brown topped laced with some white striping tape.

Seattle touches down at the goal post with a fun dotticure.

For my Seattle look I used Lush Tropics and Indigo Frock. I used a white striper polish for the goal post and the same brown shimmer for the tiny football!

Aren’t these colors fun? Let me digress a bit before sending you off to the big game. You know when you begin those last four years of secondary education, you rarely have a choice just because might have a distaste for the school’s colors. I’m just glad we got to wear black graduation robes instead of bright orange! Potential college recruits do have a little more variety in their futures. Whether your future grad gown is pomegranate or puce, you do tend to identify with your alliances by the colors they embrace. When you become a pro football fan, it’s no different. How you identify with your team may be even more intense. By this time you don’t care what your home team’s colors are. You might paint your face, wear frighteningly unattractive headgear, and now you find yourself freezing your buns off barbecuing from the back of your SUV in a parking lot! See? Now our allegiance has REALLY matured! LOL

As always, CND polishes are quick drying and easy to apply. Brushes are super nice. I used two coats of each shade. Here are the polishes from CND Vinylux that might score big in your playbook. Be sure to check the links below! Oh, here is another huge SCORE for you! Your DISCOUNT CODE is $5 off of $25 or more! Code: 8FU9JG

  1. My high school colors were also black and orange! Our mascot was the HAWK…too cool, right? My brother was three years ahead of me and yep, they wore the bright orange gowns. We still have the photos to prove it…yikes! Luckily by the time it was my turn to graduate they switched over to black. Whew…orange is SO not my color!

    And your color combos are awesome! Great job!

    • LOL, you’re the first person I’ve heard having the same HS colors as we did! Yeah, I glad they switched over to black gowns. Not to mention graduation photos must have been horrendous. Well, back in my day, we took two shots for our senior portraits. These were mandatory so no room for fashion. One photo pose had to be wearing the grad gown. And one had to be (for us girls) wearing either a pale blue or pale pink fur wrap around our shoulders! The photos of course were taken in black and white then the hard copy prints were “colorized” and printed out! They looked amazing really, and no pimples! LOL Yep, they tweaked our photos without Photoshop! And thank you! The polish shades were picked out for me 😉
