Super Bowl Nails!

 Here I am back again. I could give you a list of reasons why I haven't posted in a while but the big one is: I am a lazy sod. On to today's nails.

I live in New England, so today I will be going to a friends house for a Super Bowl Party. The colors I have chosen work for both teams, but deep down I will be routing for the Patriots.

It was hard for me to figure out what kind of manicure I could do that didn't scream LOOK AT ME I LOVE AMERICA WOOOO since the Pats colors are red, white, blue and silver.
There are sparkles hiding on my middle finger

My husband saw me struggling and actually suggested this. The blue I used is Sinful Colors "Ciao Bella" which is a nice dark blue with some shimmer in it, I had an issue actually finding a dark blue. I have found that often times blues look much darker when they are in the bottle than on the nail.

The Crackle I used is Sally Hansen "Fractured Foil". I made sure to put it on thick to get some nice big cracks for the blue to show nicely.

I put this manicure on my hands and then ended up doing bath time for the little lady and two of my nails started to peel at the tips. I cleared them off, put down the base of blue, decided to put some sparkle on (because why not!), and then crackled them. The sparkle I put on them is Confetti "Tinsel" You can just barely see the sparkles but it's just enough that it makes me smile when I notice them.
