Spirit Fingers!

This will be a short-ish post this evening I'm on my way out to a friend's house to watch super bowl 47!

And of course I just HAD to do nail art for the occasion (and it's been a while since I put my freehand skills to work).

Left Hand Baltimore Ravens

Right Hand San Francisco 49ers! 
Since I'm not a huge football fan I couldn't just pick one team or the other, so I painted both! :)

I used the "decal" method for this manicure.. first time trying it but I didn't have time to paint a design on my right hand (using my non-dominant left). I really like this method.

I painted the design on a piece of plastic from a zip-lock bag with nail polish the same as I would on my nails. Waited on the design to dry and then peeled them off and stuck them onto my slightly wet nails.

The football nails were done following a tutorial HERE.

There were way too many polished used in this manicure to list them all, but no acrylic paint was used. 

I'm off to watch the game and eat my face off! :)
