I’m guessing we can all guess what I did this past weekend? In case you haven’t heard, the final for the Women’s World Cup was this past Sunday. US vs. Japan in a weird repeat of the 2011 Final. My nephew gave me the wonderful idea of doing a design for the game and I could not resist.
I know, it looks weird. To most people, only two of these nails make sense — the gradient on my pinkie and thumb. I realize I have this weird trend to do this, but I swear it makes sense!
Last year, I did a manicure for the Men’s World Cup and rather than painting the US flag, I did their jerseys. Ever since then, I’ve inadvertently made it a habit to paint the jerseys of the teams playing. My pointer is the US Women’s jersey and my ring finger is the Japan’s. For my middle, I did a pretty simple version of Canada’s (the host country) logo. While I enjoyed it, not many people understood exactly what they were looking at.
This was all made with polish because I am an idiot. One of these days, I will discover the joys of acrylic paint. Until then, I’ll continue to suffer. Colors are: OPI Alpine Snow, Black Onyx, Coca-Cola Red, Indignantly Indigo, Hot & Spicy, No Room For the Blues, and Essie Mojito Madness.
I swear, that maple leaf looked better in real life. Let me know what you think and if there’s something else you’d like to see. I’ve had a dry spell on inspiration and would love for anyone to drop some.
