I actually did these nails on a whim, but I am so happy with how they turned out. Even if you are not a sports fan, you are probably aware of the whole mess with the National Football League and the referee strike. On Monday Night Football, the fill-in refs apparently made terrible calls, and everyone and their brother complained about it on Facebook. On Wednesday I painted my nails this lovely shade of green from Cult Nails
(called "Deal With It" ha ha), and on Thursday my hubby wanted to head downtown to watch the game. I couldn't leave the house without SOME kind of nail art (my friends pretty much expect to see something on my nails, and I hate to disappoint, ha ha), so I got out my paints and did this:
HOME RUN FOR THE SEAHAWKS! (oh wait...)
I started with a little white body and hat for the ref. I used acrylic paint to do this part and the other art in this manicure.
Then I added ref stripes and the black wrist cuffs and collar. Look ma! No head!! (Ironic, much?!)
Finally I used some peach toned paint mixed with white and black to make the hands and the head and facial features. I also added a little whistle for him to blow. That's right dude, you blow. Heh, heh.
And I would like to point out that the placement of the little ref on my middle finger was no accident. ;-)
