The fall season is upon us and that means the leaves will be changing colors and falling off their branches, school has begun again, and football is back on television. Are you a die-hard football fan or maybe you just go to your school’s game to show your support? If you do either one or fall somewhere in between, today’s blog is for you. Sometimes it’s nice to do your nails in school colors or just a football theme. Here are some nail art ideas with football in mind:
Paint one vertical line and three short horizontal ones to create the stitches.
Another idea would be to use your favorite team’s colors and draw the football on top. Don’t forget to let each side dry before polishing the other color. Also make sure everything is dry before adding the white as you don’t want the other colors to cause the white to smear.
Another great idea is to make the green on your nails to look like the turf the football players play on. Here’s a short tutorial to create this cool look:
Paint your nails green. Dark green looks more like astroturf if you use it under the lighter green flocking.
Paint a second coat of green, and while your nails are still wet, sprinkle green flocking on your finger. You can buy it any craft store.
Tap your nail just like you would glitter after you stuck it down to glue, and you’re done with the grass part. (You will probably still have some left on your hands, but you can just wash it off.)
Paint your pointer finger dark brown.
Draw football stitches on it with white nail polish.
And finally, maybe you just want something simple like a football on your nails. In this picture you have the steps to turn your nails into cute footballs. Whatever you do, have fun!
