Let's Go GIANTS: My Superbowl Mani

Hello Lacquer Luvers & football fans!! As you all know, or should know, today is Superbowl Sunday & that means I have a kick-ass sports mani to share with you all! Tonight I will be rooting for the NY Giants because, well, my Grandma wouldn't have it any other way. She was born & raised in NY & has never missed a game. So Grammy, this one's for you!

I began my manicure with a base of Essie Grow Faster followed by two coats of OPI DS Magic. DS Magic perfectly matched a jersey that my Uncle got my son for Christmas when he was a baby. It's a beautiful dark blue polish full of glass flecks. In the right lighting & angle, this baby flashes a bit of purple. Application & formula were both flawless. This polish honestly just kind of glides on your nails & dry time was a little faster than average.

Once DS Magic dried it was time for nail art. I was inspired by the gear the players will be wearing; namely the football jerseys (pinky, middle, index, & thumbs) & helmets (ring finger). I wanted to mimic the look of the netting in the jersey & an image from Konad's M79 plate was perfect for what I was going for. I used my Konad Special Stamping Polish in white for the design. The Giants' helmets are blue with a red stripe going down the middle. I used Scotch tape & Kiss Nail Art paint in red to imitate the helmets on my ring finger. This sports mani was finished with Essie's Good To Go topcoat.

See how the jersey has the cross stitching and dots in the middle? Is this not the perfect stamp for that look? =)

Goooo Giants!!

Well Lacquer Luvers, I would love to know what you all think of my NY Giants manicure! What are your plans for the game tonight? Who will you be rooting for? I plan on staying home and ordering pizza & wings. Oh & the new season of The Voice premiers after the Superbowl & I can't wait for that! As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo! GOOOOO GIANTS!!!



  1. Looks great! I think it matches the theme of the game and the Giants without being too in your face, especially the accent nails. As soon as I saw the red stripe I immediately thought of the Giants helmet! Perfect blue to match the Giants colors.

  2. Awesome mani. And great to dedicate it to my mom. She is a die-hard Giants fan. Glad they won (for mom) LuvMyLacquerMom

  3. Love the mani! Congrats your team won!

  4. Love your mani!! I know you're a happy girl today ;0).
