IT’S GAME DAY! 🙂

So those of you who know me, know I’ve been waiting for November 6, 2011 for about 7+ months (or however long ago the 2011 NFL schedule was released).

PACKERS & CHARGERS. It isn’t about ‘versus’ because I love both teams equally. Call me crazy, weird or even confused, but I’m 100% sure about my love for both teams. (Again, if you know me, you know the story).

I’m really looking forward to seeing Aaron Rodgers and company play in San Diego, and I’m also really hoping Philip Rivers and company have the “worst day ever” behind them.

I am so excited for this game. I really hope it is a good one!

And of course, in honor of the blue and yellow & the green and yellow, here are my Chargers and Packers nails. I hope you like them!

For my Chargers nails I used Jo, Zoya which is a nice, light, cloudy blue and Bring on the Bling, OPI for the gold (it’s gold sparkles with a combination of pink/green glitter too).

For my Packers nails I used British Racing Green, butter LONDON which is a nice, forest green and also Bring on the Bling, OPI for the gold.

Here you go:

Hello and (a belated) Welcome to October!!
As ESPN nicely put it, October is all about the fall season, MLB playoffs, football, pumpkins and more football.
More importantly, October is Breast Cancer Awarness month.
 It is the one month where it is acceptable for women and men alike to sport the color pink at sporting events.
Since it is the beginning of the month and it is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I decided to dedicate my manicure to the color pink.
Today marks the first NFL sunday in October and all throughout the NFL today and for the rest of the month you will see NFL personnel wearing pink shoes, armbands, and wiping their sweat away with pink towels.

For my pink manicure I decided to use butter LONDON (again) in Teddy Girl, which is a nice, light pink, Teenage Dream, OPI from Katy Perry’s collection, which is a  glittery pink top coat, and I used OPI Pink Shatter on top of that to add a little pizzazz.

After I used the pink shatter  I wasn’t very pleased with the ‘shattered look’ so I decided to add another coat of Katy Perry’s OPI, Teenage Dream to sparkle it up some more!

I first saw Teddy Girl by butter LONDON on a friend of mine who has a lighter skin tone than mine and it looked good. It was a nice light pink without being to washed out AKA white looking. Since I have darker skin I was afraid it would be too loud since it is a pale pink, but I was pleasantly surprised when it looked the way I imagined a milky pink to be! 🙂

I took pictures of each polish after I applied them onto my nails so there’s quite a few pictures in this post….so bare with me!

I hope you enjoy my Breast Cancer Awareness manicure!
