Sporting Mani’s – Super Bowl vs. Australian Tennis Open

The beginning of February is upon us and so is the culmination of the NFL season with the much anticipated 2017 Super Bowl. Whether you’re a Patriots or a Falcons fan, we have some hot tips to make your nails scream Super Bowl fab! If you’re attending a party or just watching from your couch, we’ve found the perfect polishes to make your mani match your team.

If you’re a fan of the Atlanta Falcons you’ll be rocking a combination of red, white, and black. We recommend Essie ‘Aperitif’ as your red, Sinful Colors ‘Black on Black’ as your black and for white we love China Glaze ‘White on White’.

New England Patriots are similar, with team colors of red, navy and white. We found Essie ‘Really Red’ to be the perfect bright red, Sally Hansen ‘Ja Cozy’ is the perfect blue and China Glaze ‘White on White’ doubles as a great color for the Patriots.

As for nail art, we recommend just going wild with your colors. Stripes, spots, maybe even some silver glitter to jazz it up? Not everyone has the time (or skills) to paint their team logo on each fingernail. Just go with it and let your creativity flow! At times, it is more fun to just go freestyle when it comes to your nail art.

While the Americans are following football and counting down the minutes to the Super Bowl, in Down Under we are following a very different sport. For Australians, the Tennis is on our screens for the entire month of January, with competitions in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and most famously the Grand Slam that is the Australian Open in Melbourne. Every year we watch the competitions that lead to the Australian Open, the sport is not only on everyone’s lips but also the fashion and style that comes with it. With the rise in popularity of nails and nail art, the players have embraced adding manicured nails as the perfect accessory to their outfit choice.

Our top looks from this year’s Australian Open were Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark and arguably the tennis queen of Nails (and tennis in general) Serena Williams. Wozniacki matched her nails to her Stella McCartney for Adidas dress, a gorgeous shade of blue. While Williams went with rounded claw shaped nails in an off-white color, matching her custom Nike dress.

So what are your favorite looks for this sporting season? Will you be wearing your Super Bowl team’s colors on your nails or will you be taking inspiration from Serena? Let us know by commenting below! Don’t forget to send us pictures of your 2017 Super Bowl manis!
