Fall into Autumn 5: Football

So today, I would like to show my football nails... I did them for the Fall into Autumn Challenge, and well, are supposed to be (American) Football nails, but I decided otherwise. I'm following a fellow challenge member who had the same problem I do: We can't relate very much to the sport. It's not a big thing here. I have never watched a game at all. It's different with football aka Fußball aka soccer though. I'm not a fan either, but I can relate to this sport. It's inevitable here in Germany. :D

What I came up with is still not very creative, but it was fun doing.

My pinky doesn't like to be photographed lately. It likes to hide or bend away from the rest. :D

Products I used for this mani include a grassgreen beauty uk polish (from my untrieds, yay), the every so often used and still unnamed Color Club white, some black acrylic paint and my beloved essence BTGN Top Sealer. I'm on my 7th bottle now!

And because I was asked to do some tutorials on how I do my nail art, I'll try to remember to take pictures while I'm painting. For this one, I remembered, but honestely... there's not much to explain. Hence, just three pictures.

Left: Paint your nails with base color of your choice
Middle: Paint the half moon white. I freehanded, but you could tape it off too
Right: Using black acrylic paint, add the pattern and seal with topcoat

Okay, I'll try to do a better job next time. ^^; This is new to me and I'm not very good at explaining...


  1. I love your soccer nails! I did a summer exchange in Berlin during the 2010 world cup and I can tell you that it was a great experience to see everyone becoming one to watch the Fußball games :)

    1. Thank you! I had that experience for the 2006 world cup. That was the first time I was ever interested in soccer and it was awesome... :D

  2. Hi, your soccer nails are great! I was smiling, as I saw what its possible. I never thougt about soocer nails. Love it.


  3. I love that you took the prompt quite literally and translated it into a great and simple mani! Love.

    1. It seemed the best choice for a football-illiterate to evade the subject ;)

  4. I love this!!!! I am so glad that some of the ladies decided to do Fußball nails :)
