Tailgate Party!

I'm part of the Culture Committee group at work that plans events and fun activities for our organization. Last week, I was in charge of the tailgate party pot luck where I advertise, promote, plan, set up, and tear down the event. I had just gotten my order from Llarowe which included a silky brown Color Club polish called Fondue For Two and this was the perfect opportunity to use it - Football Nails!

As I was brainstorming how I would make this nail art a reality, I remembered the big box of flocking powders in all different colors that my Uncle Mark had given me for Christmas last year. I hadn't gotten to use them yet and thought they'd be perfect to top a couple of nails with for a realistic turf effect!

I absolutely LOVE the Color Club polish. It's the most perfect shade of chocolate in two coats and the formula is so silky and smooth. I just don't see how it could get any better than this!
The nail art was super easy to do - a couple stripes and lines with a striping brush and just a couple of dips into the flocking powder with wet nails for the others.
I love how they turned out!
What do you think?

  1. Hi Jen, this mani is so fitting for your event. I've heard the flocking powder actually holds up pretty well, too. Did it make it through your party, even the clean-up?

    1. Thank you! It definitely turned some heads. LOL It held up for about two days (two showers and lots of hand washing) and then I noticed some patches where there was no flocking powder. I was surprised it lasted that long!
