Pink Footballs!! - Day 7 of 14 days of February Pinks

Happy Super Bowl!!


For our 7th day of February Pinks I said, 'why not?' and went ahead and painted some Sweet and Sexy pink footballs!  Ok, maybe they're Zoya Sweet and China Glaze Sexy Lady, but I still think they look pretty adorable :)  I used Nailene's White Skinny Tip Pen for all the white detailed designs (what would I do without that thing?).  I painted the base with three coats of Zoya Sweet, a big favorite of mine.  Sweet is the perfect, sweet, delicate pink.  I discovered it on tPF and just fell in love.  I have a few bottles and I've given some as gifts - this is a shade I REALLY love!  For the footballs I used China Glaze Sexy Lady... a shade I'm kind of ambivalent on.  It's a little redder than I expected - I was hoping for a hot pink, but this is more of a very dark pink just hinting at red.

before the stripes

some random bobblehead I found in J's office
He explained it was a gag gift, something about the Jets and the Dolphins and his uncle.


And a signed football my sister's boyfriend gave him (that's why there's a tag on it).

Zoya Sweet = Sweetness
Similar to Lippmann Constant Craving but a brighter pink.

Which team are you rooting for?  I'm not a huge football fan (ok, I don't even think I'd call myself a fan), but I tend to prefer to root for whichever team happens to be winning.  I'm totally ok jumping on the football bandwagon!  Unless, of course, the Ravens are playing - then that's the team that I (and my Dad!) root for :)
