didn't make it to the finals. So, I'll be sporting New York Giants
colors for one night only. Pats fans can't complain, since their
colors are almost
identical (Giants' are blue, red, white and
grey; Pats' are nautical blue, century silver, white and red – I
did my research!).
Rah rah for Super Bowl XLVI! Tonight's
big game deserves a spirited mani, even if
Just like the cascading confetti at the
end of the game, this polka dot tip mani is like a mini celebrating
stadium on your fingers. Too festive for football fans to resist!

more weeks of winter,
because I was ready for flip flop season.
And go figure that after the Ravens
lost in the playoffs, I found this NFL-approved fingernail polish. (Psst! They have 'em for every team, too.)
At least my boyfriend knows what to get me for Valentine's Day. So
stoked for next season!
