Football Friday: Las Vegas Bowl Edition

Tomorrow the Huskies will appear in their third bowl game in three years-- the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl. We play the Boise State Broncos-- the first of three meetings over the next two years. This isn't the first time the Huskies will have played an opponent in a bowl game and then turned around to play them the following season-- between 2010 and 2011 the Huskies played Nebraska three times in the span of a year, including a bowl game. It's a little strange, but not unheard of. I'm not really sure how this game will go, honestly. We've beat Boise State before, but that was a different team. We are surely capable of beating them, but given how inconsistent we are offensively, it won't be any easy task, especially if half our team doesn't show up. 

This manicure is super late because I've been busy everyday since last weekend. I was also wracking my brain for what exactly I wanted to do. I wanted to have some bling, since the game is in Vegas, which practically screams bling. You've seen the showgirls, right? Eventually, I decided to recreate a manicure I had done for a friend earlier this year. I used two coats of American Apparel Gold Flash and then layered one to two coats of Sephora by OPI Sugar Plum Fairies Gone Wild over that. And then I decided to get even more creative-- I decided to add some stamping on top of it! I just received some stamping plates and bought myself a stamper, so this is the very first time you're going to see some of my efforts. I am having some issues, but more on that later! I used American Apparel Imperial Purple to stamp a paw print on my ring finger using Mash plate 36.

Sorry for the minimal pictures-- I only finished this manicure tonight because I've been so busy, so I could only take pictures in a couple of lighting conditions! I guess I need to have some of these manicures socked away for future use. I'm not in love with this manicure, mainly because I need to work on my stamping, but it definitely has potential! I do like that it's sparkly, but in a sort of understated way.

Go Dawgs! Beat the Broncos!!
