Football Friday: Pac-12 opener

Sorry there weren't Football Friday posts the last two weeks. Busy, tired, unmotivated... yadda yadda yadda. I'm back! This weekend conference play starts and we are playing Stanford. This week is our "blackout" game, where fans are encouraged to wear black. This usually occurs for night games, but our game on Saturday is at 1, so it seems a bit silly. Oh well. I'll be out there in my black jersey, cheering along!

I decided I wanted a bright polish for the game, so I pulled out one of my favorites: Illamasqua Prosperity. This polish has a "rubber" finish and dries to a shiny semi-matte finish. I love it! Prosperity is a vivid purple with magenta tones, though of course my camera hates it and makes it look very blue toned. I'm pretty sure I used two coats here (sorry, no notes) and was incredibly easy to work with. Definitely a winner for me, whether or not we win the game on Saturday.

I want to show you what a little chameleon Prosperity-- in real life it's much brighter as well!

Go Dawgs! Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Nice purple! I like the rubber/matter finish it dries to.

  2. I love the rubbery finishes from Illamasqua. I think they nailed that trend the best.
