NFL Football Inspired Nail Art

Most Americans are in love with football and I don’t mean soccer. I mean real NFL tackling football. And it would surprise most to know that men aren’t the only ones who are into football or football season. I said it would surprise most because it seems like most advertisements and even sports shows are targeted towards men based on their style, language and who they have on the shows or commercials. However, we girls know that we love sports just as much as any big football fan man! With the Super Bowl coming up we need to upgrade our manicures. So why not show off your football loving pride with some beautiful football nail art?
