SPORTS...'n' stuff - The return of the Wiki Series

So I decided to not do an April fools thing this year.  If you forgot, last year I pretended to have an AMAZING giveaway, only to reveal it was fake. I can safely say people reacted strongly to it.  If I'm going to do April fools, I'm not going to play around.

Today I have something that is not blue! I noticed the past few posts have been very blue centric.  Today I bringing back the Wiki Series! If you don't know what that is it's something I did last year.  Essentially if you are short on nail ideas you go to Wikipedia, and click 'Random Article'. You get 3 tries at most, and out of those 3 random articles you choose the one that inspires you the most.  From there you do a manicure inspired by the article. You can choose more than 3 articles if you get something you really don't understand, or something that's not nail inappropriate(no one wants to see your D-Day nails).

When I searched the random articles this time round I got the 1969–70 European Cup Winners' Cup.  Even though I don't follow sports I was really excited about this.  Mainly because this is one of the few sports I know a bit about even though I don't watch. When I was reading the article I saw that the winners were Manchester City F.C., I immediately knew I needed to do Man City nails, because I knew exactly what I waned to do.  I really wanted to do Manchester City kit nails. I ended up doing the ones they wore for the 1967-70 European Cup, which as you can see were black and red and the goalkeeper in green. The whole manicure was done using polish(Revlon Red Carpet, Sinful Colors Hey, you!, Orly Liquid Vinyl), and striping tape.

Despite the fact that I don't care all that much about sports I actually really liked this and was sad to take it off.  Even though it was inspired by sports, it still worked well as a general manicure.
