Sure, you could throw on a jersey and call it Super Bowl Sunday. But if you really want to prove your devotion to your team, take a cue from one of these creative nail art ideas. We’ve rounded up fun ideas for both Patriots and Rams fans — plus a few neutral designs if you haven’t picked alliances yet.
New England Patriots
First, you want to coordinate your polish with the team colors. These will do the trick: Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail Polish in Soothing Sapphire ($4, amazon.com), Essie Nail Color in Forever Yummy ($8, amazon.com), China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Platinum Silver ($7, amazon.com), Essie Nail Color in Marshmallow ($9, dermstore.com).
With one hand covered in team symbols and colors and the other literally spelling out “Let’s go Patriots,” you’ll definitely nail the #1 fan thing.
Delicate team-color stripes make up the French tips of this manicure, while the accent nails are painted up to look like footballs. Try China Glaze Mahogany Magic ($7, walmart.com) for a perfect brown shade.
It’s a wrap! No, really, it’s literally a wrap. The team name is so perfectly “painted” on these nails because they’re stick-ons.
These super-sparkly nails make us think Patriots colors would look great in a figure skating outfit.
In addition to different designs on each nail (including Tom Brady’s number, of course), the Patriots logo is cleverly split up on the thumbs.
Los Angeles Rams
Of course, there are matching nail polishes for Rams fans out there too. We recommend: OPI Nail Polish in Blue My Mind ($11, amazon.com) and Zoya Nail Polish in Goldie ($10, amazon.com).
Give a shout-out to Todd Gurley, or any of your favorite players, with an intricately-designed jersey on your nail bed.
A Rams logo and sparkles give this spirited manicure the extra point for style.
While the Rams leave it all out on the field, you can leave the field on your nails.
Show your hometown pride with a gold football accent nail to celebrate the big game.
And just in case you can’t decide who to root for, there’s always these neutral options.
Shimmery polish helps the NFL go glam:
Go glittery on all but two of your nails, saving those for a football symbols.
Not only do these nails feature black and white referee stripes, they also have textured “astroturf.” Brilliant.
