Manicure inspired by Real Madrid C. F.

I'm a big fan of football and my all time favorite club is Real Madrid. I started watching football since 1998, I still remember the world cup I watched with my dad and I loved it. :D As a kid, I even played it with my friends, but I'm sad I never tried to train it. :/
Old team of Real Madrid with Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Zizu, Raul, Figo, Beckham, etc... made me fell in love with this club and it's still my #1. <3
Yesterday we watched another El Clasico (Barcelona vs. Real Madrid) and I tweeted if RM wins, I'm doing a manicure inspired by RM. :D And they won! :e So here's what I came up with.... 
Sun
I'm not good with free hand nail art so I decided to keep it simple. :D I used white as a base, because I love their white uniforms with gold details. I added a RM's logo on my ring finger with nail art brush and 3 gold stripes from their uniform as Adidas logo on my thumb with tape.

Daylight
OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener
China Glaze - Snow / 2 coats
Ring finger: China Glaze - 2030 (gold), Essence - Cool and the Gang (blue), Essence - Back to the 50's (red) + nail art brush
Thumb: China Glaze - 2030 + tape
Beauty Secrets Top Coat Fast Finish Polish Dryer

I wanted to add numbers of players but since I love the whole team, I decided to keep other nails just white. :D

Pictures aren't even close to good, because we had such a grainy (grey + rain) day and my camera didn't let me pick the gold without any shine. :( I like this mani better in person as on this pictures, kinda looks like a fail. :D 

Any Madridistas here? Do you watch football? What's your fave team? My 2nd fave team is Chelsea. :e I check almost all their matches (if I don't have time to watch it, I always check the results).What do you think? Does this mani look like a fail? :$

Have a lovely start of the week and thanks for reading!

Xoxo,
Ivana :k

  7. Super nice! :) I am a big fan of football me too (my fav team is Juventus) and I started watching matches when I was 5 years old. Sometimes my dad took me at the stadium, too. In 1990 I knew by heart all the names of all players of the World Cup. :D

    1. Oh Juventus, good old times with Del Piero. :) Lots of great clubs come from Italy for sure, I wish slovenian teams were interesting to watch but they aren't. xD So, one of my biggest wishes is definitely watching El Clasico at Santiago Bernabéu. <3

      Yes, me too! Collecting stickers for albums was my favorite thing back then. :D

    2. Oh wow, Christina, I'm also Juventus fan! :) I adore Juve since 2000 (I was 11 years then :) ).

      Ivana, this manicure is so cool! ;)

    3. @Ivana: Del Piero will be forever in my heart, IMO he's a great man and not only a great football player. I can't believe that Andrea Agnelli (who is the president of Juventus) doesn't want him in the team for the next year. He's an idiot. -.-

      @Irina: wooow! Can't believe we're both supporters of Juventus and Ferrari too. xD

      I have no idea if 2030 is still easy to get, but Barry M - Gold Foil looks similar! Maybe you could try that one. :)
