Twinsie Tuesday: Favorite Sports Team Manicure

Hockey is the only sport I really follow, so that made this week's TT theme a no-brainer. Hockeytown is one of Detroit's many nicknames, after all, so we are big into hockey here and I've been watching Red Wings games with my dad for as long as I can remember. My boyfriend and I don't have cable, so I can't watch games as often as I would like anymore, but I make sure to catch them whenever I'm home visiting my family!

Now, the Wings' logo is a winged wheel, but there's no way in hell I can draw that, so I decided to go the simpler route of the classic symbol of Detroit--and by extension, its sports teams--the Old English D.

I did an Old English D manicure a while back our hometown-inspired manis, but the Wings-style D is a little different. Detroit's baseball team, the Tigers, use a traditional Old English D, but when the Wings wear Old English D's (such as on their throwback jerseys for the Winter Classic games), it usually looks like this:

 Of course, since this is a Red Wings manicure, I had to use some red polish. So I started with a base of OPI Coca-Cola Red (gorgeous red, by the way) and then used a white Sally Hansen nail striper for the D.


So yeah, not the most elaborate mani ever, but hopefully it gets the point across. Be sure to take a look at my Twinsies' sports manis this week too! I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that I'll be the only one who chooses a hockey team this week, but you never know! ;)
