Nail your Gameday Style

Twenty years ago, you couldn't really paint your nails to match your team unless your team colors had red or pink in them.  Today, there is no reason that your toes and fingers can't match your team on gameday, whether you're sporting orange and blue or black and gold and everywhere in between.  

It is fun to get to know new people at games throughout the season.  Sasha, who has a fun blog, Sasha Says, is a new friend from this past season that I met at a friend of a friend's tailgate (all of them super friendly opposing team fans, mind you).  Sasha blogs about a lot of topics but one of her most frequent is nail polish.  Throughout the fall, Sasha has reviewed many different nail colors by OPI that she posted to her manicure blog called 
Manicure Mommas.  

One of Sasha's most recent posts is on glittery, sparkly, oh-so-holiday-ee, polishes, which happen to cover some of our favorite team colors.

And not only does Sasha have the inside scoop on special holiday nail polish releases, but she introduces her readers to OPI's Spring 2012 Holland Collection with polishes, with super team spirit again,  such as this:

Vampsterdam (OPI)
A Roll in the Hague (OPI)



Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI? (OPI)

I Don't Give a Rotterdam! (OPI)
And the Crackle nail polishes have taken the gameday world by storm.  Since most teams have two colors and crackle finish polishes use two colors, Gameday Style has seen lots of crackles at games this year.  Here are some that Sasha tried.  You can read the entire post here....http://www.manicuremommas.com/2011/10/fun-with-crackle.html:

Go give www.sashasays.com a look and a follow. The nail polishes that Sasha features and recommends are great for gameday (of any sport!) and for a fun Christmas gift to give to a friend that has team spirit.  Along with the nail polish in formatives, Sasha also has fun everyday stories about being a "married, working mom of two, who tends to overshop and can't say no to new food and beauty products".  And from the looks of her tailgate, Sasha also happens to have a lot of Gameday Style!

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!


You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.



Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.   www.snackadium.com.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:



The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
