The Super Bowl is this weekend, and loyal fans are counting down the days ‘til they can line their face with war paint and proudly sport their favorite player’s jersey at all the football parties.

These nail designs will help female football fanatics rep their team and look fabulous at their Super Bowl soiree!

1. Touchdown Two-Tone Mani:  Two-tone manicures are a major trend right now, and decorating your nails with this style is a great way to celebrate and support your team! To do this design, paint your nails purple for the Ravens or red for the 49ers and let dry. Then place tape one millimeter from the tip of your nail and add a stripe of your team’s second color (white or metallic gold for Ravens, metallic gold for 49ers) over nail tip and edge of the tape. Take the tape off and let dry, then add a coat of clear polish.
