Freo Dockers Nails!

Well... I never ever thought I'd do 'sports nails' but here we are.

The West Aussie AFL (Australian Football League) team - the Fremantle Dockers is one game away from making the grand finals and it's a home game!
My parents are Freo Docker members and my Dad has abandoned my Mum for a private box leaving me with a ticket =D

I've been getting into the footy a lot this year. All the boys were always talking about their dream teams non stop at the start of the season, so me and a friend joked about making a 'dreamy team' where we would pick the most attractive players only...... and we ended up actually doing it.

I watched every game I could this year and I think next year I'll make a proper dream team :) I was getting so annoyed when I couldn't pick my favorite players because they weren't 'dreamy' enough!

So anyway, between going to the game and actually enjoying football in general, I guess that's how I ended up doing team nails :)

*Update* I did more Freo nails for the grand final here 

The team colours are purple and white (previously there was also green and red- but they seem to have rethought this colour clash!). I handpainted the lines instead of using striping tape. Partially out of laziness, and partially because I'm not very good at using striping take yet!
The logo is an anchor, which I luckily had a stamp for from the bundle monster 2010 set.

The polishes I used were:
White nail: OPI alpine snow
Purple: OPI Vant to bite my neck?
White stripes: LA colours striping polish

And here is a picture of the team (in 2012). As you can see I kinda screwed up and only did two chevron lines instead of three- but oh well- close enough!!

Thanks for reading, and Go Freo!!

    1. Thanks very much! There was a lot of back and fourth with the white and purple until I was happy with it.

  2. I just googled this to get some inspiration for doing my nails ready for tomorrow and this was the first thing to come up:) your nails look great, thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Oh that's so awesome that you also wanted to do Freo nails! I'm trying to think of a different Freo nail design now for the grand final!! I might incorporate the red and green. Or maybe just do the reverse colours (away game jersey). I'm going into Fremantle for the grand final- they are closing the streets and putting up huge 6 metre screens ! Eeee!


Thank you for your comments! I read every single one from both new and old posts, and will do my best to respond to any questions you may have in a timely fashion :)
