Nails and Ales

I love beer and I love nail art. This is where I combine them for a pleasurable experience. Sometimes the beer inspires the nail art, sometimes the nail art inspires the beer.

Disclaimer: I am in no way an expert On either of these subjects. This is strictly for fun so take a deep breath and enjoy!
Browns Tailgating Mani
Taking a different route this week and forgoing the normal step-by-step and beer review that I usually do (unless you REALLY want me to review Bud Light…) and simply posting some nail and football porn. If you don’t know already, I am a huge Cleveland Browns fan and I try to make it back to Cleveland every year for the home opener.  Why  I would do this is anyone’s guess, as we have only won ONE home opener in the past THIRTEEN years. Being a Browns fan makes me a stronger person…or at least that’s what I keep telling myself. 
I celebrated my early season optimism by paying tribute to my team on my nails. Those little Browns helmets were the bane of my existence, but they didn’t turn out too bad. My only regret is that I should have painted them facing the other way so they wouldn’t be upside-down while drinking beer. It kind of worked out though because, if you look hard, the helmet on the field was upside-down from my seats anyway!

Below is a shot with the Muni Lot (Cleveland Browns tailgating headquarters) in the distance. I was going to use Great Lakes Brewing’s Cleveland Brown Ale for this mani  pairing, but it turns out they don’t sell it in bottles anymore…so I settled for this lovely can of Bud Light, which matched perfectly! (judge-free zone):

Here are some nail-free shots for ya, in case you would like the full tailgating experience:



(yes, that’s a meatloaf stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon.)
On that note….GO BROWNS!
