February comes with one of the most anticipated events of the year: the Super Bowl. Whether you are a football fanatic or just enjoy watching certain players (Travis Kelce or Jalen Hurts are both fan faves), it’s fun to get festive. So, in order to get in the Super Bowl spirit, treat yourself to getting Super Bowl-themed nails.

This year’s Super Bowl matchup is the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles, playing on Feb. 12 in Arizona. This event is enjoyable for anyone to watch (including those who don’t follow football) because of its extra entertainment like the iconic Super Bowl ads and the highly-anticipated halftime show, where Rihanna will grace the stage.

When it comes to nail ideas for the Super Bowl, I suggest being more subtle with nail designs because once the night is over, you want nails that are relevant for the weeks to come that’ll still match your aesthetic.

French Tips

can never go wrong with a red french tip ♥️ #redfrenchtip #frenchtip #classicnails

French tip nails are always in style, and they’re an easy choice to customize. The beauty of this nail style is that you can utilize team colors for a color base (always the most challenging choice). Instead of having a white french tip, you could get red for the Chiefs or a midnight green for the Eagles. The best part about this nail design is that it’s subtle, but nevertheless a nod to your fave team (or, let’s be real, the team you randomly decided to cheer for).

Multicolor Nails

Yey or Nay? ❤️💜🧡 Colors: Berry Nude, Dolly Mix, Papaya and Down to Dilly 💅🏻

If you’re rooting for the Eagles, multicolored nails could be an option for you. For this look, every nail would have alternating colors. The Eagles team colors are the best to use for this idea because they’re not too outlandish, with midnight green, black, white, and gray. One nail could have a midnight green color, the next would be black, and then white until the pattern is complete. There’s a lot of freedom to this theme because you can use as many colors as you’d like.

Brownie-Glazed Nails

I know we’re tired of my constant color switch up but… the chocolate glazed donut nails are really hitting for me for fall 🤤🤎🍩🍩🍩🍩🍩 @zolaganzorigt

Of course, it wouldn’t be a complete list without a Hailey Bieber-inspired nail look. She is the queen of anything glazed. A few versions of Bieber’s glazed nails went viral within the past few months, and they’re here to stay. One of her highly-sought-after variations was her brown or chocolate-glazed nails. Brown is a subtle and obvious color for the sport of football, and it’s perfect if you’re neutral when it comes to choosing a team and just want to be included in the fun. Plus, brown glazed nails look stunning with any outfit!

Velvet Nails

Keeping with the trends, velvet nails are a statement piece that’ll complement any look. The beauty with this trend is that any color looks gorgeous with velvet nails, so no matter the team you choose to represent, your nails will still look fire. Velvet nails would look stunning in either the midnight green shade or a bold red.
