You have to look fabulous for the game and a normal french manicure is a little too classy, but this isn't :)

Step 1: What You Need and Clean Up Your Nails
- Brown Nail Polish
- Green Nail Polish
- White Nail Polish
- Top Coat (Optional)
Step 2: Base Coat (Grass)
Paint your nails green.
Step 3: Tips (Footballs)
For your tips you are going to curve it like a football instead of go straight across like a normal french manicure. You can either use a toothpick to make the outline of the football and then fill it in with the regular nail polish brush or just use the brush. After doing one hand I got the hang of it by just using the brush.
Do this for all your nails and give it plenty of time to dry.
Step 4: Details
Take out a toothpick and try to only get a little on it. Now, draw on your laces. It will try to bleed and if the brown isn't dry yet you are going to get a white color with brown in it. I could fit three laces on my thumb, but only two on my other figures. Next draw on those white lines on the ends of the football. Carefully do this for every nail.
After it is completely dried, you can add on a top coat. If it isn't dry enough you will get a white smear from the laces.
Step 5: Done
Are you ready for some football?!?
