Last week I was invited to spend the day hanging out with COVERGIRL and Duane Reade as they celebrated The Big Game with color coordinated manicures and it was such a fun event! The P&G sponsored event took place two days before The Big Game and it was right smack dab in the middle of New York City where all sorts of celebrations were going on so you know the energy was absolutely awesome. I’m really excited that COVERGIRL teamed up with the NFL to bring these team themed manicures as well as coordinated NFL team polish combinations because I feel like it adds a little bit of femininity to an otherwise masculine event.
At the event COVERGIRL had professional nail artists on hand to provide manicures and they were booked solid! Tons of people were setting up appointments to get their favorite Big Game team colors on their nails (I chose Seattle which obviously worked out pretty well since they won!) and it was really fun to see what kind of designs the artists were coming up with. I had my nails done by Phylicia and since I’m adventurous and believe in letting an artist do what they do best I let her do whatever design she wanted. She chose a geometric striped manicure and to say that I’m obsessed with it would be a total understatement. I wore this manicure for 5 days and on day 5 it still looked amazing with minimal chips and tons of shine. I didn’t want to take it off!
I had never used COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss prior to this event so I was really interested to have it used during my fanicure. At first I was a little confused about the lack of base coat and top coat (I’m a creature of habit, what can I say) but you know what – 5 days later and my nails are still nearly perfect! COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss has base coat and top coat built in so it’s really easy to use and I am super impressed with its wearability and smooth, glossy finish. The dry time was also really great as well! Because I’m not the world’s largest football buff I don’t have team jerseys or anything like that so the fact that I can head to Duane Reade and snag coordinating nail polish to represent my favorite professional football team is right up my alley! While at the #DRBigGame fanicure event I picked up nail polish colors that coordinate with Tampa Bay since, ya know, I have to represent my home state of Florida!
COVERGIRL has 32 coordinated professional football team bundles available at covergirl.com/NFL so be sure to check them out and see how you can get in the football spirit with an exciting fanicure! Even though football season is officially over that doesn’t mean that people stop being fans, right? If online shopping isn’t your thing you can also pick up individual bottles of COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss at mass retailers nationwide where they retail for around $5.49.
I think it’s pretty obvious that I absolutely LOVED this event! I love that I was able to learn more about the COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss and how COVERGIRL is adding a bit of femininity to a stereotypically male dominated event.
Duane Reade had tons of exciting Big Game events around New York City so be sure to check out the Duane Reade Big Game social hub and re-live all the week’s #DRBigGame happenings there. Celebrating with Duane Reade and #CollectiveBias was so fun! And don’t forget that Duane Reade is the perfect stop for all of your game day needs… even nail polish! Who doesn’t love that?
