Vancouver Canucks Nail Art For My Anniversary

Today is my 4 year wedding anniversary. I can't believe how fast time has flown by since that beautiful, sunny day where I said "I do" to my best friend.

James is my rock, he keeps me centered and focused... He also drives me crazy, but what man doesn't? I love him, and he has been so supportive of me and my crazy, crafting ventures; this blog included.

He has suggested a lot of nail art ideas to me; most of which I have ignored (for good reason... I'm not going to try to paint his truck on my nails. Not gonna happen lol). But when he suggested I create something in honor of his favorite sports team, I couldn't say no. So I decided it was a good idea to surprise him for our anniversary.

We live in Arizona, but my husband grew up in the small town of Sicamous, British Columbia. A picturesque place in the middle of the Canadian Rockies that you would think only existed on postcards. It's that pretty. So, naturally his favorite team is the Vancouver Canucks. I like hockey, I'm so glad the only sport my husband makes me watch is hockey. If he liked baseball, we probably wouldn't be married lol. So. Freaking. Boring.

I knew their current logo was out of my skill set, and I also knew I couldn't pull of his favorite logo (the flying skate) so I decided to go with the vintage rink with a stick logo on my thumb...

And then take the other old jersey design that is supposed to be yellow, red and black and turn it to the new colors for my pinky...

And this is what I came up with!!

Vancouver, Canucks, Nail Art, Hockey, NHL

He freaked out.

The blue is a no-name that my good friend Sunny at 365 Days of Color sent me. It is actually the base for Free-Spirited with no copper shimmer. I loved the color so much that she sent it to me in creme form. She loves me like that lol!! The white base on my thumb and pinky is OPI Alpine Snow. Then I used my white Stripe Rite and my new Avon Nail Art Enamel in Styled Green for the accents.

The jersey numbers are for 3 of our favorite players. It was so hard to only pick 3...

This is a pretty basic design that can be changed for any sports team you like. Just find a logo or two you know you can draw!

I will have another review for you tomorrow. But, for now I am going to enjoy a day off with my hubby.
