I’m excited to show you today’s mani. First, you should know I’m a closet soccer fan. The small private school where I began my college career didn’t have (American) football…only “soccer”…and so my fandom began – helped along by six months spent in Europe during my Sophomore year. The World Cup is the most widely viewed sporting event in the world. Hosted in Brazil, the winningest team in World Cup history, the 2014 tournament kicks off in less than two weeks (June 12th)!  And at the same time, Pure Ice will launch in Walmart Stores in Mexico and parts of Central America!

Pure Ice World Cup 2014 Brazil Nail Art #colorkick

I’ve talked about Pure Ice many times over the last two years. The polish line has a great range of shades and finishes in a nice formula – an excellent value for less than $2USD. Until now, Pure Ice has only been available in US and Canada (which means about 30% of my readers haven’t had access to it). Fortunately that will change this June for readers in Mexico and Central America!

Pure Ice World Cup 2014 Brazil Nail Art #colorkick

To announce the launch and celebrate The World Cup, Pure Ice asked me to create a World Cup nail art look. The official match ball and other tournament graphics were my inspiration. [image credits: FIFA, Adidas, Wikipedia]

worldcupI used six Pure Ice polishes: Superstar! (white), Show Stopper (yellow), Free Spirit (green), Siren (red), French Kiss (blue) and Black Out (black). Unlike doing art with acrylic paint, nail polish is a little less exacting. I just kept going over the designs until they looked the way I wanted and had a nice depth of color. It looks more watercolor-ish than my last Lacquer Legion freehanded design, but I love it still.

    *bows down* your parot logo is phenomenal! I love when nails look truly ‘arty’. Being from the UK I will be watching but will pretty much cheer for any team as England’s bound to go out early. Good excuse for a gathering and a beer though

    What a fun manicure to support and celebrate.

    Awesome manicure. I am a closet football (soccer) fan too. And World Cup is one of my fave events to watch besides Europeans :D

    Ohhh, the Brazilian flag is so cute!

    As a Brazilian, I am also a Football lover. Always have been. It’s the Country’s passion, and it will (hopefully!) live up to the greatness of such event.

    I always read your blog and absolutely adore your manicures, but I usually stay quiet. Not this time, though. Somehow, I feel represented (we, Brazilian women, looove some nail polishes). Quite cool indeed. :-)
