Decking yourself out in your team colors is nothing new when it comes to sports. We've all done a little face painting and donned our favorite jerseys, but with Super Bowl 50 almost here, it's time to take the looks up a notch. For Cam Newton fans, that means wearing black and blue, temporary Panthers tattoos, and creating the perfect Carolina Panthers-themed manicure for the big game.
There's just something really thrilling about the way a town or group pulls together to represent a team. It sounds laughable, but when you're rooting for the same quarterback, the same coach, and the same city, you create a bond with your fellow fans. I can't tell you how many times I've been in the stands of a game, and high-fived or hugged total strangers as our favorite team pulled off some massive win. I don't even think you have to be much of a sports fan to get the appeal, or the goosebumps when an entire fan base is going nuts for one team. Team spirit is very real, very alive, and is so much fun.
So for you Carolina Panthers fans, let your spirit show itself in your nails. These 11 Carolina Panthers-themed manicures range from the extremely detailed to the more subtle designs, but all of them are perfect to don on Super Bowl Sunday and dab your little heart out. Keep pounding.
