#Crowned: KC Royals

Welcome to that moment where I geek out about the ROYALS winning the WORLD SERIES! Cheering on the KC Royals has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I've been to more games in Kauffman Stadium than I can count. The last time they won a World Series I was barely four months old. Cut to last year, I live in NYC, can't go to any of the games, and I end up crying alone in a bar after work as we lost in game 7. I spent a year being sad about that but then the Royals came out this year hotter and stronger than last year. I cannot wait to clench and go to the show again. THEN....dun dun duuuuuh...the METS win and are in the show. Literally....my worst nightmare y'all. If I'm serious about Royals Baseball, my husband LIVES and BREATHES Mets Baseball. So now, you have two uber competitive people who do not joke around when it comes to their teams, married and those teams facing off in a Championship Series. This only ends good for one of us. I'm happy to report, that I came out on the good end of this one. THANK GOD! My husband not so much, but we weathered the storm and hopefully won't ever see this kind of match up again. 

So long story short, I love Royals, my husband loves Mets, we got to go to NYC games, I saw my team win, BEST GAME EVER! This is what I wore on my nails, because of course I have to do something. 

I used a complete batting lineup from Cirque Colors for my baseball mani. I was only going to use the glitters, but as I was searching for them I kept running into "oh this would go well" moments and the next thing I knew I had seven bottles on my desk ready to rock. The blue creme on my thumb/middle finger is NYFW, white is done with Carpe Diem, gold glitter is Helios, blue glitter is Lapis, gold holo in the crown is Rococo, the white for my baseball is City Lights, and the red for the laces is Rita. Everything is handpainted on these, so they aren't perfect, but I'm pretty damn proud of them. 








Is anyone with me on #TeamRoyals? What's your favorite sport/team to watch?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
