Hawks fans show their pride with '12th manicures'
BELLEVUE, Wash. -- The shellac showdown is on. Nail biter games have sparked a flurry of "fanicures." Customized blue and green glitter nails covered in Seahawk decals are the hot new request at Wink Lash Extensions in Bellevue.
Twelfth manicures can be spotted all over Instagram and other social media sites. Youtube postings even show play-by-play examples of on how to do your own Seahawk manicure.
A week before the San Francisco 49ers came to CenturyLink Field, a receptionist and lash technician at Wink suggested their boss get in the game.
"People have such spirit for the Seahawks that they want to show that in any way they can," said salon owner Tover Edwards.
Wink is also offering Hawk extensions -- blue and green eyelash extensions sprinkled amid the standard black. Rashell Rensvold appreciates the subtlety of Hawk lashes.
"It's really fun. All girls want their lashes done so this is a great way to show your spirit and not have your face all painted up," she said.
A full set of Hawk lashes at Wink costs $150 and Hawk nails run $25. But a word of warning to Bronco fans. The owner and nail technicians say they cannot bring themselves to do Denver's colors.
