Twitter Can't Get Over Alex Morgan's Manicure During The Women's World Cup

If you haven't noticed, the U.S. women's national soccer team is very much killing it right now — and making news headlines in the process. Days after star midfielder and team co-captain Megan Rapinoe went viral for her statement about visiting (or, rather, not visiting) the White House, her teammate, Alex Morgan, has Twitter buzzing for another reason entirely: her nail polish.
At the England vs. U.S. semifinal game this afternoon, fans took notice of Morgan's bright-blue manicure. The tweets started rolling in almost immediately after Morgan scored her first goal of the game, which would ultimately advance the U.S. team to their third-consecutive Women's World Cup final.
One fan may have even identified the exact polish color — Essie's Butler Please — although that's yet to be confirmed.
Morgan's inspiration seems to be drawn specifically from her U.S. uniform, which features a blue Nike logo. The soccer star also rocked a blue warm-up jersey before the England vs. U.S. game, so she's clearly a fan of color coordination.
Morgan, a striker for the women's team, told PopSugar back in 2015 that she gets manicures every couple of days, and keeps polishes in her travel kit for emergency touch-ups in case she can't make time for a salon visit. Today isn't even the first time her manicure has been featured in photo ops: After the U.S. soccer team defeated Japan at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Morgan posed with her gold medal in mismatched sparkly red-and-blue nail polish.

Of course, it's hard to top an Olympic win, but based on Morgan and her team's performance today, it's safe to say she'll be planning an extra-special manicure for this World Cup victory.
