31 Day Challenge! Day 28: Inspired by a Flag

Hello all! Today's objective was to create a nail design inspired by a flag. I knew right away what I wanted to do, the Union Jack. I have decided to use the flag of the United Kingdom as my inspiration for today's challenge for a couple of reasons. For one, many of the bloggers doing this challenge are from the UK and 2012 has been such a big year for the United Kingdom. The UK celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubliee and they hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics. I want to dedicate these nails to all the amazing bloggers from Britain and to your wonderful country! I hope I will get to see it some day!


The UK really has an awesome flag. The untried polish for today's challenge is OPI A Sparkle Yule Love. I got this polish at Ulta last Christmas and completely forgot about it. I really like how it looks on the Union Jack.


I have always wanted to go to the UK and I really hope that I get to one of these days. It looks like such an amazing place and I have had nothing but nice interactions with the people who live there!



 What I used:

  • Base color: Zoya Song
  • White and red acrylic paint
  • Glitter polish: OPI A Sparkle Yule Love
  • Fine tipped nail art brush
I used a blue polish for a base and then once it was dry, I painted on white stripes and then red over the white. I then added some glitter polish over the red paint for some sparkle!



I just love how these nails came out! I really don't want to take them off, I love them too much! But alas I must for tomorrow's challenge. I have lots of fun in store for tomorrow!

See you then!
PeaceErin
