but I haven't told you that I'm one hellava great London-Lover, too!
|Just sharin' some UK Love!|
One afternoon after class, I passed by the local convenience store inside the campus and found myself buying a bloody red nail polish (Caronia Brick Red). When I got home, I was so thrilled to try my new nail polish out so I immediately went for my nail kit. The moment I opened the box, my Orly Matte nail polish in Navy Blue and my Caronia Frosted Nail Polish in White Rose instantly caught my attention. Then there came my Nail EUREKA! moment. Right then I knew I badly wanted to make my first nail art, and it's gonna be inspired by the UK flag.

I first tried replicating the entire flag on my nails, but sadly my nails were too small for it. 'twas my first time creating a nail art so I couldn't deal with small details yet. Because of this, I decided to just paint my nails with HALF of the flag. Here's how I did it (forgive the messy coloring, it's my first time):
I first painted my nails with the Navy Blue Lacquer to create the base.
Then I made a mirrored diagonal stripe with the Caronia White Rose polish.
I made a narrower mirrored stripe above the white stripes I did. See the photo below:
I made half a cross over the diagonal stripes (yeah, that's just practically a horizontal line overlapping a vertical one):
Just repeat the steps for all fingernails and...VOILA!
a UK-flag-inspired nail art!
Hope you enjoyed this Nail Post as much as I did.
Let me know when you get to try your own, too, okay?
