NOTD: Inspired by the US of A




Today we're having an American- style BBQ at work, thanks to our visiting student/friend from the US (if the weather cooperates, that is!). Obviously, this means a blue, red and white mani!
I had visions of something more intricate, but ultimately I was too tired so I went with this simple and understated design inspired by the American flag.

Polishes used:
White = Revlon Nail Enamel in 22 White on White
Red = Catrice Nail Lacquer in 550 Marilyn & Me
Blue = Essence Colour & Go in 129 The Boy Next Door

I didn't have the patience to do striping, so I alternated the red and white on my nails. For my thumbs, I painted the blue background and followed with white polka dots for the 'stars' (which I did using a bobby pin).

What are your thoughts on flag-inspired nail art?

    1. Me either! You've prob seen how all my polishes are bright or dark so this was a new one for me. I'd actually painted all my nails white as a base and waited a day to do the art because I liked the white nails :)
