Today’s nails are inspired by my home country, South Africa’s flag. We have a really great flag with bright and beautiful colours 🙂
I created the flag itself on my thumb (shown upside down here, but that’s just because it’s easier to photograph this way, and I wanted to have the triangle part at the tip of my nail!) and just used the colours on all my other fingers.
I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in White On as a base so the colours would show up brightly. Then I did the coloured stripes on my nails with Essence Colour & Go We Rock the Green, Charlie Revlon Lady in Red, and Sinful Colors Fly Away. For the flag I also used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Black Out. I then used white striping tape for the white stripes between the colours, although it showed up somewhat translucent. For the yellow stripes, I also used white striping tape and then went over it with Essence Colour & Go Wanna Be Your Sunshine.
