notd | patriotic

Just in time for the end of the Olympics I decided to whip out my nail polishes and get patriotic!
To create the Union Flag I basically followed this YouTube video, expect I used a few of the nail art tools that I showed in this post to make achieving the straight lines a bit easier, although as you can see from the close-up photo it still isn't as perfect as I would've liked!
The navy nail polish took two coats for it to become completely opaque.
L-R Barry M Navy, OPI Alpine Snow, Eyeko Saucy Polish


  1. Great nails, I like the look of these it's kind of got a retro feel to it :-)

  2. nice!

  3. Close-up it looks a little gloopy but the mani is still really cool.. Reminds me of the Spice Girls lol :)

  4. Lovely work, you should try using a empty ball pen refill for nail art(my lil' secret)Just checked out your blog and I love it! Thought I’d leave a comment letting you know how much I do!
    Would you like to follow each other? Already following you. <3

  5. Hi,
    I failed my union jack. I don't have a steady hand...
    By the by, can you tell me where can I get that Eyeko nail art stripper???

    1. unfortunately i think it's been discontinued :(, but it's not a striper, it's just a normal polish - i used some nail art tools x
