31 day nail polish challenge: day 28: Inspired by a flag

Yeah, so I wasn’t just inspired by ONE flag for this challenge day, but 5! I chose to do the 5 flags for the 5 nordic countries: Iceland, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark (from thumb to pinky).

I cannot BELIEVE how straight these lines are! That, I did not expect! Yes, they could be straighter, but I expected them to WAY more wobbly than they are! I did this on my dominant hand as well and they’re actually also pretty straight – what just happened there??

I used Essie’s Blanc and L’Oréal’s Banana Pop (for the Swedish flag) as my base colors and then I used generic stripers in red and blue.

    Love this 😊 I wanted to try something similar to celebrate Eurovision on Saturday but I don’t have enough colours…. Any excuse to buy more nail polish! Xx

      I can always think of excuses to buy more polish! 😀 Well, depending on which flag(s) you want to do, you actually might not need that many different colors – if you think about it, most flags have the same color scheme, it’s actually a little weird lol.

        For whites I can recommend Essie’s Blanc or OPI’s Alpine Snow. I only have two yellows, actually, so I can only really recommend Banana Pop by L’Oréal, but I’m sure there are better ones out there 😉

    Very Eurovision 😉

    De nordiske lande har altså også bare nogle herligt nemme flag. Forestil dig at lave Aserbajdsjan eller noget lignende haha! Dit finske flag er virkelig flot. En manicure jeg godt kunne finde på at lave til daglig også! (:

      Flagene generelt eller Finlands? For Finlands flag er bare lidt lige som en “klassisk” manicure 🙂 Kunne slet ikke forstille mig at lave andet en streger.. De der flag med måner eller ørne og whatever 😀
