2012 is the year for Great Britain. The Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. What could be better than adorning yourself with the famous London sights to shout out to the world that you love your country?
This design will show you a clever trick on how to antique your nails, making it look vintage. Perfect for the British flag as the background!
Paint the whole nail with a water based acrylic paint, alternatively you could use polish. I am using blue from Be creatives paint range.
Using white acrylic paint, apply a white band across the middle of all four nails.
Then apply the diagonal stripes in white, this time half the width of the white strip. Only apply to the top half of the nails.
Now you will need to reapply the gel polish top coat. Cure and wipe away the inhibition layer.
This design would be great to wear when heading off down the streets of London to show off your love for this country, or even if you just want something pretty and patriotic your nails.
