I’ve painted a set of Union Jack nails in the past when i first started messing around with nail art so i thought it time to do some stars and stripes! This particular design comes on Konad’s m45 plate which was in the French Nail Art* set that Funtica sent me and i used the red & blue special polish from Stamping Set C*.
I started with a layer of Barry M’s Silver Foil and then using a cut-up baby sponge (so much cheaper than make-up sponges by the way) i patted a rough white tip to sit under the flag design. For this i just used my Natural Collection tip whitener and wasn’t overly neat with it as i wanted some of the white to spread out from under the flag and give a grungy look. From there it was just a case of painting half the flag with red and half with blue before scraping and carefully stamping onto the tips. Finished with a top coat of Barry M Clear and they’re done!
