Queens Diamond Jubilee Nails

Just a quickie post today to show you what I've been wearing since Saturday. Originally I wasn't gonna do anything special on my nails, but after being a zombie all day in front of the racing I felt like doing my nails.
Base Coat: Nail RX - Stuck On You/
Base Colours: Barry M - Gold Foil
Rimmel - Tip Whitener
Barry M - Bright Red
George - Boom
I also used a red nail art pen, and blue and white acrylic paints
The glitter's just loose fine glitter
Top coat: China Glaze - No Chip Top Coat

I did try and take some pics of my right hand, but they all came out blurry, and I didn't wait long enough for the first top coat to dry before bed, and the flag on my right ring finger kind of melted and partly slipped under the free edge in my sleep lol. I kinda wish I'd done red and blue with gold glitter fade. For the glitter I thickly sponged on top coat and sprinkled glitter on.

I'm currently trying to nurse some sort of illness (Sunday as I write this) I think It's gonna turn out to be a horrible head cold, I'm feeling better than earlier though thanks to a two hour nap haha. I hope everyone has had a good weekend.

  8. Lovely and effective! The Union Jack has been done really well and I love the glitter. I really like the simplicity of the design as it means that it can also be used to celebrate the Olympics. I have also done some Jubilee inspired nail art and would love it if you would also take a look at my nail blog
