Union Jack Nail Art

This was completed for PHD weekly nail art challenge, this week was Patriotic. So we had to do a mani using colours from our own flags.  Well, I thought I'd have to do the actual flag, the Union Jack is very iconic.
I almost decided to miss this one out as I have never done freehand nail art before.  But I went for it anyway....

 
Konad is my scapegoat, it gets me flashy nails with minimum effort, how on earth would I do the Union Jack freehand.  Scary for a first timer!

I used a base of Barry M Cobalt Blue, then used nail art striper brushes in white and red for the stripes.
This was wicked hard!  My hands are just not that steady so it was a real challenge to do this one, but a lot of fun too.


Hope you like the results.  I was really pleased with it, especially as it was my first freehand attempt.
