Eurovision

I know this is late to pst but they were done for the Eurovision song contest and now i’m just getting around to posting about them.

So the colours i used or this are:

‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Pattie’ by Andrea Fulerton, ‘Cyan blue’ by Barry M, ‘Hot Gossip’ by Rimmel, ‘Bright Orange’ by Max actor, ‘Spring Green’ by Barry M, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, and Go go’ by 17

So first all all starting with the thumb i took a white for the background and started with a very thin brush and a black polish and started on the logo for the competition. The spacing was probably the hardest part of this trying to make sure i could fit it all onto the nail.

Each flag was quite easy, i had to just make sure if there was a white gap te i had space to put it in.

United Kingdom: Start with a red background then go in with the white to do the cross in the middle, then do the diagonal lines making sure their separate from the cross and finally fill in the blue triangles.

French flag: Start with the white, to make the other colours seem brighter on top, then take your red and down one side on the nail and take the blue and go down the other side.

Norway: I started with red on this one, and then took the white to take the cross, on top of this went the blue making sure i  left the gap of white around the edge.

Ireland: I started with the white for the background and then each in turn with the orange and green.

The rest of the flags are all stripes When doing stripes if you want to be really exact you could use tape to make sure the lines are straight but i did it freehand using a small brush after to make sure the lines are really straight.

I hope you have fun recreating this look.
