London 2012 Paralympics.


Sorry i’ve been away. Family things and stuff.

So, last time i wrote a post was a while ago. These nails were meant to be put up a long time ago. And i thought i best put them up now instead.

These are the nails or a copy of the nails i wore when i went to the paralympics. I don’t wear fake nails myself, but my ones got ruined through the day and i though i should re-do them so i could take a better photo.

The colours i used for this are:

‘Hot Gossip’ by Rimmel, ‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Aqua Crystals’ by LA Colours, ‘Red Glitter’ by Barry M, ‘Aztec’ by BeautyUK and ‘456’ Miss Sporty.

So this is a simple look, taking the union flag and zooming in on sections and one gold nail. I deliberately didn’t separate the diagonal lines from the cross in the centre to give it a flame sort of look i also curves some of the lines to add to this effect.

I started with a base coat of white, just to make sure the colours stood out, then taking the red i started making the lines of the flag. Then taking the blue to fill in the areas between. Once dry i added the layer of glitter on the top and finally a layer of white over the gaps again just to clean it up and make it look crisper.

For the ring ringer i took the two golds i have and layered them on top of each other to get that tone of gold.

And that’s all there is to it. Nice and simple. I hope you have fun recreating this look.
