Racing Flags

When I made my (rather undramatic) return to blogging and showed you these nails, I told you that these weren't actually the first nails I did, but the first ones were just too bad to show you after not posting in such a long time.  Well, the time has come.

I was struggling for inspiration, so I dug through a load of old stickers and transfers that I bought way back when before I even started this blog.  I selected some tip stickers that sort of remind me of racing flags, and decided to pair them with Viva La Nails Creme Brulee.

Here you go...are you ready for it..?


I think I actually would have done a better job if I'd freehanded them, which is saying something...  Unfortunately, the stickers weren't quite wide enough for my nails, and something funny happened around the edges of the stickers when I added top coat.  I also, somehow, managed to get a load of yellow polish in my hair.  So yeah...not my best.

I hope you all have a lovely start to the weekend!  I'm back in Wales this weekend, taking my sister to see One Direction...lucky me...

  1. I think they look really awesome! I love the race flags with the yellow. Sometimes I think things are easier freehand, but there are something I just can't do freehand! You sound super excited to see One Direction :P I hope you will have a good time with your sister though :) xx

  2. The sticker pare perfectly together with the gorgeous yellow polish. I am sorry that the end effect was not exactly as you imagined it. Have a great time at the concert!

    1. Thank you :) I might give it a go freehanded - I do like the black and white with the yellow.
