Union Jack Nails

17 Apr

So following on from my post about patriotic products, I thought I’d try out a little Union Jack look myself using my new Models Own nail art pens (3 for 2 in Boots – score!) Although they’ve had a black nail art pen for a while – great for creating a leopard print look – they’ve now brought out yellow, pink, blue and white. Each one has a thin brush and a pen applicator – I used the brush for the look below as it’s easier to create straight lines.

To do this I started off painting the whole nail blue, before brushing on the white lines and then very carefully adding a thin pink line on top. Obviously they’re not 100% precise but I actually quite like the slapdash look – more creative! Above are the nails I did with my right hand – I’m not even going to show you the shoddiness of the left-handed attempt. Anyway the girls on reception at my gym loved them which, judging by the amount of time and effort they put into their nails, is definitely a compliment!
