Squee! Getting so close to the end!
Today’s challenge is ‘inspired by a flag’. Now I dunno about other polish fiends, but since the Olympics resulted in an outright explosion of flag-and-other-patriotic manis, I became a little bit sick of them. I wanted to do something a little different, and as MaSucree said, “A lot more unique!” than a lot of the other flag manis out there.
I decided to spell out ‘flag’ in nautical signal flags!
I really love the ‘L’ and am keen to do checkered nails again! The ‘F’ was a complete nightmare though. Signal flags are square, so trying to do the diamond really didn’t translate so well >_<
Polishes used were:
- China Glaze Hey Sailor (red)
- China Glaze First Mate (blue)
- China Glaze Liquid Leather (black)
- Santee Beach Yellow
- Jordana White / Jordana Pop Art Contemporary White
I still think this was a fun one to do, and I’m happy that I came up with something a little different 😀 I got the inspiration from another Studio Ghibli film, Kokuriko-zaka Kara, or From Up on Poppy Hill. The main character raises signal flags every morning in memory of her father.
