Feeling Patriotic

Hello lovelies,

I really like my nails today, when I did this I was feeling very patriotic. As many of you would know I am Jamaican and you already know what colours this is going to involve. I was inspired by Nail Polish War's 'For Your En-Zoya-Ment'. Great nail artist to follow.

Here are the tools I used:

Kleancolor: Black
Kiss Nail Art Paint: Gold Glitter
NYC: High Line Green
Milani: Yellow Whiz
Hard Candy: Matte-ly In Love top coat
Beauty Secrets: Base coat
MASH dotting tool

First of all I hate cleaning up black nail polish (Kleancolor: Black). The first picture is what it looks like before I clean up...or my attempt to clean up HA!

Then I add the yellow dots (Milani: Yellow Whiz) using both sides of the dotting tool just to get different sizes.

I then repeated the same thing except with the NYC : High Line Green.

Even though that completed the flag colours, it felt incomplete, so I decided to use some gold glitter to put some real gold in it (the colours are after all really black, green and gold). 

I decided to try my new Hard Candy: Matte-ly In Love matte top coat and I must say I do love how it came out. However I guess I didn't really wait long enough for the dots to dry and some of the dots dragged just a little bit but not noticeably that I had to rub it off. 

So I guess my one advice is to let it dry a little longer to ensure it is completely dry before applying the top coat.

I hope you enjoyed this entry... I did ;-)

Take care,
