Hello my dears! How are you doing today? I have for you the another manicure I've created for the Tri-polish challenge. As you know this month I'll have to stick to three colours, grey, blue and red, and they were already presented here.
While thinking what good could came from grey, blue and red, baring in mind I could also have free use of white, black and toppers, I remembered how I always found quite awesome the flag manicures, specially the Union jack, because I think it's kind of iconic in the world of fashion. I thought it would also be a nice opportunity to practice my striping tape skills, and decided to give it a go!

For this mani I used Only two out of three mandatory shades (which is allowed) Mavala Trinidad,  H&M super red and NYX Ink White, and of course many bits of striping tape. I started with 2 coats of the Mavala Trinidad, and then placed the tape bits in order to paint the two white crosses, and let me tell you, that was hard and time consuming. So when the white colour dried and it was time to paint the red crosses, well, I just dropped the striping tape and went on free hand, lol! It's not the sharpest execution you'll find, but it was not that bad considering it was my first try. I'm quite happy with the final result.

Well, let's call it a "Tribute to the UK" where I met the love of my life.
Let me know your thoughts, and if you tried this kind of mani or similar? Did you use striping tape?
Don't forget to check on the other lovely ladies and their creations for today!!
