My nails have been taking a trip around the world. Within a week I’ve done posts on American flag nails, German flag nails and now French flag nails! But today is Bastille Day and in keeping with the tradition I had to do a Bastille Day manicure!
This year I did a simple manicure with French flag and Eiffel Tower accent nails.
I started off with a base of Sally Hansen Sterling Silver instead of just a basic white. It added a little flash to the mani. And really, who doesn’t like a little flash!?
On the pointer finger nail I added an Eiffel Tower with Cover Girl Black Diamond and a nail art brush. Then I used a thinner, longer nail brush to draw the blocks of color on my ring finger nail to create a French flag. As always for any French themed manicure the blue I used was L’Oreal Jet Set to Paris. The red I used was Essie Fishnet Stockings.
This was a fun manicure to do. Plus, I’m (re)reading Edward Rutherfurd Paris: The Novel and I definitely have Paris on the brain!
Happy Bastille Day everyone! And make sure to check out the swatches under the jump.
