Patriotic Olympics Nails

Hello Beautiful! I've caught the Olympics fever and being a patriotic person I thought it would be appropriate to do some matching nails to show my support for my local team.

So first I painted my nails all white with China Glaze White on White nail polish with the exception of the pinky finger that was painted red with China Glaze Go Crazy Red.


The red nail serves are a base for the national flag of Trinidad and Tobago! Our flag is pretty easy to replicate; red base, black thick center strip starting from the top left hand corner with two white smaller strips on both sides of the black. 
The thumb finger shows the Olympic rings with the year. This was done using acrylic paint and a toothpick. 


My favourite nail!
OK so the remaining nails are just right for the three medals that everyone is striving for. For that perfect circle, you want to apply your polish onto clear tape; the non sticky side and wait for them to dry properly. Using a circle hole punch carefully punch through the polish and tape. Depending on your polish the both circles of polish and tape separate on their own. I used for the gold; Makeup Cherimoya Pebble beach Crystal sand nail lacquer in Emerald (Step 1). For the silver I used Milani PC girl and for the bronze I used Orly Chocolate Martini. For the purple tags for the medals, I mixed blue and red acrylic paints.



Are you doing any Olympics nail art? Oh I would love to see! Are you the patriotic type or will you jump ship? And for all you trini diehards or even if you're not, feel free to support our Olympics team by tweeting the hashtag #I4TANDT; 100,000 mentions by September 24th = $200,000 for our Olympians and Paralympians!

Happy Olympics!
XOXO

But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
