Today is SONA day! (State of the Nation Address). Our new president President Benigno (NoyNoy) Aquino III will talk to the nation about his plans for our country. Since I am on a "nationalistic" mode, I tried using the colors of our dearest flag for my nail art tutorial. My apologies in advance as I don't own a dark blue shade so I used a purple instead, but you get th drift right?
Here's my Colors of the Philippine Flag Inspired Nails
How to achieve such nail art design?
Do not forget to apply your favorite base coat prior to nail polish application. Using Elianto's Matte White polish, apply 2 coats and let dry.
To create a nice "glow", apply Caronia's polish in Crystal.
If you have dark blue polish, use that shade. If not, you can use any shade you want. I am using Prettynails' Purple polish and create random lines.
Using White L.A. Colors Art Deco, create lines just below the purple lines created above.
Using L.A. Colors Art Deco in Red, continue the lines...
Create a tiny check with L.A. Colors Art Deco in Black.
The Philippine Flag has a distinctive yellow shade (sun and 3 stars). I am using L.A. Colors Art Deco in Gold to create a nice "sparkle" between colors.
Top your hard work with your favorite top coat. I am using The Face Shop Top Coat.
Enjoy your nails!
