Day 28: Inspired by a Flag

Today's nails were a no brainer for me from the very start of the challenge. I always knew I would base them around the Union Jack and the flags of each part of Britain.

Did you know that even though the United Kingdom is a country itself it's split further into four countries - England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland? Don't ask me how it works, that's just the way it is! (more info here). I decided to leave out Northern Ireland because there were a few possibilities and I didn't want to get it wrong!

Just some personal trivia for you - I was born in England but now live in Wales and I've spent my whole life travelling between the two for work, school and leisure. In the town where I live, there's a small bridge over one of the rivers that runs between the two where you can stand with one foot in England and the other in Wales!

I really can't wait to see what Cristina and Riehave come up with today.

  4. OMG ! They look so good :)
    I'm personally such a big fan of the United Kingdom and I'm in love with England, the tradtions, the language and just everything that has to do with Great Britian.
    So for me it's also sure that I'm going to do United Kingdom nails !

    Love, Laureen <3

  5. This is awesome! You're keen attention to detail never stops surprising me! I remember in my Comparative Politics class back in high school, my teacher had to keep drilling it into our heads that the United Kingdom is comprised of 4 countries. Your mani is definitely bringing back high school memories! (in a good way, I loved that class!) :)
