Pastel Union Jacks nail art manicure featuring Lime Crime nail polishes

Hello lovelies!

I have never ever ever ever watched olympics but this year it's so big I couldn't escape it. If you're living in United Kingdom like me you know what I'm talking about. There's tons of adverts on TV, posters and flags everywhere and my bf watches the Olympics the whole day!

I got caught up in the whole 'Go team GB' euphoria and today I've created pastel Union Jacks combo! I must tell you, it took me ages! I've used only shades from the new Lime Crime nail polish line which I will review later.

So what do you think? Good twist on classic white-red-blue colour combination?

  3. These colours are awsome! And your design as well!


    I HAVE to tell you, that I find it very sympathic, that your designs are not perfect.... Sometimes there are these MINI dents. Thank you so much for being just normal ^___^

    1. Hi CC, I'm sorry it didn't turn out well for the first time :( Firstly I painted my nails with the Lavendairy (purple polish). Then I took Milky ways (white one) and painted the union jack background - thick cross and diagonals. Then I took different colour for each nail and finished the flag by painting the cross and diagonals to the middle of the white space. Hope this helps x
