Red, White and Blue

I was recently asked to paint some holiday nails for the wonderful Jessica Sharman. As she was headed to the depths of mid-USA we decided that stars and stripes were a must. Jess also wanted to show some patriotism of her own so we balanced it out with a Union Jack on the other hand.

Red, white and blue can look quite stark against each other. To tone this down to a nail-suitable style we swapped the royal blue for a navy (Model's Own - Betty Blue) and used a darker Raspberry colour for the red (Barry M).

I wouldn't wear these nails on a day to day basis, but they are great for a fun holiday manicure!
