Fingerfood's Theme Buffet - Patriotic

Hello loves. As this post goes live I will be on my first day in Morocco, hopefully soaking up the sun by the pool or on the beach :). My boyfriend has agreed to be in charge of my social media while I'm away so it should be business as usual here, I just won't be able to reply to comments etc until I get back.

Since I have taken a break from the Tri Polish Challenge I decided I wanted to get involved in another weekly challenge. After having a little scoot around the internet I decided to join in on Fingerfood's Theme Buffet which is a challenge I see a lot of bloggers do. This challenge has a weekly theme set as opposed to just colours so hopefully it will be better for inspiring me :). This week's prompt is patriotic. 

Read on after the jump for more. 

I'm from the UK, so I went for the Union Jack design (not the most original I know). But I have never done Union Jack nails before, but decided to make it a bit prettier by making it purple.

I used a base of Models Own - Lilac Sheen. For the Union Jack nails I used Sinful Colors - Snow Me White and Color Club - Puccilicious.

On the rest of my nails I did a glitter gradient using Ciate - Helter Skelter.

I was pleased with these nails, they came out much prettier than I thought they would - probably because of the purple. Oh and the glitter gradient, I like anything that involves glitter gradients :).

Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks for looking.
