World Cup Nails 2014.challenge -Argentina

Hiya friends

How are we all? good I hope.

I was kindly asked recently by the lovely Emily at nailsxo to participate in her 'World Cup Nails 2014.' competition.

I am not a fan of Football really but you don't have to be to join in this challenge as it is just for fun and you may even win a prize!  

Emily randomly chosen each member to a team Emily says that you can make some nails based on the country you are paired up with, it can be anything you like it doesn’t have to be their flag, it can be something to do with their culture for example.

So I was paired up with Argentina!
For my nail art I did choose the easy option and do there flag.

Here is the items I used to create my football team's nail art!

  • INM out the door top coat.
  • Rimmel polish in Too cool to tango.
  • Saffron polish (no name sorry but is like a mustard yellow)
  • Technic party brights polish in AYA NAPA.
  • NYC polish in Pinstripe White.
  • Accurate nail art pen in White.
  • Dotting tool.
  • Football stickers.
I started with a base coat of White on the thumb gave it 2 coats.
Then for the other nails I did 2 coats of the Aya Napa polish (Green).
I then took the White nail art pen and hand painted a football pitch on the middle finger.
Using the stickers I stuck some Footballs on the other nails.
The thumb I painted 2 stripes across the nail using the Rimmel polish and then using the dotting tool I dotted a sun shape in the centre of the nail on the White.
Gave all the nails a top coat and all done!

I really enjoyed doing this manicure and love the footballs.
Hope you liked them to.
