Hi Friends, you must be knowing by now that I am Indian :). And we celebrate our Independence Day on 15th August. I thought why not celebrate it with pride on my nails. I am gonna wear this tomorrow with pride and honor.

Navy Blue : For the eternal wheel of law

White : Truth, Peace and Purity

Green: Prosperity

So I have tried to include all colors in my nail art. Also there is a special reason I have included "Gold". At one point in time we were called "Sone Ki Chidiya" meaning "Golden Bird". So I did not want that to be missed out. Yes, I am having that patriotic wave run down me as I explain you all this.

Anyways, back to the nail art.

Items Needed:

  • White Nail paint

  • Green, Blue, Orange and Golden Acrylic Paint

  • Dotting tool or a Toothpick

  • Fan Brush

Method :

  • Paint all your nails white and let them dry.

  • Using a fan brush pick up the acrylic paints an start from left wall of your nails. Pull the brush till you get the desired look. Repeat if needed.

  • Do the above process for all three nails with respective colors.

  • Draw a rough outline with golden on each nail.

  • Using a dotting tool pick up some golden acrylic color to draw the pattern on my forefinger. Fill in dots with the colors a shown.

  • Finish up with a top coat.

Wasn't that easy?? Using a fan brush gives very random asymmetrical which makes it fun and easy. I think I will do a pictorial next time I use a fan brush.

Goodnight for now, before my heads falls down on my laptop. He he...I bet you don't want that :P So buy and Happy Independence Day!!!!
