O Canada

1 Jul

Happy Canada Day! Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend.

This is from last year. I just painted a red maple leaf on a clear background. It didn’t stand out as much as this year, having white behind it makes the maple leaf pop.

How to:

  1. base coat
  2. paint the sides with red (2 coats)
  3. paint the middle with white (2 coats)
  4. using a thin brush, paint a maple leaf at the center of each nail
  5. top coat

***Very important to wait a couple hours for the leaves to dry or else it will smudge! I was impatient with my right hand because the blue from my hair was staining the white, so I put the top coat on after only 15mins, and the red from the maple leaves bled into the white (does not look as nice). Patience is a virtue.

Polishes used: Base Coat (OPI), Red Carpet (Xtreme), Blanco (Essie), Top Coat (OPI)
