St Georges Day Nail Art

Hey everyone! Can you believe it? I'm posting 2 days in a row! I guess it makes up for my lack of posting last week. So today in England is St Georges Day, which for those of you who dont know is the national day for England (although unfortunately it's not a holiday so we don't get a day off!). I've teamed up with Avon again to bring you some St George's Day nails and I really like how they came out, this is the first time I've managed anything near a realistic looking rose!


To create the flags I painted 2 coats of Avon - Real Red, and once that was dry I used striping tape to mark out a cross and then I used Avon - White over the top. Then I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite to seal in the design

For the roses I used Avon - White for the base, then I used Avon - Noir Emerald for the stem of the rose, and Avon - Real Red for the flower itself, mixed with Avon - White and Avon - Black, and again topped off with a coat of Seche Vite


What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

  2. Wow, Avon White must be super opaque! I'm really impressed it was able to cover the red so effectively.
