Nails of the Day - Canada Day

Happy Canada Day!

I originally wasn't planning to do a Canada Day mani but when I thought about all of the awesome red shades that I haven't been able to use in a mani yet (such as Milani Red Sparkle and OPI Red Shatter), I figured that Canada Day was the perfect opportunity to finally use them.

I was also worried that I would never be able to make the maple leaf perfect and symmetrical so David (my bf) had the brilliant idea of only doing half of the maple leaf and I LOVE how it turned out. Thanks, David. :)



Products:
CND Stickey Base Coat
China Glaze - Salsa (base for thumb and middle, maple leaf)
OPI - Alpine Snow (base for index and ring, stripes on thumb, dots on middle)
OPI - Red Shatter (over Alpine Snow on index)
Milani - Red Sparkle (pinky)
Seche Vite Top Coat

  16. HAPPY CANADA DAY!!! Unfortunately I'm on vacation in the States right now and I celebrate alone :(
    Because I'm away I've done my left hand with Canadian flags and my right with American. I just did a literal flag, but I love your design! Incorporating different patterns/textures looks beautiful!
