31 Day Challenge - Day 28: Inspired by a Flag

Hi guys!

Today's prompt is inspired by a flag and I was feeling completely uninspired about this theme. After whining on twitter about my lack of inspiration, I received an awesome suggestion to just create my own flag for my own made-up country! I loved this idea because it gave me complete creative control over my design!

So then I got to wondering what a flag for my own country would look like. Well, it would be bold and eye-catching, it would have bright colours, and possibly a touch of animal print. Luckily, I didn't stray too far from the challenge prompt because I found a website that sells novelty/accessory flags and they had the perfect flag for me to draw inspiration from! So, I'm still sticking to the prompt, it's just a little outside the box. ;)

Actually, if you remove the dots and the animal print, there's definite real flag potential with the tricolour vertical stripes!

To create this design, I started with a base of white on all of my nails. I then used a striping brush to block off the pink, green and black sections. The black is Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme, the pink is OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips and the green is Color Club Twiggie. I added the dots using a dual-ended dotting tool and the zebra stripes were done using a striper brush.

I really like how thus turned out! I feel a little bad about straying from the challenge prompt, but I just wasn't feeling the flag inspiration!

Only three more days left! Tomorrow calls for a mani inspired by the supernatural, and I'm sadly not really very inspired about that theme either. Check back to see what I come up with!
