NOTD : Paralympic Nails

Waaaaaah, hey guys ! Oh my god I can't believe how late I'm posting this ! But I promise it's totally related to today's events, as you may have seen in the title of this post, I've done Paralympic nails ! Now there's not as much of a hype about about the Paralympics as there was for the actual Olympics, but nonetheless, I'm continuing the tradition after my Olympic Nails !

So I have to admit, I was actually going to post an old manicure for today's post, but then whilst watching the news and all the reports about the Paralympics opening ceremony, I saw the logo for the 2012 Paralympics and thought it'd look pretty good translated into nail art ! I decided to keep it simple, doing one design on each nail rather than actually copying out the logo, and then I did the Union Jack on my thumbs (as you can see) in the appropriate logo colours.

I only used four different polishes for this design (not too much compared to my original Olympic nails) which were OPI Dim Sum Plum, P2 Hug Me !, H&M U Must Have This and OPI My Back Pocket, plus my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in white for the white on the Union Jacks. The design was pretty easy to do, plus I love that framed nail ! My first attempt at one and I think it looks awesome !

So that's it for today ! I hope you liked my second installment in my Olympics series haha, even though it wasn't planned and was purely on a whim ! Are you going to be watching any of the events ? I think I may have to tune in to the wheelchair basketball !
