A Very 'British' Manicure with Andrea Fulerton Nail Colours!

With the Queen's Diamond Jubilee fast approaching, why not celebrate with a patriotic British manicure? Not only will you be celebrating the Diamond Jubilee in your own unique way, but your nails will also look fab and be the centre of attention- especcially the trendy British flag on the ring-finger!

When coming up with an idea for a Diamond Jubilee manicure, I definitely intended to include the Union Jack but I was unsure of what other colours I could paint the other nails with. I then decided that a mix and match of colours was best, and I decided to use the colours of the Union Jack- Blue, white, and red. 

I used Andrea Fulerton Nail Colours for this manicure, primarily because I loved the shades of metallic silver, red, and blue which are perfect for a Diamond Jubilee themed manicure! I painted my thumb-nail with Helena, a metallic dark blue shade; my grooming finger with Assunta- a Peel Off metallic red polish with pink tones, my middle finger with a beautiful shade called Annie- a metallic silver, reminding me of sparkles and diamonds- perfect for this manicure, and finally I painted my little finger with Nigella- simple cream white shade.

I used these colours, except for 'Annie' to paint the Union Jack on my ring-finger too.

What do you think? Do you have anything planned to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee?
