The world cup is finally here, and to celebrate England's first match tonight, I have gone all patriotic, and will be showing my support, by sporting these England flag inspired nails. These nails are super quick, and easy to do, so I thought I would share a little how-to post for anyone out there who wants to join in the fun, and get into the World Cup spirit. 

What I Used
Revlon Nail Enamel - Red - £6.49 - Here
Rimmel 60 Seconds Rita Ora Nail Polish - White Hot Love - £3.69 - Here
Models Own - Scarlet Sparkle - £5.00 - Here
Avon Nail Decoration Tool - £3.00 - Here

To start with you want to make sure your nails are filed, cuticles are pushed back, and any old nail paint is removed. 

1) Start by applying your chosen base coat to all nails.

2) Now you want to decide which nails you want your flags to be on, paint those nails in white, as this will be the base colour for the flag, and then the rest of the nails in red. 
3) You now want to take your dotting tool, or nail art brush, either work fine, if you don't have any of these, then you could simply use a cocktail or orange stick. To get a neat line and avoid any blobbing, dip your nail brush or tool into your chosen red nail polish, making sure you only take a small amount. Starting with the vertical line first, slowly start to draw on the lines.
4) Lastly once all nails have dried properly, you can now go over and seal everything by applying a top coat, don't forget to seal the edges, as this will help prevent any chipping. 

There you have it some super quick and easy England Flag nails. 
Will you be watching and celebrating this years World Cup ?
