Fancy getting into the footy spirit but not sure how? Support our boys with these England flag nails, plus they couldn't be easier to recreate with our simple step-by-step!
If your family is anything like ours, then your house will have been hit by World Cup fever too! There are so many ways you can get involved in the fun, but if you don’t fancy painting your face like the kids or your other half (we admit, it’s not a look for everyone) then why not give these fun England flag nails a go?
And don’t worry if you’re a nail art novice, these footy-themed nails couldn’t be easier! Just follow our simple step-by-step instructions and you can’t go wrong.
What you’ll need:
White nail varnish Red nail varnish (aim for post box red!)
Fine nail brush Cotton bud dipped in nail varnish remover (for any little accidents!)
Give nails a layer of base coat. Paint a thin layer of white polish on to each nail, wait until dry and then paint another thin layer. The key is a couple of thin layers for a better opaque coverage and quicker drying time.
Choose a post box red to create the St George’s cross. We used a fine nail brush to create the stripes. Don’t worry if some goes on your cuticles or fingers, you can always use a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover to remove it. Use a top coat to complete the look.
For something a little different, you could also create the flag with a dot effect using a dotting tool. Don’t have a dotting tool? Grab a hair grip and you’ve got a makeshift version – just dip the round circular end of the grip into the red polish.
