Hello lovelies & Happy Thursday. This week is certainly speeding by… & so is this month!
Can you believe that it’s only 17 days until Canada Day? Which means that it’s time to start thinking about what I’m going to do on my nails for the occasion! Thankfully Nail Polish Canada has once again teamed up with some bloggers to share the Canadian love & help make it easier for you to create some Canada Day nails.
When trying to come up with some Canada Day nails, I had this idea of doing negative space nails with a red maple leaf outline. Instead of using the stencil, I decided to apply the maple leaf vinyl to my nail & paint over top to create the maple leaf outline & then go back over top with red. What it created was this cool negative space maple leaf design.
The polishes I used for this manicure were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Green Tea + Bamboo Strength
- Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
- Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hard To Get
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Killer Heels
- Nail Polish Canada What’s Up Nails Canada Flag Nail Stencils
- Bundle Monster Small Detail Brush
These stencils are so easy to use! I was nervous about using them this way, just because I didn’t want my polish bleeding underneath & making me have to start all over again. The end result was almost exactly what I had pictured in my head–a little bit different Canada Day design besides your typical flag design! This would definitely be a fun look to wear for whatever plans you had for your Canada Day celebrations… hopefully for me it will involve Barbecue & fireworks!
So for all my Canadian friends who want to come up with some cute Canada Day designs, you’re in luck! You can get your very own Canada Fay Maple Leaf stencils for free! I have a code from Nail Polish Canada which will score 10 of my readers free vinyls!
