British Flag Nail Design: What Do You Need?
Perhaps, you’ve already guessed that you’d have to paint the most part of the nail design with a thin brush. So, you will need the following tools:

- blue, red and white polishes;
- brush for nail art;
- finish coating.
Step 1: Prepare the nails for manicure: treat the cuticle, remove hangnails and correct the nail shape. You can choose that technique of the hand treatment you like. No matter what design you’ll choose: classic, European or Brazil. The most important thing is neat and well groomed nails.
Step 2: Apply the base coating: it’ll not only protect the nail plate from yellowing, but also make the nail plate smoother. Due to this, the future picture will be level and the color of the polish will be deeper.
Step 3: Take the blue polish and cover the nails with it in two layers. Start painting the nails from the center and proceed to the sides. This way you won’t paint the cuticle. When the polish will dry, proceed to the next step.
Step 4: It’s the most interesting part as now you must paint the British flag. To do this, you need special brushes for nail art or polishes with a thin brush. Paint vertical and horizontal lines with white polish and you’ll get four blue squares.
Step 5: Now, paint diagonal lines in each of the squares. You’ll get a picture resembling a snowflake. All white lines should be of the same width. The manicure will look effective only if it’ll be neat.
Step 6: Paint thin red lines on the white lines. The key to success is confident and clear movements of your hand when you do the painting. The British flag will look better and better. So, don’t be upset if you don’t get a perfect picture from the first time. You’ll have to practise.
