In celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday, we're flying the British flag everywhere we go with these fancy Union Jack nails. Show your patriotic side this summer with our Union Jack nail art tutorial taken from Try It! Nail Art, and impress your friends with your nail art skills fit for a Queen!
Use a red nail polish to paint your nails, with a blue accent nail on your middle finger. Let them dry for a few minutes.
Using your nail striping brush and white nail polish, paint a thick white line vertically down the centre of your accent nail.
Paint a thick white horizontal line across the centre of your nail, creating a cross shape. You can see the Union Jack design starting to form!
Use your nail striping brush and white polish to paint an X-shape over the cross. These lines should be slightly thinner, and make the UInion Jack design more recognisable.
Use your striping brush and red polish to paint a red cross layered over the white one. Leave a white border on either side of the line
Finish with thin red lines layered over the white X-shape. Leave a white border on either side and between the red X-shape and the cross. Ta-dah! Your Union Jack nails are complete.
