NOTD : Language Nails

Hello again everyone ! I've got a special NOTD design for you all today ! I'll start off with the big news first though : I majorly broke a nail on my right hand this morning when I was swimming, so I'm going to cut all my nails down really quite short because I can't cope with irregularly sized nails ! Unfortunately it broke almost half way down the nail and it's super painful (especially when I had to take the nail polish off the nail afterwards, it stung so much) so I've had to cut it down a substantial amount so it was easier to repair, oh well !

So anyway, as for the nails, as some of you may know, I'm studying Germany and Russian at university ! Today the university organised some talks about careers in translating and interpreting (and of course I was incredibly interested) so I decided to do special nails for the occasion ! On my four fingers on both hands I did a flag to represent each language I can speak and in the order I learnt them : English, French, German and Russian ! Then on my two thumbs I did the UN flag on my left hand, and the EU flag on my right.

For the design, I used Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, China Glaze Manhunt, American Apparel T-Shirt, OPI Big Apple Red, American Apparel Hassid, P2 Hug Me, and my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in white for the detailing on the UN flag. I really enjoy painting flags on my nails, but I always seem to struggle to get the proportions right !

Right well I'm off now in a bit of a rush, hopefully going to see Skyfall in a bit with a friend so I'm super excited ! Better head off now, will see you all tomorrow !

Have a great day !
