Inspired by a Flag for the #31DC2017Weekly

Hi all!!

I am officially caught up with the #31DC2017Weekly now!  Tomorrow's post will be right on track.  Last year, for the inspired by a flag prompt, I did a flag for Iceland right before I went on vacation there.  I am going to do the same thing this year.  Next week, I am heading to Europe for a vacation.  I am starting off in Copenhagen for a conference then then meeting my German polish sister, Lotte, in Germany!  Yay!!!  I can't wait to meet my little international polish pen pal that has become a true friend. :)  So I am inspired by the German flag today.  My nail are not a direct representation of the actual German flag but I was inspired by the colors of the flag: black, red and yellow.

For this mani, I used three shades of creme polishes to create this distressed, grungy look.  The black is Digital Nails " I see France".  The yellow is Sinful Shine "Bananappeal".  And the red is Zoya "Tamsen".  Once my base color was dry, I wiped off as much of the polish off of the brush as possible and then dry brushed little swipes along the nail.  It is all topped off with a glossy top coat.

I always like how these dry brush, distressed manicures turn out.  You can use any color combo and you don't need any tools.  Just the brush that comes in the bottle.  I hope you have been checking out Lotte's looks for the challenge this year.  She has done then along with me the entire time (and she was always on time!).  I can't wait to hang out with this chick!!  Be sure to check out all of the other people participating in the challenge by going to the tag #31DC2017Weekly tag on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter

Thanks for stopping by!
