Day 28: Flag (Israeli Flag)

This particular design was a no-brainer. I decided to try it the day after Yom Kippur, and it made me feel a bit better about not being able to fast (metabolic condition, I pass out if I fast all day). Unfortunately, the lines on this design are not the straightest, but I didn’t have enough time to tape everything and I had to free-hand with my non-dominant hand!

Regardless, I think this came out pretty well. Lots of stripes and a few stars…in blue and white! I usually free-hand stripes with my normal nail art brush…but I just figured out the POINT of a striping brush! Just lay it across your nail and pull up! So, some of these lines are better than others. Always a learning curve.

I’m actually particularly proud of how the star on my thumb came out. And this is probably the only mani I’ve ever done that my mother would approve of (she only likes “pale pink normal colored nails”….and jewish things).

Simple, but fitting. What other flags are out there today?

  1. This came out wonderful! Best of the flags I have seen in this challenge most certainly! Amazed at how good you are with your non dominate hand! I cannot even do a wobbly stick figure with my opposite hand..maybe you are a bit ambidextrous!

    • I think i might be! 😀 It just took a lot of practice…I always paint both hands (at this point, I always paint them both differently just to keep my blog updated in time)

  2. So beautiful, and it’s great you can use nail art to celebrate since you can’t fast, that’s so cool!
