Creative musings in bright colors

I have always disliked “flag” day in the 31 day challenge…I try to come up with something inspiring and I usually fail. This time, I think I did NOT fail. At least, if you are a nerd 😀


I have on my nails the flags of Middle Earth from Lord of the Rings! Unfortunately, a lot of the real flags do not get described in the books (or portrayed in the movie) but I made do with what the internet told me. Ideally, I wanted at least one Elven flag, but those really don’t seem to exist!


The flags:
-Pinky: The feather quill of the Shire
-Ring: The white hand of Saruman
-Middle: The white tree, crown, and 7 stars of Gondor
-Pinter: The white horse rampant of Rohan
-Thumb: The golden arrow of Dale (little known kingdom of men, killed by the dragon Smaug)


This was a lot of fun to make and actually remarkably fast! The detail work only took about 30 minutes.

~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Green: Sinful Colors – Exotic Green
~ Blue: Maybelline – Midnight Swim
~ Gold: Essie – Penny Talk


Enjoy! I should also probably warn you readers…this was the last post that I had done ahead of time. I am now flying by the seat of my pants as to what I get done and edited in time! So let’s hope I can keep up!

  1. Your designs on your nails are fabulous! Love them – I’ve been a die-hard Ring lover for over 40 years. It would be so awesome to have these at one of the conventions! Your choice of polishes is so on-point! Thank you for the beautiful photos.

  2. Of course I would love this.

    They’re beyond cool, and my fav is Saruman’s sign ❤

    Not many elf flags, hm….
    How about that banner Arwen is holding at the endish of Return of the King? Was there something on it? Don't remember, but it was beautiful.

  3. Oh, a tree. It’s a beautiful banner with a tree : )
