31DC: Day 28 - Inspired by a flag (Hungarian flag nail art)

Hey there!!
Can't even believe I'm almost done with this challenge!! My fingers will be happy when I give em a rest for a day :P
So for the flag nails, I also knew right away what I wanted to do. I was very close with all my grandparents growing up, and out of the 4 of them, only one wasn't born in America. That always fascinated me and I wish I could know more about that lineage! My dad's father Ben (my son is named after him) was born in Budapest, so I wanted to attempt the Hungarian flag. Very easy...except for the crest which I did freehand with the help of a small art brush. Take a look!

 Hungarian flag!
I used HK Girl top coat on the thumb and saw it started smearing the red down the nail. GRR. So I switched to Seche Vite and had immediate shrinkage from of the green Ciate on the tips. GRR. (I gave it another swipe of green on the tips).

Overall, this isn't my favorite nail look...but I'm proud of it anyway :D Thanks for reading guys! I'll see you tomorrow xo
And the other flag nails:


  1. Fab job - don't be so critical of your creation. doing a detailed crest is hard. This makes me think of a long ago love who had a very strong Hungarian family heritage - NJ home territory and I got to see first hand - a Hungarian Reform church even. Not too much a fan of the cabbage rolls (or should say they are not a fan of my GI tract! I am 100% Swedish - we have some funky food too - it's not all meatballs and pancakes. "Our flag' is not too hard to create on a nail inspiration.

  2. This is beautiful! Greeting from Hungary! :))
