Nails of the Week- Jubilee Inspired Union Jack Nails

My mother is staying with us this weekend and has been plastering every inch of our house with British Flags in honour of the Queen's diamond Jubilee. I even caught her pinning a few on to little E's stroller!!!! I decided to go for a slightly more subtle approach with Union Jack themed nails. 


This was super easy to do: I painted my nails with OPI's Alpine Snow, a matt white polish. I then applied the Union Jack heart decals which i bought from eBay, Here.

I have never used water decals before but I was surprised as to how easy they were to apply. I simply cut roughly around my selected heart, soaked it in water for 30 seconds to remove the backing and then pressed it on to my nail. Once I had done this for each nail, I finished the manicure off with a top coat to secure the decals in place


Whilst on the subject of Union Jacks, how cute is this Romper Suit that I picked up in JojoMamanBebe ? Whilst strictly speaking this outfit has probably been designed with the Olympics in mind, I think a certain little someone may be sporting it later this weekend......

  1. very patriotic! I've gone a bit overboard with the bunting too, we're having a major street party, hopefully no soggy sandwiches or cakes! Love the romper, I keep seeing baby clothes (mine is 22m)that are so lovely and cute, shame they grow so fast!! Enjoy your weekend x

    1. Thanks lovely. I hope that you had a fantastic day and that the weather held out for your street party!
      I know what you mean about the baby clothes, so many shops seem to stop at 9 months and proceed to toddler clothes which aren't half as cute :(
