Today our manis are inspired by our ethnicity. I decided a plain white mani wouldn't be any fun, so I dug a little deeper. My ancestors on my dad's side came from Croatia. I pulled my inspiration from the Croatian flag.

Croatia (6) WLcopyI used NYX Girls White for my base. Sinful Colors Aquamarine is the blue and the red is Color Club Reddy or Not. For the checkers on my middle and index fingers, I was planning to use tape to get those super crisp lines, but ran in to some trouble. I had my index finger all taped up, applied the red polish and when I went to pull the tape off, it kept breaking off in little pieces. This has happened to me before, but only with China Glaze Liquid Leather, so I thought it was the polish that caused it. I guess it really is the tape. I bagged the tape and freehanded the checks on. I'm pleased with them, but think they would have looked so much better if the tape had cooperated.
