Digit-al Dozen Does Countries and Cultures; Day 2

For Day 2 of Digit-al Dozen Countries and Culture week, I chose India; here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (no pix as shown before).  I then sponged on the flag of India using CND Electric Orange and CND Green Scene.

(Sorry for sharing but I think these pre-clean up pix are cool!)  Here's the pix after cleanup.  I actually really like the look of this and thought if I messed up too badly on the stamping, I would just show this as the finished mani for the India flag look!

While I could have easily stamped on top of this, I thought it might be difficult to stamp the images in exactly the middle of the flag which is what I was trying to do.  So I decided to topcoat using KBShimmer Clearly on top in case I didn't to remove a mis-stamping, which would save the base polishes so wouldn't have to redo (and good think I did because I had to stamp the pinky twice!).

Stamped with (what I hope are) images representative of India.  Used black FUN special polish and images from MoYou Tourist Collection-20 (thumb), MoYou Explorer Collection-21 (index and middle), JR-6 (ring) and BFF 15 (pinky).

Thanks for looking!


  1. Lovely very pretty our Independence Day is next month I might do something inspired by using your mani...:)

  2. Wow, great mani. You amaze me with the new and fresh designs you keep coming up with. This is beautiful. I am not Indian but to me this definitely seems to represent what I know about India.

  3. Lovely manicure! Your flag design is pretty cool on its own, but I like it even better with the stamping on top!

  4. Yay another India! That base is beautiful!

  5. Love that gradient! And those stamps are so awesome! Great job!

  6. Putting those images over the rough sponging was pure genius!

  7. I need these stamps! I LOVE that elephant on your thumb! The background is fab too.

  8. stunning gradient and I am so envious of your stamping placement abilities!

  9. I adore this! I love that you combined a flag design with other nail art elements - like a two-for-one manicure :0)
