It’s been done, I know. But I am a total anglophile, so I had to do it at least once and I thought this was a good opportunity since it fit into the challenge and coincided with Queen Elizabeth’s jubilee celebrations. I tried to add a little twist on it by making it look vintage-y, and I kind of like it. These are definitely not my favorite (probably because they frustrated me), but I do really like them!
I started with a base of Spoiled Correction Tape. Then I cut strips of Scotch tape and put them where I wanted the white to be. After that, I painted on a dark blue franken and peeled the tape off. I really need to invest in some striping tape because the Scotch tape melted in some spots and was a total pain to get off. After that experience, I decided not to use tape for the red parts – which are Sinful Colors Go Go Girl – and just freehand them. Finally, I sponged Essie Hot Coco and Brooch the Subject over the whole thing.
Honestly, these were much more difficult than I had anticipated, and even though I really enjoyed wearing them, I probably won’t do these again anytime soon.
