Well it's day two of the Digital Dozen's Countries and Cultures week! Today I have a country inspired mani for you.  Hopefully you've guessed what it is by now, even though these didn't come out exactly how I planned them.  I used Zoya Raven for the black part and I don't love it now that it's been photographed! I wanted it to add some depth to the little hats.  I originally thought of using flocking but I was covering a co workers position and flocked nails wasn't really work friendly!! In any event HOPEFULLY you can tell that these are little British Royal Guards. It also occurred to me after I did them that the little piece that goes around the chin should probably have been gold. In either even I quite liked their cute little faces!

I hope you enjoyed them as well! Maybe next time I'll go all out with some flocking! :)

Don't forget to check out the other ladies art below!! And don't forget you could choose our September theme!! Just visit and tell us what you want to see us do!!
