I put together a little manicure for Canada Day and a quick how-to for getting the perfect maple leaf.
The maple leaf was created using the decal technique. But to make it as symmetrical as I could I used a guide... I printed off a canada flag small enough to fit on my finger, then taped the piece of paper to the back of a piece of plastic from a zip-lock bag. I taped the plastic down to my desk to make sure it wouldn't slide around.
Then I painted over the maple leaf using Red My Lips again. I made the polish fairly thick so that it peeled off easily.
Once it dried I peeled off the decal and I stuck it on using a clear top coat.
Happy Canada Day to all of you lovely Canadians out there!! And even if you're not celebrating the holiday, I wish all of you a lovely day :)
