Polish Days: Polish Olympics Time!

Polish Days 'Polish Olympics' Swatch

Polish Olympics – My national pride is somewhat divided!

Wow, a third Polish Days, and it’s getting bigger and better each time. Given that I’m in London and we’re enjoying the 2012 Olympics here, a Polish Olympics seemed fitting!

I consider myself to be of dual nationality. To explain my background, I was born in the UK, spent two years as a baby in Wisconsin in the US (I was too young to remember so don’t feel any ties) then 14 years in the UK followed by ten years in Australia and now I’m back in my country of birth. But I have more than that in my blood. I’m almost half German, and I have a hint of French and Polish in the mix too. So that’s five nationalities and five nails – perfect!

This took a mammoth amount of tape, and even more patience so I hope the results are worth it! Check out all of the other lovelies posts after the images – if so many lovely bloggers didn’t take part Polish Days would not be this amazing. Also, stay tuned for the announcements of the gold, silver and bronze medal winners in a few days time!

Polish Olympics – National Pride

Thumb: Union Jack
Index: French
Middle: German
Ring: Australian
Little: Polish

Granted this is a slightly more abstract version of the flags, I wanted the designs to work with each other a little better, and I do love me a diagonal tape mani!

    These are great :) I love the inspiration, and your lines are so clean! I’m still a total novice at taping, I always make such a mess!

    • Polly

      my two tips: take as long as you possibly can between coats, and use fast try topcoats in between to cheat ;)
