step 1

First of all it is important to make sure your nails are clean and ready to be painted before we start, so we need to do a little bit of preparation. If you have nail polish on already, you will need to take it off with some nail polish remover. After this is done, I usually wash my hands just to ensure my nails are completely clean.

Then it’s time to tidy your nails up a little and to shape them to how you want, using with your file. Also, if you want make your nails appear longer – you can push back your cuticles. If you place your hand in some warm water for a few minutes, it will help soften your skin making it easier for you to do this.

Once you are ready, you should apply a base coat to your nail as this will protect your nails from being stained but also will make applying your nail polish much smoother. We used the Vitamin Base Coat (1) to do this.

step 2

Once your base coat is dry (this shouldn’t take too long), we can start moving on to the more exciting parts – deciding what colour you want your nails to be! For this England flag nail look, we decided to paint our nails with the nail polish in the colour Double Decker Red (2) to begin with. We applied 2 coats of the nail polish as this makes sure the nails are covered well.

We recommend you apply a thin coat rather than one thick one as the thicker the coat, the longer it will take to dry.

step 3

Once the gorgeous red nail polish is dry, it’s time to start moving on to create the England flag! The first thing we need to do is plan where we want the red stripes to be on the ring finger nail. To do this, we used the straight line stencils (4) and placed them gently over the nail.

It is important you make sure your nail polish is dry before you place it over your nail as this could take your nail polish off!

If you don’t have any striping tape or stencils, it’s okay, you can use tape instead! You can see how we used the tape technique in our tutorial for the Stripe and Flower Nail Look.

step 4

Once you are happy with the placement of the stencils, it’s time to paint on the white sections for the England flag! To do this, we used the nail polish in the colour White Out (3).

When you are painting on the nail polish on, don’t worry if you get some on the stencil – it protects that part of your nail.

step 5

Now it’s time to add the final touches to this England flag nail art! Firstly, you want to gently take the stencils off. Once you have done that, you can tidy up any of the lines using a small pointed drawing brush (5) with either the red (2) or white (3) nail polish. 

When you are happy – apply a top coat to finish the look off!

And that’s how we created this England flag nail look! A perfect look for your nails when cheering the England team on!
