Get your Jack on with The Royal Collection by Leighton Denny

Fancy showing a bit of patriotism in time for the Royal Wedding?

This is a limited edition set that screams out for a talented so and so to work a bit of nail flair and show off some designs!

Sadly, I’m about as artistic as a colourblind, 3-toed warthog… but if you did fancy giving the old Union Jack nail art a go, here are some tips from Leighton Denny on how to master the perfect British flag.

Step 1 – Paint two coats of Cascade over each nail for the perfect neutral base

Step 2 – Using long, steady strokes, paint in two red crosses with Caught Red Handed

Step 3 – Complete the Union Jack look by painting In The Navy into the remaining sections

Top Tip: For neat lines, load the brush with a very small amount of polish.  This will help to give precision when adding in detail.

The Royal Collection by Leighton Denny is priced from £30 and available for a limited time at Bath and Unwind and Feel Unique

Are you a bit handy with a nail art brush?

  1. I’m not sure about painting flags on my nails, but the polishes look good!

    That weird… I’d think it would be easier to first paint the entire nail blue, then a broad double white cross and then a smaller double red cross. But maybe the white polish lacks the coverage for this? Anyway, if I wanted neat flags as complicated as the British one on my nails I’d just use stickers…

    • Yeah, it does sound like it would be easier to start with blue, but the white looks pretty sheer. It sounds doable, I don’t think this flag is very complicated compared to US and people definitely do that for July 4. But probably doesn’t look as cool.

    This is something I’d adore to try being as patriotic as I am – though I’m very unsteady handed so won’t be trying anytime soon lol xx

    I love nail art stuff. <3

    I could do this on my left hand, but my right would come out as coloured blobs. It’s funny to see everyone cashing in on the Royal Wedding though. I wonder if anyone will buy this set? xx
