Day 26-Inspired by Your Country or Canadian Stereotype Nails!

I haven’t given up the 31 Day Nail Challenge yet! I am determined to finish with my teammates so without further ado, Day 26 is all about being inspired by your country and so I thought I’d have a little Canadian fun and showcase our very good sense of humour ;-)

We say “Eh?” and apologize all the time so of course that had to make it on to my nails! We also love our Royal Canadian Mounties, hockey and live in igloos! I would actually love to try living in an igloo. It seems quite cozy. The only polishes I really used were OPI-My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Cult Nails-Evil Queen and sponged on China Glaze-For Audrey for my thumb. The rest of this design was done in acrylic paint.

  14. lol lol I say "eh?" a lot. I feel like it's made worse by the fact that I'm also french and we use a drawn out "ehhhh" instead of saying "pardon?" when we need someone to repeat something haha. Love these :)
