Summer Challenge: Day 13 - Summer Fete

I am so proud of myself right now!  I know that I don't have the mad skills that some of my fellow nail bloggers do but man, I am improving!  My freehand skills are getting better everyday and this design is proof.  It's not as perfect as I would like it but it is so much better than I thought it would be!

For today's challenge we were supposed to create a design that represents a Summer Fete, which in the US is a Summer Faire/Festival.  I decided to represent the booths/tables and flags/bunting. 

I started by applying Essence You Belong To Me.

I taped off half of my nail to apply the stripes of the table/booth. 

First, I applied Sinful Colors Nail Art in Bad Chick.

Then I applied Essence Walk on Air, using a striping brush.

I used the same steps for the red and white striped table/booth, but I used OPI Quarter of A Cent-Cherry.  I also added the first part of my bunting/flags using Sinful Colors Nail Art in Time Off.

I added the little flags using the same colors and a striping brush when needed.

I outlined the flags with Time Off.

Lastly, topped off with 2 coats of SV.

Just so you know, my pinky is my favorite! The flags are perfect!  :)
