Summer Challenge: Day - 26 Euro 2012 Football

I think that if I lived in Europe I would be a huge football fan.  There is something that I find interesting/appealing about the game, but because I have never seen a match I'm not that involved.  It sure does look like fun when you see the fans!

I wasn't sure how I wanted to complete this challenge.  At first I thought that I would just do English flags and be done, but I didn't want to focus on just one country.  In the end I picked 4 countries and did their flags.

Can you guess the countries based on the flags?????

I tried to do step pictures so you could see the progression of the design.  Some of the pictures are not that great because the lighting at my dinning room table sucks!

My start:
I used Zoya Pippa and Robyn plus Milani White on the Spot.

Using a striping brush I added the red cross to my pinky with Nailtiques Moscow.

On my ring finger I taped off a section and added Nailtiqes Moscow.

On my middle finger I taped off a triangle at the bottom and one side.

Then I added Milani White on the Spot.

On the opposite side I added Nailtiques Moscow.

Using striping tape I taped off a cross on my index finger.  I added Zoya Robyn, but I forgot to take a picture.

Back to the ring finger.  I taped off another section and added black, using China Glaze Liquid Leather.

I topped it off with 2 coats of NYC.

I had a couple bumps but overall I think it turned out pretty good.
Have you identified the flags???
