Summer Challenge: Day 41 - Opening Ceremony/Flag

I cannot wait for the Opening Ceremony tonight! This is my favorite part of the Olympics! I love the performance and the parade of athletes.  I get that feeling of pride for my country when they walk on to the field.  Go USA!!

My inspiration for this challenge came from the outfits Team USA will be wearing tonight.  I was going to do this abstract design based on a photo I saw in a preview, but really wanted to stand behind my team! I also didn't want to do the typical flag design.

Here is what Team USA will be wearing tonight:

And my take on the outfit:

I started with 1 coat of Milani White on the Spot.

I added a red and blue vertical stripe using Color Club Art Club Red and Electric Universe.

My next step was to add butter LONDON Blagger on my tips. I decided to skip making perfect lines and just kind of ruffled it on.

Topped off with 1 coat of NYC.

Bring on the ceremony!!! Woo Hoo Team USA!!
