31 Week Nail Art Challenge - Week 28: Inspired By A Flag

Today's post is Week 28 of the 31 Week Nail Art Challenge, or Inspired by a Flag. As you may remember from my September First Friday Favorites post, I ADORE the show The Royals on E! Network (about a fictitious British royal family). I am also obsessed with the real British Royal Family (Kate Middleton obsession much?). So when I saw this prompt coming I wanted to do nails inspired by none other than the Union Jack. These were actually painted for LAST Sunday but I held off on posting them so I could keep the challenge in order. Here are my nails inspired by a flag:
Because it was inspired by a flag I did the Union Jack on my ring finger and then stamped two crowns on my index and middle fingers as a nod to The Royals. Then because I can't leave well enough alone I added some more pizzaz on my pinky nail by adding some rhinestones in red, blue, and white.
And just a few more photos. The Royals premiered its second season on November 15th....and for my premiere watching party I created a giant Big Ben and some fruit tartlets for our show watching.
The left most was a delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter tartlet, made of chocolate filling with a peanut butter icing dollop on top. The middle was a Chocolate Covered Strawberry Tartlet, which was strawberry filling topped with three chocolate chips and powdered sugar. The right most was a Cheesecake Tartlet, which was cheesecake filling topped with crushed graham cracker. They were a big hit for everyone that was over here for the premiere party! The cheesecake and graham cracker one was my personal fave. If you want a post on the recipe comment below or email me!

Also hung this adorable DIY banner near the TV:

 Only an hour until this week's episode...Cheers!
