31 Day Challenge Day 28: Inspired By A Flag

31 Day Challenge Day 28: Inspired By A Flag

I hail from the South West of England, in the United Kingdom. From Devon, to be precise. Did you know that Devon has a flag? It’s named after St Petroc, who (according to Wikipedia) was a prince notable for ministering in Devon and Cornwall. Here’s a fun fact – the flag was adopted following a competition in 2003 and gained official recognition from Devon County Council in 2006. The colours are quite well known in Devon – I study at the University of Exeter and the sports teams all wear these colours. Anyway, lesson over! Here are my nails:

This is one of my first foray’s into striping tape. I haven’t quite got the hang of it! To get the nice thin black lines I painted striping tape and stuck it over the joins. Strangely there doesn’t seem to be a lot of black striping tape around.

These are all well used colours from my collection – Sinful Colors Exotic Green, Snow Me White and Black On Black, with the addition of green glitter from W7.

I’d be intrigued to hear from any other British Bloggers about whether your county has its own flag?
