How are y'all doing today!
Wondering what Independence day I'm talking about? Lol...
I shall explain my loves.
In case you didn't know, I am originally Nigerian, and I was born in Nigeria.
Every October 1st Nigeria Celebrates the day we gained Independence from the United Kingdom.
And of course I had to create a mani to wish Nigeria and Nigerians a Happy Independence Day.
P.S: Most young people call Nigeria, Naija, hence the title of my post today. I guess you can say Naija is slang name for Nigeria. :-D
Alright, School's over.. let's get to the fun part of Today's post!
The decision on which polishes to use was pretty much made for me. lol...
Nigeria's Flag is GREEN, WHITE, GREEN, so I just had to figure out EXACTLY what I wanted to do with those colors. Here is my result!!!
|Nigeria Nails, Naija manicure, Naija Mani|
I went all out on my left hand and did a water marble with the two colors.
Then on my Right hand, I did a regular Tape mani that resembles the Flag of Nigeria.
On My thumbs, I wrote out "I Rep" and "Naija". Meaning, I Represent Nigeria!!!
I Love America and Represent her too by the way. :-P
Individual Pictures of both hands.
Right Hand: Nigerian Flag. Simple Tape Mani. Love the result, and I must mention the Polishes I used. The green is Finger Paint - Go Van Gogh. The white is Kleancolor - White.
Left Hand: I used the same colors for my left hand, and Water Marbled.
OMG, Please, please, Can I Scream ABOUT HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT THE RESULT OF MY WATER MARBLE??!
Wait, I screamed already (all caps).. But you guys... My water marble came out decent!! I actually sort of intentionally made sure each nail doesn't look like the next... Ok, full truth time.. I tried to make them look the same, and it just wasn't working, so I gave up and DECIDED I WANTED A DIFFERENT LOOK for each nail Anyway! LOL...
But But... Yes, I did a fairly decent water marbling. I'm beyond excited.
That's it for my Naija Independence Day Mani guys.
Are any of you out there Nigerians?
Is anyone a Dual Citizen?
Were you born in one country and now a Citizen of another?
Share with me if you want.... I Love reading these things.
I was born in Nigeria, I Live, Breathe, Speak, Eat Nigeria.. lol.. and I'm a Citizen of America... Love Both Countries so dearly, so don't even ask me to choose. LOL... (That's why I made sure to do a 4th of July Mani).
Happy Independence Day to Nigeria Once Again.
May you Live Long and I pray all shall be well with you.
Till Later darlings, God Bless.
