To create a country flag on the nails may require some practice but there are many other alternatives. Get different nail polishes of colors of your country’s flag and paint each nail with a different color or create a simple pattern like stripes or polka dot using those colors. You can create a flag nail art on just one nail while painting the others in solid colors of the flag.

Jazz up the country flag nail art with glitter or rhinestones. It can be created in various shapes and forms not necessarily occupying the entire nail surface. If you can’t achieve perfectly even stripes you can make them wavy on purpose or making your polka dots bleed.
