Fireworks

It’s Guy Fawkes Night! At least, it will be tonight… For those of you around the world that have no idea what I’m talking about, once a year on 5th November the UK remembers an event in history where a man called Guy Fawkes tried to commit treason and blow up the houses of parliament! Nowadays, we celebrate with fireworks and usually light a bonfire with a man on top, supposedly him!

We have a little rhyme we always say too….

Remember remember the 5th of November,
gun powder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot!

So today I have a fireworks manicure for you to celebrate this fun and freezing night of the year!

Fireworks Nail Art

I started by painting my nails with two coats of Golden Rose Navy. I then used the Models Own Champagne Collection and a tiny paintbrush to paint on the firework explosions. The green is Green Flash, the purple is Mystic Mauve, the gold is Gold Rush, and the silver is Sterling Silver.

Why don’t you try this super easy manicure for your celebration tonight!

    Your sparkly fireworks are really pretty! I’m not from the UK, so I had never heard of Guy Fawkes Night!

      Thanks! They were so easy to do, but so effective! Yeah Guy Fawke’s night is really popular here, there will be fireworks going off everywhere all night! I don’t have a garden though, so I’ve just bought some sparklers we can play with on the porch!
