Nationality - Artsy Wednesday

 
 
The theme in our Artsy Wednesday is this week Independence Day – and my interpretation is my national background - I have chosen to paint flags a little twist.
I live in Denmark and am a Danish citizen – thus my index.
My parents both were from Finland – thus my middle finger.
I was born in Sweden – thus my ring finger.
My surname from birth is German and still is. My grandfather moved as a young man from Germany to Finland – so I painted the German flag on my pinkie.
Check out what the other girls in Artsy Wednesday did in this weeks challenge
Michelle - Lab Muffin,  Alanna - Pretty Purple Polish, Holly - Hooked, Tif - Polished Genious, Lyndsey - Nails by Ms. Lizard, Catrine - Unnakednails, Melanie - Nail & Polish, Jessica - Beauty Gnome, Kamen - Kaka Beauty Blog 
 
Temaet i Artsy Wednesday i denne uge er Independence Day, hvilket bl.a. også kan fortolkes som nationalfølelse – og jeg har malet flag med et lille twist.
Jeg bor i Danmark og er dansk statsborger – min pegefinger.
Mine forældre kom fra Finland – min langemand.
Jeg blev født i Sverige – min ringfinger.
Mit efternavn er og har altid været tysk, idet min farfar som ung flyttede fra Tyskland til Finland – derfor har jeg det tyske flag på lillefingeren.
Used colors/brugte farver: China Glaze Hey Sailor, OPI Alpine Snow, Nails Inc. Baker Street, acrylic color.
