Published on Aug 03, 2017

Singapore's turning 52 and what better way to show your love than to don the patriotic colours?

And no, we are not referring to the standard red and white apparel, step out of the norm and wear your patriotism on your nails or even your hair! What's great is these looks are not just reserved for National Day, you can rock them at any day or time of the year but since August 9 is not too far away, why not get inspired with these shades of red?

Alternatively you can go for red ombre nails and add in the crescent and stars for a more accurate depiction of the Singapore flag.
