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?
An accented pink or red lash would definitely get everyone looking at NDP!

You can also opt for a warmer tone ombre if you want to keep your look classy.
But if you are in a professional working environment, you can try reddish highlights like this ...
Red Bob by Art Noise Japanese Hair Salon
or peek-a-boo red for that hint of wildness while still looking professional.
You can stick to the classic red or go darker for a more mature look.
Reddish brown is a good in between for those who want to rock red hair but unsure if red might suit them.
Contrasting red highlights against your natural jet black hair is also another great alternative if you don't want to go full red.

Doesn't this manicure nail the design of the Singapore flag without being too cheesy?
Red Ombre Nails by Branche Nail Salon
Alternatively you can go for red ombre nails and add in the crescent and stars for a more accurate depiction of the Singapore flag.
But if all that seems a bit over the top, classic red nails with mandala design might be more suited for you.
Still too much? It can't get any subtle than a simple red accent nail.
