Jamaica Independence Day Nails 2014

Hi Everyone, Today Jamaica turns 52, Happy Independence day!

The Slavery Abolition Act on August 1, 1834 ended slavery in the British Empire but Jamaica didn’t receive independence from Britain until August 6, 1962.

In this design I decided to include the Rastafarian colors which is also the color of the Ethiopian flag, which many rastas believe to be their homeland. Those colors are green, yellow and red, I took creative licence and also added black, because Rastafarianism is blended so much into the Jamaican culture.

I went around looking for a simpler green, couldn’t find one, anyone know of one please let me know. (I should have pick up a back up.)
