World Cup Nails! with tutorial

Hey guys! one day late for my nails... and I don't even have an excuse for it. Well, I guess its exam time so I can say i have been trying to study? That, and I was going to paint them this morning, but my friend was making waffles... and who can say no to waffles!?
Anyway, time for my nails! As everyone should know the world cup is on at the moment. So to commemorate this, I have decided to do some world cup nails!

On my pinky there is the cup/trophy symbol, then on my ring finger is the parrot, next is the ball design (the brazuca),  then the australian jersey, and on my thumb is the 2014 symbol.

I am really proud of these! Though the trophy on my little finger I think could have been done better... 

Then on my right hand I decided i couldn't do that much detail with my non-dominant hand, so I just did a couple of flags of the big teams. Netherlands (my second team), Brazil, England, Spain (yes, I didn't do the emblem detail on the flag) and germany.

The polishes used:
China Glaze White on white
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky
China Glaze Salse
China Glaze Man Hunt
China Glaze Starboard
China Glaze Hanging in the Balance
China Glaze Liquid Leather
OPI Greenwich Villiage
OPI Tangerine Scene
China Glaze Peachy Keen
China Glaze Def Defying

I have also made a quick tutorial on how to do these nails. 
1. Use a good base coat to start (I use CND Stickey) and then apply 2 coats of white, or yellow for the index finger
2. Start out by outlining the details
3. Fill some of these in, and add more details in other colours
4 - 7. Continue adding more detail and more colours
8. Use a good top coat to make the manicure last longer.

I know these aren't very detailed instructions, but hopefully the pictures help!
