4th of July nails – stars and stripes

Whether you love or hate America you have to admit that they go all out when it comes to being patriotic, and I love that. They are a country that is proud of themselves and they are not ashamed to show it, plus in every movie they end up saving the World so we have to be thankful for that!! I have created super patriotic nails today in celebration of independence day!

I saw this design last year on Intagram, and I’ve been so excited to try it as it looks so good! You start with a white base, then using a gradient technique I sponged on the red and blue. Barry M Blood Orange for the red, and Barry M blue grape for the blue.

I then used 3 pieces of striping tape on each nail and sponged on the same blue but over the red I sponged the white. When I removed the strips it revealed the red underneath. Then for that added American feel I added silver star studs and topped it off with a clear coat.

There is something great about seeing star and stripes, and I love these nails! I don’t want to take them off! Happy 4th of July to all my American friends and family!

I would love to know what you think! Let me know!
