Mani-Monday: Fourth of July

Fourth of July is coming up and we definitely need to get our nails in the spirit! I wanted to create something fun and patriotic. I love the look of each nail being different. This nail look takes some time to create and some patience, but the results will definitely make your nails a showstopper. To get this look:
You will need:
Base coat
Red nail polish
White nail polish
Blue nail polish
Top coat
Striping brush or toothpick
Star nail stamp (optional)
Striping tape
Step 1: First, apply your base coat. Then apply two coats of your white polish on all your fingers except the ring finger. I used ‘White Hot’ by Sephora by OPI. Apply two coats of the blue on your ring finger. I used ‘Sapphire Siren’ by Maybelline. Wait for your nails to dry.
Step 2: PINKY—apply striping tape on the very tip on your nail and then leave a little bit of space and then apply another piece of striping tape and then leave a bit of space again and then apply another piece of striping tape. On the top space apply the blue polish and then on the bottom space the red polish. I used ‘It girl’ by Sephora. Peel the striping tape off immediately. RING FINGER—using a star shaped nail stamp or you can freehand it to create the stars on your ring finger (if you cannot create the stars, you can just create polka dots). MIDDLE FINGER—using a striping brush or toothpick write out July with the polish and 4th with the red polish. POINTER—apply the striping tape leaving space between the next piece. Apply a generous amount of the red polish and peel off the striping tape right away. THUMB—using your red nail polish create a diagonal and then do the same with the blue nail polish.
Step 3: Then, Lastly, apply a top coat and you are done with your patriotic nails!
Have an amazing Fourth of July!
