Patriotic Nails

The 4th has come and gone already and I am just now posting about this mani, yikes! I’ll get right to it then!

To start off this mani, I did 2 coats of OPI – This Crown Needs a Gown on my ring finger and two coats of Zoya – Sooki on all of the others. Once they were dry to the touch, I stamped the stripes in Funky Fingers – Gesso and plate BM-XL23 – it took multiple tries to get my stripes straight (very frustrating!) On my ring finger, I painted a coat of Sinful Colors – Star Blast Off and then applied a coat of Seche Vite to all of my nails.

Once the striped nails were dry, I taped them off at an angle so I could paint the top corner on each nail. I used 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Endless Blue. I allowed that to dry for a couple of minutes then used a striping tool to add a silver stripe between the red and white stripes and the blue color block. Finally, I used a dotting tool to add silver dots to the blue field on each nail.

Now, if you follow me on Instagram, you will already know that I posted an additional patriotic mani – but I had put it together months before to submit for Nail It! Magazine – and to my great surprise and delight they published it in their July/August magazine, along with another one of my manis! Here’s the other patriotic mani:

I liked both of these quite a bit! This is about the only time of year I will even think about wearing a bold blue color, so look forward to me bringing those colors out again this time next year lol!
