NOTD: 4th of July Nail Design!

Every year on 4th of July I focus way more on my makeup than my nails, but this year I saw so many Independence Day manicures that I was inspired to create my own!



The polishes I used were Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish in Blue it, a limited edition Mary Kay polish in Radiant Red, and a Sinful polish from a beauty supply store called Shirley's Silver.

To make the stripes first I applied a coat of the red or blue. Then I took small pieces nail tape that I got from amazon, and I put them on my nails after they had completely dried. Finally I applied the silver polish and immediately pulled off the tape.

The stars are from a pack of Kiss Nail Artist Metallic Accents. 


 I hope you enjoyed this fairly simple design for the 4th of July! Are you doing anything special with your makeup or nails tomorrow?

    1. It's funny because I had originally planned on doing stripes on all of my nails, but I messed up the middle and index finger and decided to stick on some stars instead of fixing them! I actually like how it looks with the stars way better!
