4th of July Nail Art

Happy Fourth of July! To celebrate America's Independence Day, I decided to do some nail art. I have so many amazing patriotic polishes now from makers such as 365 Days of Color (American Spirit) and Pretty & Polished (Freedom Calling), or even Julep's America. I actually couldn't choose one to use, so I went with nail art. Holidays are my favorite time to do nail art and go wild with it!


I kept it pretty simple and just used red, white, and blue. I first started off by painting all of my nails white with Wet n Wild's French White Creme. I then used painter's tape to make lines on three of my fingers, and used Jordana's Holiday Red for the stripes.


For the blue I used Revlon's Royal. It is definitely one of my favorite shades of blue, and since I couldn't decide between a bright blue or a dark blue, it seemed perfect since it's somehow both at once! I painted my thumb and middle finger blue, and then used a dotting tool to create white dots all over.


Then for something extra, I added some star shaped rhinestones on my three striped fingers. I have never really used rhinestones before, but they were very easy to apply. I got them to stay in place easily by applying my top coat right over them. All in all, this was very easy to do, and I love how it turned out! It's patriotic, but also reminds me of the current nautical trend with the horizontal stripes, blue, and red. 

I will be pretty busy for Independence Day, but I wish everybody a happy and safe holiday! Remember to be careful with fireworks, and enjoy some barbecue or some sun by the pool!
