Red, White, & Blue Nails
I have a dear friend who loves America…and anything red, white, and blue…so I always keep an eye out for cute things to show her. Last weekend Nicole and I attended a bridal shower for one of our friends with some ladies from church. One of them had an amazing manicure; her nails were french tip, only instead of white polish there was red and white stripes on one half and solid blue with a star of the other to create an American flag. I loved it! And was inspired to try to create something similar to celebrate the 4th of July.
These were by far my favorite design. I painted my big toe blue and my other toes red and white and free handed the stripes (you can tell cause they look messy).
Nicole graciously let me paint her nails to have a few more designs. For a simple design, I painted her toes with the same dark blue. Then once they were dry, I used a glitter polish with red and silver glitter to create a red, white, & blue theme that was a little more calm.
My last 4th of July theme nails, although Nicole also said the reminded her of Captain America. Maybe this can be used for a costume as well?
For her fingers, I started with a base of a lighter blue. Once that was dry, I used french tip stickers to paint a white french tip on her nails. Allow the white to dry a few minutes before removing stickers. Do any touch ups as needed.
Create a star stencil as mentioned earlier, only this time the stars will be a little bigger to cover the whole nail. Paint stars red to match theme. Allow polish to dry a few minutes before removing tape and you’re done!
