'Murica! Fourth of July Nail Art

Patriotic Fourth of July Nails - The Nailasaurus

Every year, I get sucked in to the July 4th mani mania and end up creating one myself even though I'm not in the US and won't be celebrating myself!

For the nail art, I used Rimmel Raw as NightGraffiti Nails Ice White and Sally Hansen Pacific Blue as my base colours. 

On my first and middle fingers, I did some glitter placement with Glequins from Born Pretty Store (#3 and #11). There are my stars!

For the stripes, I laid down some striping tape so the white would shine through and then blotted on the red using the textured saran wrap technique. The texture is made from mostly Barry M Burgundy Crush and Rimmel Raw as Night with a tiny bit of Nicole by OPI The Coral of the Story and Graffiti Nails Ice White.

It's all topped with two coats of Glisten & Glow HK Girl.

  3. Cute! I agree about getting caught up in it--the colours and stars and stripes and glitz is just too much fun to ignore. I like the glitter-placement nails! xx

  6. nice and clean. I'm hypnotized with the textured stripes. At first glance I tough it was some sort of jelly sandwich with bar glitter.
