I knew I wanted to do something patriotic for Manicure Monday this week...with the 4th of July being 2 days away and all...so I thought stars and stripes would be fun! I could have sworn I had some blue nail polish, but I looked everywhere and couldn't find it, so red and white will just have to do.
First, I painted my nails Red (Revlon Valentine). Next, once the base coat was dry, I used a toothpick and applied white (Butter London Pearly Queen) in the shape of stars on one hand and stripes on the other. I hate painting the finger nails on my right hand as it is, but throw lines into the mix and it can get ugly fast...the stripes aren't perfect, but they have character!
I love the way this turned out, I just wish there was some blue in there too! Are you wearing any patriotic nail polish for Independence Day?
