NAILED IT!

Every year, we get really into the 4th of July mani. You might remember THIS ONE from last year. Let’s do it again! Here’s another idea for creating a super cute mani for a “Festive Fourth”! (more…)

NAILED IT!

As you may have noticed, I’m slightly obsessed with doing fun things on my nails these days. Holidays are always a great excuse to get creative. Here’s my Independence Day inspired manicure. I used the stick-on nail polish in blue + white nautical stripes and added one simple solid red nail to each hand.

1: Tools- clear base/top coat, red nail polish, stick-on nail polish strips, nail file, cuticle nippers (optional)

2: Apply a thin base coat, and then fit the correct nail polish strips to each finger. Skip any random one you want and leave it for the red polish. I chose the ring finger.

3: (Optional) Cut the excess off with cuticle nippers or scissors.

4: File the edges. This will give you a perfect edge with the nail polish strip.

5. Paint the plain nail red. I did 2 coats.

6. Go over everything (polish strips + red nail) with a clear top coat.

I hope you all have a great 4th of July. Be safe. Can’t wait to see your photos!
