Star Spangled Banner Nails

Star Spangled Banner Nails

 

4th of July nails!  For these, I just did a regular french manicure using white and red.  I then took masking tape and used a star shaped hole-punch to make a star shape, and then put the tape on the nails and painted blue over them.  Make sure to immediately remove the tape after you put the polish over it, otherwise the lines can get screwed up.  I finished up with my thin brush silver sparkle polish to go around the outside of the stars and between the red and white, and a clear top coat!

Tried out a new technique for these!  I painted a coat of silver polish and let it dry completely.  I then painted a full coat of purple on one nail, and then took a small, bunched up ball of saran wrap and dabbed at the purple, exposing some of the silver and giving it this marble effect.  Repeat on each nail one at a time and finish with a clear top coat!

For these nails, I did a dark blue base coat.  Then I took a star-shaped hole-punch and punched a hole in a piece of masking tape.  I put the masking tape over the nail, centering the star, and then painted the star area gold.  Same thing on all the other nails, and then a top coat.

For these nails, I used a regular grey base coat and then put a matte top coat on it.  I then did the tips with just a regular black for a matte/shiny contrast.
