Patriotic 4th of July Nail Art

Happy Independence Day (two days early)! I’m in a very patriotic mood, and what better way to show it than with good ‘ol red, white, and blue with stripes and stars! I stayed up half the night working on this mani and I actually did both hands (sometimes I only do nail art on one hand, shhhhh…). This is very sparkly in person because I used two gorgeous Gelish glitter polishes for the main colors.

I first used a dotting tool to apply the blue half moons.  The first coat is Gelish Caution, and for the second coat I used Gelish Holiday Party Blues.  Then I painted the red onto the tips using Gelish Queen of Hearts for the first coat and Good Gossip for the second coat.  (The two glitter polishes wouldn’t have been opaque enough on their own in just 2 coats.)  I applied a thin layer of Gelish TIO and then stamped on the stripes and stars with Konad White polish. The stripes are from Bundle Monster plate BM301, and the stars are from Cheeky plate CH5. I used my dotting tool again to apply a thin line of silver glitter over the top of the half moon with Ink Chrome Silver, and finished it off with another coat of Gelish TIO.
