Celebrate Independence Day in style with patriotic polish

Celebrate Independence Day in style with patriotic polish

By Jessica Sly

How will you be celebrating Fourth of July 2014? A picnic? Family day at the beach? Boating? Fireworks? While you’re at it, why not give your nails a patriotic paint job to honor our independence in all of its red, white and blue glory.

1. Apply a clear base coat and let dry.

2. Paint a slanted edge on nail tip with blue polish. Apply more than one coat if you prefer it darker.

3. Alternating red and white, paint stripes above blue polish. Start thick and taper off to a thin line. Leave a little space between each stripe.

Note: This step will be easier and more precise if you use nail art polish that comes equipped with a slender brush.

4. After the colors have dried completely, apply a top coat.

Tip: To get a smooth, straight edge on the tip of your nail, use tape as a guide. Make sure the base coat is completely dry or the tape might pull it off. After painting the tip, remove the tape carefully, and don’t let the polish dry too much before you do.
