Fourth Of July Nail Design Tutorial

Hello Friends and Happy Fourth of July!! Today is one that I plan to enjoy!!! All of the preparation was completed early last night!! I'll be sharing pictures of my Fourth themed dessert later tonight! So yummy!! and fun and festive!!

In honor of our Independence Day I have a Fourth of July manicure for you. I have posted pictures of the four easy steps to this beauty! I know its a little late for you to enjoy unless you do your manicure in the next hour...but try mixing up the colors with the same design for some fun funkiness!! Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Here are my bare naked nails!! Yikes...pretty ugly without the pretty polish. I always start with a base of gel to help the strength of my nails...without it they are pretty brittle and break easily.

Another key component to all of my manicures is to start with a white base nail polish. You will find that those polishes that look thin (you know the one that was .99 cents and you thought what the heck...then when you get home and put it on your nails it looks like a light cloud of what might be the color pink....) well this will solve all of your problems with nail polish color. Especially with the *HOT* trend of neons, a white base really helps them *POP*.  

This picture is the step of adding red stripes for the first effect of your red and white striped flag component. I did a thick stripe down the middle of the nail and used my thin nail art brush to add one thin red line on each side of the thick line down the middle. 

The second step of the red and white stripes is to take your white nail art paint (thin brush) and make two thin white stripes down the middle of the large red stripe.

For the last step I used my handy dandy scotch tape to make the triangle tip and added a glitter star. I always top my manicures with Seche Vite Fast works wonders and allows me to enjoy my manicure shortly after it is complete. This stuff is amaze balls!! And if you are balking over the $8.99 price tag trust me its worth it!! I am a penny pincher...and this is one that I will SPLURGE for!
Thanks for stopping by! If you haven't subscribed to my site yet you can do so on the left!! Help me reach my goal of 1,000 readers by the end of 2012!!

Love Always,
Your Personal Nail Porn Star!
