I wanted to come up with something simple yet will shout the colors of the American flag -- red, white, and blue. It has been quite a long time since I did manicures wherein I used different colors as base colors. After doing this, I was suddenly reminded how fun it is to look at
Without further ado, here it is:
This freehand nail design was patterned after the United States flag. Red and white stripes, stars on blue, and the polka dots on the white background is my way of saying that this event deserves a celebration!
I used the following as base colors:
- White: Dazzle Dry White Lightning (2 coats)
- Red: Dazzle Dry Rapid Red (2 coats)
- Blue: Dazzle Dry Mystic Blue (2 coats)
I hand-painted the design using acrylic paints and a stripper nail art brush. I found this brush more manageable to use even for painting the stars because of the precision the shape requires. I also used a dotting tool for the polka dots.
I'll be attending a networking party tonight with these nails! I hope I can pull it off with a little black dress. I initially wanted to do something that would match. But I'd rather have these fun nails instead. :)
"Happy Independence Day to all my friends in the United States! Have a great weekend!"
