Patriotic 4th of July Nail Designs
Easy – Patriotic Dots: Just create your base with two coats of Myriam, a red crème polish. Let it dry, then use a toothpick or a dotting tool (see below) to make dots with Brigette (the white polish), let that dry completely, then add additional dots with Paulina (a peacock blue polish). Don’t forget to extend the life of your lovely new manicure with top coat!
Stars and Stripes: This design is a little more challenging but follow this tutorial and you’ll be all set. On all of your nails, paint two coats of Myriam, your red polish. Let dry. On your accent nail, use scotch tape as a guide to paint even stripes of Brigette (the white polish). I always make guidelines with scotch tape for my lines, or else they often get squiggly! Let your lines dry, then with a toothpick, draw blue stars on your accent nail with Paulina (your blue polish).
For a Pro – Red, White & Blue Waves: Slightly more advanced. Paint half of your nail with Myriam, your red polish, and add a scalloped edge. Let dry, then apply the white scalloped paint layer with Brigette. Let dry, then finish with a third scalloped layer of Paulina (blue).
Optional: You can add a touch a sparkle on top of the blue with Kirby. Be sure to finish with a top coat to make your mani last and shine!
