Stars and Stripes: Fourth of July Mani

Another patriotic mani! This one is very traditional with stars and stripes representing the American flag:

stars-and-stripes

Once I figured out what to do, this wasn’t hard at all. I painted my thumb and first two fingers blue, my ring finger white and my pinkie red. Then I stamped white stars on my middle finger and red stripes on my ring finger. That’s it! Super easy and looks super patriotic!

Sadly, I a bit of damage occurred with the top coat application – you can see some of my stars smeared a little bit and I lost some detail. It had stamped perfectly – and I even let it get really good and dry and floated the top coat. But – no one has noticed. 🙂 The overall effect is still there and I love it! It’s coming off tomorrow and I’ll be doing one final patriotic look for the holiday. Stay tuned!
