Fourth Of July Nail Art Ideas

I did these for the Flag challenge day of Californails July challenge on Instagram. I plan on doing more of the July challenge so if you want to see more up to date nail art from me follow me there @nailbybayles. Back to my flag inspired nail art. For this nail look I used all China Glaze polishes. I started with my regular base coat, China glaze Strong Adhesive Base Coat, and then painted two coats of White On White. Then added some Fast Forward Top coat to speed up drying time. Once that was dry I applied 4 pieces striping tape starting about a third of the way down. And painted the top with Man Hunt and the bottom stripes with Salsa and immediately removed the tape. I individually placed the Glitter (or Stars) on the blue. And finished with a thick coat of top coat.

Colors for Flag Nail Art

For these simple 4th of July dot nails I started with the same base coat. Once that dried I painted two coats of China Glaze White On White. Using a dotting tool I added rows of dots starting with Opi Red Lights Ahead...Where? then Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away and China Glaze Icicle (pictured). When placing the dots I made sure to place the dots on the next row in between the dots of the previous row. I waited for as long as I could and finished with a thick coat of top coat.
