I had decided to paint my nails for the 4th of July. I was just going to paint them alternating red, white and blue but then I decided to add a twist on two fingers for each hand. It didn’t come out quite as nice as I would have liked but it came out better than it could have. haha!
I started by painting the middle three fingers of each hand white (well, technically opaque). The middle finger was staying all white. I was using white as the base for the other two.
It’s hard to see but I added a thin strip of tape across the middle of my two fingers. I wish I would have made the tape a bit thinner though.
I painted my pinky finger solid red and the tops of my other nails red as well.
Then I added blue to the tips of the nails and made my thumb solid blue. When it dried a little, I had Hubby take off the tape.
Then I used nail polish remover around the edges to make it look prettier and added a clear finishing coat of polish.
Well, there you have it! My pretty nails for the fourth of July. I wanted to have Hubby take a picture of both hands but I forgot to. Oops!
