Anyone who has been following my blog for awhile now knows... I like to get in the holiday spirit with my nails! July 4th is coming up so I decided to do some red, white and blue nails. In the past I did detailed flags on each nail:


It was a lot of effort so I decided to make it a little easier on myself this time. I used:


- Julep's "January" Nail Vernis as the red
- Zoya's "Breezi" as the blue
- Kiss French Nail Art pen for white stripes
- Silver star nail decor from my Julep Maven Mystery Valentine's Day box






While the blue polish was still wet, I added the silver stars with a Q-tip. They reminded me of Chinese throwing stars because they were very sharp. Not what I was hoping for (and they almost all chipped off after I showered so good thing I got a pic before).



I really liked how they came out!

What are you wearing on your nails?

  3. So fun! I got a pedicure yesterday and went with blue and glitter to be festive. I'm thinking I will do my fingernails red for the 4th. I'm sure I couldn't make stripes look good!

  5. How fun is this!!! I haven't tried my nails, but I did a flag pedicure last year. {It didn't turn out as nice as yours!} My big toe was the blue part and the others were stripes! Here's the post! http://styleofsam.blogspot.com/2011/07/star-spangled-toes.html

    LOVE this!

  10. Ah you are so creative Kim. This weekend I have a french manicure, which I am going to learn how to do myself. I'm finally enjoying some colour, but I also like simple too. Goodness I feel so grown up with nails, how did I live without them for so long?!
