American Flag/Fourth of July Nails

Hi everyone! This is the nail design I decided on for this fourth of July season since I live in the United States. It is way simpler than it looks, especially if you do the dots instead of the stars. I thought it was a great, simple and patriotic nail look. I hope you all enjoy!

Start off with a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

Apply a red polish as the base color, I used Kleancolor’s “Red Alert.”

With a striper brush and a white color, paint stripe going vertically on the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush, Apple Barrel’s “White” and “Bright Red” (for clean up) acrylic paints.

Using a blue color, paint a rectangle in one corner of the nail. I used Apple Barrel’s “Cobalt Blue” acrylic paint.

In the blue rectangle you can paint white dots, starts or even just one star. I decided on the dots just to make it simpler and because I feel like I have done stars a lot recently. I used an XS dotting tool to do this.

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used China Glaze’s “No Chip Top Coat.”

Honduran Flag Nails 🇭🇳

Hi everyone! This tutorial is on how to create these Honduran Flag Nails. I decided to do this because this is where my family is from and I recently went to visit and wanted to have the flags on my nails while I was there. (Hence why I haven’t been able to upload until now). I hope you all enjoy! As always, all the products used are listed below.

With a striper brush and a white color, paint a thick stripe going vertically down the center of the nail. Do this by painting two stripes and then filling in the gap. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

With the same blue color and an XS dotting tool, place five dots where the stars will be painted on this white stripe.

With a detail brush and the blue color paint on the stripes. Do this in a similar way to how you would draw them on a piece of paper. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush.
