Manicure Monday: Patriotic Nails

IMG_5075

I’ve had my outfit for the 4th of July picked out for quite some time, but with the holiday quickly approaching, I had to make sure my nails were just as festive. I came up with this combination of red, white and blue with a hint of sparkle using my OPI and Essie polishes. I wanted to incorporate my stars and stripes theme, but since I’m not a nail artist, I opted for white polka dots instead. This is a great patriotic look and I’m so happy with the way they turned out. To achieve the same look, you can follow the simple tutorial below.
