4th of July Nail Art

The fireworks have started and I am going insane.  Not only do I have to listen to the fireworks, my dogs are going crazy at every boom and bang!  It is going to be an interesting weekend!  Just a quick post to show my Independence Day mani for Finger Foods Theme Buffet.

I have a love/hate relationship with this.  Why?  Well first there is the DMP that show all the flaws.  Next is the HORRIBLE staining.  I should have used a white base coat.  The joys of being a nail art blogger.  I love it because it is so cute despite its flaws.

I started with one coat of Avon Ballerina.  After it was fully dry, I added hole reinforcers and painted 2/3 of the tip with Zoya Blaze.

Next it was time for Zoya Dream.

Finally I added some stripes and holographic stars.  I completed this at about 1:00 am this morning, so my stripes were a little wonky.  You cannot even notice it IRL.  That is it.  For such a complicated look, it was really easy.  Now if I could just get my nails whitened.  Anybody have suggestions?  Thanks for looking and commenting!



  1. Love that you did the design on the tips! Its very different and unique from other 4th of July nails.
