Team USA Nails

 Happy almost Fourth of July! America is another year older. And to celebrate I made this cute nail tutorial for those who feel the need to display their patriotism on their fingers!

You're going to need. A top coat, a base coat, nail polish remover, Q-tips, and a chopstick/tooth pick--something that you can make small dots with. You're also going to need a blue polish, a red polish, a gold polish, a white polish, and an optional sparkly top coat. I'm using Sally Hansen "Hard to Get" [white], China Glaze "Ruby Pumps" [red], Nicole by OPI "Listen to Your Momager" [blue], Nicole by OPI "Glitter in My Stocking" [gold], and OPI "Servin' Up Sparkle" [sparkly top coat]. 

Apply a base coat. Then paint your pinky, middle finger, and thumb with the blue color. Paint your ring finger and pointer finger white.

 Using the chopstick or the toothpick, make gold dots.

Then draw on line using the red polish. Polishes with smaller brushes will be easier to work with. That is one of the reasons I choose China Glaze "Ruby Pumps". Also, don't worry about getting red on your skin because we will remove all of that later with nail polish remover. For those who are nail art masters, just stay inside the lines and you should be fine.  After you remove the red polish, you can stop here.

But I decided to add a sparkly top coat on top of the blue fingers. In my mind the gold dots are fireworks in the sky and the glitter makes it look like the starry night. It really adds a beautiful touch. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I hope you have a FANTASTIC Fourth of July. These nails would also be really cool to sport during the Olympics to show your support of Team USA!
