4th of July Nails

I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July!  I had a nice relaxing three day weekend with friends and family.  These are the nails I wore for the holiday.  They definitely aren’t perfect, but they still look good!  The colors I used for this fun mani were OPI Dating a Royal (blue), Julep Sheila (red), and Julep Nicolette (white).

OPI dating a royal is a crelly- it goes on like a jelly but is opaque in two easy coats.  The formula of Julep Shelia is amazing!  A perfect one coat, no bald spots or anything!  Nicolette also had a pretty amazing formula.  This manicure is actually pretty easy to create with just a few easy steps.

I used NailVinyls (www.nailvinyls.com) to create the stripes and a star shaped hole punch that I purchased from AC Moore with tape for the stars.  I learned that it’s easier to put the tape on wax or parchment paper to prevent the hole punch from sticking to the tape when punching out the stars.  Pretty simple for something that looks difficult.

I hope everyone has an amazing work week.  Back to the grind.
