American Flag Nails

Welcome! This is my first blog, Glittery and Polished! I hope to share the most glittery and unique polishes I can find, awesome and unique designs that will mostly have glitter or neat ideas, and try all kinds of new polishes!  So enjoy!

Me being the proud American I am, I decided that since Memorial Day was coming up, I had to make an American flag design, glitter included. So somehow I used a few polishes to make this happen!  You can use any white you like, but for the red I used Glamorous Life by Essence and for the blue I used Galaxy by Hot Topic. The stars were made from glitter bought at A.C. Moore. 

Now I painted the last 3 fingers on each hand with Galaxy, and then painted the first 2 fingers on each hang with Glamorous Life. Then I painted white stripes on my red fingers with a very small paint brush. I then put top coat on my blue fingers, used tweezers to put the glitter stars on, then put top coat on top of that to seal it in. I may not be a pro at perfect lines yet, but it still came out looking pretty awesome. 

So behold, American flag nails! Remember to honor our vets and the fallen this Memorial Day.
