American Flag Nails: New Technique!

by - 10 September





Remember the american flag nails I attempted for the first time? It was a bit of a gamble to promise to blog about something I have never tried and wasn't absolutely certain it would work out. But I did it, and here's me doing it again!

Except with a different technique! I am adding this to the 'MODERATE' on difficulty as this is so much more easier and quicker and mess-free than my first one.

You will need:

Image

- Nail Art Polish in Red and Blue (or a nail art pen in red and blue, or nail art brush)

- BarryM Matt White

- BarryM 3 in 1 Basecoat Topcoat & Nail Hardener All in One

Step 1: Apply base coat.

Step 2: After the base coat has dried apply white nail polish.

(This isn't the blue I will be using this time. This was the old blue I used on my first post about these nails, but if you like, this is Barry M's Cobalt Blue).







The difference: (Left) New polish, (Right) Old polish.



Step 3: After the white polish has dried use a red nail art pen or nail art brush to draw vertical red lines.

Step 4: After the red lines are dried, draw on a rectangular box to the left of the flag with a blue nail art pen or brush. (If this is your left hand then it should be against the end of your nail, and if it is your right hand, it should be against the tip of your fingernails. (Left hand only is illustrated in the image below).

Step 5: As you can see in the image above, I have filled one in, after drawing the rectangles, fill them in.

After this, when your nails have dried, gloss over with a top coat. I used my usual BarryM 3 in 1 Basecoat Topcoat & Nail Hardener All in One.
