4th of July Nail Tutorial #1

Posted

With kids, more is MORE! We're going to do some fun nail tutorials leading up to Independence day and it only seemed fitting to start with one designed by a kid! This is a tad messy but oh so fun and will, no doubt, delight her inner MORE.  

Our nail tattoos are designed to be used just with water, if you are looking for a mess free option.  That said, they also work great with polish and other nail goodies, which is how we've used them here.  

Start with your favorite nail polish in red & blue, along with a clear top coat.  For this edition, we've used our Shooting Star Tattoo Nail Art

Next, apply the Tattoo Nail Art on alternating fingernails over a clean, dry nail.  Follow the instructions on the back of the tattoo sheet. 

While the nail tattoos are drying, create festive red & blue designs on the nails without shooting stars.  Our kiddo decided on stripes and polka dots (she wanted to add some dots to the shooting star nails too). More IS more, right?

Lastly, we tipped the top of each nail with a little white stripe, to give them a "french manicure" look. And voila, super patriotic nails. 

Stay tuned for more tutorials coming this week and next!
