4th of July Nails

Happy 4th of July to all my readers who celebrate! I am actually in Canada visiting family for the long weekend, but am showing some patriotic pride through my nails and my blue top that I’m wearing today (a post featuring what I wore throughout my trip coming soon).

After looking at different July 4th inspired nail art online, I decided to do one that looked the easiest to do. Here is what I did and please keep in mind that I am not a good nail artist! I definitely need more practice because my hands aren’t that steady. I did the best I could and of course my left hand looks better than my right since I’m right handed therefore I only took pictures of my left hand 🙂

I’m glad I did because I can’t even tell you how many times I almost painted my ring finger blue until I saw the white there. Once I start painting it’s like I’m on autopilot so it was a good idea to paint that one ahead of time.
