DIY- Patriotic Nails

I can't believe the 4th of July is already tomorrow....and we are already half way through the year! The year has just flown by so fast. Since I lack really any patriotic clothing I created this simple nail design for the upcoming holiday. Keep reading to see how I achieved this look.
What you'll need:

Red Polish- OPI Ali's Big Break
Blue Polish- Orly Witch's Blue
White Polish- L.A. Colors White
Top Coat
Scotch Tape
Nail Dotter
Nail Polish Remover
Q tips
First, paint nails the red color of your choice. I did 2 coats.
Tear a piece of scotch tape off and stick it on the back of your hand a few times so it is not so sticky...it'll pull up your base coat if it is too sticky. Then place at an angle.
Paint your blue color onto your nail.
When the blue coat is dry, carefully peel back the scotch tape. This is what you should have so far.
On a piece of plastic or paper plate, make a small pool of white nail polish.
Using a dotter, dip into white nail polish and create little dots of the blue portion of your nail.
All finished!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday tomorrow!
