Independence Day Nail Art

independence day nail art 4th of july

I honestly couldn't think of yet another way to paint stripes and stars. Instead, I decided to take inspiration from something other than the American flag. Sue me!

Then again...when I say 'inspiration' I mean I completely copied Nail Anarchy after seeing her design in this month's Scratch magazine. And let's just say she's not the only one featuring in the magazine. Hint: it's me.

But back to the design. I researched some American street names and decided on a few short ones. It turns out that I would need about an inch more of nail and an insane amount of patience to make 'HOLLYWOOD BLVD' fit in. And possibly therapy.

A while ago I was sent a parcel from Madam Glam and since Lime Mint* looks exactly like the street sign colour, it seemed the perfect opportunity to test it out. The shade is a one step gel, meaning it's a colour, base and top all in one. Oh, it also doesn't leave a tacky layer and pays your taxes (possibly). It was opaque in 3 thin coats. I used Color Club Nail Art Pen* for the words and outlines which featured in the Donut themed MeeBox.

What are we thinking, YAY or NAY? To see some stars and stripes have a look at this design from a few years back when I celebrated the 4th of July in Las Vegas. Someone, take me back!
