Happy 4th of July!

Hello everyone! Happy 4th of July!  I hope that you all have a wonderful day celebrating tomorrow!  I personally will be working for part of the day but after that I will be relaxing with my family.  Today I have some 4th of July nail art for you!  I used Zoya Charla and China Glaze Ruby Pumps as my polish colors for this manicure, and to create the rest of the design I used Kiss nail art decal stars and white striping tape.

I painted Charla on my thumb and pointer fingers to create the blue background for the stars on the flag.  Then I painted Ruby Pumps on my last three fingers and added white striping tape to make it look like the American flag.  It was definitely an experience working with the striping tape so much in one manicure, but towards the end I got a much better hand on how to use it successfully.  I also made sure to put many layers of top coat to help prevent the stars from falling off, and also to prevent the striping tape from curling and pealing.  So far they are holding up well, but we will see what tomorrow brings!
