Nail Day

I got my nails redone and I wanted something that would work for 4th of July but since the nails last so long, I wanted more red, white, and blue themed rather than patriotic so it wouldn't look weird after the holiday. This is what I came up with :)

It's red gel, silver glitter with gel on the middle finger, and then white gel with hand painted blue stripes. The heart is 3D art but pressed flat so it doesn't stick up really high.

    1. You have to find a salon to do it... They use acrylic.

    1. It was just the brightest red they carried at the salon... Sorry, I don't know the actual color. Any orange based red rather than blue based red should work!

    1. Hi! The middle finger is actual glitter powder mixed with clear gel. After she puts a clear coat of gel so it's smooth.
