NOTD: American Flag Nail Art for Memorial Day

It’s Memorial Day, Americans!

Today’s the day that we honor our fallen, spend time with family and friends, and have a barbecue.

It’s also the unofficial start to summer!

So, you know me. If there’s some type of holiday or occasion, I like to do my nails to match. Since today’s holiday is such a patriotic one, I thought…why not do some American flag nail art?!

Here’s what I came up with:

NOTD: American Flag Nail Art -- Patriotic NailsThe American flag is separated into two parts: white stars on a field of blue, and red and white stripes. So, I sectioned things off. Two fingers would be blue with white stars, and three would be white with red stripes.

American Flag Nail Art - Patriotic Nail PolishTo get this patriotic manicure, I…

  1. Painted three nails (per hand) white with Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Snow Me White.
  2. Painted two nails (per hand) blue with Essie Nail Polish in Avenue Maintain.
  3. Used a star stencil from the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Tool Kit, and used the white nail polish to create a star on each blue nail.
  4. Used the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Pens in Red to draw stripes on the white nails.
  5. Covered everything in a clear top coat.

What do you think of my American flag nail art?

Frankly, I’m super happy with it. I keep staring at it, and that’s always a good sign that you did a good job, right?

What are you doing for the holiday?

Doing anything special? I’m going to a barbecue!

And if you’re international, will it just be business as usual, today?

Let’s chat about it in the comments!
