manic MANI MONDAY: PATRIOTIC

We got this red, blue and sliver glitter nail polish in our Julep box the other day and decided it would be perfect for a "Fourth of July" manicure. I wanted to keep it simple but obvious so here is what I did...

Paint your nails white. Coat all nails with glitter nail polish except for your ring finger.

Place a dot of navy nail polish in the center of the blank nail.

Using a nail (or pointed object of your choosing) drag the polish out into five points.

Fill in the star shape and coat with a clear top coat and it's as simple as that! I don't know if you can tell in the picture above but the Julep nail polish has little silver stars among the glitter. It's kind of fun!
