Happy Memorial Day

Hi there!

I hope all of you who recognize it are having a great Memorial Day weekend! These are the nails I painted for the occasion...

My nails painted with China Glaze - Hey Sailor and First Mate.
Patriotic Memorial Day or 4th of July manicure.

I painted 1 coat of Hey Sailor, let it dry, then added 3 stripes of white striper polish. Once that was dry, I added top coat to smooth it out. Then I diagonally applied striper tape and painted 1 coat of First Mate. I let it sit for about 30 seconds before peeling the tape off. I topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.

This manicure really was easier to accomplish than it might seem!

Is this something you'll try... perhaps with different colors?

Until next time...
