Thank you for coming back and taking a peek at our 3rd day of 4th of July nails !

Today’s design is what I like to call Patriotic Tye Dye. I came across a similar design (with different colors) on Pinterest and I thought it would be an awesome effect to try for 4th of July. The design is messy and fun.

You’ll need:

  1. White nail polish
  2. Royal blue nail polish
  3. Bright red nail polish
  4. make-up wedge (latex-free)
  5. Flat, angled paint brush
  6. Nail polish remover

Step 1: Take your wedge sponge and dab a drop of each polish on a corner of the wedge sponge ( I recommend you used a latex-free sponge, as it is less porous). Allow the colors to overlap each other.

Step 2: Take the sponge and start dabbing it on your fingernail until nail is completely covered.

Step 3: Allow polish to dry and then take the angled paint brush, dip it in nail polish remover and clean up any messy edges.

Step 4: If you wish, add some subtle glitter, if not go ahead and add some top coat and walaaah!

Thank you for stopping by and stay tuned for the final 4th of July post tomorrow!

Happy 4th of July!!!

As you may know, stars and stripes are what make up the U.S. flag, which also served as the inspiration to this tutorial. Remember to wear your red, white, and blue on this holiday.
