Happy 4th of July to everyone who celebrates it! I have been rocking this mani all week, I originally designed it for the US Men's World Cup soccer team on Tuesday and have kept it on because well... it's kinda rad.
I started with a white base on all the nails because I wasn't sure which way I was going... for the blue I used Zoya Ling which isn't a perfect American blue but I like that it's lighter in color. The red is Coca-Cola Red from OPI and the white is the amazing Finger Paints Paper Mache. I added some chevron stripes using vinyls as templates then pulled out the rhinestones! I went a bit overboard on my index finger but that was the first one I did so I didn't know any better :) I like the way the 3 silver stars look on my ring finger. On my right hand I have everything opposite, so I have 3 blue nails and 2 chevron striped. I love doing this when wearing a skittle mani, makes it more interesting to opposite the pattern. I have a few more for you that I'll keep posting over the weekend... it is after all, a holiday weekend full of slacking :)
