We're just a few days away from Independence Day. I like to celebrate holidays on here with cute manis! This is the 4th of July mani I created last year, which is turning out to be pretty popular on Pinterest this year. Funny how that works. For this year's mani, I went with a very simple yet festive design.
I used 3 colors for this mani:
Step 1. The red was applied first, all over the nail. Then, I let it dry completely, otherwise the tape would pull up the red polish and it would be a mess!
Step 2. I put the tape on top of the red (covering 2/3 of the nail), leaving the tip exposed where I wanted to place the white. Then, I applied the white and peeled off the tape immediately. I let the white dry completely as well.
Step 3. The last step was to add the blue. I used the tape to cover part of the white and left the tip of the nail exposed. I applied the blue, peeled off the tape, and let it dry! I touched up the edges of the white very carefully with a white striper.
The end result is just a clean red, white, and blue design. My boyfriend, Mark, said my nails look like Pepsi nails! Secretly, I have to agree. As soon as I was done painting my nails, I thought the same thing. So they're 4th of July nails and Pepsi nails. I'm okay with that!
What do you think? Do they remind you of Pepsi?
