Happy 4th of July to all my readers in the USA!
This week I saw all these designs floating around of USA nails and I wanted to join in! (even though I’m not American lol)
To make the star I made my own nail transfers (decals, tattoos, stickers). I have done this before, but only once, so I thought I would give it another try. Using a plastic bag (one that you put sandwiches in) I painted a white square onto it. Then when it was dry I cut it out into the shape I wanted and then carefully peeled it from the plastic and placed it onto my nail, sealing with a top coat. There’s a pin in my Nail Tutorials Board on Pinterest which explains it really well.
Being a Londoner, I couldn’t resist attempting UK nails. I say ‘attempt’ because it didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to. I used the same nail transfer technique to make what was supposed to be a UK heart on my ring finger, which was a but of fail on the painting front plus it was too big for my nail.
For both designs I used the exact same colours by Mavala – Deep Blue, London and White. This was the first time I’d used ‘London’ which is a true red and it was an effortless application as with the rest of the colours.
I’ll have to give UK nails another go at some point, but I hope all the American readers have a fantastic Independence Day and that everyone else has a great day too!
