Frosted Flags
Topic: Nail Art

I've welcomed summer by decorating the house with red, white and blue items as I do most every year. Soon after, my manicure began to chip so I decided to carry that theme onto the new nail enamel.

I chose a berry red, shimmery blue and silver to work with. Red was first applied in wide stripes to the the outer edges of the nails leaving a wide opening in the middle on the diagonal. I skipped the ring finger on each hand.

Those ring fingers got solid blue.

After giving all the colors a second coat and letting it set I went back to the red nails and added a wide silver stripe across the open area. Then the blue nails got tiny dots of silver.

I added a second coat of silver to the red nails and let everything set.

Finally, I gave everything a coat of clear that has a fine irridescent glitter in it (this is the 'frosting' refered to in the title). A coat of topcoat protects the finish.


These are all Dollar Tree polishes and a manicure will last about 10 to 12 days.


I'm hoping this lasts until the 4th of July and then I'll think of something else fun to do.
