Nautical Nail Striping Trick

I've never been one to take holiday designs to my clothing or nails in any literal sense, so here's my take on 4th of July colors. You get most of the colors without looking like a walking American flag. Plus this is a trick you could use on any other color combo (including red and white, if you really want to look like the flag).


  • Household scotch tape
  • Scissors
  • Any Base Coat (Sally Hansen Nail Hardener - Clear)
  • Blue Nail Polish (Revlon Colorstay - 180 Indigo Night)
  • White Nail Polish (Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear - 300 White On)
  • Clear Top Coat (Sally Hansen No Chip Acrylic Top Coat)
