I started with a base of Essie Urban Jungle on all nails. Then, I taped off sections with striping tape and painted on Essie Haute in the Heat, and Essie Strut Your Stuff. I topped it all off with a quick drying top coat.
I love how this turned out! It almost reminds me of little abstract sailboats. I think it's a nice, refreshing take on the usual patriotic manicure. I probably could have used a second layer of top coat to really smooth it out, though!
I hope I will have time to do more nail art before the 4th of July. (Or at least, before July 2nd, which happens to be my 23rd birthday!)
Here is a visual of the polishes I used. I will be swatching this whole collection soon! (You can pick them up here.) What do you think of this manicure?
These polishes were provided for my honest review.
