To create this nail look, I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow on all my nails. Then, I placed the Stars and Stripes nail vinyl decal set from KBShimmer, and painted on OPI Coca-Cola Red (from HB Beauty Bar, of course!) and KBShimmer Low and Be Bold. Then, I peeled off the vinyls and added top coat!
I think my first try with these decals ended up being a bit sloppy because I was impatient (and I was using awful tweezers to try to peel the stickers off!) Despite that, I think the finished look is very fun and very patriotic. I'm so glad I have the perfect red, white, and blue polishes to create this!
I think another reason for the sloppy work is because I haven't had as much time to paint my nails lately. I just have so many things going on, but I am really trying to fit more swatching and nail art into my schedule! I have big plans for my blog coming up, so stay tuned ;)
Here are the polishes I used to create this look.
KBShimmer nail vinyl decals are available in sheets for $5 USD each on their website, and come in several different patterns. I am excited to try them again (maybe the chevrons next time?!) and I promise I will be more patient with application. Don't forget to follow KBShimmer on Facebook for news and updates.
