DIY It or Buy It: Rock a star-spangled mani

You’ve thought of the hair, the clothes, the shoes. Now all you need are the perf nails to wear this Fourth of July as you’re dazzled by fireworks. Search no further! The girls at GL have found (thank you Pinterest!) the perf red, white and blue mani which is sure to make family, friends, and strangers “ooh” and “ahh”! Low on time? We’ve found easy-peasy patriotic nail wraps! These are definitely rad, white, and blue. Be a star with your starry tips! 
 
OPTION ONE: TRY IT
 

What you’ll need:

-Base Coat/Top coat

-Red, white, and blue nail polish

-Avery Removable Round Labels (available at office supply stores)

-French Manicure Guide Stickers (available at drugstores)

-White nail art pen

 

What you’ll do:

1. Start off with a clear base coat, and let dry. 
 
2. Paint a coat of red nail polish on your fingers. Let dry for 30 minutes.
 
3. Cut the labels in half. Press two of the labels lengthwise on each nail, leaving a gap of red between each piece.
 
4. Fill in the gap between the two pieces with the white polish. These are the white stripes on the American flag! Let dry completely before removing the tape.
 
5. Using the French manicure guide stickers, tape off the end of your nail.

6. Paint a coat of blue on the tip and allow to dry completely.
 
7. Use the white nail art pen to draw tiny stars.

8. Top off the look with a thick layer of your fave top coat. We’re loving how fast the Seche Vite top coat dries!

OPTION TWO: BUY IT

This funky ’90s inspired nail wrap is so easy! The set comes with a nail file, cuticle stick, and 20 individual nail wraps (that you can share with a bestie or save for next year!). All you have to do is press on, file off, and presto! You’re ready to go rock those fireworks!

Get beach waves overnight! Next time you wash your hair, set it in a low bun to dry. Take the bun out the next morning, and your hair will fall in gorgeous waves.
