Happy Fourth of July my American buddies! To everyone else, look Captain America nail art! :-D If you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen my original version of my Captain America nails. I decided to tweak them for the holiday.
My pointer and ring fingers were painted with three coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On. It was a decent white, and if you were careful with the brush strokes, two coats would have probably been fine. I did the red stripes with striping tape and OPI's Big Apple Red. Big Apple Red is my go to stock red. It is a good, classic red and goes on opaque with two coats. My middle finger is Sinful Colors' Endless Blue and pinkie is Julep's America the Beautiful. For my thumb, I used my red, white and blue polishes to paint Captain America's shield. Finally the big white stars are actually from a star shaped paper punch from the scrapbooking section of Walmart. :-) I painted thick coats of white polish on a sandwich bag. Once it was dry, I pealed off the paint and punched the star shaped holes out. I pressed them on to my still wet polish and voila! Easy nail polish stickers!
