4th of July Nail Art Blog Switch with Polished Pathology!

4th of July Nail Art Blog Switch with Mindfully Polished - Press Samples/Purchased by Me

I'm so excited to be doing a blog switch with Jenne from Polished Pathology! Read below to see her amazing 4th of July mani, then jump over to her blog to see what I created! 

Hey guys, Jenne here! Today I am switching with Megan from Mindfully Polished. I've been watching her swatching style grow over the past couple months and have been really impressed. Also, WE HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY! When I found that out, I asked if she wanted to do a blog switch with nail art that celebrated our birthday. She said yes! I can't wait to show you what I did, so let's get to the polishes!

  1. Sinful Colors GoGo Girl
  2. Sinful Colors Endless Blue
  3. Color Club Just My Luck
  4. Salon Perfect Sugar Cube
  5. Chaos & Crocodiles Black Ops
  6. Zeva Triple Strength Nail Guard
  7. Glisten & Glow HK Girl
  8. Vibrant Vinyls Liquid Latex
  9. Vibrant Vinyls 4th of July Sampler Pack
  10. Vibrant Vinyls Skinny Rays stencil

step-1 Do your watermarble! I did a marble of Sinful Colors GoGo Girl, Color Club Just My Luck, and Sinful Colors Endless Blue. I'm including a video tutorial at the end :) I realize this isn't truly a good 'step 1' but it's my birthday. I can do what I want. Fourth of July Nail Art

life Fourth of July Nail Art Add the vinyls! I used the 4th of July Sampler pack and the Skinny Rays stencil from Vibrant Vinyls. If you have a leg or two of the stars off your nail and onto the ski, the stars are easy to remove and you won't damage the design underneath. I was going for a firework look for my middle fingers. Paint over with your choice of color (I used Salon Perfect Sugar Cube and Chaos & Crocodiles Black Ops). For some, it might be easier to sponge the color on top, which helps with flooding. I didn't have any issues with the colors I chose.

3 Fourth of July Nail Art Remove the vinyls, top coat, and you're done! I used tweezers to help with removal, and that made things pretty easy. I LOVE how they turned out, what do you guys think? Fourth of July Nail Art
